Ohplayer receiver blocks other receivers trying to connect to same sender

Ohplayer receiver blocks other receivers trying to connect to same sender
Hi,

If I "tune in" the ohplayer (1.0.6 piheadless ) receiver to songcast from one of my Linn players it works fine. If I then try to connect another Linn songcast receiver to that same sender (or to the already connected ohplayer ) it is somehow blocked. Only if I change source on the ohplayer to eg playlist, the other player in my network will connect. Why is this? Thanks in advance!

RE: Ohplayer receiver blocks other receivers trying to connect to same sender
Hi Latka,

Can I just confirm your configuration please?
- You have a Linn DS with the tuneIn radio source selected.
- You create a songcast group with the Linn DS as sender, and add
a linux ohPlayer as a receiver
- You then try to add another Linn DS as a receiver, but it fails to connect

You shouldn't try to connect your second Linn DS to the ohPlayer as a receiver as it is not set up as a sender in this configuration.

Having said that, you should be able to add other Linn DS or ohPlayers as receivers for the original Linn DS.

If you add the second DS as a receiver *before* you add the ohPlayer, do they connect ok?

Can you tell me which firmware versions you are using on the Linn DS streamers as well please?

Thanks,
Pete

Hi Pete!

Sorry for being unclear. I did not mean TuneIn radio. Only plain songcast.

1. Linn DS 1 plays a playlist.
2. Ohplayer receiver plays Linn DS 1's Sender stream. All is fine.
3. Linn DS 2 receiver tries to Play the sender from Linn DS 1 but cannot connect.
4. When I select some other source than receiver on ohplayer and repeat step 3 above, it works.

It works fine when there is no ohplayer in the group.

Linn players are on Davaar 25 and 35.

Cheers

You should be able to songcast between these versions and ohPlayer but this is largely untested. The Linn DS songcast code used in Davaar 54 is much closer to ohPlayer - can you try updating your DSes to this?

Hi Simon,

Thanks for the response. Now all my Linn players are updated to Davaar 55. Unfortunately the problem persists.

In Kinsky the ohu address is shown in the upper left corner and it keps spinning where the time usually is.
