    It will use more space during a scan. I would probably move the one cache over to the usb3 drive.

    Just wondering...

    Is there any way to make the HDD that's attached to the Pi visible on the network?

    i.e. when using a NAS as the LMS server, I can easily add new music to it wirelessly across the network.

    Is there any way to do that using PCP?

    Otherwise I'd need some form of direct connection to the HDD in order to add new music.

    Indeed that is fast at 2K songs per minute it is twice as fast as my initial test;
    6K songs on local usb3 disk @ 6 minutes => 1K songs a minute

    But are we really using the all the new pi its potential ?
    I just screwed up the SD as it had only a 200 MB partition, and had the LMS cache still pointing at /mnt/mmcblk0p2/somewhere while doing the first scan. It ran out of data, prevented any orderly shutdown, and finally did only boot tinycore without PCP sauce.
    With perhaps 3 gig ram spare it could have prevented the diskspace to run out , and come up with some alternative like a reasonable message.

    BT output on PCP 6.00 B1

    I've got it working too. And old issue bit me in the xxx again;

    You can not switch audio outputs reliably while you have the alsa equalizer installed.
    Best to uninstall the equalizer , reboot, set analogue, reboot, test output, and then move on with another output.

    Edit: and apparently adding the equalizer to a working BT setup does not work . ( bug-report ? )

    I will investigate in the coming week, and see how such could be done.

    Greg - is there a file somewhere with the stored temperature data? I'd like to visualise the data over a longer period than the 20-minute chunks of the pCP graph.

    EDIT: Found it - /var/log/pcp_cpu_temp.log

    hi chill,

    We are gradually moving all log files to /var/log

    [Main Page] > [Diagnostics] > [Logs] displays the log files. The log page actually collects some logs that aren't in /var/log and also generates a few logs itself.

    regards
    Greg
