    Someone more knowledgeable than myself mentioned that the FRONT Parameter went through ALSA, and that the Parameter should be hw:CARD=D90,DEV=0 instead. I tried this Parameter and it also worked fine.

    A few questions.

    1.) What is ALSA?
    2.) Does it matter which Parameter I use?
    3.) What is the preferred parameter?

    Thanks!
    this should answer 2 out of three

    and

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squeezelite

    for the third, just please yourself

    I have picoreplayer running in a bedroom with ceiling speakers. I also have my windows desktop where I work. Is there a way other than bluetooth that my windows machine (say when playing yourube video etc) can be played through the ceiling speakers perhaps through the network or is bluetooth the only option?

    Can you look at dmesg to see if the hardware is being recognised?

    [Main page] > [Diagnostics] > [Logs] >select "dmesg" > [Show]

    Check that "net-usb-4.xx.xxx-pcpCore_v7.tcz" has been loaded.

    I ended up restarting from scratch of installing v 6.0.0 and managed to get it working.

    Just quick question on the backup, is there a way to back the picore image with my settings onto another drive, so that if my SD card fails, I can write the backup image to a new SD card and continue?

    I made a small donation because this software is just fantastic and I am using it as a multi-room audio system, so all image/settings are identical, so I only need 1 of them backed-up to a separate disk.

    I plan to use the pizero with ehternet adaptor in multiple rooms - I presume the pizero has enough grunt for picoreplayer?

    What about my other question - is there a way to back the picore image with my settings onto another drive, so that if my SD card fails, I can write the backup image to a new SD card and continue?

    Any disk imaging tool. Whatever you are writing the pCP image to the card with should work to create an image.
