Hi folks.

TT 3.0 - the tool - is ready for release now.
I hopefully got all the little issues fixed.

I now need to prepare the documentation stuff around it.

It'll take me a day or two.


The feature list reads as follows:

* heavily improved installation process
* full integration of all mods into just one tool
* help function

sound related:

* task priority tuning
* networking parameter tuning
* networking configuration related adjustments
* kernel parameter adjustments
* screen on/off during operations (no more reboot required)
* infrared on/off
* exclusive audio routing
* the daemon killer (you'll love that one)
* volume lock at 100 % (for testing purposes)

* tested on systems up to SBS 7.7.0

Stay tuned.

I'll be back.

Hi soundcheck,

Just got a squeezebox today. And ofcourse I would like to try your toolbox.

Would you suggest I get used to the sound of the touch before I do any updates?

In any case I tried to use WinSCP. And as described I used:

Start WinScp.

1. Enter the Touch IP address in the "Hostname" field.
2. As user you enter "root", as password you enter "1234"
3. As protocol you select "SCP"
4. Press "Login" and confirm the pop-up (ssh key generation) with yes.

I found the ip address for the touch. But are the username and password really as given? And what port number should I use.

I'm asking because the connection gets refused.

Network error: Software caused connection abort.

Bas, you have to enable SSH in the Touch advanced menu. On the acutal squeezebox touch. otherwise connection will be refused.

You should start with the stock Touch to get used to it. But don't overdo things.

I can tell you operating the box at stock level I consider quite disappointing and boring. You'll get what you pay for.
It requires a certain ambition level to make that device sing. The good thing about is that
the device got the potential.

Logitech should have launched a no frill black box digital only streaming device as lean as it possibly can get. I wouldn't expect such a device to cost more then 100$. They
could sell these like mushrooms.

Cheers

I have had the Squeezebox 3 for years. Always through ethernet. I've been using a RAKK DAC mk2. Had a linear psu (which I'm using for the touch). And I found the touch out of the box better as a transport.

Cliché coming up: It sounds more analog. Less shouty. Quite suprised already especially since I only use it as a transport.

Folks.

Status Update

My "norwegian beta-test branch" , reported slight instabilities of TT3.0 last night.

I hoped that I got the reporeted issue under control.

I need to look into it. Sorry.

As soon as I get it fixed TT3.0 will be released.

Cheers
