I have a Synology NAS. I could access the files but nothing was plaiyed. Start play and nothing . Could the config made in MPD.conf influence this ? Before installing the plugin I know that it worked I have deleted the share and share again but noq I can not mount it . I receive this error : On Server side I do not touch anything :
Code:
Dec 01 20:23:02 volumio volumio[1039]: info: Adding a new share

I don't think changing the devicename in the audio_output section could affect that. Probably you made some other system changes which could cause the issue (?)

Hi again ,

I have managed to mount the synology nas using cifs shares.
On my server I have a few DSD files. Before installing the peppymeter playing those files resulted in a showing on DAc display 5.6 MHZ DSD . But now it is displaying 705.6 PCM .
Could be this the reason :
Code:
audio_output {
                type            "alsa"
                name            "peppyalsa"
                device          "peppyalsa"
                dop                     "no"
Changing the above conf in mpd.conf affect the audio quality ? meaning that some files are limited ..?

regards

Hi,

The author if that Quarantine player faced the same issue with DSD files. The workaround he is using is to define two outputs in the mpd.conf file. One is for DAC and the other for the PeppyMeter. Here is his message:

My solution is to configure mpd.conf with 2 Alsa devices .
One is direct to my external DSD DAC, while the other goes to peppyalsa.
In asound.conf I configured the peppyalsa slave as my internal dac or even the pi headphones which not support did at all.

So when playing dsd file (even 256!) the mid send it to my DAC and play it as 256DSD , on the other because the other dac is not support DSD, MPD converts it to PCM

mpd.conf

audio_output {
type "alsa"
name "peppyalsa"
device "peppyalsa"
dop "yes"
}
audio_output {
type "alsa"
name "alsa"
device "hw:5,0"
dop "no"
}

asound.conf

ctl.!default {
type hw
card 2
}

pcm.peppyalsa {
type meter
slave.pcm "hw:2,0"
scopes.0 peppyalsa
}

pcm.softvol_and_peppyalsa {
type softvol
slave.pcm "peppyalsa"
control {
name "PCM"
card 2
}
}

You can contact him if you will face any issue with this approach.
Best regards

Hi ,

The issue is caused by modiffying the mpd.conf with peppyalsa . I revert the changes to alsa :
Code:
audio_output {
                type            "alsa"
                name            "alsa"
                device          "hw:5,0"
                dop                     "no"
And now the DAAC shos correct info on display : 5.64 DSD

Thanks

It looks like there is some interest in the PeppyMeter in the Volumio community:
Install peppy meter in volumio - Help and Support - Volumio
Hopefully the PeppyMeter plugin for Volumio will be created soon.

Best regards
