    The last point is right. I suspect SqueezePlayer reports what it can handle but it doesn't do any own processing and whether it successfully plays depends on the capabilities of the Android device which vary much more than under iOS....

    So hirez dowloads to consumers do contain over 20kHz . Worst case they contain unfiltered DSD noise as the original might have been DSD ,that you *really* want to filter out
    (sigh) understood - that's why I'm not an audiophile, I guess
    I do understand that recording in very high resolution is necessary for a myriad of reasons , this is not the same topic as playback I constanly say this as this is always confused . (now thats done )

    But i agree that not hearing them is the worst option , you really want the music .

    On topic should not even the software players report back properly to LMS about their capability so LMS can downsample automatically . If you have to write you own convert conf's something seem broken to me ?? So bug report to the author of such player seems the next step
    The LMS protocol lets you (at registration) specify a capability list that includes the maximum supported sample rate. Based on that, LMS does downsampling, I think. What is still missing is the possibility to declare the supported sample depth. Hence in my UPnPBridge plugin I still have to mess with sample size in case the player does not support 24 bits

    Aha got that ,there are so many of android devices of varying quality and provenance . Maybe there is no reasonable way to query the hardware about it either , for squeezeplayer .

    And to have a manual setting in the app , you get a support issue as it's going to be misunderstood .....

    Hmm.... doesn't seem that easy.

    Now I'm thinking of creating a playlist with songs up to 24/44,1 which I will use with SqueezePlayer.

    So you didn't get the custom-convert.conf to work?

    Backyard deck system

    Haven't tried that yet, Julf.
    Reasons:
    (i) i'm not so familiar in Linux (and i guess i need to ssh in that file, or?). But i will check this if
    (ii) downsampling won't take place once i choose the Touch.
    But from pippin's post above i understood that it will be downsampled as well with the Touch as player. Or was his post not a respond to my question? Maybe i misunderstood something ?!

    Yes, you can prepare and edit it on another system, but in the end you have to get into the right place, so a brief ssh session is needed.

    If the config is based on mac addresses, it only affects those specific players, so you can leave the Touch unaffected.

    OK..that sounds great, Julf.
    Now my questions regarding the code for the conv file Apesbrain has mentioned:

    	# FT:{START=--skip=%t}U:{END=--until=%v}
    	[flac] -dcs $START$ $END$ -- $FILE$ | [sox] -q -t wav - -t flac -C 0 -b 16 -r 44.1k -
    Where 00:00:00:00:00:00 is the MAC address of your tablet.

    This file goes on your server in same folder as "convert.conf". Restart.
    Is that enough or do I need to insert some other rows in that conv file (besides my SqueezePlayer┤s MAC address)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks Julf.

    Now another hurdle ;-)

    I can┤t log in via putty to the LMS. I tried it with the IP address and port 9000 but that doesn┤t work. Putty shuts down.

    Isn┤t that how it should work? Once i would be connected login as "root" and PW "1234", or?

    Sorry for the noob questions ;-)
