    Attachment 30544

    i've rescanned just playlists, and done a clear everything/rescan as well. cleared browser cache, and tried a different browser. no luck.

    any idea what might be going on?
    Not sure why they are doubled, unless you have the playlist folder inside the music folder (bad idea).
    for example, in my files on LMS, I have the following structure:

    albums are in flac subdirectory under music
    music/flac/.....

    Playlist files are in playlist subdirectory under music
    music/playlists

    And I tell LMS this in the settings section.

    But the empty playlists are likely because the file locations in your playlist files are now different. For example, in my vortexbox LMS server, the playlist file locations are something like:

    /storage/music/flac/Buddy Holly/Not Fade Away; The Complete Studio Recordings and More\Disc 3\10-I'm Gonna Love You Too.flac

    in my rPi LMS server, the file location (using attached USB drive) is:

    /mnt/LMSfiles/music/flac/Buddy Holly/Not Fade Away; The Complete Studio Recordings and More\Disc 3\10-I'm Gonna Love You Too.flac


    The way I fixed this when I transfered the playlist files is to simply edit the playlist files with a find and replace using any text editor. for example, I'd want to:
    find: /storage/music/
    replace with: /mnt/LMSfiles/music/

    I can do this easily for multiple playlist (text) files all at once using find and replace within the free program, Notepad++

    edit: to figure out what the correct file locations are for your rPi, just create a new playlist file within LMS running on your rPi pointing at some NAS music. then open this new playlist file and look at the folder references.

    playlists are in a separate folder. will check the path, guess i assumed since i pointed the new instance of LMS to the folder it would understand the server path was inferred.

    inside playlist references not correct:

    instead of:
    #EXTURL:file:///musicstation/Music/Music/Cassandra%20Wilson/Blue%20Light%20Til%20Dawn/10%20Tupelo%20Honey.aiff
    #EXTINF:336,Tupelo Honey

    should be (I've bolded):
    #EXTURL:file:///mnt/musicstation/Music/Music/Cassandra%20Wilson/Blue%20Light%20Til%20Dawn/10%20Tupelo%20Honey.aiff
    #EXTINF:336,Tupelo Honey

    (and in case I'm not quite right, create a new playlist from a music file in the rPi, then look at it to see how the location reference differs).

    p.s. If this doesn't fix it, you should probably start a new thread on "LMS doubling my playlists and blank too" or something. Your current problem has nothing to do with this thread.

    HiFiBerry DAC+ DSP

    Hi,

    the HifiBerry DAC+ DSP uses an old overlay (dtoverlay=hifiberry-dac). Therefore I used an older Audio Output Device Setting: HifiBerry DAC Zero/MiniAMP.

    With this configuration, I get music on both outputs, analogue and digital. Hence, from pCP point of view, everything is fine.

    But unfortunately, the HifiBerry HAT doesn't work as I expected. The sampling rate of the digital output is always 48 kHz because the DSP has to run with a fixed sample rate to process the audio samples. HifiBerry confirmed this behaviour:
    https://support.hifiberry.com/hc/en-...put-Samplerate

    This transformation is also done if the input signal has 44.1 kHz as sampling rate. I am not sure whether I can live with this kind of transformation.

    thanks Gary, got it to work, and figured out the the duplicates as well. really appreciate the help.

    still have some odd playlist behavior, but that's another thread.

    Won't stay in 'Beta' Mode, Every Boot of PiCorePlayer

    Something minor I noticed. I have a New Pi 4 running PcP 6.0. Just running squeezelite and for some reason it will not stay in Beta Mode. Every time I boot it up, it reverts to Player mode. My other Pi 4 Running just LMS and Not Squeezelite will stay in Beta Mode.

    As, well as my Other 8 other Raspberry Pies that are mostly 3B+, All running 6.0 and only squeezelite will also stay in Beta Mode.

    You need to run a backup task after you change. Some tasks will automatically run a backup, but most simple tasks will not. If you do not see a box that says a backup is being done, then it's not done.

    Thanks ! -- Stupid Me! --- I backed it up and it worked fine.... I had mistakenly thought that a Reboot backed it up first.
