Re: BBC Radio Streams

Anybody know if it's possible to somehow extract the 'what's playing' info from the BBC Radio feeds and therefore be able to "do stuff with it"? I can play R4 or R1 etc on my Pi but it's something I do in total blindness - I don't know what's going to be playing (unless it's a fixed slow in the wee...

Re: Looking To Build Internet Radio Stream Receiver

I would still suggest you have a play with LMS at sometime. The beauty of a rpi based system is that with a few sd cards one can wreak a lot havoc :) It can be installed on a rpi, Squeezelite (the player) added and has lots of plugins, sand a very helpful community. Audio output from the rpi can be ...

Re: Looking To Build Internet Radio Stream Receiver

The problem is that some of these web streaming radios are geo-locked. By withdrawing from aggregaters like TuneIn they are seeking to drive listeners to their own controlled environment and maybe revenue streams and advertising. If they are available world wide their streams may utilise lower bit r...

Re: Looking To Build Internet Radio Stream Receiver

Normally I would say, look at Logitechmediaserver (slimdevices forum) or MOode Audio or Volumio. There are of course many other of the same ilk. The problem with TuneIn is that it is loosing content as more and more radio providers move to web based streaming. You will need to research how the conte...

Re: Looking To Build Internet Radio Stream Receiver

TuneIn, iHeartRadio, Radio.com all have 'phone apps (I'm guessing about the latter as I can't download it in the UK). You don't say which rpi you have or if you have one at all. Which OS is on your 'phone ? I'm guessing Android Buy a Chromecast Audio (There are still some new, as well as used) Job d...

Re: Raspotify

Raspotify is not shown on the menu list.

Read the instructions again:

You need to start Spotify on another device and then select Raspotify.

Bye the way, the install is just a one liner if you go to git hub

Have you tried this?

Open a terminal:
sudo raspi-config > Advanced options > Resolution > select mode 82
save,exit and reboot.

On the desktop:
Applications menu > Preferences > Screen configuration > Configure > Screens > HDMI-1 > Resolution > 1920x1080 > Configure > Apply > OK

Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

Hey Cappers

Look (and maybe ask) on the pink fish media forum and the wigwam forum.

These also have DIY sections which might provide info.

Also slimdevices forum for LMS (including threads on home built stuff).

iQaudio is UK based and Gordon is very helpful (an email might elicit advice).

Re: Spotify streaming and DAC, Amp advice

OK, so depending where in the world you are located, and budget available, I would suggest that it should be relatively easy to pick up a used amp. If you have access to any of the hifi forums that are online, you might be able to source a good quality amp. And sometimes a dac hat for the pi. There ...

Hi Cappers Most pi based Spotify-Connect clients require that one has the Premium subscription. There are several to choose from. The advatage of using a pi is that one can "contrast and compare" with a couple of sd cards. Which OS is on your 'phone and how do you normally connect to the speakers? A...

@timg236

This is just a small thing, but you may get more attention to this thread if your user name is in the same colour as your Raspberry Pi Engineer & Forum Moderator colleagues.

At first, I thought it was a general query post (or complaint).

If the mdac works on USB, then when you change to out put to your 2704 da you will have to reset the audio output.

If you click on the red more then you will see the info.

A reboot will be required.
