Volumio Version: 2.907
Today, I wanted to use my audio setup to play back music from my Mac using AirPlay. It worked great for a while, but then just stopped after some time (about an hour or so). It restarts just fine, but then again stops by itself after a while… I debugged Wifi issues, but this even happens when the RPi and the Mac both have their Wifi turned off and are connected into the same Ethernet switch.
It turns out that Airplay stops because shairport-sync gets restarted: typing
sudo journalctl -n200 | grep shairport I see an entry like
Sep 12 13:48:13 volumio sudo: volumio : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/ ; USER=root ; COMMAND=/bin/systemctl restart shairport-sync
(Actually when this appears, the same entry always shows up twice in a row with the same timestamp.) Any idea what causes this and what I can do on my end to avoid having shairport-sync being restarted every now and then?
Edit: See below for more details of what’s happening.
