The ones I have come across look like standard USB mass storage devices, but you never know...

That means "Pressing the On button" on the NUC will execute a shutdown in Daphile? Is this what I find in the Daphile Settings-Menu for Power: "Power-Button: Shutdown"?

Is this one of the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) functions I found in the NUC Technical Product Specifications?

The DAP acts like a standard USB drive in other systems on which I have tried it. When trying this drive on Daphile beta 19.01, booted from SSD, it will not even appear in a lsblk listing so manual mounting didn't work. The really odd thing is during first Daphile installation, if the drive is present it's available and under complete control. It shows up in the "Storage" panel of "Settings" correctly, and it will allow setting to rw. As soon as the system is rebooted off the SSD all that disappears.

That device has no partition table/partitions, perhaps that is the reason?

Default Some explanation, DAP (VFAT)

Now I understand a little better what's mountable and in what manner. This DAP has a micro-SD card. The host computer for Daphile is a Shuttle XS35 that has an integral SD card reader, so I tried mounting the SD card and voilá:

Code:
Daphile-RT ~ # mount
none on /sys type sysfs (rw,relatime)
/dev/sda1 on /boot type ext4 (ro,noatime)
/dev/sda2 on /mnt/hdd type ext4 (rw,noatime)
/boot/fw1902281823/rootfs on /mnt/root-ro type squashfs (ro,noatime)
overlay on / type overlay (rw,relatime,lowerdir=/mnt/root-ro,upperdir=/mnt/hdd/
…
/dev/mmcblk0p1 on /media/music/MMC Drives/1EE1-3B51 type vfat (rw,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,fmask=0133,dmask=0022,codepage=437,iocharset=iso8859-1,shortname=mixed,utf8,time_offset=-240,errors=remount-ro)
The first time I tried mounting the card rw, the switch on the SD card adapter was set to "read only" so it failed, which is good: the equipment respects that switch. The second time I had to check the "RW" box in Settings -> Storage and reboot, but the card mounted rw as shown above. I wrote a file to the card and then verified the DAP - a *very* fussy device - could read it.

So with this bit of a work-around I can now feed my DAP music directly from the Daphile host computer.

Thanks, all.

Squeezer (Android free app) definitely works for me on port 9090 of the host.

One thing I just noticed is the headphone jack is on:

numid=42,iface=CARD,name='Headphone Jack'
  ; type=BOOLEAN,access=r-------,values=1
  : values=on
Since the optical out is shared with the headphone jack would this possibly be overridng the digital out? How would I turn it off - just to check (I'm pretty sure the headphone was off in alsamixer - actually everything but master and the spdifs should be off IIRC)

Thanks for your help.
Playing around today with a USB install of Mint just to see what's going on in the Linux realm…
When I plug in the optical cable, the OS (Mint in this case) does see the connection as headphones. After some Googling, I found somebody mentioning Alsa-tools as a way to "re-map" the output jacks. Installed it and while it seemed to do what was advertised - basically I remapped the headphone jack as an optical, I just couldn't get the darn thing to light up (literally, under Win 7 the jack does glow red when active).

Basically, I'm out of my league now. Does anybody have any final suggestions I could try or should I just give up on optical altogether and maybe just return the DAC (I know the issue is with the laptop, but really the biggest motivation for buying the DAC in the first place was being able to use optical instead of USB)

The Material Skin is a LMS plugin, nothing to do with piCorePlayer. So any LMS installation should be able to use the Material Skin.

Well. I can install it in LMS but cannot be used as LMS server settings page is also heavily modified so I cannot select the material skin.
