Not getting any closer, but, when i did >sudo mt-daapd -f I got:
Starting rendezvous daemon

This makes no sense to ne, I thought I was using just Avahi, not HOWL? Am I just completely daft or have I installed HOWL in my sleep? Suggest I wanted mt-daapd to stop using HOWL and just use Avahi, how would I go about?
p.s. Installed mt-daapd via apt-get install mt-daapd
Avahi has a howl compatibility mode. That’s what this is using. Its still using avahi, but mt-daapd thinks its using howl. Sometime after 1376 native avahi bindings were added.
So this is normal, and nothing to worry about.
