Anyone using HQPD app?

Just wondering is anyone has used the android app to control HQP? I've been using Roon without any issue but frankly for what I need its a rather expensive solution.  The app looks promising.  Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Looks interesting, but it will not work with HQPlayer Embedded which is what I am currently running.  Hopefully, the author will add functionality to stream Tidal/Quobz/Deezer/Spotify :-), if support for that is added I will definitely purchase the license.

I am beta testing it.

It has a few small rough edges to be ironed out before it becomes commercially available, but it is definitely usable for playback..

The app is really "just" a remote interface to HQPlayer Desktop, so I am not sure how easy and if it will ever be able to stream music services. Much depends on how much is implemented by HQPlayer itself. For example, it does not have a database, but it relies on HQPlayer's library file.

I am a beta tester as bibo01.

HQPDcontrol is "just" a light and fast remote to control HQP over the network.

It works on Android > 5.1 (arm and intel cpu).

Unlike all the other beta testers I have no problems both on a smarthphone and a tablet.

Here are some screenshots

Hello,

I'm the author.

The application is not intended to replace programs "Roon" category.

I wanted to have a remote control tool for HQPlayer Desktop.

Control options are given by the functionality currently available in the HQPlayer API.

There is almost nothing stored on Android devices. Just the structure of the music library.

Android does not see individual files in music library and therefore has no access to ID3 tag information either. Therefore, for example, the length information for each track is not displayed (is available only after playback starts).

 

Best regards,

Hi Ales
even though I can never say that the app works both in the windws environment and on mac.

sistema:

yes Ales, an android v. 6.0.1 and a router to which I draw the network address

Thanks for poping up, any chance you will release an iOS version in the future? If so, that would be a much better alternative for apps like windows remote control.

 

The whole control can be simply on iPad. iOS Roon for music library browsing and HQPD for setting the HQplayer's filter, I think it's almost a perfection solution.

Software: Roon, Tidal, HQplayer 

HQplayer PC: i9 7980XE, Titan Xp; i9 9900K, Titan V

USB tweaks: Intona, Uptone (ISO) regen, LPS-1, LPS-1.2, Sbooster Vbus2, Curious cables, SUPRA Certified HiSpeed USB cable

When switching control from Win to Mac (and vice versa), do you change the IP address in HQPDcontrol?

yes, I use a router exclusively connected to windows server with the fixed, when I log on mac (portable) router sees another device, and generates a different ip

ano, používám směrovač, který je výhradně připojen k oknu serveru s pevnou, když se přihlásím na mac (přenosný) směrovač vidí jiné zařízení a generuje jiný

 

Do you always upgrade the music library in HQPDcontrol after switching?

Right now I'm trying to bring down the life for Android.
It's not easy :)

The iOS port will have to wait :(

Best of luck and keep us updated about the incoming iOS version. I'm more than happy to do the beta test.:)

OK.

Could you please describe the trouble once again?

 

I can give you the info.

 

Case 1

HQP on Mac OS + Volume -60 min / -10 max ----> volume on HQPDcontrol is ok

 

Case 2

HQP on Win Server 16 + Volume -15 min / -10 max ----> volume on HQPDcontrol is OK with PCM

HQP on Win Server 16 + Volume -15 min / -10 max ----> volume on HQPDcontrol is NOT WORKING with SDM

 

Personally I do not have this issue! Everything works fine!

Dos the app require us to load our library into HQPlayer's library function (rudimentary), or just point to our music files?

Thanks!

I do not have DSD DAC, so I try this:

1) in HQP Settings - SDM Pack - DoP value
2) I save settings
3) HQP output is set to SDM (DSD)

After switching output type, I can not move the volume control even though I have a range of -6 to 0dB.

It looks ok. You do not have a DSD Dac!
