How To: Easy synchronised multiroom audio (inc. Spotify!) using XSqueeze in XBMC
#34
Ok, the reason the way it works as it does is that it's emulating a hardware player that had that exact two line display - it just embeds this display into the screen, and for people who use Squeezeboxes it's very familiar.

Now, if it's not reacting, that means that the LMS server is either not getting the messages, or not reacting to them (xbmc/xsqueeze is just a dumb player/screen in this context, with the server handling all control etc). Given it worked when you reboot the windows box (and you'd want to restart XSqueeze each time after doing that) - we know there's no config problem. Most likely the server was busy scanning your music library or something, and got upset maybe? You'd have to look at the LMS logs to see what was going on. Othjerwise it might be a network traffic issue - is your network all stable etc?

Note, you don't have to use the two line display to control things per se - you can select music by hitting 'i' (info) and starting the chooser...then when it is playing, your remote keys like play/stop/etc should all work pretty much as normal.

Sorry, no help w/out a *full debug log*
