Quick question folks. I have just migrated from vortexbox to daphil and am loving it.
One thing I would like to do and I can't remember if it was possible on vortexbox or not.
Can I stop LMS from rescanning every time I move, change anything in my library?
I'm experimenting with various places to keep my library at the moment and want to get everything set up then manually initiate a rescan.
Can't see it anywhere. Is it possible?

Thanks. I am a bit surprised the USB device defines almost no controls. On the other hand it is a very simple interface.

Now let's try playing some track directly to your soundcard.

Please post output and result of command:

Code:
aplay -v -D plughw:1 some_48k_16bit_stereo.wav
It should play the track to your SPDIF output.

Yes, it's possible: try Advance Media Server Settings>Advance>Performance, set Automatically Detect Changes to Disabled Manually Scan, Apply, Close. Restart Daphile.

Just to clarify, I presume that a song file has to be loaded so I placed a test file in RAM initially. hen I ssh into Daphile with "aplay -v -D plughw:1 These_Eyes.flac"

Daphile came up as "aplay: main:786: audio open error: Device or resource busy"

Next, I initiated play in audio player with the same file from RAM. GUI shows it's playing, so I set the command again, "aplay -v -D plughw:1 These_Eyes.flac"

Same result came up.

The aplay command is a standalone playback utility - look up man aplay on google. Other playback processes must be inactive to release the sound device. The error explains it clear - the audio device is already busy, i.e. taken by a different process.

Just type path to any wav file within the filesystem.

Plus it must be wav format, not flac. Please use google to look up details of what the commands do.

Brilliant, I knew it was in there somewhere. Thanks SkipSpence.

I have been reading on other forums that moOde and Volumio sound better than Daphile. But I am at a loss as to why this would be so.

Anyone here agree with the above or have any reason why this would be so?

Why speculate about causes of a phenomenon which has not been properly confirmed to even exist? A blind listening test on one hardware (i.e. only daphile and x86 volumio, moode runs on RPi only) would be required to make such claim first. I have never heard of any.

Thanks, Phofman, I decided that I'm too much of an idiot to relearn command lines and just wanted to listen to music. I'm putting Daphile aside for now until more time is spent configuring and learning the CL.

On a whim, decided to try Volumio and no problems! After install to same low power atom 2800, it recognized Schiit Eitr and plays wonderfully!

So for now, Volumio for me until later on...
