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.

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.

Squeezeplay not working on Windows 10?

I've bought a Pipo X8 tablet running Windows 10 Home 32-bit. Squeezeplay 7.8.0r328 installs but refuses to start. Whenever I try to start it I just get a small icon appearing on the screen. I've tried re-downloading it and several reinstalls. It has a Intel Z3736F CPU and 2GB RAM, so quite a common ...

Re: Bt Home Hub 5 ( possibly others ) as cheap NAS

Interesting! On a similar note I've just set up a Raspberry Pi 2 as a media server & NAS. It's much faster than the WD MyBook Live it's replacing and the 2.5" external HDD attached to it powers up nicely from the USB bus.

Re: Chromecast Audio

The full Chromecast connects to your telly via an HDMI connection and streams video. The Chromecast Audio connects to a hifi or powered speaker and streams audio only. I think.
