We have a few issues with our squeezebox but the most frustrating at this point is that it will turn itself off randomly.
We'll be listening contentedly to a radio station and suddenly it will just stop and the unit will display the clock/power off screen. We'll power it back up and go through the same sequence events again. Sometimes it stays on without a problem though. Anyone else having this problem or know of a fix?

I have 3 Squeezebox Radios and they do exactly what you describe all the time. They have become unusable.
My other Internet radios, listening to the same streams, do not have this issue. My Squeezeboxes worked fine until the latest software / firmware rev. They are now entirely FUBAR.

What version of SqueezeBox Server are you using? 7.5 has a lot of fixes for the Radio. You may also want to try the new 7.5.1 BETA. It has many fixes for the Radio as well.

Hi, I'm having the same issue here.
If I turn on the box by pressing the Play-button, it mostly takes about 10-15 seconds before the device is turned off without pressing any other button. After pressing Play again, the box stays on.
Same thing with turning off: Pressing the Power-Button makes the box turn off for 10-15 seconds and then it turns on again the display without playing any music.
That's completely unwanted behavior.
Logitech - please fix this. Turning on and off the device should work as expected.
Thanks a lot,

Thanks for all your responses. I am running 7.5. I'll try 7.5.1beta and let you know if it helps. How do I update to the beta version?

I updated to 7.5.1. and my 3 radios are finally working correctly again. The update released on April 6th, version 7.5.0. had totally screwed up my radios, but now they are back to the way they were before the 7.5.0. update.
No idea why Logitech did not put the 7.5.1. update as a "pushed" update so that we would know about it and install it.
I had to spend 2 months searching websites, and finally somebody here explained that by installing the Windows Squeezebox server software of the proper version from another web site that I could then force a firmware update to 7.5.1. This finally has solved my problems and presumably will solve yours as well.

The other web site hosting loads of versions of the server software etc etc is the (remains of the) Slimdevices web site, the original developers of the Squeezebox system. Still in existence are very active and usable forums full of knowledgeable long-term users of the devices. There is a sticky at the top of this forum linking to that site. A casual Google search should have thrown it up too. The address is http://forums.slimdevices.com
You have just installed beta software, which is why Logitech do not advertise it to casual users. When they see fit to promote the beta to a full release they will no-doubt link it from their download page. No-one has any idea when they will do this as they don't really talk to anyone about their plans... or anything much at all really.

The 7.6.0 version is identified as "Beta" and has cautionary warnings about installing it, whereas the 7.5.1. does not say "Beta", but perhaps is actually a pre-release version.
Thankfully 7.5.1. seems very stable and fixes the several issues I reported, and I am once again a happy camper after 2 months of down time.
