i tell squeezelite to use USB audio and xbmc HDMI. Still crashes...

Can i easily modify your plugin to enable background listening ?

Xsqueeze uses that player so if it crashes, you'll have to fix that first.

Have you trie using squeezeslave instead?

Thanks...I'm going to test this out this weekend. Trying to avoid an expensive Sonos setup.

Hi, i have set up xsqueeze under

Win 7 xbmc
Asus EEB openelec
Raspbmc

Everything works fine, i can control 3 different rooms with iphone / ipad , i ' ve only to syncronize music on all 3 systems from the web .

The only problem i've seen is that i've put on raspbmc an internet radio through xsqueeze which i use in the morning(bath Smile ), i turn off speakers when i go to work and i turn on it every morning.
It is always mute. i ve to unplug power to raspmbc and replug, system is set up to execute xsqueeze automatically and after few second music restart plaing.

Someone knows if there is some option wich put rasbmc into a sleep mode or similar?
Thank you

Glad you've got it running! No idea on pi sleep though, I gave up on my Pi for xbmc pretty quickly, just too slow for my taste.

I was planning to add a sync/unsync control in xsqueeze itself but haven't had time. Maybe one day - but I think the vast bulk of people use the web interface or their phone etc to control it, which makes it easy anyway
