Hi Ulf,

I changed one of my systems to W8. I use a touchpad from Logitech. It is not very cheap, but after using it some days, I like the handling.

Hi folks.

Networking exercise!

For those of you, who are kind of bored in the holiday season.

Could you try following.

1. Connect your LMS server! via WLAN to the router. You might disable
the LAN adapter in the BIOS.
2. The Touch you connect via cable to the router.

That'll be it.


Let me (us) know if anything happened.

Enjoy.

Guys, pls advice on what brand and model of router to get.

Im frustrated with my router. I have to unplug and restart the router at least every 4 days then would have to reconfigure the touch with the 3.0 mods again. i have even reserved the ip address of the touch to the router. after router has been restarted, the touch could not connect to the server anymore. Even winscp could not communicate with touch. I connect the touch to the router with ethernet cable.

Pls recommend a replacement router.

Thanks guys

I haven't got a touch myself but I'll play

My guess is that the touch wouldn't see the LMS server so it wouldn't work. Unless I bridge the wired and wireless VLANs in the router in which case I would expect it to work as normal.

with my fritz!box it would work because wlan and lan are in the same network. only thing I could think of at the moment would be a "groumd lift" between LMS hardware and touch...

What do you think should happen, if I suggest anything over here?

Actually that setup had been suggested to me by a friend of mine.



I'm also using a Fritzbox (supplied by the cable company) btw. But I think any router should do.
Perhaps not any server comes with WLAN though. I'm using a USB stick by myself.

hmmm, I would try it but as I said I have LMS running on a NAS so no wlan... but I must say that the touch withh TT3 running via toslink to ddx320 with Cube F155 fullrange tqwt + tapped horn <60hz already sounds quite impressive

Looks our setups are getting more and more similar.

You could try to temporarily install LMS on e.g. a notebook. It wouldn't be more then a 30 minutes exercise.

Default Buffe size

Hi I've just installed your mod on my touch, and cant seem to get the buffer size to be anything but 100000us even if I tt -b (any numeric value). Anyone face this problem? Solutions?
I'm using the touch with an emotive dac, carver pre, Quad II tube mono blocks and dali's. So far the sound is not as good as a pc with j.river though usb limited to 44.1. I'm hoping these mods will come close to the pc sound cause I'd much rather use the touch/ipad to play music.
Thanks to all those who reply i advance
