He's REALLY enjoying his upgraded SONOS connect with a new $300 Mad Scientist Heretical Digital Cable.
'Tales of the Inexpressible' is fine. Even sound good on the Harbeth's, I betting. ;-)
Hey I heard that. I am going to get back on the RP tomorrow. I may need to email you and BH if you are around while trying this again.
But do watch 'Dynobot's' video. Slo-mo or stopping it every few seconds helps as it moves WAY faster than a 70 year old brain!
Where one gets in trouble is the 'less than intuitive' requirement to have a couple windows open in the browser. one with the computer running LMS's ip address followed by :9000 and a second window with just the ip address of the Pi you are working with, which CAN CHANGE depending on the mood of the ip addressing scheme of your network, as I am led to understand.
There is an iPhone app (which I don't have nor do I recall its name) which will tell you ALL of the ip addressees of every device on the same network as the iPhone.
Scary to know such apps exists if one uses WiFi at Starebucks!
I am working on it tomorrow and unknown to him, BH is helping me. This is way above my paygrade but I will persevere. Sort of like the Joe Walsh song "with a little help from my friends."
I am liking the new Sonos and with my shot to hell hearing I doubt that I will hear much difference between a Digi+pro and the Connect, BUT, the wife is now very comfortable with the Sonos app on the iPad and that means a lot.
You are jealous of my Canary Blue Cable. I can tell.
"the ip address of the Pi you are working with, which CAN CHANGE depending on the mood of the ip addressing scheme of your network."
I set up a permanent IP address for the RPi on my network. Very easy to do with my router. That way, accessing it via a terminal and ssh, or Putty, makes it easy to work with the code, or anything else.
The sound deamon has a lot to do with it, MPD, these developers can't get all the apps that Sonos has and make it easy to use. It is a nightmare to do that, so double28 and me are fine for streaming at least.
In terms of rips, yes the Pi and Digi+ Pro sounds better.
This is crazy!
I have no trouble running almost any App with LMS..... Heck, Ivan got Qobuz running in short order..
Need Google Music, Deezer Elite, SoundCloud, and Bandcamp.
Bandcamp here...... Any Streaming service worthwhile out there, someone has figured out a way to stream it via LMS..... That is why I am a LMS Fan.
I had a Sonos for awhile, but not like their Web Interface at all.
I had Deezer Elite running..... Just too limited a Catalog...
Install the Pluggin Ickstream (Directions are on-line) .... And you can install almost anything. Link Below
