first RP 3 I had I made a NAS with a linux distro, that's how I was playing to the Sonos, gave that away. The setup now I plug into the USB port on the RP 3.
so I have to correct myself, I don't know how Sonos sounds with a HDD directly plugged into it, you can't do that with the Connect. But from memory the RP 3 and the files directly connect to it sound better than from the NAS to to sonos.
I can play it on a RaspberryPi running PcP?
Of course I may not be technical enough to figure out how to do that, even with a video to watch and the positive encouragement of inmate 'Cut-throat', but I could TRY! ;-)
that's not what you want to do. Run LMS on a separate PC/server. For me, that is a no-brainer since I use multiple players (4). Why replicate server functionality for each player?
An RPi's 1 GHz internal memory is the limiting factor. Rather than have it house PcP and LMS, it's far better to use the memory to buffer the output so that you're playing from memory.
whoops you means the software, LOL!
I have no idea how it works, you figured out the issue you had by yourself when we talked. IP address was the key.
