    Qobuz, PiCorePlayer, LMS

    I've installed PiCorePlayer on a Raspberry Pi, added LMS and the Qobuz plugin (and configured with account details). Activated the DLNA/upnp interface. I was hoping this would allow me to access my Qobuz service via DLNA renderers.

    This is not happening - I see some folders, but the always lead to "No Music". Am I mistaken in thinking this set up will provide what I am looking for, or is something wrong with my installation?

    AFAIK only the local music would be shared over DLNA. LMS probably isn't
    what you're looking for if your primary use is DLNA.

    Thanks. Maybe I have exhausted the possibilities. I have been prevented from using Qobuz for more than 3 months because Yamaha appears incapable of fixing its MusicCast system. The only alternative seemed to be to deliver Qobuz to the MusicCast devices via DLNA. Perhaps that can't be done, in which case I may as well cancel my Qobuz subscription (and never buy a Yamaha audio product again).

    Before you give up, wouldn't this plugin work?

    Also doesn't the Yamaha come with AirPlay? If so then the AirPlay (RAOPBridge) plugin will also work and is quite a bit less fiddly that the UpNPBridge Slarti refers to.

    Thanks, but doesn't this allow other DLNA servers to be pulled in to LMS? My problem is getting Qobuz to be a DLNA server. So I'm not sure what source I could use with Tapatalk.

    Thanks. Not too sure. Will it feed through material from the Qobuz plugin? That's the issue with the DLNA plugin, it doesn't.

    I think you have not quite understood.

    You install LMS without DLNA support, install the Qobuz plugin.
    Then install the AirPlay or UPnP bridge plugin to LMS. The AirPlay one is more likely to work without fiddling.
    Switch the Yamaha to Airplay mode.
    All being well you will see the Yamaha appear as a player in LMS (top right)
    Then using the web gui you can play your Qobuz stuff to the Yamaha.

    EDIT. The principle is the same for the UpNP bridge just more fiddly.

    EDIT2. Either of these plugins makes your Yamaha become a native SB/LMS player

    Have you got any player attached to LMS at this stage?

    This plugin and the airplay plugin allow your DLNA or airplay player to act like a Squeezebox so will let you play anything you can play on a genuine Squeezebox.
