    Updating max2play on Raspberry Pi

    This is a discussion I started in the BBC Sounds plugin thread, but as it turns out it's a separate issue, I thought I'd better post a new thread here.

    Ronnie (man in a van) posted the following below in that thread:

    I did a test M2P last week.

    I installed this image (buster) on a rpi

    https://www.max2play.com/en/download/46152/

    Checked that it was up to date

    Then navigated to the Squeezebox page

    on this page, at the top, there is a box from which one can select a LMS version

    I copied and pasted this link int o the box and it loaded without a problem

    http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nig...569900_arm.deb

    Be sure to make a copy of your current image before you update LMS

    The second part looks easy, as Ronnie clearly shows which box to paste the url, but I do need more detail about installing the image on the Raspberry Pi. If I download that link it will go to the Mac hard drive. Do I then drag & drop the download into the max2play icon that shows up on the local network?

    Thanks.

    I think this is what you need to follow.

    Thanks. I may try that later. How do I copy what's already on the SD card in case something goes wrong? I'd hate to lose all my favourites and have to start from scratch.

    Use an SD card copier / writer ... can go in either direction.
    e.g. BalenaEtcher
    Just take care over the direction and device names.

    On a Mac use Apple pi baker (2nd version) always a good thing to have a back up.

    You can copy the prefs and favs from max2play and install them later

    Or get another SD card. They always come in handy.
