Crestron Driver FAQ's

This uses the Kazoo Server with API Gateway enabled.


When I select Music in Kazoo it does not play and there is no coverart shown. Also Control/Creston has no control

Go into Kazoo Server settings and check the Network settings.
If Kazoo Server is setup for a different network then the Music and coverart link are for this different network. Double check that Kazoo Server network settings are same the Linn DS/DSM network

The Gateway API will also be trying to communicate with the wrong network addresses.
