Note the new setting on System config for CPU governor. Setting the governor to "Performance" runs the CPU at fixed max frequency. The default setting "On Demand" runs the CPU at varying frequency depending on load.

Hi,

Just a friendly bump :-)

Congratulations Tim !
Your continued development keeps us all on our toes...have to go and find out about this Squeezy thing now

Cheers, Bob
Hi Bob,

Here's a few screen shots showing LMS, LMS Web Remote, LMS info and Moode Squeezelite indicator.

LMS is running on my Mac Air.

Soooo, lets see if I have this right..... the LMedia server runs on another os on another (or several instances and other) hardware such as laptop, desktop,tablet, phone and sends audio files to MoOde for playback through the RPi and associated hardware.

This/these LMS' (you can have several devices serving files to MoOde ?) are controlled from the MoOde web client..

It's worth testing with 20MHz channels and then seeing if things still work when you up the bandwidth to 40Mhz.

Further...

40MHz can problematic in high-density urban areas for a number of reasons, in addition to being problematic with 802.11a/b/g devices. It forces you to use channel 1, which can be jammed in many areas, resulting in even worse performance than 20MHz.

In such situations, you are better off with 20MHz as it allows you to be more selective about which channels you use.

If you live in an apartment block, you can take the 'less is more' approach by reducing your routers power, it is less likely to 'bump' into competing networks and have to back off, resulting in better overall throughput.

I probably shouldn't have even raised the spectre of 40MHz on 2.4GHz - it's great to play with to see what maximum throughput you can achieve, but unless your network is comprised of all 802.11n, unless you are in a clutter-free area with little interference, unless your house is wifi-friendly, construction wise, you are likely to make things more problematic. Living in an area where mine is the only wifi signal I can see and in an 'open' wooden house, such as my one in NZ, gives me much more latitude, which may not be suitable in NA and Europe.

More transceivers, such as seen in 450, 600, 750, 900, 1200Mbps and up routers, is an affordable and easily-integrated way of solving wifi gremlins.

Hi Bob,

The Squeeze system is similar to UPnP A/V and Airplay but more powerful.

In it's simplest configuration:

- LMS is server and indexes the music collection
- Squeezelite is client and receives streams from LMS
- LMS Web Remote functions as the Player UI

LMS and Squeezelite can exist on the same host or different hosts.

There are other Remote Controllers for example iPeng for IOS and Orange Squeeze for Android.

Regards,
Tim

Moode acts as the renderer. You control it through the various Logitech apps.

In effect, pretending to be a squeezebox in the same way it pretends to be an airplay speaker

Nice simple explanation!

Having lms working on moode will be very interesting for me as I'm already running lms. Thank u for this Tim

Thanks Tim and Zootalaws...
Yes that makes sense... I've used Daphile on laptops so presumably that's an instance of "LMS and Squeezelite can exist on the same host"

From the screenshots earlier it seems that squeezelite is selected in the MoOde web UI and then another web UI (LMS Remote or others ?) becomes the controller.

Looking forward to trying this out especially if it can play files from multiple devices to MoOde.

@Zootalaws....

Hi guys!

Comparing a LMS- squeezelite- system- regardless in which combination (both on one device or separated), it sounded significantly inferior to a pure MPD- based player.
LMS is really nice to look at and has Incredible features implemented, but to me- Sound Quality is the knock out factor.

Greetingz, Robert
