    How to save LMS name ?

    Hi,

    With Pcp and LMS on Pi I changed the player name here:

    Backup on Pcp main page.

    But after a restart the player name is again piCorePlayer.

    How to store it ?

    Thanks

    Try changing it in pCP itself - rather than LMS.

    pCP Web interface/Squeezelite/Name of your player

      Did you click on [Apply] ?

      As per Mr Webster, one can change it Squeezelite tab settings and I also change it in the Tweaks tab settings

        Within pCP don't forget to backup the change before rebooting. See the Main Page, under Additional Functions.

        I remember reading somewhere that pCP setting changes are not saved unless you back-up the settings.

          pCP will override what is in LMS. Change it on the pCP interface. On the Squeezelite page.

          The setting on the Tweaks page is to change the linux Hostname of the device, which has nothing to do with squeezelite/lms.

                Off topic slightly
                If I look on MySB.com at my "players" it seems I have over 20 odd instances of piCorePlayer ! Obviously I have renamed them all but the name seems to hang around forever - not that it really matters.
                An improvement in this area would be for the default Squeezelite instance on a new pCP to be based on the device's Mac Address in some way - again not that it really matters if you have some experience of the ecosystem. Just a thought.

                  I don't mean to side track this thread, but I thought this too (need to backup changes). I was about to suggest this to another user, but checked and read this under backup's "more":

                  This will do a piCore backup to your SD card.

                  piCorePlayer does a backup after it changes any setting, so this option is really just for "peace of mind" before doing a shutdown or reboot.

                  I think this change somewhere along the version trail?

                    piCorePlayer will always do a backup if you use one of it's interfaces. The [Save] button usually does a backup at the end of processing.

                    If you do things manually from the Linux cli, then you need to remember to do a backup because you are bypassing pCP.
