    Migrating from LMS on RedyNas to LMS on PI(absolute beginner!!!)

    Hi!

    I think my ReadyNas is getting a little old, and LMS for it does have problems now.

    1 Can not upgrade to LMS 7.9.2
    2 Radio Paradise FLAC does not work
    3 Podcast does not work

    So I am thinking migrating LMS to a PI on a newer and better maintainded platform. It just has to run LMS and my ReadyNas as music storage.

    What do I need. I am NOT skilled Linux programmer, so I need a good guideline....

    Which PI should I go for. There are serval versions ??
    Operating system ??
    Interface to modify it???
    Can PI be modified to startup 5 minutes after The ReadyNas(Timer start/stop) ?

    I really love my SB system, so need a little help here...

    Pi3B will do nicely
    piCorePlayer as OS - plenty of assistance here via Linux/Unix pages
    You can do everything you need via a web interface
    Start Up delay - not sure but someone else will know.

    I run 7.9.2 on ReadyNAS 202 without any problem. But it's not straight forward to make it run.

    Agree. Very simple. I used a Pi3B+ and piCorePlayer. I'm not a linux person. I just carefully followed the instructions for installing piCorePlayer and LMS and once installed, all worked very easily. See:
    https://www.picoreplayer.org/
    Home: VBA 4TB (2.5)>LMS 7.9.2>Transporter, Touch, Boom, Radio (all ethernet)
    Cottage: VBA 3TB (2.4)>LMS 7.9.1>Touch>Benchmark DAC I, Boom, Radio w/Battery (ethernet, Radio WIFI)
    Office: Win10(64)>LMS 7.9.2>Squeezelite
    The Wild (no internet): PiCorePlayer 4.0 on rPi 3B+, hifiberry Dac+Pro, 4TB USB (LMS & Squeezelite)
    Controllers: iPhone6 & iPadAir2 (iPeng), CONTROLLER, or SqueezePlay 7.8 on Win10(64) laptop
    Files: ripping: dbpa > FLAC; post-rip: mp3tag, PerfectTunes; Streaming: Spotify

    The instructions there are good but are missing anything about mounting the files on your NAS. Nevertheless its fairly straightforward.

    I don't use trackstat, but it works fine with my library of about 112,000 tracks, mostly FLAC.

    good point. I have my files on a 4TB USB drive attached directly to the rPi3B+.

    It will be able to handle it without issues. If it's fast enough depends on your requirements and usage patterns. Generally, database performance (which is what trackstat, large playlists etc. need) is quite low on the Pi3 due to it's slow CPU.
    Personally, I've just upgraded from a Pi to a faster platform (Odroid HC-2) due to this (my collection, however, it larger than yours, which makes a difference)

    Various HowTos: build a self-contained LMS | Bluetooth/ALSA | Control LMS with any device | ...

    Well. Now got a pi3 up and running. It came with noobs installed on a micro sd card. I have downloaded pirocoreplayer and can see it in the downloads folder. How do I install it from there ??? If I double click it extracts and I see the PicorePlayer5.0.0.img file.

    How do I install it and afterward booting up on it ???
