    Squeezer periodically unable to find Streamer/Server

    Got an intermittent problem that is doing my head in!

    I use the Squeezer app on my Samsung Galaxy S9 to play music through my hifi system stored on my Innuos Zen Mk3 Streamer/Server. The Zen feeds via USB cable into a Chord Dave DAC and into my amps and speakers.

    I also access my Zen using Squeeze Remote on a Windows laptop. And also using the iPeng app on an Apple iPad. All devices are connected to my home WiFi.

    Much of the time Squeezer on my Galaxy S9 phone works fine, but every week or so I suddenly find that Squeezer is unable to find the Zen server - I get an error message "Connection failed". But I can still connect to the Zen from my laptop and from my iPad using the same IP address as usual. I have tried turning things off and then on again - does not help. I have tried rescanning on Squeezer for the Zen - still can't find it. I have tried manually typing in the IP address - still can't find it. The problem typically persists for a few days, even a week, then suddenly for no apparent reason it starts working again OK! Then Squeezer might run OK for another week or so, but eventually the fault happens again!

    Does anyone have any ideas what is wrong?

    I think you've posted in the wrong forum here, which might explain the lack of response. Maybe the Third Party Hardware forum might be a better place.
    I've heard of Squeezer, but not the Innuos Zen. Presumably something in your setup is running LMS, and there's a player connected to that?

    Why not install the Material Skin and Music and Artist information plugins

    and use a web browser on your phone (I use Kiwi browser just for Material, on my old G Moto)
