Thread: Boom Presets

    Boom Presets

    Having cranked the Boom back into life with so much help from Forum members (esp. Michael), i am left with one last small issue. The presets won't work properly. Having set the six I want, I find if I go from one to another, it tends to take the station I was last listening to with it, so I wind up with the same station on buttons 3, 4, 5, and 6. For some reason, preset buttons 1 & 2 hold the stations in memory. I've tried a factory reset, but that didn't fix things. Not a massive problem, but if there is a simple solution, I'd be happy to know what it is.

    Sounds like your pressing the button for too long.

    Press and hold to store a station, short press to play it.

    If you have LMS running locally, you can use the "Presets editor" plugin to store your stations/playlists/favourites.

    Boom Presets

    Well I've tried that. LMS is shown as running, but when I reach the page you show, if I click on Players I see the message "The Player was not found". I've tried everything I can think of, including resetting the account with a new password. Even tried a factory reset, but no luck. I've just noticed too, that what appears to be happening which is very confusing is that when i press one of the preset buttons, the Boom connects to the correct station, but shows a totally different one on the display. The display also reverts to the date and time after a few seconds. I'm sure it used to show the station detail as a continuous crawl across the screen.

    Is your player connected to LMS or mysqueezebox.com, it can't be connected to both at the same time?

    Ah. I see what you mean, I think. If I connect to LMS, then it doesn't want to play anything. It just shows the station. It used to be so simple, and I never had these problems when I first got it. I'll check out the LMS Display page and see whether it now shows the Player has been found and re post. Thanks for your patience and help.

    Boom Presets

    I've switched to LMS, but nothing plays. I've clicked on "My Presets" on the Boom, But get a message "Error on HTTP Socket".

    Probably not relevant but your MySqueezebox presets will not show up when your player is connected to LMS. You will need to set new ones.

    I'll try that. But may just use MySqueezebox and not bother with the presets. They used to work. Not that all important. Only 6 sations, so I have to scroll to find them anyway.
