Hi Hilversum,

I am by no means an expert, but

Did you disable the built-in iTunes server?

Have you checked for any errormessages? – Try to list the end of the messages file:

tail -100 /var/log/messages | more

Press enter several times to view all 100 last lines of the log file. output from Firefly is tagged by ‘mt-daapd[pid]:’ where pid is the process id.

On my DS107e the last entry is (preceeded by several ‘Updating playlists’ entries):

Nov 18 19:51:22 mt-daapd[721]: Scanned 22856 songs (was 22856) in 259 seconds

Also you could check that mt-daapd is running by typing

ps -ax | grep mt-daapd

Here you should see several lines referring to the version you have installed in /opt. This is what I have:

720 guest 76 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf
721 guest 3928 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf
848 guest 3928 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf
849 guest 3928 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf
932 guest 3928 S /opt/sbin/mt-daapd -c /opt/etc/mt-daapd/mt-daapd.conf
