    Hi, I installed PCP 3.21 on sd-card for my Pi Zero-W and do not get a network connection. I am using a USB hub with integrated fast ethernet port - the network chip is a Realtek RTL8152B.

    Since I did not found the Pi on my network I attached it to a monitor. PCP waited for a network connection which was finally not found and then it got stuck while trying to update the time.

    Here I found a similar problem - a file net-usb-4.9.22-piCore.tcz should somehow be integrated, but I am an total Linux-noob... Could anyone please help with this issue. Many thanks

    Net-USB-kernel modules are included. But not loaded.

    Hook up a keyboard and monitor.

    When you get to a command prompt. Type.

    Code:
    ce 
    echo "net-usb-KERNEL.tcz" >> onboot.lst
    pcp rb

    Is is possible to have a static IP address for a wireless pCP LMS?

    Typically, this is done by reserving a specific IP for that device's MAC address via a setting in your router.

    There is no way currently to set a static wifi on the device. Use the DHCP reservation table in your router to assign constant addresses.

    Be cautious using wifi on your LMS.

    It means there will probably be a double wireless hop during playback.

    I recommend hardwiring (Ethernet) your LMS into your wireless router.

    What's a "double wireless hop"?

    Edit: Is that a "hop" to the router and a "hop" top the player?

    So far, playback sounds great.
    The pCP is being used at a vacation home with 256 AAC files (the FLAC are for Home).

    Slow LMS response using current version of Shairtunes2W plugin

    I posted this question in the Shairtunes2W thread but was wondering if anyone ran in to this problem:

    Just curious if anyone else using a Picoreplayer based LMS on a Raspberry Pi3 sees a significant lag in response with the ShareTunes2W plugin enabled. My LMS would sometimes take up to a minute or more to respond to command requests (ie playing Pandora stations or playing local files). Sometimes the music would stop playing and resume a minute or two later.

    I only use Shairtunes2W and the Youtube plugins from the third party options and removing the Shairtunes2W plugin restores my LMS to it's usual responsive self. Pandora songs now finish before moving to the next song (before they would sometimes not finish and jump to the next song) and I can quickly access and play my local NAS served collection. I don't think this was an issue on the older versions of the plugin from a few months ago.

    FYI, the plugin itself would usually function to stream from an Iphone (I used it for SiriusXM), however, it also would sometimes suffer from the same lag and would frequently stop altogether requiring restarting the airplay stream from the Iphone. When these lags would occur, access to LMS via the Web Browser or OrangeSqueeze in Android could take up to a minute or more.
