I have just installed my first ever Pi MusicBox—very exciting! Installation went all according to plan, Spotify playlists loaded without a trouble (despite a couple of warnings and FAIL messages during startup).
However, I’m failing to get MPDroid to find my installation. I’ve tried both http://musicbox.local and the actual ip address (http://192.168.1.xxx). In both cases, I get the following messages:
Connection to MPD_Server failed! Check if the Server is running and reachable. (Unable to resove host http://192.168.1.xxx": No address associated with hostname)
I’ve tried with and without setting the password. The box itself is connected to the network via a LAN cable.
I have no trouble connecting to the installation via the web interface, either via LAN or over WiFi.
Any help gratefully received!
You don't include 'http://' when connecting with Mpdroid (or any other mpd client)
Thanks. I also discovered that MPDroid had two sets of network settings—I had corrected the wrong one. Everything works now.
I see the same issue.
Host set to 192.168.1.100, all other options left as default.

Does the webclient work for you? Can you telnet to 192.168.1.100:6600?
