    - BT pairing on the zero also is much faster and playback is more in sync
    - the main RPi with LCD has some hiccups and rebooting doesn't influence LMS/playback anymore

    The only thing is that I have some issues with file permissions and I'm not a Linux expert at all.
    - I cannot save playlists from squeezer or the LMS web UI
    - syncing the music folder with Syncback or Robocopy from my desktop towards the SMB share works but Robocopy prompts as if the files are new, even if they already exist.

    My setup is a Proxmox server with a LXC which runs Debian Buster, Samba and LMS.
    The share is on a bindmounted host HD.

    Any progress ?

    I have been running LMS on a Proxmox Ubuntu 16.04 VM with zero permissions issues ... I do not have SAMBA running...please let us know your resolution to this ..

    You don't need a new group for that, you already have the samba user's group to work with (which should be owning 0_Playlists). See post #4

    afaik I've explained it once in post #4:
