  • Hi all, newbie here so please forgive me if i ask stupid or common questions that maybe found elsewhere in this forum, I get a bit excited at times and don't like reading hundreds of pages to find what I'm looking for.... just need the facts!

    Anyway, I have a dedicated audio PC that is currently setup with JRiver and AudioOptimise but I've been reading really good thins about SnakeOil so thinking I should give it a go. I didn't build this PC but I know the basic's pf building a machine. This has a SSD for the OS and separate HDD for the music, SoTm USB card.

    My thoughts are to get another SSD for this new OS so I can leave the AO drive setup so I can swap if required.

    So, what do I need? Whats the first step (apart from putting in a blank SSD). 

    Appreciate any help, as I say - know a little and the saying is that can be dangerous......

    Cheers Dave

  • Hi

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this.  I can't seem to find a way to display my albums in a grid view.  The only view possible seems to be a text list of artists which makes browsing my library somewhat difficult.  Is this feature missing because SnakeOil uses an older version of MyMPD or am I doing something wrong?  It is possible to update to the latest MyMPD or is that not such a great idea?

  • Using the 32bit snakeoil on two different machines (one gigabyte ga-3050n-d2p and one intel dn2800mt motherboard) I experience the following:

    The volume output through an ESI gigaport HD+ DAC is very low. Using either machine though a Hegel H80 integrated DAC the level is normally loud. ALSA mixer is set to 100% in all cases. Have also tried different USB cables.

    Plugging a Windows PC into the gigaport DAC the output is as loud as you’d expect, so the DAC CAN indeed output a ‘normal’ signal, but doesn’t with the snakeoil machines connected.

    Is there anything in Snakeoil OS that could cause one DAC but not another to interpret the signal as being lower in volume?

    The Gigaport DAC may off course be faulty in which case this is not a Snakeoil issue. Before I buy another one to test that option I thought I’d post a question here.

    Edit: I should add that I do know of others people who successfully use this DAC with these motherboards and Snakeoil OS without experiencing similar issues. So it’s not a fundamental compatibility issue.

  • My MPD Android client MPDroid, was set to download cover locally on port 80 and snakeoil machine adress eg and doesn't work - no cover,  also naming scheme is correct - folder.jpg.

    How to enable de-emphasis in playback of pre emphasised wav files - early first pressing cds, for example Michael Jackson and Abba.
