Raspbmc iPlayer – Stream Already Playing Error

February 12, 2014 Leave a comment

While using my Raspberry Pi with the Raspbmc OS the iPlayer add-on crashed and the only way to resolve the issue was a reboot of the Raspberry Pi.

However when I tried to run the iPlayer software again I kept on getting the error message

“Stream Already Playing, unable to open stream, to continue, stop all other streams (try pressing X)”

To correct this problem you need to click the “force release resume lock

The “force release resume lock” option is located by doing the following

From the main Raspbmc screen do the following

System Tab



Enabled Add-On’s

Video Add-On’s




Click force release resume lock

After a while you should receive a message that the release has been succesful and iPlayer should start working correctly again.

Nope. Nothing like that at all.

Instead, I’m going to expound upon the greatness of Galaga in a few paragraphs. Please bear with me as I gush.

Raspberry Pi Lego Rack Designs

July 11, 2013 Leave a comment


A few people requested that we describe the design of our racks.

The truth is, each rack is slightly different and the final build is not the one we’d planned. A couple of reasons for this: we didn’t quite receive the Lego pieces we were expecting, and we had to tweak the designs to make things fit better. So this is a somewhat retrospective design document…

We have four racks containing 14 Raspberry Pi’s each, actually composed of two adjacent towers. In between the towers are two USB hubs. The design is such that the front provides access to the SD card slot and micro-USB power supply, so we can easily change SD cards and reset the Pi’s. We can also slide the Pi’s out, which is incredibly useful as we tend to be cannibalising Pi’s quite often, or else swapping them around for testing. The back of the racks…
