Update (31 Oct 2017): If you have problems starting mpd v20 or mpd GIT, please re-download the firmware and re-install. Alternatively, install upmpdcli. Apologies I missed this bug as I was testing upmpdcli (when this is installed mpd v20 and mpd GIT is working Big Grin)

1.0.6 brings some additional updates and fixes. Two notable additions:

USB reset
New command added to the System menu. If you don't see your DAC after a reboot, try and run this command and hopefully your DAC will reconnect

This player turns your Snakeoil OS into a DLNA renderer. If you have a DLNA music server, just queue your music from the music server to to the Snakeoil OS machine and it should play 'em. This should work but I havn't tried it myself, so it's still experimental at this stage. 

This setup will also supports tidal. Just put them in the options field like so. As an example, if my tidal login is 'user',  the password is 'pass', and I want high quality. The options field will be

As an example:

tidal_qual can be 'lossless', 'low' or 'high'.

Qobuz is also supported too, use 'qobuz_user' for login, qobuz_pass for password, and qobuz_fmnt for the format (5 or 7) 

Will update this in the manual eventually. Any questions, just ask here.

Change Log
  • 0000169[web-app] Simple reminder to reboot the computer if GUI fails after 5 reconnects
  • 0000168[web-service] Fix warning 'insserv: warning: script is corrupt or invalid: /etc/init.d/../rc6.d/K99_snakeoil`
  • 0000163[players] Add upmpdcli player - supporting Tidal (Don't think this will do MQA though)
  • 0000161[web-service] Adds the ability to reset the USB ports
  • 0000167[players] update mpd-git to latest and mpd-20 to 0.20.11

  • 0000164[web-app] In cyclictest, I said "1 ns = 1000 μs". Should be the opposite; 1μs = 1000 ns
  • 0000160[web-app] Show firmware checksum when upgrading, allowing user to know if there is a problem with a download
  • 0000166[web-app] When installing Roon, disable system auto-start.

My pleasure Thumbs Up .

Also guys, I have updated the 64 bit binaries (New SHA1 checksum: 15d51ee6fed1f4f49baa9e03fad8d7d1319a9ea5). Missed a problem with MPD v20 and MPD GIT, if you're having issues with these two software - the quickest/easiest way is to re-download the firmware (check it's using the new checksum above), and MPD and MPD-git will work again.
