Do I have a ghost??

Do I have a ghost??
Morning...
At three o'clock this morning my wife woke me to say there was some loud church organ music coming from downstairs.
It was quite scary in a gothic sort of way as I became conscious. I then remembered that I had been playing some Buxtehude - so I could account for the church organ.

But what caused my DS/3 to come on? A jolt from a mains outage would have deleted the playlist, I would have thought.

Our house is 200 years old and a ghost has been seen here. Normally causes no problems. Anyone got any better ideas?

Perplexed of York....

RE: Do I have a ghost??
So you have Autoplay on and startup source set to playlist.
All it wold take is a wayward IR signal getting in from somewhere. The Power code is the same as my marantz, so it could have been anyone/anything if they were close enough.

So, timster, if not a ghost it could have been a UFO!

Do you have auto-play switched on though? Otherwise you'd have to have startup source set as playlist and the ds received a Play command via IR.
Do you have a cat or dog that might've sat on the remote, or given it a good old gnaw? Smile

Other than that maybe your wifi or network has been compromised - but if it were that I'd expect the intruder to do something more impressive than just set the current playlist playing?!

Finally have you got Davaar 63 - there are all sorts of things you can schedule the Ds to do with Linn Labs and ifttt. You need to be signed up, logged in and your Ds connected to the cloud for any of it to do anything, but who knows what little foibles might be present in the initial release???

I had this once, when I had an IP address conflict on the network. I keep hearing short bursts of music after going to bed, thinking it was the noisy neighbours. Then I realised it was the DS playing short bursts of "Gay Bar" by Electric 6!

Hi Phino,
Yes, I do have auto play on.
I do have a cat. The remote was on the coffee table face up.
No signs of anything else amiss in the network.
I am not connected to cloud.
I have 4.63.223
I still prefer the ghost theory....

My friend... York is very ghostly you know! This has happened to me at least twice now. I wondered if the little fat kid next door was messing around and playing his Spotify on my ds. I'm not sure. However about half two one morning we were woken by some random bar piano music being played downstairs. Jane actually knew who it was, I'd never heard of it but neither of us had been playing it and it wasn't on any playlist.
Very weird. I'll try and get the name of the artist.

That's hilarious. I love electric six. Can't beat a bit of Dick.

Don, it was Mrs Mills, or Russ Conway, maybe sidesaddle.

Not sure a ghost could even work a ds!
