    Local disk

    Sorry to resurrect an old thread

    I guess I came to the same conclusion as the OP when looking at the documentation that a picoreplayer LMS service should be able to play media held on local storage. I realize that the LMS won't be able to write to the boot media because its write protected but theres no reason that the device holding the media shouldn't be able to hold the index and play lists.

    Then again, perhaps I've got hold of the wrong end of the stick.

    I like picoreplayer because the boot device is rarely written to; I almost never have to deal with corrupt media. My guess is max2play should be installed on a USB stick or HDD with the boot config file on the SD card modified to boot the USB image.


    Merry Christmas

    The latest version of piCorePlayer can optionally install LMS as a server on the RPi. Attach a powered USB drive for media storage. That's all you need. Of course, unless your RPi has a display you'll also need it to be on your network so you can control it remotely. Use the RPi analog or HDMI output or add a SPDIF or DAC HAT board.
