  • It sounds like you are running a 2.5” drive. I have not used laptop scale HDDs in over a decade (since SSDs became affordable). But their power efficiency may be high enough to still pull it off on these low powered usb supplies. In your case, they certainly are.

    For 1-5TB storage,...

    replied to LMS Compatibility issue
    Just my opinion, but I think maintaining LMS on a NAS nowadays is not unlike patching a constantly leaking boat. A never-ending chore, as the NAS OSes continue to evolve further and further away from any support for these old apps. And as LMS continues to develop into the future, the incompatibility...

  • As has been stated, a Pi running piCore configured for LMS is the easy solution here. Unless you must have it wirelessly elsewhere, the most efficient and trouble free setup is to ethernet the Pi right to your router.

    The only issue for a larger library drive is that the Pi does not have...

    With the knowledge and tech improvements of the intervening years, one can get very creative about keeping this venerable old platform up and running well today, and having it do things it may not have even been intended for.

    We still have 10 SB clients in operation here, from Radios to...

    Except this is the Touch sub-forum, and that’s what the OP was talking about. Yes, a remote is needed on a Classic to set one up.

    For an illuminated SB remote, you can press any button to light it up. Tapping the bottom left button in the dark (now playing) wakes the illumination, and...

    And besides the above tips, if you can get your hand to a Touch … all you have to do is touch it to operate it. It really does have a touchscreen interface.

    I’ve often done that when in a hurry and nothing to control one is in my hand. As long as it’s not buried out of easy reach,...

    You’re most welcome.

    The other tip if you’re looking for replacement remotes (besides the fact that all SB remotes, even the tiny Radio one, operate all the models) is to go with the SB3/Classic remote over the Touch one. The former is 99% functionally equivalent on the Touch, uses...

    replied to Original Remote Replacement
    Back when P&G bought Duracell, and immediately cut their quality, I lost three remotes to leakage after just a couple years service, two of which were touch remotes.

    The lesson learned is to spend the little bit extra, and just use a lithium battery in a remote, whenever available....

    replied to Adding a DAC to Transporter
    I don’t think on a higher caliber downstream instrument it is going to make much difference whether you feed it a balanced or coaxial S/PDIF connection from the TP.

    I use an AES cable with my setup, as the D2D-1 reconstructs and reclocks the bitstream to under 2ps jitter no matter the...

  • This is the way. A Pi is smaller than a pack of cigarettes ... or the walwart supplies of many routers.

    On an economy install with modest libraries and client loads, I just tie it into the router with a 1' ethernet cable. It can manage any shared network volume from there.

  • Some other helpful tips, as reading through this thread, it appears the OP has completely changed out the router twice so far. And this may impact both the server and SB client machines:

    Once the LMS server machine has been correctly addressed and is functioning on the network (ideally...

  • Not knowing your level of proficiency, here is a very basic guide to setting up a quick peer-to-peer. It is not as daunting as it looks, and an experienced hand can set one up in about 2 minutes:

    On Windows 10, you can connect two computers together with an Ethernet cable, and here are two ways to complete the process.

  • And the worst case with these Pi LMS machines is that you do a complete device reset, and start over with a fresh piCore install. It doesn't take that long, and often takes less time than unbuggering a corrupted piCore install.

    If all else fails, try that....

  • I encounter this routinely with fixed ip resources on a new router with a completely different DHCP range. Provider-specific routers are notorious for this, and break the traditional 192.168.1.xxx ranging. FWIW, even the newest Xfinity routers now use non-traditional DHCP ranges, so dumping the...
