The file system is ntfs and I have installed the additional drivers for additional file systems (I also tried with an ext4 formatted drive, same result). I set a password and when first accessing the share on windows I was asked for username and password to which I entered username tc and password the one I set.

When you say login, login where? I want to access the share from a windows machine.

I can ssh in and if I try to write to the drive I get permission denied.

Hello! I have read great things about pCP and was hoping to give it a try.

I have a couple of uninformed questions, if you'd bare with me for a few lines:
- I don't have all my music downloaded, I rely on AirPlay or Spotify to play a lot of music
- I have installed a Spotify Connect server on my current RPi that I love and use most often

Would there be a flow in pCP that would allow me to stream music in such a way? Or am I limited to playing locally stored music?

Thanks for any insight,
Best regards,

hi Rafa,

There are Logitech Media Server (LMS) plugins that give you AirPlay and Spotify streaming. LMS runs on various platforms.

There is a lot of help on the Squeezebox forums.

I'm a retired audio designer (well "retired" means being my own boss and working only on projects and designs that interest me and are not commercially driven ) - I've built streamer hardware based on the RPi (well CM3 modules so we can optimise the hardware).

Our Audio hardware is interfaced to the RPi via USB and we also have a serial UART channel so we can also communicate with the Linux hardware with an APi.

I'm fully aware of the RPi USB PHY limitations, but USB gives us:-

1. DAC as Audio Master clock (Critically important).

2. DSD and 384 / 768KHz High Res support

We can also perform MQA hardware decode in the USB audio coprocessor (XMOS).

I'm old school and all this streaming talk goes way over my head, the only streaming device I've really used was the SBT (just for radio stations (BBC) - no LMS server installed), but I remember it was very intuitive and "just worked".

Some say that the UI is dated, but to me that's just stupid - IMO its logical, clean and simple, I dont need or WANT more...

I remember the days Vista was released with its AERO UI (or some such) which required a super computer to run it and at the end of the day was slower then my old XP box...

It annoys me that these "youngsters" care about flashy looking UI's at the expense of stability, usability and responsiveness - but I digress....

Would you mind me using your software on my hardware designs (if we move forward I'd be happy to send you sample units) - and can your software:-

1. Be installed on 4GB eMMC of the CM3 module, we could use the CM3 lite and external eMMC (upto 256GB) but the eMMC memory is packaged in BGA devices and this brings a whole bag of hurt to production.

2. Drive a local UI (such as an internal touch screen or HDMI monitor + wireless keyboard)?

I'd be happy to "donate" a fee per unit installed... if we work together...
Time is my worst enemy!

Default picoplayer no DSD128 audio with Allo Boss and iQAudio DAC+


maybe somebody here can help me on this matter. Using piCorePlayer (v4.0.0-b7 but same with 3.5, squeezelite with DSD mod) on LMS I'm able to play DSD64 (using C3-PO Plugin transcoding from PCM or DSD64 native file using DSDPlay plugin). Trying DSD128 files or transcoding from PCM to DSD128 I have no audio.

I understand DOP can't support DSD256 but I guess DSD128 is supported by Allo Boss (I was able to play DSD128 files using Volumio)

There is any special setting for piCorePlayer in order to obtain DSD128 playback ?

Same problem using iQaudio DAC+ but not sure if it supports DSD128
