    Auto start favorite

    Hello,

    For some time I've been running vers. 5 on my PiCoreplayer with LMS, Samba, Jivelite, local 3.5" TFT and internal hard disk. RaspPi 2B+.
    Works flawlessly. On PcP 4.1 I has set Auto Start Favorite to a local Danish radio channel, and the radio started playing music after boot. In 5.0 it doesn't.
    Perhaps because 2B+ is to too slow when booting?
    It finds the radio channel just fine, but it set at Stop. So I need to touch Play to get music going.
    Any ideas what causes this? Bug in 5.0?

    Thanks Jan

    I have tested on a rpi2b with LMS and Squuezelite.

    piCorePlayer v4.1.2 took 40 secs to start playing.

    I uperformed an insitu up grade to v5.0.0 and it did not work

    Applied the HOTFIX to piCorePlayer v5.0.1and it's working again.

    It worked :-)

    Thanks guys,

    The hotfix did it.
    After reboot my favorite station began to play immediately.
    You made my day :-)

    By the way I run 5.0.1. I forgot that.

    Cheers
