    Logical Volume Management

    Whilst commissioning my recent RasPi4 pCP v6 setup, I realised that I need to increase my HDD capacity to make it future proof (famous last words!). The most cost- effective way to do this, whilst maintaining maximum flexibility, would be to use Logical Volume Management. I use Stablebit Drivepool on Win10 systems with very satisfactory results but I have no experience of LVM on Linux.

    Can LVM be used in the pCP ecosystem with USB attached HDDs? Does anyone have any experience or tips on its implementation and use?

    Any help or pointers would be most welcome.

    Thanks in advance

    Chip

    Time is an interesting factor here. Today I tried my GPT partitioned drive with a hfs+ filesystem and it was mounted instantly and also reading the musicfiles ist really fast. I don't know why it didn't worked a few days ago, I changed nothing in the configuration, it was only switched of a longer time.

    Very strange! But it is great that GPT partitionformat works again!

    Hi Chip

    I loaded the piCorePlayer web interface and on the MAIN page I checked EXTENSIONS. I then changed from the Information tab to the tab named Available. Here you can see what packages are available.

    The package for LVM is not available in the piCorePlayer repository, nor did I find it in the piCore repo. Therefore my best tip is to check the tinyCore forum, but be warned this probably requires some Linux knowledge to incorporate. I found this:

    Best regards,

    I believe pCP and "maximum flexibility" don't go together. If you want
    maximum flexibility, then use something else.

    I'm pretty sure we violated KISS a long time ago with pCP. lol

    But yes, pCP is designed to be lightweight. The RPi hardware itself is really not flexible for mass storage.

    Future support for Mutec MC3+ USB?

    Hi I just bought a Mutec MC3+ USB.

    It is a XMOS based device/digital interface that converts, reclocks.

    I got it to work with older PiCorPlayer software 3.5.0 on a 3B-pi with output setting: [ iec958:CARD=M20,DEV=0 ]. I haven't got it to work with pi 3B+ (5.0.1) or on pi 4B+ (6.0.0-b7)

    I am using Beta mode on all. Is there a known, working output setting in the newer software releases, or do You have plans to add these?

    Finally a million thanks for Your hard work with this excellent player.

    Feedback with RPi 4 1 Gb and Allo Digione card

    Hi everyone,

    First, I would like to aknowledge the developers for this wonderful OS that is piCorePlayer.

    I just have bought a RPi 4 1 Gb to work with my Allo digione card and it works like a charm with the pCP 6.0 beta 7. I'm coming from a RPi 3B and I wanted to make my audio server runs smoothly and RPi 4 is really improving the reactivity.

    Just my two cents.

    Have a nice day all

    All usb dacs are a crap shoot with rpi devices. You might need to try different settings on the usb part of the Tweaks page.

    If you note here the settings that worked here then it might help someone else later.
