Hi,

I’m a Linux user and somewhat put off by the lack of the Plugin for Linux. It means that I need to keep an old Windows laptop around in order to make changes to the configurations (in my case a DDRC-24).

I would be very happy to see a web interface to the Plugin. This would effectively add Linux support and remove the necessity of physically connecting to the miniDSP to make changes. This would probably require some hardware changes in order to run a web server and support WiFi etc. Perhaps in a first iteration, this could simply be done by leaving a Raspberry Pi connected to the miniDSP.

I assume there is currently no way of interacting with the device outside of using the official the Plugin e.g. command line tools, API?

Just a suggestion. Overall, I’m very happy with my miniDSP.

Just found this Python API which appears to be everything I need. Fantastic.

I now have a Raspberry Pi connected to the miniDSP. Using bespoke Python API and a simple web server running on the Raspberry Pi, I am able to see the settings of my miniDSP in web browsers on devices in my local network e.g. on my mobile phone. Next step is to make the settings configurable via the web interface.

I thought I'd just round off this topic by showing the final result. As seen in the screenshot, the DDRC24 (or 2x4HD) can now be controlled via a web browser (mute, Dirac, input, config). At the moment, I only allow reading the volume, not set it.

Hi Sebbesen,

This looks wonderfull.
Is there a installationmanuel for dummy's available?
Would it be possible to connect two 2x4HD's to one raspberry Pi? (through USB) or would I need 2 raspberrys for that?
Thanks in advance.
Gerard.
