Re: Audio recording

@Wizzabeck Ken, The OMXPlayer (so I learned) comes in the full Raspbian-Stretch of 2018-03-13. From the suggestion by tvjon I tried it with an rpi3B running Raspbian Stretch-Lite, but it is not installed. So, in a Terminal sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install omxplayer. Then download the file k...

Re: Spotify on the pi

I understand that the spotify app is not supported for the pi and there are several mediocre solutions/alternatives. So my conclusion is that spotify on rpi is just... not finished yet. I already had spotify as a plugin for kodi. Though it works, the UI is... meh. And I wanted spotify more as a sta...

Re: Analogue audio testing

Well, it's all a bit of a Curate's Egg (and not chocolate). Streaming BBC6 was fine and changing to BBC2 was OK, but Spotify was broken up and then the sound stopped. Returned to BBC6 and no sound, but restarting Squeezelite produced music, Radio Paradise was broken up sound and a couple of channel ...

Re: New Complete Web-Based SqueezePlug Version Available

Have you uprated the usb power on the pi?. SSH into the pi, at the command line type, echo max_usb_current=1 >> /boot/config.txt press enter, reboot the pi and your done. you need a good power supply, at least 2.5amps at 5volt (some good ones are a little over the 5volt) http://www.modmypi.com/raspb...

Re: New Complete Web-Based SqueezePlug Version Available

before you revert to the old OS, what about trying the upgrade/update routine on the pi, there might be a difference in the kernel used.

Just a thought.

Re: New Complete Web-Based SqueezePlug Version Available

Either, reboot enable the usb power outlet to max, use a power usb hub, subscribe to raspberry settings (buy the licence) and select usb outlet in the drop down, reboot and select squeezelite Advanced Settings . Ask over on the Squeezebox Community forum Ask on the Max2play forum good luck ronnie.
