I've installed this plugin in volumio (1.015) and have a LMS running on the same network.
How do I tell the volumio squeezelite plugin to connect to the server?
Also where do I put the LMS password?

Thanks in advance!

@mktippett

Sorry for the late reply..
Unfortunately I'm afraid that we've never used that plugin before having zero squeezelite experience. Best to ask to Volumio community forum I guess how this works as we unfortunately can't provide support for every possible plugin of the Volumio distribution.. :-(

To "connect" the SHD to theLMS just open the webinterface of the server and choose the SHD from the list of available squeezeboxes. SHD needs to be powered on. Some apps (e.g. Squeezecommander) will also let you do the same.

The SHD does not appear in the list.

That's odd. You did activate the plugin in Volumio.? Can you post a screenshot of the Volumio plugin page?

I found the place in volumio to activate the pluggin (had not done that), and restarted everything.
Not seeing SHD in the squeezeserver list of players.

How do I post a screenshot here? I tried an attachment w/o success.

Hi,
The squeezelite plugin does not work properly. You have to login via ssh, install gcc via apt and compile and install libwiringpi Then the plugin starts and you can configure it via the installed plugin page.

But once installed, it produces only white noise on all devices displayed. There seems to be a bug in the i2s driver. I use a raspi with picoreplayer over USB input instead. But still, this behavior is quite annoying. I also tried to use the latest squeezelite, but no success.
Maybe minidsp could put some pressure on the developers to fix this since they probably pay for it.

Is it correct that the squeezelite plugin does not work properly without compiling? And compiling requires ssh access, and ssh access is disabled? No love for the squeeze community. :-(

Sounds easier to add a RP and to run a picore player picoreplayer.org/

Hi, you definitively need ssh access, but that's easy, the guys from minidsp provide the data . After installing the plugin, you can either install gcc and the libwiringpi or you just use the squeezelite binary for armhf from sourceforge. Just download it to the internal Storage and move it to /opt . I use it this way. No hassles.
