That one had me stumped, I’d tried to reinstall a few times before and ipkg had refused to do it. The key, which surprisingly I’d not seen refered to elsewhere, is to type
ipkg install -force-reinstall mt-daapd
Rather than ‘-force-overwrite’ which is what I’d seen before.
So in conclusion it all appears to work beautifully. Thanks very much indeed. I’m sure I’ll be in touch if any other problems crop up.
Oh one last question; do you know if mt-daapd svn-1489 will work with the Pinnacle M1000, apparently it has daap disabled unlike the Roku M1000?
