  1. Apologies for my late reply (not seeing notifications it seems - sorry). All good now - 2.8 is working well. Really clueless as to the problem.. after several reboots... it just worked. I did get another static episode, but since it rebooted, it’s worked flawlessly (touch wood..) I am thrilled that I am now able to use my USB cable with the V+ pin taped over. So now my DAC powers the XMOS USB board - without having to reboot the uRendu. As the uRendu is connected directly to my mini PC, I wasn’t able to access the GUI... and given the terrible design (my own!) of the cabinet, I would have rebooted by cutting power... not ideal...). I had been trying to get 2.8 using a USB cable without any pins taped - and connected direct to the router. I wasn’t able to use the taped USB cable using Squeezelite on 2.7. But had been using it happily while running MPD when I used Audirvana. Thanks to Andrew for helping me out once the card got lost in transit (never seemed to leave the US). Enjoying the music now - thanks Andrew and Jesus 😊
  2. Thanks Donivey - I have just had another go tonight, but can’t access the GUI .. that was at least possible when I tried a few days ago.. the Daphile/LMS server recognises the Squeezelite player on the uRendu, but it’s only playing static. I saw a post on another thread where Jesus warned someone about a possible ‘static’ issue if they reduced the latency (delay) too much. But not at all sure that he was referring to the white noise static I’m getting. So will check that... if I ever get the uRendu connected to the network again (resenting the router didn’t seem to help, sadly)
  3. I am only getting static/white noise when I play through Sonicorbiter 2.8 using Squeezelite. This has been tested when uRendu is wired to Asus Router. I can access the GUI fine. I have disabling DSD/DOP, but that doesn’t help. I use a Burson Conductor V2+ with an XMOS USB board. It all worked fine with 2.6 and 2.7. I have tried rebooting the uRendu and DAC. All appears fine through the Sonicorbiter interface, iPeng and Daphile’s interface. Tracks play... but only static comes through (stops as soon as I pause playback). Any ideas?
  4. I wanted to try Daphile for the first time... but was not able to connect my Synology NAS or my uRendu. Like Richard, I wanted to connect the uRendu directly from the PC (Kaby lake, i7 8550u). PC has two ethernet ports, so thought this would work. It’s easy to do on Mac and Windows, but I’ve never used Linux (wouldn’t count the uRendu!). My NAS has an IP address that doesn’t seem to change, but that isn’t working with Daphile (following NFS guide). The uRendu does change its IP address between and one similar I tried. But neither connected to Daphile. Any suggestions to help this fool out would be greatly appreciated 🙏 Hop all are safe and well, Luke
  5. Glad that worked for you there! i am a complete dunce with this stuff... I bought this Synology as my first NAS about 6mths back... so still figuring out which way is up... (on that note, it is actually sideways..)
  6. Apologies for not being clear. As bnbayer noted, I was indeed referring to the Control Panel in Synology's DSM. I found a number of actual duplicates using Synology's (free) Storage Analyser app. I also freed 1.8tb of phantom space by removing SynologyDrive - yay! I certainly feel feel relieved to got that sorted... it was driving me up the wall. I certainly hope others suffering from that kind of issue can find their cure soon 🙏
  7. I think i have sorted my duplicates issue. It was my NAS, not Audirvana that was responsible. Someone from Damien’s team suggested it might be related to my Synology. After chasing a number of red herrings, it was re-indexing my ‘music’ folder that seemed to fix it. If you think you might have this issue: Go to Control Panel > Indexing Service > Media Indexing.... https://www.synology.com/en-uk/knowledgebase/DSM/help/DSM/AdminCenter/application_mediaindexservice_general Thanks to those there who offered suggestions - and to the smart cookie from Audirvana who made me google for three days 🙏
  8. hey Lotriwer, did you ever try it? I was curious, myself!
