Re: [How To] Multi-Room Audio (Cheap) (iOS Only for now)

This is a great concept. I cant wait to have the time to try this. It will give my wife a way to send Amazon music to a Chromecast setup. The web UI aspect is a bit out of my knowledge. Can you assist in what to do in order to get the node UI to work, or point me in the direction of a good tutorial?...

Should give you instructions, you'll need to set up just LMS (logitech media server), set up the share (your disk drive, USB ...)

If you run into problems one of the squeezeplug threads should answer it, if you can't find the answer, the developer is extremely helpful.

Re: Connected HDD to RasPi for Stream media to iPad

Logitech media server works. It's a upnp server. See squeezeplug project.

There are a few upnp videos players in App Store. iPeng is great for music only playback.

If you just setup up as a smb share. Files Connect in the App Store is good. You can stream or download for later

Halfabiscuit,
Gparted on another Linux machine or using the gparted live cd(Mac or windows machine) is what I find to be the easiest method.

Re: squeezeplug for raspberry pi is the business

Thomas,
How's the Raspbian image coming along? I have been very impressed with the XBMC distos based on Raspbian. There is supposedly improvements to the Alsa driver in the 3.2.21 kernel used for Xbian. With that said, excellent work and I am eager to see the next release.

Thanks

Re: squeezeplug for raspberry pi is the business

May I ask what are you planning to use GUI for? There may be another way to easily do what you need. If you are using Logitech Media Server then there already is a web based gui at port 9000.

Re: Android XBMC remote and OpenELEC

Definately confirm the port number too, in "allow control of XBMC via http".
I noticed it was either 8080 or 80 depending on whose XBMC disto you are using. It was easy for me to overlook at first.
Raspbmc and Openelec use different port numbers.

Re: XBMC on Raspberry without OpenELEC?

Once you open the port with port forwarding on the router it should stay open until you close it. My port forwarding always persists even through boots. You should only have to set the rules once.

Your router may also have a remote administration option.
