Now, is there some way to add these stations to MoOde?
Yes, go to the radio browse screen and 'add'.

Yes, go to the radio browse screen and 'add'.
I suspect a little more detail is needed here.
1. from the Browse panel, choose RADIO to get to the radio browse screen.
2. click the "hamburger" icon (the box with three horizontal lines stacked in it) to the right of any of the existing stations.
3. choose "Create new station".
4. add the station name and the streaming-url of the station in the popup pane and click "add station".
Voila, MoOde sorts the new station into its list.

@vakharia
Note that this does not add a station icon to be displayed in the Playback panel. That's a harder task.

@everybody else
FYI - these are three Hindi Bollywood stations. The first is the typical 128kbps, the second 320kbps (!), and the third a measly 32kbps.

Regards,
Kent

I played with MSD (Mass Storage Device) booting for a while last night.

I was getting inconsistent results trying to boot moode-sdimg-r36 directly from either a USB thumb drive or an SSD drive on my RPi3B. It didn't work either to add to the mix a uSD card containing only bootcode.bin. I didn't have time to compare with straight Raspbian to check if issues like an uncooperative thumb drive (see the discussion about MSD booting on the RPi site), timing, or drooping 5-volt power were getting in my way (I wasn't feeding the SSD through a powered USB hub). I was getting different flashing-led sequences reflecting failure at different stages in the booting process which depended in some vague way on the different hardware configurations. In none of the scenarios did updating bootcode.bin have an effect.

I expect my problems can be sorted with sunshine and adequate caffeine intake. The beers I had at dinner last night were probably counterproductive

However, with the boot file system on a small-capacity uSD card and the root file system on either a randomly chosen USB thumb drive or on my USB-connected SSD, MoOde Player came up fresh as paint.

Basically, I dd'ed moode-sdimg-r36.img to the chosen MSD, then copied the boot partition to the uSD card.

Necessary changes before booting were
1) in the boot file system on the uSD card, modify cmdline.txt to read "root=/dev/sda2"
2) in the root file system on the MSD, modify /etc/fstab, replacing /dev/mmcblk0p2 by /dev/sda2 as the partition to mount to /
Note that some changes made to MoodeOS via the Configuration menu will modify the boot file system so we have to keep /dev/mmcblk0p1 mounted to /boot.

I didn't need to update bootcode.bin for this to work.

This is an old scheme, of course, first seen used on previous-generation RPis which are incapable of MSD booting.

Meanwhile, I too have other stuff on my plate.

Regards,
Kent

Not sure if it's an API generally as well is it?

Hi all - is anyone else having problems with the BBC 320 streams? I listen to BBC 6 320 a lot, and find that there are infrequent short silences (1-3 seconds), and occasionally longer silences that stop the playback - I have then to press the start control on the web interface to start it playing again. There are also some dropouts where the pi becomes unresponsive - almost as if something has crashed (MPD?) and is restarting - only then will it respond to the controls. Also under the station logo, the kbps figure is never 320 - it varies between about 270 to 360kbps. On all the other 320 channels I use (Audiophile baroque etc), I don't get any dropouts and the kbps is rock steady at 320. I get similar behaviour on several systems (Pi0, Pi2 and Pi3, and various i2s dacs on Moode 3.5 and 3.6). Currently listening to it happening on Pi3, Suptronics x400, Moode 3.6 Advanced RT Kernel set to performance. Any ideas? (Have also tried reflashing, and am just doing so again to new sandisk class 10 16gb). Regards Adrian

Moode Audio Player for Raspberry Pi
Hi Adrian and John, yes I've had similar problems over the last few days with both my RPi 1B+/HiFiBerry Amp+ and RPi 3/HiFiBerry Digi Pro. It only happens with the BBC 320k streams. The Pi B+ stuttered with just short bursts of sound, then no sound at all, other non BBC 320 streams were all OK. Yesterday, the Pi3 however just gave a couple seconds then crashed, wouldn't reboot even, so loaded a new image last night. All seems to work OK for a few minutes now. The indicated bit rate does vary a lot.
Ian

What I meant to say was 'is this API generally available?'

@'the brit contingent'
I listen to Radio 6 a lot as well, been perfect at 320k until yesterday when I got a couple of 'brief dropouts'. Strangely this coincided with me bravely/foolishly doing an apt-get update/upgrade
Today has been perfect, showing stream at 300k which is new....
My hardware is zero w, phat dac, no tweaks except turn off hdmi and eth0, I tried 'performance' setting but changed back to 'save the planet'
50meg internet here, maybe too many folk are finding out about the BBC 320k streams so shhhhhhh don't tell others about it

Red face Help needed to create SABRE9018Q2C driver for moode 3.6 advanced kernel

Tim-san
I have SABRE9018Q2C based i2s DAC for raspberry pi 3B and currently no driver works with that DAC except DAC creator provided one. And I found provided driver does not work with Advanced RT kernel of moode 3.6.
DAC creator want to create driver for moode 3.6 Advanced kernel.

If you could help, I'd appreciate.
Thank you very much in advance.
