  1. Please find below a recap of the steps required to install and run Tidal connect on a raspberry. I did this on top of a raspberry pi4 running Moode, but conceptually this should work on any raspberry with Debian. The starting point is coming from this thread on raspberrypi.org: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=297771 Connect to the raspberry using ssh and launch the installation as indicated in https://github.com/shawaj/HiTide url -sSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/shawaj/HiTide/main/install.sh | sudo bash
  2. Yes flashed the image on the card using Balena Etcher... Since piCorePlyer is one of the few distros of raspberry that I hadn't tested out yet over the years (RuneAudio, Volumio, Audiophile Linux, Moode, RoopieeeXL, Gentooplayer..) I then tried the official piCorePlayer (ver 7.0.0 23-Dec-2020) and it worked flawlessly at first attempt. It sounds good but probably slightly "thinner" than Squeezelite-R2 on Gentoplayer. In any case, at the end of the day, for the moment I'm staying on Gentooplayer wjhich is giving me many more "tools" to use: in first place I can select on th
  3. Downloaded the files. put them together with 7zip, flashed the SD card.... it does not boot on my pi4...
  4. If yiu qnt to leverage on something already implemented and that needs only some configuration, you might have a look to GentooPlayer. There is also a thread here on audiphilestyle. It provides already services such as squeezelite2 (client for LMS echosystem), or easy configurable "web interface" integration with MPD+upmdcli, either using or not BubbleUPnPServer for streaming.... etc
  5. @al2813 you might want to give a try using Gentooplayer on your raspberry pi4. You will still have the opportunity to run Roonbridge on it, but also to experiment with other player options such as LMS+Squeezelite or MPD+upmpdcli....
  6. I just asked this specific question on dyiaudio to user cdsganes .....
  7. ...which I believe was my case!
  8. The update to upmpdcli to 1.4.10 worked. So thanks again. About mConnect: the fact is that with mConnect you are actually streaming from your smartphone, so if you exit the app, you stop streaming. With Kazoo (or Lumin App or the newest Linn App etc), the app is indeed only a controller, you are streaming "server side" through upmpdcli and (if you use it) BubbleUPnPServer. Therefore, even if you exit the app, streaming goes on....that's why I usually stream this way.
  9. ...this was talking about Systeminfo-Software not showing version number of the various components installed and.....yes, gp-update fixed it. Thanks
  10. ..answering one year later..... my HiFiMan 400i headphones remained in a drawer at the office in Milan, but the Khadas Tone Board is with me and I'm now "smart working" at home in Rome. Here I use it with 300 Ohms Sennheiser HD600. But in this case i much prefer the sound with a headphone amp in between the Khadas and the headphones, a Linear Tube Audio Micro Zotl 2..
  11. I just noticed this news in https://www.lesbonscomptes.com/upmpdcli/ 2020-05-17 upmpdcli 1.4.10 replaces the old Tidal API token, which did not work any more. The raspbian Jessie packages are back, for those people which can't upgrade to a newer Debian. @antonellocaroli which version of upmpdcli did you include in Gentooplayer 2.13? I'm asking because, for some reason, the menu item "Systeminfo-Software" is just listing the installed components, but not their version:
  12. Tidal UPnP streaming through BubbleUPnPServer has been working for quite some time. I have been using it in this way since a few year ago, see this post in January 2017. Later, the other distro I was using on my raspberries (Moode) implemented UPnP streaming through upmpdcli in version 4.0.0, released in January 2018. In practice, through upmdpcli it was possible to stream both Qobuz and Tidal without the need of BubbleUPnPServer. IMO BubbleUPnPServer remains anyway preferable since it provides OpenHome compatibility, thus working also with Lumin App for Ipad
  13. Ok I retried, what I missed was to do a reboot after changing the frequencies in "TWK various". Thanks
  14. I have version 2.12 I also struggled to change the various frequencies using the menu item "System Avanzate/TWK Various". I tried setting the values to "default", Exceute, the values I wanted, Execute again. But it did not work. At that point I simply updated the file /boot/config.txt with the values I want, the values suggested by Archimago for Raspberry Pi3 here: # Archimago's CRAAP Pi 3 B+ Settings... arm_freq=1000 sdram_freq=500 core_freq=400 gpu_freq=300 ...and the frequencies where set as desired after a reboot.
  15. I installed ver 2.1.0 on one of my raspberry (a Pi3B+) with Allo Boss Dac, enabling Squeezelite-R2, MPD bit perfect, upmpdcli and myMPD. I also mounted a samba share (with empty password) from another raspberry in my LAN for my music library and finally activated Ram System Mode 2. It took about 30 minutes to set up, plus 20 minutes or so for myMPD to rescan 1.5Tb of music files. All good at first attempt. Thanks again Antonello!!! This is really an excellent system!
