Hi, I've used VB for a while now but never needed the Vortexbox player. Now I do and I could do with some advice.
I have upgraded to 1.5
In the GUI system config it says Vortexbox player stopped. I click start but nothing happens.
I went into the dos thingy, and typed setup-vb-player and it did some stuff and then there were a few lines one of which said 'nothing to do',; then some PHP warnings about not being able to open streams in fopen(etc/vortexbox-playe/mac-list.conf) in line 20 and 24 and there being no such file as /opt/vortexbox.mp-conf - I'm abbreviating. Then some more lines about fwrite and fclose, and them not valid stream resources in lines 49,50,56 and 57; and finally some PHP notice lines about undefined indexes: mac and name in line 70.
Bottom line, I go into Squeezebox and there's no vortexbox player.
Now, you may be able to tell I have no idea what all this means, and I should say that as yet I have no DAC or anything plugged into my player - I just wanted to see that it works in software before I commit to buying dac, amp and speakers.
What am I doing wrong and will it all come to life when I plug a DAC into the USB?
Please help. I love my vortexbox but I have no clue what's really going on under the bonnet and it's not what you'd call easy to follow.
