Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi ready for download

Hi TrueHL, Thanks for this. I installed it yesterday, but it took overnight for Logitech Media Server to scan my music library (same as my previous LMS builds on rpi). Now its up and running it seems good. I haven't stress tested it extensively yet, just some flacs and the iplayer plugin, but its wo...

Re: Logitech Media Server (the server formerly known as Sque

Hi truehl

When I installed LMS on SSODS i copied the pearl tar.gz to /tmp (I used wget to download it directly on the rpi). Then refreshing page 2 of the install gui shows up the LMS files in section c), select it and proceed with the install.

Re: Logitech Media Server (the server formerly known as Sque

Hi Thomas, I've been running for a few days with LMS on SSODS on ArchLinux and I have to say I'm pretty pleased with it. Its been perfectly usable, has handled playing music, streaming radio and syncing multiple players, and playing multiple sources to different players without issue. I haven't seen...

Re: Logitech Media Server (the server formerly known as Sque

Hi Vurted, I gave it another try this morning and its much improved, and slimctrl is usable, though not as fast as I'm used to (but LMS was on a 1.4Gz centrino chip with 1GB ram before). I'm still seeing the processor get stuck waiting for IO, goodness knows what its up to, it wasn't playing anythin...

Re: Logitech Media Server (the server formerly known as Sque

Hi, thanks for you reply. The scan has completed now, took about 4 hours for ~1600 tracks. The cpu settled down after that, and it seemed ok via the web gui and the iplayer app was good on my SB radio. However, i use squeezectrl on an ipaq as my main control and this was painfully slow. I need to pl...

Re: Logitech Media Server (the server formerly known as Sque

Hi, Thanks for posting up about SSODS (had not come across it before). I have got it setup now on Archlinux using stable 7.7.2. I have my music library on an external usb hdd. When I try to scan my music library the Pi grinds to a halt. Interesting the cpu usage by the slimserver itself is quite low...

Re: Raspbmc Distribution now in Beta

I've also got this up and running. It took a really long time on the first boot. I gave up and went and mowed the lawn. When I came back there was XBMC. I only got openelec running yesterday, but this does seem more responsive than that. Played back some content pulled from a CIFS share on my FreeNA...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Those options in XBMC for passthrough are only for AC3 (Dolby Digital) and DTS. There is no option to pass AAC through undecoded. I'm not even sure if many/any receivers can natively handle AAC. After confirming that mine can only do AC3 and DTS but no AAC I've opted to track down whatever files ha...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Hi, me again. I've searched and searched but cannot find answer to this, but I think I must be doing something wrong, else there would be more posts about this wouldn't there? I've been watching a h264 encoded HD video (looks awesome, v impressed!) the audio track is AAC encoded 5.1 and xbmc has det...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Good news! Got it sorted. :D A change of power supply has sorted it, its still 5v 1000ma, but this one works. Unfortunately its not mine so I'll have to get another one that works.

Thanks again!

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

Cheers for the quick responses :) My new SD card arrived this morning - still exactly the same issue though :( @funnel - I've tried it without the keyboard, i've tried it with nothing plugged in at all except the HDMI to DVI cable. It crashes without any load on the USB ports, and without the ethern...

Re: OpenELEC meets Raspberry Pi - part 1 (XBMC)

I wonder if someone can assist me. I got my rpi a couple of days ago and it seemed ok under the debian image. However I cannot get OpenELEC to work. I've tried rolling my own under Ubuntu 12.04, and I've tried the latest image posted in this thread, plus two other most recent ones from here (http://...
