Bear in mind that Wifi is much less suitable than Ethernet for a server, even if it seems to be working there is high and variable packet latency. But I suppose it can’t hurt to try 🙂 (Sorry for the slow response.)

Comment on How to stream Qobuz to almost anything by John Reekie https://www.hifizine.com/2019/07/stream-qobuz-to-anything/comment-page-1/#comment-112669 Thu, 26 Mar 2020 04:29:55 +0000 https://www.hifizine.com/?p=12023#comment-112669 Hi, it sounds like perhaps you are not selecting the OpenHome version (created by BubbleUPnPServer) in the renderer? Kazoo and Lumin work fine with Qobuz, I use them regularly 🙂

I’m trying to get Qobuz to stream to a Marantz ND8006, but the controller options mentioned (Linn Kazoo, Lumin) show only Tidal. Does anyone know if those apps stopped supporting Qobuz? The renderer I’m using supports Tidal, among other streaming services, via the HEOS app, but I don’t see why this would prevent other controllers from showing a Qobuz login. Did I make a mistake configuring BubbleUPnP? I’m trying the free version of mconnect, and it works with Qobuz so far, so I suspect not.

Comment on PiDisk – adding the music services by Philip Eastburn https://www.hifizine.com/2016/06/pidisk-adding-music-services/comment-page-1/#comment-112665 Sun, 23 Feb 2020 16:16:36 +0000 http://www.hifizine.com/?p=10125#comment-112665 Hi John, thanks for your reply. Not quite sure exactly how I did it but the existing FLAC files are now showing in Mac Finder as content of the pidisk and I can point Minimserver at the folder with FLAC files. This website seemed to provide the solution: https://raspi.tv/2012/how-to-mount-and-use-a-usb-hard-disk-with-the-raspberry-pi. Particularly cd /media pidisk then ls -l to show the top level directory. One drawback is that pidisk can’t be accessed if I unplug ethernet from router. I assumed that ethernet connection wouldn’t be required as RPi3B+ had wifi capability. I will investigate further.

What path does the drive mount at – and is that what you added to minimserver?

Wanted to use disk with these already stored rather than a new blank disk to save time having to transfer large amount. Additional point: there is a large question next to pidisk icon in Finder window though I can still connect as registered user.

I have a NTFS drive (Maxtor M3 1TB) with 20GB FLAC files. Prompted by commenter Jim Hardy above I set up a pidisk skipping the formatting step. I used Buster lite. It worked apart from the pidisk has no content – the 20 GB of FLAC files aren’t showing up. When I copied some files across via Finder as recommended they do appear as content for pidisk and are available through Minimserver. If I plug the drive back into Mac the 20GB of FLAC files are there. I’ve searched for answers but no luck. Any ideas before I start again with a new drive formatted as ext4? I using RPi 3B+ so assume the USB has enough current for the Maxtor drive? regards Philip

Comment on Virtualizing Roon Server – Part 2 by John Reekie https://www.hifizine.com/2019/12/virtualizing-roon-server-part-2/comment-page-1/#comment-112661 Fri, 14 Feb 2020 13:34:48 +0000 https://www.hifizine.com/?p=12610#comment-112661 “I guess my last question is: now that all the experiments are done, what are you gonna run RoonServer on?”
Well, after all this time 🙂 I’m still using the virtualized RoonServer. I suppose because it’s fine and my library was already fully indexed.

Or you could use something that has an “internal” drive like the ODroid HC1/HC2 – https://www.hifizine.com/2018/02/droidisk-an-inexpensive-compact-music-server/
HTH (?)