  9. Seasons greetings to all 🎄🙂 I have been really enjoying the sound I'm getting from 3.5+. However, I have struggled with persistent duplicates (on Sierra). I thought I had solved this by adding new files whilst Audirvana is shut down, but alas... Creating new libraries every few weeks seems to help, but new duplicates (of old files) continue popping up.. or perhaps, it takes a few weeks to spot them (usually doubling of tracks within an album, but sometimes a doubling of albums)... Any suggestions would be appreciated. As upsampling to DSD and hardware came up, does anyone think there would be much to gain by upgrading my 2010 Mac mini? My 8gb of RAM, booted to an SD card (Audirvana running from RAM disk) works. However, it does struggle upsampling to DSD 128... but it generally works... (max for my DAC that’s limited to 384KHz). Being the bankrupt Scrooge that I am, I’m considering a Hackintosh option. I may also try moving back to Windows-land ... so I may upsample to DSD 256 (max for DAC), boot from RAM... but was still recovering from the trauma of living with XP through the decade of my uni years... eek. I am curious about Linux, though. Damien - any plans to release a Linux version? 🤞🙃🙏 I have been considering something like this: https://www.alibaba.com/product-detail/Newest-Fanless-Mini-PC-with-8th_60824344126.html?spm=a2700.galleryofferlist.0.0.5da32287JK2DFN However, I would ideally want one with two LAN ports (as I go direct to an ultraRegen) and an SD card reader... but presume I could use USB adapters (like I do now for the mini’s second LAN port). May the music bring the holiday cheer to all and sundry 🙂
  10. Whilst I never used the browsing features, I too primarily pick albums (rarely if ever tracks) from genres. However, I’ve created about 20+ smart playlists based on genres (another 60-odd based on albums and artists). Hard for Damien and co. to cater for all our different ... ‘play-flows’. Hopefully, the new remote can be developed over time. 🙂
  11. Merci for the remote update, Damien 🙏 As one of many who run a headless set up, the less I have to use a VNC, the better. Being able to edit playlists would be enormously helpful. Future updates that I would be grateful for: 1. Being able to add full albums to the end of the playlist queue (like the old version) 2. Edit criteria for smart playlists (add, edit or delete criteria) 3. Editing metadata (at least for album artists, album titles and genres) ... but maybe I’m the only one..?
  12. I have been able to import old playlists by adding “.m3u8” to the file name - but may work using “.m3u” too? (I never used iTunes). I had spent some time making new playlists in 3.5, before finding this trick... Hope that helps others.
  13. Just to report back to say that creating a new library file appears to have removed the duplicates in the library file and allowed me to import all my playlists. I have yet to do a thorough search for duplicates, but many of the problem albums at the top of my library seem fine (touch wood). 3.5.12 seems stable so far... but only been building new library so far. The prior issues I had with memory seems to be fixed too. So too is the annoying one when the last few seconds of an occasional song were cut off. Merck Damien for the update 🙏
  14. I have had similar issues - I think with all 3.5x versions. Some smart playlists import, whilst others don’t. Some were saved as m3u and others m3u8 - but some of each import, whilst others don’t. Even new smart playlists that I create in 3.5.12 are not importing. Due to an increasing number of duplicates, I have just created a new library file. I am able to import a little under half of all my playlists. (I have about ~50-odd, grouped into about 8 folders... some with extensive criteria.) 3.5.12 was initially crashing repeatedly upon waking up. Perhaps my old library was corrupted (I had used all the maintenance tools). Fingers crossed with the new library. (I’ll send crash reports if that doesn’t fix it). Thanks for the updates Damien. I can’t wait for updates to the IOS remote 🙂
  15. Damien - I can't thank you enough for the latest version. I'm enjoying the music more than ever with this update. I have been using Audirvana almost exclusively since it was released as freeware (2010?). Audirvana has continued to be the best 'bang for buck' in audio. It's been rare to find any hardware purchase that has improved the sound as much as your software updates have! After some hiccups along the way with the betas, v3.5 is working well (touch wood). Feauture request? perhaps not the time for such an ask. Apologies. is there any chance that the iOS remote app would allow us to change metadata? i primarily use smart playlists from my headless Mac mini. This relies on good metadata (particularly my quirky 'genre' labels). Managing metadata has been a most tedious affair via Splashtop on my iPad. Plus, with just 8gb of RAM, I'm not able to play music and use Splashtop simultaneously. If I was a little brighter, I'd no doubt be able to find some workaround for managing my metadata better. (I'm all ears people 🙂) Being able to update the metadata via the remote app - whilst listening to music, would make a huge difference to how I can manage my music. But I may well be alone in wanting such a feature? 🤔
