Have you tried connecting to the BDP by specifying the IP address?

\\<bdps ip address>\

Chris

Sorry if I am being dense here.
Yes I can connect to the MM dashboard using my internet browser and the IP address but how do I get from there to copying music?

Hi Bryston People,

I don't know why a TIDAL playlist would show song info and art for some artists (Duran Duran/Roxy Music/etc) and nothing for other artists (Blue Monday song...artist not shown).  Plus the song titles are numeric garbage!

I have a BDP-1 with updated firmware S2.44.
Tidal is on lossless.
MPD settings allow for Bryston DB, scraping etc
Reboot the system.
Nothing amiss when I check playlists using tidal app on laptop.
I searched Audio Circle for a similar issue and solution before asking.



Any help would be helpful!   

Thanks,
Richard

Very sorry but whatever you are trying to get me to do - I cannot get to work


Other devices on my network are available.
If I type the ip address in the top line  - then Internet Explorer is launched and I am at The Dashboard
At a loss as to what I am supposed to be doing

Addendum

I have found that a second Win 7 PC on the network can "see" the BDP 2 in Windows Explorer and so I can copy music from it.
My main PC can see everything except the Bryston.
So go figure !!!

I know at one stage Microsoft released a version of Windows 10 that couldn’t see old Samba based connections and you had to get in and change some settings in Windows. I can’t remember the details and you say you’re using Windows 7 but maybe there is a related update that caused this in Windows 7 as well.
I’m sure this is a Microsoft issue.

Have you tried to reset rather then restart the network settings or perform a factory reset?

Chris


I did now, but I’d required some fast typing before the BDP disappears from the web interface
It stood some time with the U symbol on (I assume it did reset to factory settings) after that the symbol changes to full square/dot and the interface is as on the picture. It’s not responding to any actions through the web interface, but responds just fine to its own onboard controls and plays music just fine
I can still see it as wired client through the router interface showing IP and MAC
Can I try anything else? Thank you!

May be this is the indication of a problem?


But it’s still unclear why the player does become visible/discoverable albeit for a very short time

*WHEW* First post ! Been a while since I was last on any message boards, looks like the antispam features have advanced abit..

Hi ! Audiophile from Canada (Alberta) and am looking for a helpful hint (not allowed to search posts yet and was only able to jump through a few dozen pages looking for help - before joining).

Bryston BDP-2 latest firmware [for the sake of simplicity, presume the following has been done: boot/reboot/reset to factory/pwr on/pwr off/single 128gb usb key(worked AOK a few months ago, the last time I had this out with a teac DAC and headphones)/control via mac/firefox/ipad/safari is "ok"] - if this is of note, everything unplugged on boot up BDP chirps 1 time. with a USB and P6 in 3 times..

I have just purchased a Parasound P6 to use with the BDP-2 (as a DAC/2.1 pre/decent phono stage etc), they ar not playing nice.

The challenge:

When I plug the Parasound into the BDP-2, the dashboard updates seeing the P6 - "Parasound - USB Audio (DSD Enabled)" with a second entry below "Parasound - USB Audio #1 (DSD Enabled)", great news! 
luck of the draw if MPD stays active for a few seconds then just shuts down or is completely inactive (I have powered up BDP first, P6 first with no predictable change).
With mpd down although the USB disk with music is visible in disk information, player does not have access to it.
Twice I have been able to rapidly select a track and have 1 sec of music release befor MPD gets grumpy.

Direction is appreciated,

THANK YOU!!

The BDP-2 has two network connections, so it's normal that one of them would be down.

Using the down arrow button on the from of the unit you can check the status of the network interfaces and should tell you if both interfaces are down or if one if the interfaces is still reporting an IP address.

Hi,

Is your music stored on a usb drive?

Each input has a button labeled either enable or disable to either enable or disable the interface and as your dac is displaying two interfaces it could be you need to disable one of the two.

Afternoon, thank you for the quick response.

-Music is stored on a USB (at my fathers recommendation/who has a BDP-2 as well) I have un-mounted and re-mounted the USB key in multiple ports.
-Under "Audio Devices" clicking the Enable/Disable or unmarking the check box only results in it being re-enabled automatically.

UPDATE
USB installed in back of BDP-2, stopped and started MPD manually; I now have access to music in the player AND we have playback.

Playback is interspersed with short .5 sec burst of static, randomly. (multiple compressed formats, flac, wav tested so far with various file sizes. I have not dared any of my DSD or high bit rate PCM files yet)

Thanks again for any help!

Both of them are showing as “down”
Also when I scroll with the down button both eth0 and eth1 show “offline”
