    Raspberry PI for LMS with networkstorage for PC and Mac?

    Much thanks ... this is not how I remember this working. I will explore it,
    because if confirmed, then no more rescans!

    I don't recall this behavior ... rescans were required to listen to any
    album. I'll be very happy if I've simply not paid close enough attention,
    or didn't wait long enough, for this to happen.

    Raspberry PI for LMS with networkstorage for PC and Mac?

    Confirmed!

    The test track does not appear in the New Music listing, but it does
    appear in Genre - All Albums.

    So glad I decided to post to this thread.

    Now I may have a Christmas Holiday project to resurrect my old RPi!

    Thanks all,

    Guy

    Any freshly ripped/modified files will.

    I would use some sort of ups when using a pi as lms server. Found out the hard way that the SD card can get corrupted on power failure.
    Btw, still looking for a solution to detect power outage and shutdown pi in a decent way before Ups runs out of juice.

    Server: LMS on Pi3 7.9.1. on PcP 3.21

    pCP keeps the OS in memory and does not read/write to the SD card after is loads. A power failure should not have corrupted the SD card Ś more likely you had a power surge.

    Also unless the media files are on a large microSD (not recommended), I would just keep a backup image of the SD Card and keep the Cache on the media drive (and not the SD Card).

    A mains voltage relay connected to the mains supply or a 5V relay connected to the "Charger"

    Use volt free contacts to trigger a GPIO pin

    Edwin is running a LMS server pCP DOES write to SD or HDD in this case

    Yes, writes to the HD. Should not be writing to the SD card.
    "piCorePlayer is built on a very small linux distro which is only about 12 MB, known as Tiny Core Linux ↗. A special thanks to bmarkus from the Tiny Core Linux forum ↗ for help building the piCore (a special version for the Raspberry Pi) and support. It boots very fast (often within 15 sec), and it is running entirely in RAM, therefore, you can simply pull the power without any risk of corruption of your SD card."

    I don't have a NAS, so my advice, while OK for an attached HD, was ill advised for a NAS, see:
