Raspi Air Player hangs

#1 Post by termigrator » Wed Mar 10, 2021 5:27 pm

Hello,

a few days ago I downloaded the Air-player image for the Rasperry Pi. However, I have problems with the installation: The installation always hangs at the same place: I see the splash-screen and it doesn't go any further. If I then press a key, I see that the boot script hangs. I am attaching a photo of the situation.

I have already tried the following:
- Installation on a Raspi 2 Model B 1.1
- Installation on a Raspi 3 Model B+
- Installation on brand new memory cards
- Burning the memory card with various etchers
- Boot with and without network connection
- Boot with and without keyboard / mouse

Now I am at the end of my knowledge. I suspect that the image currently available for download is defective.

Who can help me?

The image has been online and the exact same for many months, and is used by many people, so the image on the server is fine. Did you try downloading and flashing on a different PC?

Hi,


The error is weird, but note that the Air Player image doesn't do much until you configure it with Air Manager.

Within Air Manager, can you detect your Raspberry?

Hi corian,

thanks, you are right. OMG, I thougt, I will see a gui on the raspberry. But there is no GUI. The raspi is waiting to be configured by the PC-based Air-Manager. Will try it tomorrow.

You should indeed see the Sim Innovations logo, so still a bit strange.

It did, but you can close the splash screen by pressing a key.

Ah you're right, I should start to read more careful.
