    @Elmar.F

    Glad that you are sorted

    Many years ago I went to the old Salzburg Ring for a Moto GP, top venue (not so keen on it now though)

    I have seen the warning before, when using Windows to connect via SSH, I just ignored it and went back to Putty

    I mostly use Putty (you just get a warning sign and you can click through) and today found this

    https://itsfoss.com/putty-linux/

    so will give that a trial.

    You can shut down pCP as a player by just switching it off

    If you have LMS installed on the same card then use the shutdown box on the pCP Main Page.

    This page can be saved as a Browser shortcut on a smartphone. There are also apps (on Android) which allow one to configure a ssh link to shutdown by command line.

    If you use the Material Skin Plugin on a phone you can also access the same page

    Remember that when the pi is shutdown it is still powered and has to be replugged to start

    I would better ask Allo about the Boss power connections

    It won't hurt leaving the pi powered up 27/7 if you are happy to do so.

    When you are happy with your configuration make a back-up of the sd card

    Formula 1 is racing in Zeltweg (Redbull Ring) for a couple of years now. Isn't Salzburgring better known for Motorbikes and Oldtimer-Racings?

    LMS is installed on SDCard, so i continue shutting down the device via pCP as you recommended.

    That the pi is still powered when shut down is interesting, because the attached SSD cools down and draws no current.

    Regarding powersupply I already contacted Allo directly.

    Leaving the pi powered up 24/7 is not a problem cause the device itself stays cool, but the SSD is and remains a little above lukewarm, I'd say, so nothing I'd worry about.

    How can I find the Material skin plugin on an android phone?

    Configured Tidal on LMS (trial subscription) and to my surprise it works very nice.

    Go to
    http://lmsipaddress:9000/material
    but you can also install a mini Android app that is a wrapper for the skin.

    Ah , thanks for the info, I had thought the old 'ring had been updated and was now called the Red Bull thingy.

    It's an age thing , I'm glad the old ring is still there, I don't bother so much with the "new" Moto GP, I enjoyed very much the old "500" racing and used to visit a lot of tracks when I lived / worked in Holland.

    Nowadays I much prefer Britsh Superbikes, it's more competative imo.

    Linky here for Material Skin info, you also need the Music and Artist information Plugin.

    I don't know how long you have been running Linux but two laptops seems dedicated Anyway, for my part all you need to take with you is that things that look like they should work, like the network browser, doesn't always work in Linux. Should you find yourself in such a situation and there is a command line way of doing what you want then try that. If nothing else you tend to get better feedback about why it is failing.

    And for raspberrys to still have power when they are shutdown that is just how they work, I think it is a cost thingy. What you do when you shut them down is close to how computers used to work before the OS could control the power, the OS would save all open files and shut down all services but you had to flick the physical switch once that was done.
