Re: Google Home and LMS

Yes [ have dots and echo, and now a home mini. The biggest difference is the sound quality of the mini vs. the dot. Much better, and it has a basic equalizer. It also makes fewer errors in responding. However, the menu of apps/skills is much less than Alexa. Another plus for LMS users is that it can...

Google Home and LMS

Just a note: Google Home (and Mini) works fine as a player with the chromecastbridge plugin on LMS.

Re: Plex Media Server on the joggler

To edit within WinSCP you have to log-in as root. You must have set up a root account previously. Try username root and password root. To use a Dot to control squeezeplay you'd have to install the habtunes Alexa plugin. It's a 'closed' alpha test program at the moment ... development to an open beta...

You can't play to a browser, if that's what you mean - you must choose a SB player to use.

I always just set it to Do not defeat.

Like you, I've no idea what it does otherwise.

Re: 4x OpenPeak 7E on E Bay

Definitely ... if you use the usb boot routine for other OS. Not sure, but some models disable the usb boot on first use. Take care.

Re: Mediaserver Debian Version

There's some confusion here, I think, between the LMS versions and Squeezeplay versions. Player versions are a 'mystery' to me - as far as I know there have been few updates. LMS has now progressed to 7.9.1 - the community version, which has a number of enhancements and fixes over the earlier versio...

Re: Mediaserver Debian Version

Sorry, I've not been very clear, I was just wondering quickly whether anyone new about the defeat option, if I could download the old 7.8 I'd just do that... I have LMS running on my synology NAS (Linux), which has a package, so there's nothing special to do - it's currently 7.7.3-113 When I did my...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

Hi

It works well - the final step is to allow for selecting favourites & playlists .... that seems to be stalled for some reason.

Otherwise all the usual LMS commands work.

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

Very strange ... several reports that triode's spotify still works, despite the announcement that it would die.

So many variables that'll be difficult to pin down!

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

Surprised that your triode plugin still works, as it is no longer supported.

Spotty is the only plugin choice.

Google Music plugin for Squeezebox - help needed

There's a plugin for Google Music - which works if it's installed using the specialised package available for max2play. The general instructions for installing on Linux are here: https://squeezebox-googlemusic.github.io/squeezebox-googlemusic/ I followed these (without much comprehension!) for spqos...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame - open a port

Help needed !

I want to access LMS from outside the network.

How do I go about opening the appropriate port on sqpOS? Is there a firewall?

Need basic advice!

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

I cancelled my deezer sub (hardly ever used it) and switched to Amazon Music. The dev. is awaiting fixes to the LMS plugin by the author. I have the actual skill installed on Alexa, but it does nothing without the plugin .... I'll update when things get moving again. The first version is pre-pre-alp...

Yep. The hab-tunes skill is under development .... stalled for a while because of plugin bugs. I;ve found the tunein radio streams is okay - but useless if you try to access 'foreign' stations Amazon Music Unlimited is good = the Echo-only subscription doesn't work outside the UK - had to sign up fo...
