    Replace two devices with RasPad?

    The LMS package for my Synology NAS has been deprecated and I was looking for a 4B as recommended to me in this thread. Unfortunately the retailer in Canada I knew about is sold out of all the 4B units.

    I went looking on Amazon and a sponsored result for a RasPad came up, which I somehow had never heard about. It's a touchscreen Rpi solution.

    I searched for RasPad on this forum and was surprised that it did not appear.

    In particular the video commercial is surprisingly polished:
    https://www.sunfounder.com/products/...-tablet-raspad

    It looks good and I'm wondering if this could serve a dual purpose:

    1. Run LMS and access my music on the Synology NAS (SMB connection?) which is running a deprecated LMS package
    2. Replace my Squeezebox Touch with a bigger screen.


    Thoughts?

    Looked like an OK price for RPi and Screen ... but scrolling down shows

    ATM that retailer has the 4B-4GB board in stock. Grab it while you can!

    I'm all set up! Thanks for the nudge.


    I have Spotty (wife's Spotify) working, my NAS via NFS, Podcastsů only problem is that TIDAL tracks won't start playing.

    Here's the log with debug on for TIDAL. Any ideas?

    Code:

    A permissions issue or run out of disk space perhaps.
    Have you expanded the Linux file system to use the full SD capacity?

    Which system are you running on your RPi ?

    I am running piCorePlayer on a 4GB microSD card which I resized to use the entire SD card. That section now says:

    Weird, and now it started working. I guess a third restart can take the credit?
