  1. Thanks for the report. That line has now been removed. The linked section is not ready for publication just yet.
  2. While you wait for Peter... Blue circle is perfectly normal. It just means that there is nothing in the device playlist. Most likely reason your iPad can't see the LUMIN is a network issue. Please turn everything in your network off (including the iPad) and then power-on in the following sequence: Router All other networking equipment such as Network Switches and Wi-Fi Access Points Music Server (if you have one) LUMIN S1 or T1 LUMIN App If that doesn't work, please mention here ready for Peter.
  3. It will try and find the music in the location it was told it existed. If it isn't there, it will skip to the next track and try again. It wont try and find the same tracks on a different server or anything magic like that (so if you rename a server, it won't be able to find any tracks) Nor will it stop playing tracks that do exist, just because another server is off.
  4. No, I think he means when you go to Settings > Music Library and click to choose a Music Library. I'm not sure it's possible, but Peter will know.
  5. If a more plug-and-play option is preferable, then please consider LUMIN L1 - it behaves as a USB hard disk when plugged into a computer and then automatically becomes a music server when on the network - it is obviously optimised for LUMIN tag browsing. When moving to Tag Browsing, it's important to ensure that your music is tagged correctly - MP3Tag can do this automatically.
  6. This is normal when just connecting a Hard Disk Drive directly to LUMIN via USB. To gain the 'Tag Browsing', please use a Computer or NAS running a good server such as Minimserver.
  7. I take it you're using a phone version of the app? The link between the browsing and playlist isn't as clear as with a tablet version, so maybe borrow one for a bit if you can until you get used to it - just because the effect that your choices have between browse and playlist are much more instantly visible. Basically, LUMIN only plays the LUMIN playlist. All you can do in browse is add things to the LUMIN playlist. Swipe right to view the playlist in the phone version. If you want to add the whole 'Blues' TIDAL playlist to your LUMIN playlist, you have to find the playlis
  8. The screen is OLED and can have image burn under extreme circumstances. I went through a period (maybe a year) of switching off a load of electronics at night (including my network switch but not LUMIN) and I can now see a negative "Network error" text on the screen. Unfortunately, I never noticed it was showing that message as the switch to turn everything off at night (and on again in the morning) was in a different room. Also, because I had been taking photos of the LUMIN screen, it was set to 'bright'. Oops.
  9. Hi Liam Just to confirm - in App > Settings > LUMIN name > Options you have Internet Radio Setting TuneIn Radio Sign In set to the same name as the URL you've got above. i.e. obrianmailtunein. Then hit enter. And then you've tapped Update Radio Channels? I'm in the UK and I'm seeing Classic FM and Jazz FM for example (sadly BBC are no longer showing). Edit: I just entered your username and can see The UK 1940s OTR, The UK 1940s Radio Station and 1940's Radio Big Band
  10. In that case there are no technical problems. It should sound great. However, most of the criteria involved when choosing a power amplifier are to do with matching to your speakers. Making sure they are a good match for each other would be my priority.
  11. Ah right, I understand. What you're seeing is a list of servers. It's not that it's under MinimServer as such. It's that Minimserver was the currently selected server and when you click it, you can change the server. In this case 'LUMIN T1 USB Music Server' is what you want to be browsing in order to see the contents of the drive. Once you have a server selected, the 'Options' menu item under it is just for that particular server. I think we got confused when you said you could see the thumb drive, so we assumed you'd gone through this same process in order to view the music on that.
  12. stefano_mbp is correct above - we've actually just changed the layout of this area and updated our instructions page: See here: http://www.luminmusic.com/support-app.html#playlist I'll paste it below - but it might not read as well: Save and Load: The 'Playlist' button (highlighted) is used to both Save and Load Playlists. Save new: Type in your new Playlist Name in the text box and then tap the 'Save' button. Overwrite: Tap the Playlist Name in the list that you wish to overwrite and then tap the 'Save' button. Load: Tap your chosen Playlist N
  13. Hi DrNikonian First, you need to have the MinimStreamer package installed on MinimServer. This may require updating MinimServer to the latest version: https://minimstreamer.com/installing.html Then in MinimServer > Properties > System Tab you should see some new fields (highlighted below): The green highlighted field is where these transcoding strings should be entered. (although on the latest MinimServer and MinimStreamer, I can't get the strings listed above to be accepted) More help here: https://minimstreamer.com/userguide.html#Transcoding
  14. You need a really long screwdriver to reach from the back to the front along the extrusion to the top 2 screws to let the top slide off. It's pozidrive.
  15. Roon isn't really an app - it's a whole system of server, processor and app. If features dsp processing, upsampling/downsampling and other features, so it definitely has the possibility of sounding different. You are right that UPnP apps shouldn't sound different from one another though.
