If there's a Raspbian driver for it, sure.

Are you anticipating shifting a huge amount of data? Because that's the only reason I can see for using something other than the inbuilt Ethernet NIC - unless you're using a Zero, in which case 100BT is probably all the poor little bugger can handle.

And, every time you reimage a system, you will have to ensure the driver is loaded, if t isn't available in the kernel.

This may not be the correct place for this, but I'll ask anyway... I'm using an RPi 3B, powered with an RPi wall-wart PSU and Allo Kali powered by Ifi iPower and Piano 2.1 DAC. I'm wondering if a linear PSU for the Kali/DAC will provide any noticable improvement in SQ and if so, what should I go for (given that my DIY skills are OK up to point of plugging boards together/getting software running and not soldering? What are you guys using?

Hi All!

Just wanted to add a line in /boot/config.txt in order to disable Pi3's Bluetooth part of the WIFI/BT implementation. I entered the distro via putty-ssh. When I tried storing the change I unfortunately got a 'permission denied'- message. So I assume, that the 'pi' login instead of 'root' is responsible for that fact. Is there a simple way to succeed in this case?

Thanx, Robert

It's all I can do to keep from chiming in on the networking discussion to show I have some considerable networking chops of my own at every level in the stack from bare wire/radio to API and have configured and run every networking service at one time or another.

But really, guys, this isn't the point. I'm trying to test moOde 4.0b1 "as if" I know sod all about the technology. A newbie expects to plug it in and listen to the music. If there's a feature offered in the configuration panels, I'm going to punch it to see what happens. I'll grant the need on the part of the user for some basic computer literacy and the ability to find and read "how to's" on the Internet (not to mention Tim's Setup Guide!).

But I do love the tech-head discussion

Regards,
Kent

Hi, Robert.

Yes, if you're logged into moodeOS, you'll need to modify files in /boot as superuser (aka root).

e.g.,

Code:
:~ $ sudo nano /boot/config.txt

It seems that mDNS is supported in the various flavours of Android OS, but they have hard-coded 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (google's DNS servers) and ignore any local DNS your router supplies with the DHCP lease.

So, your device is capable of resolving mDNS addresses (.local, .station, etc) if the query actually got to your local DNS server.

You could manually enter your local DNS address on your phone, but that is both a short-term fix and causes problems when you leave your local wifi. A better solution is to redirect requests to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 to your local DNS.

If you're willing to try, let me know what make and model of router and I will tell you how to accomplish the hack.
@Zootalaws

The DNS service on my SO's router (from her ISP, Verizon) maps unqualified hostnames into its own domain .fios-router.home so with a few extra finger presses Android is happy. Not as clean as your hack but less likely to frighten the horses.

Kent

The last time I looked if the artist/Title was blank in the MPD current track status then the playback panel classed it as a Radio stream and did not call upexplorer.
Interesting observation but moOde is displaying artist/Title while playing Tidal streams proxied by BubbleUPnP. If currentsong.txt is enabled, I see the same phenomenon I reported for upexplorer, namely with moOde 3.8.4, the coverurl line contains a single URL entry, with moOde 4.0b1, the coverurl line contains a list of two (identical) URLs.

If lists are legit, then an easy fix is to take the first item and ignore the rest.

Checking proxying through Bubble of my Qobuz subscription and two artwork urls are returned because it looks like Bubble publishes two different artwork size options (for Qobuz at least). I wonder if the earlier version only got the first. I will email the upmpdcli developer and ask.
That agrees with my mental conjecture about a UPnP media server possibly returning a collection (list) of artwork URLs.

However I take your point about significant others, my wife refuses to acknowledge any interface, web or otherwise if its not the Sonos client and has demanded a STOP button, a Radio Paradise button and a nice nicer box.
As if this were our only bone of contention

Some people think the iFi is at least as good as a linear supply there, so you might do better to spend your money on an isolator.
The sound does improve if you supply the DAC and Kali separately, though this entails a mod - described by Greg Stewart in the 'New Dac for RPi' thread. Soldering required though!

I would suggest you try powering the RPi3 with the iFi power supply and the Kali and Piano DAC with the RPi wall-wart and listen for a change in the sound...

Will be able to advise from there.
