Re: SqueezePlug Version 6 available

I don't know why, but the output from my 3.5mm analog has always been stutter free & reasonable sound quality ... My 3.5mm analog was fine on version 4 but not ok on version 6. There was no Spotify functionality with version 4. I can't imagine whether a cheap dac would be an improvement or not. I d...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 6 available

edit - seen you can get VERY cheap usb soundcards on ebay, anything from £1.50 upwards. Would these provide any improvement at all (if they work at all!) over the Pi's 3.5mm output? Yes. I've just had success with this Newlink cheap and cheerful DAC: http://cpc.farnell.com/newlink/usb021ka/interfac...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

..... trying to install Squeezelite on your Linux OS fills me with dread. Or can someone point me in the direction of some meaningful instructions. You must be easily frightened. :lol: You type 'setup' then follow the menus (cursor keys, Tab key, Enter key) and answer a few 'yes/no' questions. Simp...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

It depends ... I like 4 GB class 10 cards most. That's enough by far for the system but if you like to save music directly on the card, there is not much space left! I prefer to store the music on an extra HD, attached to the RPi! Thanks, Thomas. I see that Triode is working on a Squeezelite app wh...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

There is no update path from 4 to 5. Try to format the SD with this tool: https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/ . Burn the new image and first thing you should do then is to update SqueezePlug and then to expand the file system. Thanks Thomas, I think I will get hold of another SD card for ...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

Hi Thomas, I have tried updating my version 4 Squeezeplug (Raspberry Pi) but I get a "no patch available" error message. Do I have to reburn an SD card with the new version 5 image? (I have tried that but the current Squeezeplug card, 8GB, says that it has only 76MB free and won't allow me to Format...
