    Known Limitations / Issues

    • Ethernet interface must be kept in DHCP mode to allow Wireless LAN operation
    • WLAN interface is not identified by Discovery Tool
    • Local Web UI is currently accessible only with HTTP protocol (no HTTPs support)
    • When playing an RTP stream with unsupported audio format the player doesn't behave as expected, it doesn't change to another working channel anymore with the risk of being silent if failover tracks are not uploaded
    • Update of the Firmware cannot be done using WiFi only connection, wired connection must be used
    • The player opens multiple HTTP connections when connecting with an http stream, this causes waste of network resources and might result in the RetailPlayer device being banned from some strict streaming service providers
