  1. 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.
  2. ...this was talking about Systeminfo-Software not showing version number of the various components installed and.....yes, gp-update fixed it. Thanks
  3. ..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..
  4. 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:
  5. 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 and not only with Linn Kazoo. Unfortunateky, since October 2019, Qobuz used only with upmpdcli without BubbleUPnPServer stopped working. The reason is explained here: 2019-10-06 Qobuz access was revoked: If you were using Qobuz and it's not working any more, don't pull your hair, the Qobuz plugin stopped working (either through the Media Server or with OHCredentials). Qobuz revoked the app_id, and also deleted the API documentation on Github. If you are a hardware integrator/manufacturer using upmpdcli to support Qobuz access (I know there are some), I made a modification to the Qobuz plugin so that the app_id/secret can be stored externally instead of being embedded in the source. This means that, if you can convince Qobuz to supply you with the appropriate pair, you can easily restore function, without having to support a modified module. Of course, this supposes that the API itself does not change. The question now becomes: is the same happening with Tidal now?
  6. Ok I retried, what I missed was to do a reboot after changing the frequencies in "TWK various". Thanks
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
  9. Thank you Antonello, is there any way to check or log the effective sample rate of the track being played on the client (Squeezelite) size?
  10. Question on Squeezelite-R2 and DSD Using the DSDPlayer plugin on LMS (version 7.9.2) and Squeezelite-R2 on Gentooplayer configured as follows: ie /etc/conf.d/squeezelite-R2 SL_OPTS="-C 1 -D :u32be -o hw:CARD=Control,DEV=0 -r 44100-384000 -b 2080:3528 -n GentooPlayer-R2 -m 00:e0:4s:78:d1:47" The Dac is a Khadas Tone Board: Card 0, ID `Control', name `Khadas Tone Control' Device 0, ID `USB Audio', name `USB Audio', 1 subdevices (1 available) 2 channels, sampling rate 44100..768000 Hz Sample formats: S16_LE, S32_LE, SPECIAL, DSD_U32_BE Buffer size range from 16 to 262144 Period size range from 8 to 131072 Subdevice 0, name `subdevice #0' I believe in this case DOP is used, correct? There is no resample whatsoever of DSD source files on the LMS server side, correct? Asking simply because I can get VERY good results up to and including DSD256, with optimal audio quality!!!

  11. Did you have ramsystem active? I had the same problem after launching gp-update and receiving a message similar to "you cannot run gp-update wih ramsystem". From terminal I removed ramdisk, which caused a reboot and everything was fine then. I did my tewak on arm_frequency, as I explained in my previous post #867, and then I re-enabled ramsystem.
  12. Thank you! I started playing a little bit with clocking.... In reality I'm trying to understand how much I can underclock, based on this 2018 note from Archimago. Since I'm experimenting on a raspberry pi4, I tweaked only arm_freq=1000. In fact, according to raspberry documentation https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt/overclocking.md gpu_freq defaults to 500 on pi4, the only other possible value is 600, so I left the default core_freq defaults to 500 on pi4, the only other possible value is 600, so I left the default sdram_freq defaults to 3200 on pi4, no other value is possible
  13. A GREAT thanks to @antonellocaroli for debugging and solving my issue directly on my system.... Gentooplayer was halting during reboot due to a particular configuration of my Samba share with an empty password, requiring to type a "RETURN" character to proceed, thus preventing the automatic mount of the share itself at boot. All this was happening before ssh and web interface were activated, thus preventing any kind of connection to the raspberry!
  14. Thanks, for the moment being I'll stick to Moode and Gentooplayer then 😎
