Hi everyone, I’m pretty new to this sort of thing and I am hoping someone can help me work out what I am doing wrong.
My question is: where do I look on MusicBox for logs or other things which might help me work out why airplay keeps failing?
The reason I’m asking for help is that I also have 4 other rPi devices running Kodi. And they all work perfectly with AirPlay. But on the MusicBox Pi it seems to be very intermittent. Sometimes I can see the MusicBox device in the AirPlay list. Sometimes I can’t. Sometimes a reboot fixes it, sometimes it doesn’t.
I’ve read other posts about how AirPlay multicast can struggle with certain routers and hopping between 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi bands so I get that there may not be a solution to that. But the fact that the othe Pi’s don’t have this issue suggests it’s not that.
The problematic device is a raspberry pi ZeroW with MusicBox running on it. I am using a JustBoom zero DAC to connect to an old iPhone speaker dock (via a 30pin adapter cable with usb for power and 3.5mm audio to the DAC).
