    Sure, if you just want to convert DSD to PCM is probably the way to go.

    I will try to fix the Audio::Scan version first, I have another thread opened for this here in the Forum.

    Then I will try again DSDplayer, but I read somewhere it doesn't support ARM cpus, and it seems C-3PO can do the same, and even more..?
    If this comes down to the modified SOX, I will try and compare both.

    Audioscan is used also by C-3PO, so it will not recognize DSD files with that old version.

    I understand you could not select DSDPLAY as the transcoder, but do you see DSF and DFF types in the Filetypes page? If so, you could try to use modified SOX directly from the custom-convert.conf file, if not C-3PO.

    Fortunately this problem is solved now.

    Today I re-compiled the latest sox version, I have DFF and DSF in File Types and also I can use DSDplayer to transcode Dsf to Flac.
    However, I still have issues with buffering drop outs. DSDplayer gives me very few options which do not solve this issue.

    I was not able yet to get C-3PO to do the job either. Maybe I should try to tweak the modified SOX directly from the custom-convert.conf file as you said...

    It's a little bit frustrating, as all this went with zero issues in MinimServer.

    At this point there should be no reason for C-3PO not to work, have you got some error message?

    Let me try again this week and have a look at plugin C-3PO and player.source logs. I looked in UPnP bridge streaming logs but nothing special there.

    C-3PO plugin, a trnscoding helper.

    You are right, itĺs working now, when I use dsf to compressed flac! Transcode to pcm produces white noise though. Will do further testing. Also have issues with Server Disconnects, but probably unrelated.
    I like how I can see the command line showing how sox is called in C-3PO.

    Remember that in order to play transcoded/resampled pcm you need squeezelite with R2 patch activated (Squeezelite-R2, Daphile or Ralphy squeezelite with -W option activated), no 'real' SB could.

    Ok. But what about the UPnP bridge plugin then?

    I think it's a Squeezelite derived, born well before I released the R2 patch, so Ithink is not compliant. You maybe could ask Philippe44 to refresh and include that patch.

    Hello.

    I tried installing C3PO to my LMS7.9.1 on my QNAP TS-469L (atom based) server. I also replaced the sox file in the relevant directory with either sox-dsd-linux-gnu-i386+alsa or sox-dsd-linux-gnu-i386 (renaming them to sox and changing permission to be consistent with the rest of the files in the directory).

    The reason for me wanting to install C3PO is that while my Sotm SMS-100 running squeezelite apparently can pass through DSD, my DAC can't decode them (up to 192 only), and I would like to transcode the occasional DSD files to 176 PCM.

    Checking into the settings page, it says under version: "Either not a valid version or can't run sox". On the file type page, only DSDplay is available as a choice for DSD files. Playing normal rez flac (which I've set to transcode to PCM before installing C3PO) doesn't seem to work, so I suppose I really have the wrong sox on. BTW, the Squeezelite on the SMS-100 is apparently not an R2 version and I have no idea if it is possible to fix.

    What am I missing? Thanks.
