Ok,  Chris thank you for your info. With the keep alive function, i was referring to the MPD Watch option. It nailed this issue (not only like a skipping cd when left on a internet radio station, but also certain to complete unresponsiveness of the bdp) before, and thought it might not haven been implemented yet.  Would really make our lives easier if you'd flip that in your current roadmap with some priority ;-)

The play function is something i asked you about before, so i am excited it made it to the new interface. Only make it warn the user for playing a complete harddrive (as mentioned, it started to play 2 Tb drive and taking over the machine, rendering it unresponsive to any input, other then a hard reboot.) u say it has to update the database, but wasnt  the idea it wouldn't have to? Just insert and play? Even make it browsable instead of updating the complete drive first?

cheers, and thanks, keep up the good work!
Marius

o, and please, the last.fm thing. Are we logged in as bryston there, or is this also nonfunctional. Otherwise, please fix that also?
the picture i posted was for fun, only to show the bdp starting playing my Klassiek drive, and showing your Daft Punk fillers...

Hi Marius,

I'm not entirely sure what your asking, but i'll try to provide some information.  Currently we are working with web designers who create the HTML and CSS, they fill the page with temp data (ie Daft Punk).  The javascript/ajax/php/etc then replace this temp data with actual data.  Once the web design is done, this temp data will be replaced with more appropriate default values.  last.fm and everything on the MPD page is none functional, currently i am working on the disk information page and this will hoepfully be somewhat functional tonight.  Next i plan on working on the NAS setup and MPD pages, after which i plan on resuming work on the player. 

There are also additional issue's in regards to initial upgrading that seem to be causing havoc (error 09 upon upgrading) with some units that we are also currently working on pinning down.

I'm not sure what you mean by the "keep alive function"?  If your referring to the BDP locking up and replaying the same half second then i guess that answers the following question.

By the way has anyone tried playing back audio over night using manic moose only to find it frozen the following day?  I've had my BDP-2 running for four days straight, looping the same six albums.

The Play <drive name> is a intended addition, the idea is your buddy comes by, you plug in the thumb drive, wait for it to update the database, click the button, it adds the contents to the playlist and starts playing the first song.  The downside is if you have more then a few hundred songs on the drive; the playlist is to large for most devices to handle the large playlist that gets created.

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Marius,

Last.fm is completely non functional, all your seeing is filler.  I do intend on creating a web front end for mplayer some time down the road.  This would give people the ability to play back audio files without the need to load them into MPD first.  The downsides would be you'd need to use our web GUI to playback audio files.  For those who are unaware of what mplayer is, it's a program capable of playing back almost any kind of media file.

I'm nearly done disk information, hopefully I'll be done tomorrow and will get started on the MPD page.  Until then you should be able to use the services page to stop MPD and start it backup without restarting the unit.

Cheers,
Chrs

HI Chris,

That's just the thing, when it hangs, Manic Moose shows a different interface. How to stop/start the MPD on services, when it looks like this?




Np, i'll wait a few days..

Hi Marius,

Log in via ssh and enter the following commands:

fsck.vfat -r /dev/sda1
reboot

If you could email or post the results of fsck, that would be fantastic.

Cheers

HI,

I was able yes, it worked (took me a while to realise the updating had finished, cause there's nog progress indicator....) even pressed the install button again, no warning issued ..





Still, im not able to browse the bdp in Mac Finder anymore, and ssh 'ing  gives me the extreme warnings i mailed you before, when using root@bryston-bdp-1.local , and gives this, when using the root@ip.adress.x.x

HI Chris,

Where's the update button gone? Updating the library that is, not the firmware?

Hi Marius,

In the upper left corner you should see three buttons next to each other

Update/Clear/Consume

Right , of course  :duh:
Missed that. Didn't get any visual feedback it was actually updating. You could fix that? It worked though :thumb:
Thanks....

Hi Marius,

For the most part everything that has been developed hasn't been thoroughly tested so there are bound to be something not working quite right.  Not to mention with so much development going on some thing that work now may break with a future release, one of the reasons I designed the "advanced" update page to allow users to roll back to previous versions.

Cheers,
Chris

Got it Chris, all the more fun to test those upgrades. Hit the next one on us volunteers.

Cheers to you,

So you responded promptly with the latest build! Great, more fun to explore. I noticed you updated Mpd to 17.5. There's been a lot of development lately at mpd, any reason not to follow suit? They're quite a bit ahead: http://www.musicpd.org

Hi Marius,

Thanks for pointing that out, simply put 0.17.5 was the latest version when i had originally compiled the new version of MPD back in August.  Since then i have been focusing on the web interface, dlna renderer and the airplay feature.  I will look into upgrading 0.17.5 to 0.17.6 and building 0.18.5 package.

Cheers,
Chris

Thank you Chris,

Things are getting better and better. On the MPD page you said settings are done now, but when i select MPD Watch and Apply, Im thrown back to MPD version 15.2 and bryston appears again on the last.fm login page...? Those login credentials still don't stick btw. Something's not right.

And, Shairplay: I seem to be able to select it on clients machines, but, nothing happens on the BDP side, and, sometimes i have to disable shairply altogether to be able to play anything again. That is to say, have the bdp make any sound. It seems to play alright, all progress bars are moving, but no music is played. Unselecting shairply then makes it work again.

Hi Chris,

I tried to upgrade to Manic Moose.  It failed several times.  I have pasted the errors below.  It is very possible that my internet connection is not the best.  I have to use Verizon wireless internet because I won't get a land based internet connection until the FCC starts making the payments to the carriers that were promised to them some years ago.  Unfortunately, downloads can fail checksum because of the connection.  So, is there a link to the bin file I need so I can download it at Starbucks onto a USB drive and update the BDP-2 from there?

Any idea why the USB out to the DAC would suddenly stop working, and unable to get it working, after a month of working fine.  Happens under the Looney Loons release.

Thanks, Larry
