    Can't play from any radio station

    I have a LMS running on a Linux Ubuntu server and three RPi players with Max2Play software.
    Up to yesterday everything was running smoothly; radio stations were accessible.
    Since today I can't access any radio station. I get an error message: "Could'nt resolve IP adress for: opml.radiotime.com".
    I upgraded from LMS 8.1.1 to 8.1.2 to 8.2, still the same error.

    Any idea what's going wrong??

    Regards
    Rainer

    Your DNS server (or relay) isn't working properly.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I am using pi-hole as internal DNS server but I have had no problems with that configuration for a long time.
    Anything must have changed ... but I have not changed anything regarding pi-hole ...

    Do you understand what pi-hole actually does? The error couldn’t be clearer.

    Rainer,
    what happens if you try
    ping opml.radiotime.com

    If it works from your desktop ... try it from your LMS machine.
    If it does not work then check your logs on pi-hole.

    I just realized that there is a problem is with my Ubuntu server: restarting the server solved my problem (at least for the moment).

    Thanks for your friendly help ... being not so deep in software topics I learn through „try-and-error“. To be honest I do not know „what pi-hole actually does“ ... but having solved my problem in the moment (through restarting my server) is a step forward for me.

    Regards

    I shouldn’t have been rude.
    The error message said “problem with DNS server” and is an easy networking thing to fix in most cases.
    In a normal domestic set up DNS is handled by your router.
    Your reply about pi-hole coupled with the lack of understanding of the error was a surprise.
    It’s not normal to use something like pi-hole if you don’t know how DNS works. The whole point of pi-hole is to replace normal DNS with a deliberately limited one. It stops baddies but also stops some goodies as a result.
    Sorry but trial and error is sometimes not the best approach.
