  • I wrote out a long response and realized I was going down a rabbit hole with many branch tunnels. So I decided to take a step back.

    It seems like your problem is either data or processor bandwidth. Can you provide a little more detail on what processor/software is acting as your video server?...

    replied to Laptop and Touch
    I am confused but curious about this. zoleprole - to clarify, you have a laptop running LMS and squeezelite. You also have a PC with a library (assume internal HDD). You have a touch with a USB HDD plugged into the touch. Is this correct so far?

    So, when you had your problem, squeezelite...

    replied to LMS with HI-end Streamer+Dac
    If you don't mind me saying...Since you are looking for a DAC in that price range, and you are happy with LMS as your environment, why not just focus on spending all of the $ specifically on a DAC only? I think that's where you started before you discovered the combo units.

    I am sure the...

    replied to LMS Compatibility issue
    For picoreplayer (what I used for a LMS server) you can start here: https://www.picoreplayer.org/ to see what it is, then go to menu->help, then to Getting Started and How To. You don't have to be technical or software savy, just follow directions and come back here if you get stuck.

  • Disclaimers - I can't speak from experience, and I am no windows expert, but since you are going for windows 8 to 11, I thought I would mention that one of the updates to windows 10 introduced a new set of group access control/permissions that have caused a few issues with some. For example, I am logged...

    replied to Back to default LMS skin
    This discussion sparked a thought...I also use material for playing music, but prefer the default (classic) UI for settings. It's just easier for me to use tabs and lists, or maybe many years of using it is ingrained in my brain.

    I just open another browser tab, but I thought there was...

  • I have had to rebuild pcp and LMS a few times in the past. I also maintain 2 systems that I keep identical, but they are 250 miles away. I (as many do) use Samba to be able to create my mounted pcp drives as a network location. I regularly backup favorites.opml to my PC for this reason. Yes, you...

    started a topic SB Radio Disassembly

    SB Radio Disassembly

    This may have been posted before, not sure. When cruising around you tube, this video came up as a suggestion. I know that many members have taken their radios apart, but sometimes a video helps. Make sure you read the first comment, where the proper face panel removal technique (slide right to left)...

  • This is a good suggestion for a first step. First validate that the pcp is alive, and then, if it gets stuck, identify what it gets stuck on. As slartibartfast reminded in another thread, you will need a micro HDMI adaptor for a pi 4.

    sgmlaw , real clever idea with the zip locks. I wonder how one of those vacuum sealers might work, and trim the excess?

    Gary, now your take makes sense! I am not an apple guy, so perhaps in app purchases are handled differently than with android. I just know when I download a free app and it says "In app purchase" I think, "yea whatever..." because it never comes up. Maybe though, it's because I usually...

  • Generous offer from sodface, but if you still want to pursue pcp, to just add to what RobbH mentioned, just follow the two how to links, yes you will be building a player, but eventually you will be given the opportunity to add LMS. You can then turn off the player (as I do) for LMS Server only

    Right. I think I tried to indicate that the "In app purchase" does not mean you have to buy for the (in your case) end point to work. In your description, it seems like you are saying "I didn't buy anything and it just wors". IMO, the In App Purchase (opportunity to purchase) comes...

    To the best of my knowledge, when an app is declared to "contain in app purchases" it just means the opportunity to purchase (where the developer will get a tiny cut of the purchase), it does not mean you have to make a purchase before using the app.

    Again, this is the best of...

    When you do buy one in a dark alley from the shady looking guy with the trench coat, start here https://docs.picoreplayer.org/getting-started/ and come back with any questions.

    replied to What are you listening to right now ?
    The Pro-jets are similar to the Rega. Both in that <$400USD "low end audiophile quality" (10 years ago.). I think I remember choosing between them. Both upgradable to an extent (platter, cartridge's, mat, etc). Mine is a screaming red color. Might be why I chose it

    They do in many si fi shows. Those cheap USB hand held microscopes work quite well**. I find I have small hand magnifiers in just about every room. I always wondered why the print on prescription bottles is so small, because as you age, you get more of them

  • Thanks Wayne,
    I mostly understand your explanation, but rather than try to clarify details, maybe you can answer one question and explain what would happen in a couple of scenarios, as SmrtJustin and my situation differ:
