    Hi,

    I don't have a Raspdac so I can't help with my own experience... audiophonics don't mention picoreplayer as an option to work with the raspdac. For OLED displays on PicorePlayer there is LMSMonitor. Not sure it is compatible with the Raspdac display though, you would have to double check:

    Remote control should be much easier to get to work. Plenty of forum threads.

    Thanks for info. I have just tried Audiophonics Dietpi image, which includes LMS and squeezelite. Display and remote working fine but I don't have a clue how to run squeezelite or to connect to LMS on my other pi. All a bit too much for my old brain.

    In theory ...
    Stop LMS on the DietPi installation (and set it to not restart on next boot).
    Then on your player ... navigate through the menus to look for an option to connect to a different LMS.
    There is a good chance that if you pick "My Music" and it cannot find the LMS that it was last connected to then it will offer you another one that it found.

    If that does not work then they might have configured it to always go to a particular LMS and you might have to ask them how to change it if it is not obvious from their interfaces.

    I thought I saw on the MoOde forum you had it working.

    Why not use Squeezelite via MoOde ?

    My Raspdac mini runs great under MoOde, but I have been trying out the material skin for LMS and found it very good.

    I have been using Squeezelite via MoOde on pi 3b+ running with LMS on my pi 4 with no problems. It was just that I found picoreplayer more convenient to use, but missed the display and remote functions, plus it has a more up to date version of Squeezelite, not sure if that makes any difference?

    Ask the people at Audiophonics about a pCP install.

    I have a previous incarnation of this set up (just never bothered to install everything in the case ).

    It was a similar situation, but pCp was (partially) supported.

    MoOde runs on Raspbian Lite, I would suggest getting a spare sd card, installing raspbian desktop (basic version) add squeeezelite, check if you can play via the dac, then configure the power switch and then the screen.

    This will, obvs, involve a bit of searching around the Audiophonic / Moode forums and looking for the procedures on how to do each bit

    It involves a lot of trial and error but might help you pass away the time

    Look through the procedures here

    http://https://www.audiophonics.fr/e...red-image.html

    and this seem to show that a pCP install will work in basic form

    https://www.audiophonics.fr/en/blog-diy-audio/31-.html

    You will need to study the screen install scripts on the other players to see how they work.

    That is why I suggested the Raspbian Desktop for a proof of concept

    1) check the dac is recognised, it should play back a radio station from Chromium

    2) just install Squeezelite via the package manager (don't worry about the version number)

    3) check the power supply set-up, this might help (I don't know if it includes their board)

    http://https://github.com/audiophoni...ster/README.md

    do the same for the screen set up

    It should be able to run it on the raspbian desktop , then transfer to raspbian lite / pcp

    Audiophonics should offer better suppport

    Thanks again ronnie, I going to have another look at the Audiophonics Dietpi image, at least the remote and display work.
