    Start-up clicks

    Now that the RPi3B is running with 8.2.0 I encounter the following issue.

    When the player is ready, there is a minute or so of activity, signalled by the red led occasionally flashing. That would not be important, but every flash of the led is audible as a moderately loud 'click'.
    LMS 8.2 on RPi4 - PiCorePlayer 8.0.0 (SqueezeLite) on RPi1, moving to 8.2.0 on RPi3.

    Yes the RTL8192CU is an in-tree driver. pCP does not have a network manager running, so it makes decision on which network devices to use at boot.
    piCorePlayer a small player for the Raspberry Pi in RAM.

    I believe when pCP starts squeezelite, if it finds wifi and wired ethernet, it will choose wired ethernet to connect to LMS.

    So squeezelite <-> LMS will use wired ethernet.

    You can use either wifi and wired to connect to the pCP web GUI or ssh etc.

    At least that was how it worked when the code was originally written. It may have changed?? or the wheels have fallen off??

    I can't see why you would have both wifi and wired after the initial setup.

    Look at [Main Page] > [Diagnostics] > [Raspberry Pi] > "Controls MAC". This page shows you MAC addresses, IP addresses and Controls MAC which is used by squeezelite.

    What are you using as the player ?

    However, please note that an IP address is the address of an interface to a box and not the box itself. One IP address per interface means that your DHCP server should assign an IP address to a box's WiFi interface MAC address (if enabled) and another (different) one to the box's (different) Ethernet interface MAC address.

    I think your DHCP server is set up to specifically allocate ".4" to the MAC address of the WiFi interface. I think this will not be assigned to the Ethernet interface with a different MAC address. I think you will get a different IP address. I suggest you should add a new allocation to your DHCP server's setup to assign a different IP address to the different Ethernet MAC address or allocate ".4" but delete the same allocation to the WiFi MAC address.

    This might be a power supply issue


    I'll reconfigure my rpi3b (I have it working now withe si-f- dongle; I think it must have been a PEBCAK error )

    I'll install lms and see what occurs.

    The green Act led should flash occasionally and the red led remain constant.

    have you looked in the lms server logs ?

    I don't think the source of the music is relevant, since the clicks are audible even if nothing is playing.

    I'll check the power supply.

    Are these clicks audible only through the speakers or from the device ?

    I have an old 2.5 inch usb HDD which periodically clicks when attatched to a raspberry pi. If I connect it via a powered usb hub it gets enough power, the clicks go away (magic )
