Re: [Resolved] Pi 4 won‘t boot anymore after bootloader firmware upgrade

Here's a hint for you (and anyone else) adding fstab entires for USB connected drives: always include "nofail" in your mount options. That way the system will continue to boot if the device isn't present. Thanks, that‘s exactly what I did today after I read about this option. The second thing I did...

Re: Pi 4 won‘t boot anymore after bootloader firmware upgrade

:arrow: I fixed the issue! :o After searching this forum for hours I found a hint that the emergency mode might be related to invalid entries in /etc/fstab. I remembered that I once used an external SSD for backups and therefore edited the fstab in order to mount it on system startup. Back then I fo...

Re: Pi 4 won‘t boot anymore after bootloader firmware upgrade

I bought a micro-HDMI cable and the boot screen looks like this. You are in emergency mode. After logging in, type ... Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked. See sulogin(8) man page for more details. Press ENTER to continue. If I press ENTER then it says "Reloading system manager...

[Resolved] Pi 4 won‘t boot anymore after bootloader firmware upgrade

I updated the bootloader firmware of my Pi 4b according to this tutorial . It was still on 13701 (May 10, 2019) and the update showed version 137ab (Sep 10, 2019). After „sudo reboot“ the Pi didn‘t boot anymore. :cry: The bootloader seems fine, I even did the recovery method and the green LEDs blink...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Thanks, now I understood it somehow. :) I successfully displayed title, album and artist via metadata pipe in forked-daapd. But I had no success with the album art (cover). I tried to add it to the xml as well with type "ssnc", code "PICT" and the data as base64 (cat cover.jpg | base64) but it won't...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Can anyone advise - I'm basically looking to use youtube-dl to download BBC Radio 4 PM every day, then stream that downloaded file using the AirPlay protocol to my old school Airport Express plugged into the back of my AudioEngine A5s. Is forked-daapd the missing link that will allow me to do this?...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I already figured out how to write the content of a radio stream to a named pipe and it works quite easy, forked-daapd plays it automatically: mkfifo /srv/music/outpipe ffmpeg -i http://SOME-URL/radio.mp3 -f s16le pipe:1 > /srv/music/outpipe Now the way harder part is the metadata. The documentation...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

OK, no prob, it was worth a try. ;) It would be great if you could add the possibility to read just the metadata from the pipe. But no hurry. Maybe I can already play around with the pipe feature in the meantime. Do you have an example of how the pipe.metadata content has to look like (format/syntax...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Ah, cool that you know and like Radio Paradise as well. 8-) Do you think it would be possible to add the correct metadata (album, artist, cover) for the Radio Paradise flac streams in forked-daapd? Background: Since a few months, Radio Paradise offers a static radio stream in flac for two different ...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

:arrow: First of all a big "Thank you" for this wonderful piece of software! I installed it without any problems on a Raspberry Pi 4 with the latest Raspbian (Buster). It detects all my AirPlay speakers (also older AirPlay 1 speakers like Sony SA-NS310!) and plays multiroom without interruptions! Do...
