I’ve had nothing but problems since migrating from running LMS on a ReadyNAS 104 to my EX4100, so I’m hoping someone here can help. The first issue I had was with my playlists seeming to disappear all on their own. I did some searching and found the answer was to move the playlist to the same directory as the music folder, and that worked. However the biggest headache I have is that LMS will sometimes just up and stop playing for no reason. Most of the time when that happens, I also have trouble accessing the LMS GUI via the web (it’s either unresponsive or very slow loading the page). Usually it stops after a song has finished, and if enough time has passed (like if it stopped playing while I was away), I can simply click the play button and get things going again. LMS will stop multiple times a day and it’s really getting aggravating.
My collection is modest, just over 2400 mp3’s, stored in groups of 500, so 5 folders. I run LMS on the EX4100 and and connect using SqueezePlay on 3 PC’s. I also connect 2 Android devices, but LMS stops whether they’re being used or not. I also store screensaver images on the EX4100, and the same 3 PC’s use those images all at the same time. LMS is V7.7.2 - 33893 and firmware on the EX4100 is 2.31.149. My entire Gigabit network is hard wired, the EX4100 connects to a DLink 16 port switch that’s connected to a Netgear router. Please, does anyone have any suggestions on getting this resolved?
Here’s an example of what I see when LMS stops working. The song timer keeps running, and the playlist is blank. This is the forth time in just 6 hours LMS has stopped, and I currently have just one device streaming (my phone), so I don’t think it’s a bandwidth issue.
