    RPi 4 set up problem

    Hello all-

    I have been unsuccessful at trying a RPi4 this afternoon.
    I have done it before with a Allo DigiOne Signature. I burnt piCorePlayer into a memory card, plugged into ethernet, and the player was recognized and played (I used the 3.5mm jack output to check).
    Then I received a new Rpi4 so took the memory card out of the Allo and put it into the new RPi. Plug ethernet, power - same spot as the Allo, same ethetnet etc.. The player is instantly picked up and I see it on the web interface - so far so good.
    I went to settings to make the volume variable.
    But I cannot play anything. It is as if the player is stuck, no streaming.
    Any ideas folks?
    Thank you in advance!

    Did you select the Allo Digi on the squeezelite page, then reboot.?

    Not sure I understand the question... I did not do anything of the kind - not sure what the squeezelite page is TBH.
    I simply took the little flash card (with PiCorePlayer imaged on it) out of the Allo, slided it into the new RPi, and turned the RPi on.
    It got recognized by the server, and I can see it on the web interface, but it cannot play anything.
    I tried mp3 and FLAC to no avail...

    If you have a spare card it might be better to make a fresh image (or make a backup of the card you are using and then make a fresh image)
