One question - when the player is turned on and off, is there a way to trigger a discrete output so a connected amp can be turned on and off as well (through approprite relays of course).
Looking at a distributed multiroom setup with the amp and Pi in each audio zone. I want the amp to trun on automatically when the player is turned on.
Code: Select all
mount cifs //192.168.0.x/public /mnt/public -o user=myusername,password=mypassword,nounix,sec=ntlmssp,noperm,rw

What are you using on the Roku to play the files? Roku is rubbish as it has a limited set of video codecs ... try using Chaneru2 to see and play the files.
