Re: Mounting QNAP NAS

Just to preface this post with the warning that this is a method I use, I have cobbled it together from trial and tribulation. It worked for me this morning and I suggest that you try it on a spare card before commiting to a build (at least back up the fstab file first). So this is a rpi3b running r...

Missing sound card

So I have a rpi1B with the Wolfson Audio card fitted. It works using piCorPlayer OS as both a server fro LMS and also as a Player. I remember that some time ago I used the Raspbian OS and Squeezelite on it for the same function, maybe in Stretch or it might have been Jessie. Anyways, I have just tri...

Did you ever solve this? Encountering a similar problem myself I have a raspberry pi 3b running Raspbian Stretch with desktop. I can mount a share on a Qnap TS121 NAS using NFS.

Re: Spotify Music Player for RPI?

To be clear, raspotify is just a version of librespot that someone made easy to install. Librespot is the software that deserves praise. Mopidy provides a more general purpose audio player (online radio, local files, etc) and a Web page user interface. It does not support Spotify Connect. All of th...

Hi I am testing a new device based on CM RPI3B+ that works as a streamer to DACs. There is a major problem when using the GB ethernet , even streaming PCM24bit/192Khz (or higher) will result in noise (clicks and pops) If we force Ethernet to 10/100 speed , all is fine , however we migrated to rpi3b...

Hello, I wanted to ask if you can install on the Raspberry Pi 3 b + Spotify and then transferred to a music system via Aux (3.5mm jack)?
Thanks in advance
Do you want to use "Free" Spotify or "Premium" ?

For future reference: it's probably quicker to search the internet for the standard location of configuration files :mrgreen:
Top hit for 'debian sshd_config location' has the correct location

If you can point me to where it is I'll be much obliged.
