    Anyone here still using Asustor NAS to run LMS?

    Hi folks,

    Seeing as the Asustor LMS forum is pretty quiet, I wanted to check and see if anyone following here uses an Asustor NAS?

    While the updated 7.9.1 LMS package works great, I'm stumped getting the new spotify Spotty plug-in up and running (http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...586#post888586). Would love to hear if anyone else has succeeded.

    Cheers,

    David

    Without details of the Processor in the Asustor I think you will struggle to get a definitive answer but I would say it is unlikely that it will support Spotty.

    All is not lost though.

    Get a Pi3, install piCorePlayer, add LMS (& Spotty), point LMS at the files on your NAS.
    Apart from burning the SD card, it can all be done via a web browser.
    When all is working switch off LMS on the Asustor.

    Install piCoreplayer
    Connect to it via browser
    Switch to "beta"
    Give the Pi a static Ip address
    Reboot
    Re-connect via browser (new IP)
    Go to LMS tab on piCorePlayer
    Download the additional file tools
    Mount the music drive of your NAS
    Download LMS
    Configure LMS - your files should be visible via the browse button
    Add Spotty etc
    Switch a player to the new LMS
    VB2.4 storage QNAP TS419p (NFS)
    Living Room Joggler & Pi4/Khadas -> Onkyo TXNR686 -> Celestion F20s
    Office Joggler & Pi3 -> Denon RCD N8 -> Celestion F10s
    Dining Room SB Boom
    Kitchen UE Radio (upgraded to SB Radio)
    Bedroom (Bedside) Pi Zero+DAC ->ToppingTP21 ->AKG Headphones
    Bedroom (TV) & Bathroom SB Touch ->Denon AVR ->Mordaunt Short M10s + Kef ceiling speakers
    Guest Room Joggler > Topping Amp -> Wharfedale Modus Cubes
    Everything controlled by iPeng & Material on iOS

    Thanks for weighing in d6jg & kidstypike! I realize Pi3 is the way most folks are going these days, but I'm trying to avoid getting another single-use appliance (especially when my brand news nas, bought in part specifically for LMS, should be able to run it... or so I thought).

    Speaking of the Asustor... to answer your question, the cpu is an Intel Celeron 1.6GHz Dual-Core N3050 (so i686-linux). FWIW, LMS indicates the version of Pearl as 5.10.0. It seems I should be able to install the required pearl module using Entware-ng (https://forum.asustor.com/viewtopic....p=28780#p28780) but until I do some more research and reading, implementing this is beyond my current linux skillset.

    A question, slightly OT

    Hi

    I'm running LMS 7.8.1 on my AS202TE and while that works just fine, I would like to upgrade to one of the 7.9 builds. When atteppting at that (following the same procedure as when I successfully upgraded from the beta version supported by Asustor), I receive the following message "Error: cannot determine what we just extracted". I guess I'm doing something wrong, but can't figure out what. Any suggestions?

    I am running LMS on my Asustor AS5002T and until I moved house had no problems - even managed to update the LMS on it. However have just moved home and while I can access the music fine, the internet radio has become dead. I get Endpoint not connected... Any ideas? Thanks and please bear in mind I am not that savvy and easily confused when asked to check DNS etc....lol

    Perhaps changing the filename?
