Re: Stuck on Squeezeplay splash screen after power off

Yep, the joggler's internal memory is rubbish. This time install it on a USB stick!

Re: Plex Server Pi2 B project .

AI is still in its infancy, my echo often doesn't hear me calling it if there's loud music on even if I'm right next to it.

Re: Plex Server Pi2 B project .

The dot is good fun but makes my wife roll her eyes quite a lot! I use it with Bluetooth and have it paired with my Sony SRS-X55 speaker. It's good for Tunein Radio, news headlines, weather, kitchen timer, adjusting the Nest thermostat, playing music from my Amazon account, operating my Wemo switch ...

Re: Plex Server Pi2 B project .

I would probably connect the HDD to the Pi rather than the home hub :-)

Re: Plex Server Pi2 B project .

It all seemed to go so well :-( it looks like the drive has become un mounted in Raspbian Jessie as I can't see the contents of the folders anymore and I could before .

Re: Plex Server Pi2 B project .

Happy new year Gary!

The Pi2 is a fantastic Plex server. I also have mine running Kodi and am just about to have a go at setting it up as an Apache web server so I can hack my new Amazon Echo Dot to operate my cheapo Orvibo wifi plug.

The Android build is also very useful and finger friendly. Unfortunately it's stuck at 4.0.

Joggler killer?

I've retired my kitchen Joggler after many years of loyal service although I still have two running Squeezeplay OS and a spare one in the loft! It has been replaced with a Pipo X8 tablet which has 64GB of RAM and dual boots Windows 10 and Android 4.4 with a 7" screen. The screen resolution is much b...

Re: SSD experiments

No, my various SSDs are nestling inside laptops & PCs. I have a Raspberry Pi2 with a 2TB 2.5" old-fashioned HDD and it streams all my media via Plex & Logitech Media Server. I guess I could use a SSD but it's plenty fast as it is and much better than the WD MyBook Live it replaced.

Re: SSD experiments

These USB to SATA adapters are very handy, I've used a USB2 version for a couple of years now. I can't believe how cheap these SSDs are getting, I just bought the same SSD for my in-laws' PC.

Re: Squeezeplay not working on Windows 10?

Thanks Pete - do you still have the Squeezeplay 7.7.1 R0 windows installer? The only versions I can find are 7.8.

Re: Squeezeplay not working on Windows 10?

Thanks, I'll look for the log files. It runs fine on my Win10 PC. I've already posted this on the slimdevices board you mentioned so fingers crossed.
