Are there any step by step tutorials out there for getting the Pi/HDD setup with LMS and running with the Transporter?

    What will be the method of connection for the Pi/HDD to the Transporter?
    1. The rPi running LMS connects to your network (can be sitting next to your router connected via ethernet).
    2. The Transporter connects to your router (via ethernet or WIFI).
    3. Then you can control LMS via the front of the transporter, from any computer on your network, from any smart phone or pad (iphone or ipad, for example) on your network.

    Regarding setting up rPi to run LMS, see these instructions (Note the tabs at the top, "getting started", "how to", "LMS", etc. Click on each of these to get more info.

    piCorePlayer is an operating system specifically for squeezeboxes, download it, burn it to an SD card, insert it into your Pi, with an ethernet cable attached to your router, apply power, then come back here.

    I followed the How To section on piCorePlayer
    This is how far I've made it. This is what the RaspberryPi shows when I start it. Not sure where to go from here?

    When I bring up LMS there is no player found on my PC. I have Windows Defender turned off as well.

    Try restarting your Transporter (or other Squeezebox Player) so that it detects the new LMS on the LAN.


    Separate issue ... I did not see a mention of your external drive in the pCP startup sequence.
    Is it plugged into a Pi USB socket?
    If it is then perhaps (and quite likely) it needs its own power supply.

    I was able to get it to detect the Transporter and Pi after restart.
    In the screenshot you observed no HDD. I didn't have it connected then.
    After connecting the HDD to the Pi( it's USB powered), I'm not able to access the HDD for music files.
    I've enclosed a new screenshot now that I have the HDD connected. Do you see it listed now?

    It may be as well to start a new post in one of the piCorePlayer threads https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...rePlayer-4-0-0 where the pCP devs hang out.

    No, I didn't do that. I saw that section, but the Samba made me think it was some specialized software that didn't apply for my needs.

    I went through the steps for that and the HDD is now recognized.

    Everything seems to be working now. Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and assistance.
