    piCorePlayer 6.1.0 Auto start tweaks and lms 8.0.0 not working

    I have the following components running successfully
    • lms 8.0.0 on Synology 214+
    • piCorePlayer 6.1.0 on PI 3B+ and HIFIBERRY DAC+ PRO XLR


    Currently I am struggling to start a radio channel automatically when powering on the PI. I tried to use the "Tweaks -> Auto start favorite" via piCorePlayer Web Frontend without success. The drop down list is empty even though LMS IP address is auto-discovered and there are top level favorites existing on the lms side. Additionally I can turn on the radio via LMS CLI by executing the following commands on a PI terminal:

    Code:
    nc -w 50 192.168.x.x 9090
    favorites playlist play 3Aff3353a4.0
    Using "Tweaks -> Auto start LMS" with the latter command is also not working when rebooting the PI. Neither the sample command
    Code:
    randomplay tracks
    is working on a reboot.

    Are there any hints on what I am doing wrong? Are the auto start features only working when using a local LMS installation within piCorePlayer (I tested that successfully).

    Many thanks for advice.

    Are you sure thatĺs the correct port for synology?

    Thanks for the hint - it is working now The drop down box contains the lms favorites and music starts playing after a PI reboot.

    Solution was to change the LMS Web Server Port from 9002 to 9000 via "LMS > Settings > Advanced > Network > Web Server Port #"

    Alternatively one could configure piCorePlayer to use an alternative lms web server port via "piCorePlayer -> Tweaks -> LMS Web Port".

    My misunderstanding was, that I thought piCorePlayer would control LMS via LMS CLI (default port 9090) only, but it seems to use a web based API too.

    By the way - thanks a lot for piCorePlayer - I have it running for 2 weeks and don't want to miss it any more
