Hi all,

Some noobish beginners questions. I am using LMS on synology to play to Max2play squeezelite player on Raspberry Pi. I control with Android phone.

My first question is about radio stations. How can I save a station? Do I really have to use a Tunein account?

Second question about cover art. It seems the server resizes images to I guess 500x500. Can I prevent this, I want to see the original files. I know I can set things up with like /cover_S_1000x1000 (or something like that) but where do I put this. Can someone guide me in this?

I don't know what app you're using to control the player. But you should
be able to add any station to your LMS favorites from its context menu.
Now you only have to figure out how you get to that menu on your app :-).

The server resizes to whatever the client is asking for. I don't know
what UI you're referring to. But if you app is requesting cover of this
size, then LMS will send it. If the app doesn't specify any size, then
the server will return whatever is the original size.

Hi Michael, thank you very much for your answers! I am currently using Squeezer (free android app) and there it displays the image in low(er) quality. I see this clearly on lockscreen where the cover art is shown while zoomed in.

About radio stations, in LMS, when I click on favorite I believe it asks for Tunein account. I will check again.
