    SqueezeCenter 7 on QNAP

    Many users are now running SC7 on their QNAP's, thank's to the great support of this comunity!
    Also, it now looks as if QNAP themselves will be providing SC7 as a part of the standard firmware install:

    "QNAPAndy:
    Guy, you won the battle. We've just confirmed that QNAP will make Squeeze Center 7 pre-installed in the standard firmware in our
    next release in a week or two, stay tuned. (Note, that users who don't need this feature has an option to uninstall it
    as well)
    More goodies...
    AlienBBC will be included as well, however it's still experimental and will not run as smooth in TS-109/209 than in TS-409
    (provided the FPU support)
    Also, we will implement mr_hyde's 'Adding an USB memeory stick for swap memeory to prevent hard disk waking up issue from
    standby. Thanks man!

    Qnap themselves have a project underway to provide a Qnap Version of SC7
    You can follow their progress on the below qnap forum.

    http://forum.qnap.com/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=1197

    The more of us that post requests for SC7 the better.

    Isn't this "ProgressiveAV" package just a Debian chroot? If so, you'd "just" have to get "inside" and update it using standard Debian tools (apt-get update; apt-get upgrade)..

    But I don't know the Qnap boxes (yet).. it might be a bit more complicated..

    Hi flip,

    i don't think that apt-get works with the actual config. It seems to me that one could use the .tar.gz and had to modify the install script that is available for the 6.5.4 update. Then also the startupscript had to be modified and probably some missing perl modules had to be build (which should be possible since gcc works fine). Up to now i have not tried since my system works quite stable and i have not the time to reinstall everything ic some case ....

    Nevertheless i've tried some things with apt-get and USBswap, since this port is not as comfortable as yours for Synology. The swap function works reliable and actually i am working on a tool which allows you to configure it via ssh, but with the dialog tool. So it is not as comfortable as via web interface, but still ok.

    Another thing: how did you managed to compile lame for the DS107+ ... since these devices seems to have the same processor without FPU. I am able to compile lame, but than it has the same functionality as the progressive lame which means that it is not able to encode streams. I have not find a switch to compile it for fixed point (the same is true for mplayer: rstp works (fixed point patch), but wma not).
    2 x Squeezebox 3 - 1 x Squeezebox Touch - SSOTS 4.14 - Squeezecenter 7.7.3 - QNAP TS439 Pro (3.6.3) - 4 x 500 GB Hitachi (RAID5)

    Did you try? If it's really a complete chroot, it should work.

    I didn't do anything special. I guess, it'll either use fixed point code or it uses FP emulation. I don't know.. ELDK's toolchain seems to be very well chosen/configured so that things usually just work (configure && make && make install). See http://oinkzwurgl.org/ssods_eldk_compilation for a few details on how I compiled different components. There are no notes regarding lame, so it probably just worked.

    And, AFAIK, the Marvell CPU do have a FPU. Or sort of. However, I never managed to compile anything to use it. I think that my programmes all use emulation. Perhaps that's why SSODS is a bit slower on the Marvell than on the ppc (e.g. generating thumbnails for Squeezecenter is faster on a CS-406 than on a DS-107+).

    Thumbs up Up and running on TS-109

    Thanks flipflip - up and running for me with no problems with your instructions other than having to re-add the .gz at the end of the SC7 perl download filename (I used IE7 which i think sometimes strips it off)

    I haven't fully tested everything yet but all the basics certainly work ok. It runs on port 9000 - so anyone with Twonky running (not me) should watch out for that as it also uses that port on Qnap. ( the progreesive 6.5.x was on 9001 for this reason)

    My only issue is I have tried and failed to add the AlienBBC v2 plugin - It picks it up as installed on the plugins tab of the web interface - but the SB's dont see it and 'settings' on the web interface says "404 Not Found: settings/plugins/Alien/settings/basic.html"

    If anyone has any ideas on that it would be much appreciated.

    Once again thanks for your work on this - great job.

    Rich

    There's a new version which should fix a couple of issues found so far (port 9001, not there anymore after reboot, ...).

    Regarding AlienBBC. I don't know... it should work (if installed correctly..). Are the files there, i.e. /volume1/SqueezeCenter/.../Plugins/.../settings/plugins/Alien/settings/basic.html"
    ? Did you follow the special instructions in ssods.pdf and/or here in the forum for AlienBBC (or in general mplayer) on SSODS (look for mplayer-stdout)?

    Mr_Hyde has successfully tested a few Plugins. I don't know which. Maybe he can help.

    AlienBBC

    flipfip - Thanks for the pointer - i now have the plugin displaying - I was fooled by the fact there is no Plugins directory in the SqueezeCenter folder but there is a Plugin folder in the Slim folder - I put it in there which I now find is only for distributed plugins - Once the proper location is created and used :-) it works ok interface wise but..

    - Sadly with this obstacle overcome Theres still no Audio from it so now onto your pdf about the mplayer conversion rules - sadly have to go to work now so will have to play with that later.

    btw: is it necessary to uninstall completely before upgrading beta6 to your beta7? Theres an upgrade option in the SSODS pages but that implies its only for SC perl source upgrades?

    Thanks
    Rich
