  1. JRiver has done a lot of work over the years to try to satisfy classical audio tagging needs. Here's a ten year old thread that has a lot of information you might find useful: https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?topic=45824.0 Composer and Work tags have been available for many years. One problem in this area is that there are no agreed standards on how to tag, so everyone does it a little differently.
  2. I apologize if I am repeating anything said above, but here's what I know about HDCD. The wikipedia article is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Definition_Compatible_Digital From that article: "HDCD encodes the equivalent of 20 bits worth of data in a 16-bit digital audio signal by using custom dithering, audio filters, and some reversible amplitude and gain encoding: Peak Extend, which is a reversible soft limiter; and Low Level Range Extend, which is a reversible gain on low-level signals. " So the discs are compatible with both hardware players that support HDCD and those that don't. When you rip a CD to FLAC, for example, the HDCD decoding information is included in the rip. There's no special rip required. Not all HDCD discs are labeled as such, so you may already have discs that are HDCD. With JRiver Media Center, you must re-analyze the lossless audio tracks in order for MC to know which discs were HDCD. Here's the current topic on our forum: https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,121124.0.html
  3. Thanks. It's amazing that it runs on a board with just 512MB of RAM.  Yes. It's really MC. Only the GUI is removed. Possibly. We haven't implemented the remote control that would be needed, though you could probably use VNC. This particular hardware doesn't support that, but it's doable in the future. The card is an 810 and I can't speak for StreamUnlimited on what they plan to do with it. We think there are other hardware opportunities since it runs on such minimal equipment now.
  4. Sure. It's a GUI-less version of MC, intended to be used as a server or renderer on ARM hardware. We ship it with an SSDP app for Android that makes finding it on your network easy. Then you connect to it with a browser. It runs a server that lets you load the webapp that allows configuration. I know it's kind of an obscure concept, but it's a nice headless solution. What else am I missing?
  5. Gizmo or JRemote? We're working on the Android version of JRemote now. Panel is an easy to use interface that runs in any web browser. https://wiki.jriver.com/index.php/Panel You could try it now if you have MC installed. Type localhost:52199 in your web browser on any machine where MC is running.
  6. Audiophiles are people who love music. The rest you describe can generate a lot of noise.
  7. For any manufacturers who may be reading, we're announcing this today: NEW: Blackbox Version of JRiver Media Center Aimed at manufacturers of audio and video hardware, a new "Blackbox" version of JRiver can now be hosted on ARM hardware and provide Media Center features such as Library Server and DLNA / UPnP, without a user interface. All control, including setup, is done from a phone, tablet, or PC. An Android app makes it easy to find the device on a network. JRiver has partnered with Austrian system integration company, StreamUnlimited Engineering, to build products for manufacturers.
  8. Here's the page on the JRiver Id: https://jriver.com/Id/ All of the Id's have some storage. The Id 300 has a 120GB SSD. They all function as a server or renderer.
  9. I'm posting a few JRiver Media Center 25.0 links here. HDCD Support https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,121124.0.html Cloudplay (lossless streaming) https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,120166.0.html iTunes Import https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,120942.0.html New in MC25 https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,119217.0.html
  10. You may have followed JRiver's entry into lossless streaming during the last six months, but there are some new aspects that expand the experience. Here's a quick summary: Cloudplay uses playlist uploads by users to generate Radio JRiver stations. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,120166.msg830680.html#msg830680 You can listen to your playlists or those of others from any location, using JRiver. JRiver pays the license fees. It's listener supported. You pay what you think it's worth. It requires JRiver Media Center 25. It's 100% lossless. We've just added the ability to generate playlists using a seed file or files that you provide from your local library. MC then finds compatible files from our server and adds them to your playlist. This is effectively a custom radio station. More here: https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,120871.msg835668.html#msg835668 Enter any artist, for example, in Play Doctor and here's what you get. I started with a local file from Etta James and allowed "more variety", but 100% from the server. The file locations are shown on the right side.
  11. Both Windows and Mac builds are now on the Download Page: https://jriver.com/download.html Not too many problems at this point. There's also a thread about a new agreement between Spotify and JRiver: https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,120137.0.html
  12. We've just posted early builds of JRiver Media Center 25 for Windows and Mac on our forum. If you purchased JRiver in 2019, you received an MC25 license that works with both. Installation instructions. Thanks for the support.
  13. Preview builds are now available. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,118417.0.html It's a port of JRiver Media Center, with the Panel web app interface. It is a media player for Android and it can play files to a DLNA Server. The pre-release price is $9.98.
  14. I'm sorry if anyone wasn't notified. We mailed every address we have. It may have gone to a spam folder or you may have previously unsubscribed. I apologize for this very serious breach of trust. It's inexcusable. Here's the announcement we posted on August 20. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,117123.0.html To summarize the damage. 1. Our commerce and license servers were taken offline immediately and were down about 5 days. 2. The attack used SQL injection and we should have prevented it. 3. No credit card information was lost. We don't store any and never have. 4. Email addresses probably were taken. 5. Passwords were probably taken, but we believe the encryption method protected them. 6. We recommend that JRiver forum passwords be changed. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php?action=profile Again, I'm extremely sorry. Jim Hillegass CEO, JRiver
  15. We build something like what you're looking for. https://jriver.com/Id/
  16. Nothing wrong with this equipment. Doesn't audiophile mean a love of music?
  17. If you like Roon, please use it. JRiver isn't an endpoint for Roon. If you want to play DSD, JRiver does that.
  18. Bubbleguuum is the developer of BubbleUPnP, but JRiver, not Whitebear, is the developer of JRiver Media Center. Maybe I'm misunderstanding your post thought.
  19. JRiver supports DSD. As Hendrik pointed out in this thread, trying to do DSD to our WDM driver is a little pointless, since MC supports DSD natively. https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,116611.msg806143.html#msg806143
  20. JRiver added support for Radio Paradise a few weeks ago. Its all FLAC. Great station! https://yabb.jriver.com/interact/index.php/topic,115480.0.html It's been very well received.
  21. That's reasonable. No idea if it's compliant. What I would do is delete the user's account and leave the posts. Unless the user name was the person's name, there's then no tie between the two. On our forum, a user can do this themselves. Most users don't make much personal information public on a forum.
  22. Bogus. It's silly to try to legislate this so carefully. If someone buys something from my company, that's something that isn't reversible. They did it. People seem to think that they can rewind history just like they do when they're watching a movie. Silly. We're all stuck with the history we've made for ourselves. Trying to pretty it up is a fairy tale. Chris, We need to revolt. We need to stand up for REALITY! Life isn't a video game. OK. I'm done with that. I do respect the importance of protecting personal data and telling people what we do with their data. We've had a privacy statement on our site for more than 10 years. I do respect the rights of individuals to decline marketing e-mails. We've had an unsubscribe page and an unsubscribe link in every marketing e-mail we've sent for ten years. And still we get cursed at. This whole thing reminds me of ISO 9000, the EU push to ensure quality of manufacturing. It was a big deal for a few years, then seemed to disappear. I'm sure the rules are still in force, but nobody cares. I guess I'm going to have to give up French Fries and Bratwurst.
