It’s a 3TB drive with about 3,600 albums of all types.

Any idea as to what the issue might be?

Thanks in advance.

Please check Daphile's todo list:

At the moment, Daphile does not support drives larger than 2TB.

Anyway, you can always setup another LMS server on your favorite OS and point Daphile as client only.

Thanks a lot for the information, Stereolab.

To completely confess my ignorance, how would I do what you suggest?

Daphile is fully compatible with the Logitech Squeezebox ecosystem. Daphile emulates the renderer and the server. The server in this case is a customized version of the Logitech Media Server. You can download LMS 7.3.3 (from mysqueezebox site) and install it on another PC or NAS.

Next step is configure Daphile to forget about their internal media server and inform the IPaddress of hour new LMS server (now loaded with files from your large HD).

Default Shut down problem

Hi Kipeta,
Thank you for bringing us Daphile, definitely one of a very exciting Linux system for audiophile in years. I have installed Daphile in 2 PC, both working great:

1. IBM PC with 800Mhz Intel 386 and 512k ram, system install on internal HDD with RME 96/8 pad soundcard, sounds a lot better compare with using consummer DVD as player, response is acceptable.

2. IBM Thnkcentre M55 Intel Duecore 3Ghz with 2G ram, installed on 16G class 10 SD with 2 ext4 partitions, and boot from USB with M2Tech Hiface Evo as interface, the latest version working great except on system shutdown, instead of poweroff it just reboot.

Keep up the good work, thanks

Afic

Default New version available!

CHANGES on March 26th 2014:
  • Faster kexec reboot disabled by default. It does not fully initialize the hardware and this is known to cause some very strange problems.
  • Drive partition table erase tool in initial settings at console (USB-boot)
  • Configurable sample rate change and DoP-PCM mode switch delay parameters for Squeezelite player
  • Credits at Info tab to show license information of included packages
  • Some new configurable options for CD ripping
  • Bug fixes and other minor changes
Update via your Daphile web UI or download from www.daphile.com.

Any feedback is warmly welcomed!

Well, after my IT guy looked at the server, he reset the bios which got the hard drive recognized and it also recognized the JCAT card on Daphile.
That’s the good news.
The not yet good news is that while my DAC (DCS Debussy) is now showing up in Daphile, it won’t lock on the signal from the server.
The “lock” light is flashing and the sample and bit rate are stuck on 24-192.
I’ve rebooted (hard and soft) multiple times and have moved the flash drive I’m booting from to a number of different USB port locations.
Still no success.
So close yet I can’t quite get this working.
Thanks for the help anyone can offer.
Joel

You should define the "Identification" field. It may be almost anything you want, eg. MyMusicLib.

I currently have Squeezebox server and SB touch connected to a diy dac. I recently picked up the Schiit Audio Loki and using another computer with JRiver, I was able to play dsd over pcm to the Loki. To listen to my diy dac I hit the bypass button on Loki so I can juggle between pcm (diy dac) and dsd over pcm (Loki).

I would like to do dsd over pcm to Loki but controlling it with my android Squeezebox app setup with Daphile. is this possible?
This would allow me to combine the 2 computers into one and have this Daphile control my SB Touch to diy dac and Daphile control Loki.

Thx
Neville

It should work as long as your DAC is Linux compatible.
