Hi,
My NAS (QNAP) is connected successfully. But the problem I m having is that every time I scan the music library I get a different number of album, artists and tracks. After a few seconds it stops scanning and end with 0 album, artist and tracks.
The update library option doesn't seem to work. I have tried to reboot the SHD but I get the same result.
Volumio is updated to the latest available version.
Has anybody had a similar problem or knows how to fix it?
Thanks

@KBongers

Sorry for missing your post. Typically, this issue comes when some non standard audio files are listed.
Volumio is also investigate another bug in some odd specific cases. We haven't been able to reproduce it here so they are working with a customer to try to reproduce the issue. Hopefully an update for the next build.

I've been suffering with this issue for quite some time now. It seems to be specific to the miniDSP distribution of Volumio. I have tried other versions of Volumio with my music library and they all work. I have even purchased another nanoPi Neo2 and used a distribution built for it without any problems. Too bad that distro does not have drivers for the SHD :-(

I have provided the dev-team with a specific song that crashes their scan, and they promised a fix. This was over a year ago: two more updates and the same problem continues!

This makes the streaming portion of this otherwise excellent device useless! ... PLEASE FIX!

Same story, more or less, for me, till I decided to back to my raspberry pi 2B for music streaming.

First, I had the well known issue: Scanning stucks on specific songs for no obvious reason. Through SSH/logs and a full day trial and error, I found all files where volumio was crashing and I moved them out of the NAS. Once it was able to scan all my music, another issue came up; Since my music library is too large, volumio is unable to handle it through NFS mount.
So I tried to use DLNA on my NAS. This time volumio was not able to show all subfolders, if they are too many. So again, it did not work as expected.

In the end, I had no other options, that return back to the raspberry pi 2B/moode .

Not what I was expecting from a device of such cost, where everything should work fine out of the box.

(Not to mention other serious issues with the volumio, e.g. with the wifi disconnecting and not reconnecting again etc.).

I think that the volumio really needs some "love" from the Dev Team. There are serious bugs there which make it useless for many owners. Hope that they will pay attention some day on it.

Yup. Volumio and the nano pi built into the shd sucks. Hard. I have gone back to my rpi4 using moode plugged into the usb input on the SHD (with an 2 external ssd drives attached to the pi) and it is rock solid. I was trying to reduce box counts but only managed to remove one. The SHD really needs to come with a gruntier pi, preferably a rpi 4 and they need to open it up for other software options. Moode is so much better than the stock volumio. Add the extra ram and processing power of the pi4 and it just walks all over the nanopi on the shd. My pi can index 3TB of music in a little over 10 minutes. Volumio on the nanopi could not even index 500gb. It just stalled. The only thing the nano pi is any goodd for is playing music off a server or as an endpoint for Roon, which now doesn't work either. The SHD really should not be seen as an in all in one option. Forget reliable streaming and reliable wifi connectivity. It is a great preamp, dac, adc and dsp. Thats it though. Most other streaming products leave it in the dust for that aspect.

What I really hope minidsp does not do is provide a SHDv2 with an updated pi onboard and not offer it as an upgrade for current SHD users. If ther offer this option then I will happily pay the extra to get my SHD upgraded. Unfortunately the pin connectors for the newer, faster nanopi and the rpi do not match the current ones on the SHD. So not an easy upgrade, along with having to mess with the software which I do not want to do with a product that cost this much.

I guess we all wait with baited breath for something awesome from minidsp. For anyone wanting an SHD to be everything it claims to be... keep waiting. DSP and DAC - check. Streamer - fail.

I faced that problem as well.....took me almost a week to finally be able to scan my library (30k songs). I tried everything I found on the net : deleting special characters in the tags and any file other than flac or mp3 in the library.......I started to scan in batches and looking at which folder the process was stopping.....crazy because it takes a few seconds before the counter goes to "0"... nothing seemed to work.

If my memory is correct, the artwork was causing the problems.....the only thing I had to do was running mp3tag software on my library. The "fix aspect ratio" option in the artwork menu fixed my issue if I remember well.....

Thanks for this. Does it change the artwork in any way? Is the mp3tag software capable of batch changes? My library is way too big to do this for every album. Thanks for any info.

I didn't notice any change....

Although I knew which folders I had problems with, I scanned my full library with mp3tag, around 30k songs, all at one time. You only need to select the folder your music is located. Make sure you don't enter anything on the tags ( album, artist...) fields, otherwise your songs tags will be overwritten. Nothing to worry about as it's quite visual the changes the program is about to do upon running the scan. You basically leave everything unchecked except this "fix aspect ratio" thing in the artwork......

When I go to http://<IP address of my volumio>/dev, I get a rather lengthy log file. I noticed the following error:

"Failed to read mixer for 'alsa': no such mixer control: PCM"

Does anyone know what type of error is this? Is this something that negatively affects the indexing service?

Thanks @Hoon for coming up with the solution of using the mp3tag software!

We'll have to wait for that! miniDSP have ignored the problem for 2 years now... blaming "bad MP3" files for the problems. How then does the current build of Volumio manage to read all of them??? And BluOS? And LogitechMediaServer??? All of them went through my library without a fault. They need to make it a priority.

It is somewhat baffling that Volumio aborts the whole scan at the first imperfect file. Worst case it could just ignore those files and index the rest surely. It does not give confidence in Volumio design choices.

This bug bit me early on, I plugged the same usb stick into a raspberry pi dlna server which promptly indexed all the files.
