    piCorePlayer4.1.0 with LMS 7.9.2 and DSDPlayer plugin

    Hi,

    I have just for the first time, setup a new Raspberry Pi3B+ with a fresh piCorePlayer 4.1.0 Installation. Installed LMS, scanned my Music and everything works just fine.

    I subsequently enabled the DSDPlayer plugin v1.0 to enable DSD over PCM in the same manner as I have another LMS 7.9.1 system running on Windows 10 with a Touch (with EDO) and SB3. This works just fine. However, on piCorePlayer LMS 7.9.2 I get the following message for the Touch player:

    dsdplayer does not currently include a version of dsdplay which supports your server. dsd playback has been disabled for this player.

    I assume I have missed something here, any ideas what please?

    Thanks in advance, a new forum member but long time Squeezebox user! :-)

    I don't think DSD Player is needed anymore, DSD should be trans-coded using sox now.

    You might need to adjust your trans coding options, I think most are using the C-3PO plugin to setup transcoding.

    Hi Paul,

    I don't wish to transcode anything. I use the digital output of the Touch with EDO installed to send DSD over PCM to my DAC, either Chord Hugo2 or Mojo. I do note though that the Soxr options for Touch are not shown on the piCorePlayer LMS 7.9.2 whereas they are Windows 10 LMS 7.9.1, altough i do not use them I only have DSD-over-PCM checked and this works fine playing DSD via the DACs.

    I did try and play DSD files to the Touch with LMS 7.9.2 but I get no music just silence.

    Thanks.

    If the player supports DSD or DOP, then your configuration should look like the below. Since piCorePlayer doesn't install the dsdplayer binary, only native dsd is supported.

    If you don't see this, then either the Touch doesn't support DSD, or there is a configuration issue on the Touch. Have you connected your Touch to your windows based LMS server, and noted all of the player settings, then move it to the new pCP based LMS, you may need to change player settings......as they don't transfer automatically.

    Hi Paul,

    The following are the Windows LMS 7.9.1 settings with the Touch:

    The following are the piCorePlayer LMS 7.9.2 settings with the Touch:

    As you can see the DSF/DFF FLAC options are greyed out on LMS 7.9.2.

    Note I did try setting the Squeezelite settings in piCorePlayer to try and send DSD output from USB to both my Chord Hugo2 and mojo DACs but got the same results is indicated above for DOP. Trying to output DSD natviely to the Hugo2 which does support native DSD without DOP resulted in no audio output either. Just to confirm I know that the Touch works with DOP out to the Hugo2 as this is currently how I use it with Windows LMS. The Hugo2 indicated DSD is being received. This works whetehr outputting DOP via digital coax out or USB on the Touch.

    Thanks

    Thanks.

    Okay, so you defiantly need a dsdplay binary.

    You can get it here. https://sourceforge.net/projects/lms...armv6hf.tar.gz

    Can you manage some shell commands?

    Sorry for the delay, but I went ahead and just made an extension.

    From the pCP Main Web Page, in Advanced mode, select the "Extension" button.

    When page loads, set the repository to "piCorePlayer repository". Then in the Available extensions drop down, select pcp-dsdplay.tcz, then press the "Load" button.


    Once this is loaded, you might want to restart LMS, and your DSD options should be what you expect to see.
