Question about Logitech Squeezebox Duet

Remote doesn't recognize squeezebox duet

We just got the duet last week and had no problem setting it up and enjoy using it. However, it seems that when we go to use the squeezebox duet the remote doesn't see it under the list of controllers and we have to unplug the squeezebox, replug it in and then the remote will recognize it. I'm thinking this must have to do with how it is turned off or we have to do something to the duet (other than unplug) to get it to relink to the remote. The instructions don't say anything about turning the unit on or off so I have no way to know if we are doing anything wrong. Help!

    Duet worked fine for a couple of weeks either through Squeeze Network or Squeezebox Centre. Then I began having trouble connecting. Unplugging and replugging Squeezebox worked once as did selecting "Pick Player" on the Home menu. Now, the home menu does not have a choice of "Pick Player" or "Turn On Squeezebox". My computer works fine with the Linksys router.

    I also noticed that when I had "Turn Off Squeezebox" on my menu it would turn Squeezebox off momentarily and then the box would turn on again showing a blue light which would occasionally go bright white all on its own while the controller was off. However no music played.

I have experienced the same connectivity issues with the Duet system. My first system was sent back for a replacement within the 30 day return policy. The second unit worked considerably better but the remote controller would still sometimes completely lose the link with the Squeezebox receiver after being left in the charger for an hour or two (or just set aside a while). Firmware upgrades seemed to slightly improve the situation, but I eventually sent the controller back for a replacement. The tech rep said they've had issues with the controllers. When I asked if I needed to return the receiver as well, he said "It's the controller, we've seen the problem quite a bit."

So, it seems the wifi function on the hardware can sometimes be defective. Update the firmware on everything, and if you've still got problems, insist on a replacement unit (it will likely be a refurb).

Good luck.

Hi !

You will have to change the wireless encryption key in order to solve this issue, if you are using WEP swap fpr WPA2 and vice versa, and no ASCII , HEX is way preferable for Squeezebox.

Thanks and have a nice day !

Logitech Squeezebox Duet Remote Control not working corectly

I suggest you read the instructions to ensure you haven't missed some small detail.

If you are confident you have done everything right it is safe to assume the unit is faulty and should be returned to the retailer for replacement or refund and you should contact the retailer as soon as possible.

When a person buys something they actually are making a contract that in return for some hard-earned cash the retailer will provide an item of merchantable quality. If the item doesn't work as promised it is not of merchantable quality and the retailer has breached the contract.
