since I updateted to the last volumio version 2.185 I got several problems in having a stable airplay streaming.
While playing audio with my mac connected to volumio via airplay the connection breaks and afterwords the volumio airplay disappear from the network. The only way to connect it again with airplay is to reboot volumio.
This happens mostly when I manually change songs in iTunes or I change the streaming source of on my mac (itunes, web video, vlc, ecc…) .
I am using volumio with a raspberry pi 3 on a wireless network.
yes, I was using the previous version of volumio and I added pulseaudio and bluetooth, but the problem started occurring after the upgrade.
Before even when volumio got disconnected it was possible to reconnect to it. Now the only way is rebooting volumio.
Probably the Airplay server (or whatever enable airplay on volumio) crashed.
I doubt this could be a conflict with bluetooth and pulseaudio, but if you think so, I can try to make a fresh installation.
I don’t understand what you mean by “seek trough the UI”, could you explain better?
After the "crash"I can access the UI via web normally and play whatever is on the harddrive. Just volumio doesn’t appear anymore as airplay device.
Now I see, I struggled quite a lot to add the bluetooth functionalities, so I would like to have a backup first
What I can tell you by now is that what’s going on is that “shairport-sync” crashes and I have to restart it.
So, if I restart it from the command line I don’t have to reboot the volumio and everything works again.
Was the shairport version changed in the last volumio release?
Same issue is still evident in 2.201. As a workaround, if you want to restart Airplay without using an SSH command, going into Settings>Network and then clicking on a ‘Save’ button without changing any settings seems to work. It reports that wireless has been restarted and, soon after that, Airplay comes back up again (but it will go down again after a while if not in use).
