    Support for Netgear ReadyNAS

    I still running LMS on my old Netgear ReadyNAS

    Just found out that it is not supported anymore, the last version are LMS 8.0, image: logitechmediaserver-8.0.0-sparc-readynas.bin
    Why?
    It could be nice to still support this old device, if possible
    Or mayby I'm looking the wrong place?

    At some point newer versions didn't run on that device any more (I had a
    NV and a Duo v2 myself!). Supporting a hardware device that old really
    would have been a painful experience. In particular the Sparc based
    units were (IMHO anyway) painfully slow to use from day 1. We even
    modified LMS to eg. render lower quality (faster) cover art, as the
    device couldn't handle it... You'd be so much better served using a Pi
    to run LMS, serving files from your NAS.

    I'd echo the recommendation for a Pi.

    I ran LMS on my ReadyNAS NV+ v2. It worked, but was never really responsive enough.

    The day I moved to a Pi 4, running piCorePlayer, was transformative. The interface was so much faster - almost immediate. And library scans were so quick, they're almost inconsequential. I completed my upgrade by adding a 512GB USB flash drive to the Pi, to move the library local. The end result? Awesome, reliable performance, and all for under GBP 100. Money incredibly well spent.
    Server: piCorePlayer 8.1.0 on Pi 4B 2GB running LMS 8.2.0, with library on local 512GB USB drive
    Listening on: 2 x Squeezebox Radios 8.0.1 , and direct from the Pi using a Beringer UCA202 USB audio interface

    Moved away from LMS and PMS on ReayNAS last week. Installed Ubuntu LTS server on an old office PC with SSD. Still have all music on the NAS. Works great.
