    There have been quite a few posts from long-term mojo owners, stating that using poly to play tracks from the sd card, is the best music reproduction that they have ever heard from the mojo.

    Since the firmware update to Poly 2.0, I am thinking that the posts are a bit more positive. Am I right or mistaken, please anyone? Is the Poly running generally better or a lot better, or no better please?

    I would still only use a Poly as an SD-card transport. I have wifi off in my home and only use cabled internet. A Poly would really only be a DAP to me, so is it more functional as that now?

    Since the 2.0 update Poly is more functional in every way. Poly seems to boot up faster, GoFigure connects faster, SD Playlists load up faster, Most previous bugs have been fixed, even Slightly Improved Sound Signature vs older FW.
    I also agree with others that Poly brings out the very best of Mojo in terms of SQ.
    Mojo-Poly combo has been my daily grind critical audio listening device for about a year now.

    Exactly what I want to hear with my Poly arriving today :). However, maybe I should've waited post Chord announcement at Munich High End in a few days. Who knows what will happen (well, Chord knows...)

    Don't worry, you will know in a few days. Enjoy your Poly in the meantime.

    Interesting, thank you. I have been reading posts recently and looking posts about software that operates the SD-card player, also. I would be using Android if I did, and I was not sure GoFigure was up to date for Android. (I would never buy an iPhone, so that's why. Neither do I have a smartphone yet.) However I thought I saw some folk struggling a bit with Android apps. Will have to go back over the last few pages.

    I think you are a bit ambitious if you don't even have a smartphone.
    Do you have a tablet that you could use instead?

    Be aware that even at this stage in Poly's development it's not a mainstream super user friendly consumer electronics item and won't hold your hand getting it working. It can be frustrating and inscrutable to newcomers. I'd guess doubly so if you don't already have a smartphone. We can help you out here but it's something to bear in mind!

    Hi All

    On the old firmware I had no issues, everything just worked for me. But I think I might have stumbled on a bug in v2.0. Has anyone else seem this ?

    Start from everything working fine.
    Power down remove SD (400Gb) put in my PC and update music folder from my master to SD using robocopy. All Music is in a subfolder called Music.
    Insert SD enter GoFigure and update database.
    Then I can't connect to the poly over wifi with any app.
    This persists through reboots re-indexes.

    If I pop the SD and manually delete the DB index files and re-index it all starts working again.

    Is this the server crashing issue I keep reading snippets about ?

    Not sure if this is the same. I reported this to Chord -

    My fault with MPD is simpler than this. Switching on Poly often results in MPD apps being unable to connect, nor Poly to be used as renderer on dlna apps. This can happen several times a day (never happened on previous firmware).

    I have no need to delete (nor the opportunity to delete if I am mobile) index files. Solution - Eject SD card, power down, power up, reinsert card and connection is restablished. This is a pain which I hope is being looked at.

    I did try deleting index files but it seems to make no difference to simply ejecting SD card and reinserting on power up.

    I experience this on Android 9.0 (Samsung Note 9) using MALP and MAFA clients , and BubbleUPnP (android) and MusicBee (p.c.) for the rendering issue.

    Otherwise, once the connection is established the thing is solid.

    Hi @MaxD
    When you insert the SD card back into Poly after a few seconds you should see the P status start to flash as Poly automatically re-indexes the database.
    Can you let me know if that is happening and whether once finished you can see Poly as a server again on your apps.

    Wow thanks for the quick response people :). I just went through the same process but without Manually deleting the Database. That worked too. So it looks like the same issue.
    @Matt, Yes that worked. As long as it keeps me listening I'm OK. If you need anyone to test your fix :) don't hesitate to ask....

    No tablet. I have thought about buying a tablet as a file source for Hugo 2, around home. Would want a phone though for out of home. Two reasons why I don't have a smartphone are, I put it off buying one. Secondly my list of requirements is too hard to find. I want one with a replaceable battery, and that has excellent battery life. Also one that has good sound for playing music, just in case. A good camera is on my list too. However most importantly one that is rugged, and waterproof. I was looking at rugged Blackview phones and other makes for durability, but never found the one I wanted. (Blackview website flashes up on Norton IS as having multiple risks on it, too.)

    I certainly don't want a flashy phone, because I hate them.

    I get that Poly could be hard work. However I have two outlooks on it. Firstly that I am not sure that I have the patience to sort out Poly. However I asked in a few posts back, and the outlook was said to be better. Secondly I build my own PCs so I really don't feel outfaced by Poly. Not going to give my background on Head-Fi though.

    I wouldn't be technically outsmarted by Poly, but there's a chance I might give up. Just because I don't have a smartphone, doesn't imply anything other than I never found one I wanted. I do want one, because my old phone only does about one hour talk time, if that.
