When I changed the “room” variable to be a unique value, I stopped getting this error.

Note that the hifizine instructions actually say to do this — “In the “Room” field, type in a different name.” — but it’s easy not to appreciate what they are telling you to do, I didn’t at first!)

Anyhow, try changing one of them (in EVERY OpenHome proxy you create) and see if that solves the problem.

Great article, this method works beautifully. Thank you for publishing it. It’s so nice to be able to stream Qobuz to my each of my stereo rigs alongside of my own music from my UPnP music server!

Qobuz, if you read this, please continue to offer a route to stream your music via DNLA/UPnP/OpenHome (eg BubbleUPnP). I want to use open source software, and I resent services that lock me into proprietary streaming solutions like Roon or Heos. Frankly, that’s the reason I opted for Qobuz over Amazon HD! I suspect there are lots of others like me who have no interest in running proprietary software or being forced to buy specific ‘approved’ hardware.

Lumin has the Qobuz icon and I am able to access my Qobuz account. As noted by doom above, I am unable to view Qobuz icon in Lumin when using BubbleUPnP server installed on my Volumio/Raspberry Pi 4. Still happy to be up and running!

Thanks a bunch John!!!

Installed BubbleUPnP server on Windows 10 computer and able to see the Raspberry in the Renderer section WHILE connected to the router thru ethernet connection. Able to stream QOBuz, though a little wonky as LUMIN sometimes shows the QObuz s=ettings and some times does not. However, I want to use the Raspberry wirelessly. When I connect wirelessly to the network, I lose the Raspberry from the Renderer/Client tab in BubbleUPnP. What am I missing?

I suceeded to install Bubble server on top of Volumio thanks to this plugin https://github.com/dgrzeszczak/Volumio-BubbleUPnP-Server/
Unfortunatly, Qobuz seems not working anymore :/

Comment on Syncing a music library to a Droidisk (or PiDisk) by nabussan https://www.hifizine.com/2018/12/syncing-a-music-library-to-a-droidisk-or-pidisk/comment-page-1/#comment-112677 Sun, 03 May 2020 10:02:32 +0000 https://www.hifizine.com/?p=11571#comment-112677 Thanks for your instructions!

In my case, to get the cronjob running on my Pi, I had to do the following:

1. Enable cronservice
a) Verify if cronservice is running: service cron status
b) To enable inactive cronservice: sudo systemctl enable cron

2. Replace echo rescan | ~/minimserver/bin/mscript:
a) Create rescan.sh file with command rescan and make it executable
b) In crontab, create the following job with full paths): 12 11 * * * /home/pi/minimserver/minimserver/bin/mscript /home/pi/minimserver/minimserver/bin/rescan.sh

Comment on PiDisk – adding the music services by Philip Eastburn https://www.hifizine.com/2016/06/pidisk-adding-music-services/comment-page-1/#comment-112675 Tue, 21 Apr 2020 16:34:02 +0000 http://www.hifizine.com/?p=10125#comment-112675 Thanks for your reply John, which I just spotted. My pidisk has been wired to router since February and is ‘out of the way’ so based on your advice I’ll leave it there. I’m having trouble installing Bubbleserver though. Java is installed (Minimserver running fine) and I’ve been following instructions on developer’s website but no luck to date.

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.)

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.
