Re: The new Raspberry Pi 4

According to Debian it should work. 2.1.2. Three different ARM ports The ARM architecture has evolved over time and modern ARM processors provide features which are not available in older models. Debian therefore provides three ARM ports to give the best support for a very wide range of different m...

Re: MinimServer : a very fine media server

WarHawk I tried to use that a few years ago.....very complicated and multi-layered install process. Could not get it to work. Interesting indeed, I only know of one person who uses it, he seems to like it, but in "Audiophile" circles new/different often = good. After you install it on your RPi let ...

Re: Could "Spotifyd" be available into DietPi software ?

Okay I tested it three more times, all on boards that 100% did not work before ie Amanero USB. After install, starting and enabling the service I used my primary Spotify device [my phone] to connect to Spotifyd. Each time it worked without a hitch. Note: These were all fresh brand new OS and Spotify...

Re: Could "Spotifyd" be available into DietPi software ?

Strange, now even the Amanero USB interface works. I guess its rare to be pissed that something works but in this case I don't want it to work. I want it to either be broke so I can fix it or at the very least allow me to break it so I can fix it. Now I run a very spartan spotifyd.conf file [spotify...

@Facel

This might be a way around it.

Go into alsamixer and adjust the level to your desired output. The volume 'should' decrease. After that you should be maxed at 50%.

This worked for me in one instance

Re: Could "Spotifyd" be available into DietPi software ?

Facel As far as I know spotifyd is just a endpoint for the spotify app. I don't think it can do anything else but stream from the app. Glad to know it worked out for you. For me its only at 100% for the initial connection, after that it stays at what ever volume I adjust it too for any music I list...

Re: Could "Spotifyd" be available into DietPi software ?

HI MichaIng, Thats a good question. Thats exactly the case, it bypasses ALSA but 'is' able to control the volume on everything [I' ve tried] except the Amanero USB device. To remedy this I found that if I use this in the spotifyd.conf file it will control the volume of everything, even the Amanero U...

Re: Could "Spotifyd" be available into DietPi software ?

Results Spotifyd seems to be totally fine with all USB chips I have except Amanero. This also includes HATS like the DigiOne and DigiOne SIg. Volume control etc works fine, every time without a hitch. Installed from scratch multiple times, results very consistent. Install process: 1. download and un...
