HQ Player NAA, RPI, Volumio Help


Would any tech folk have a fail safe walk through of setting up HQ Player NAA on a RPI 3B please?

Currently have Volumio installed which I’d like to keep. I understand it can be installed vis SSH, which is what I am looking for instructions for.

Many thanks


Well, you need to know the admin password. I use putty to ssh into my linux boxes. Try downloading it.

Hi Daniel,

I know the password and can access SSH. I’m just looking for guidance on installing the NAA as to what linux steps are required.


Hi Wayne,

See this post and following discussion. It’s all a bit old now, so I’m not sure if anything has changed.

Thanks Andy… I’ll take a look

@andybob No luck with that thread…probably a little old now.

Anyone else have any idea please?

Maybe @muski could help?


You can either just download and boot full OS image for NAA. Since the OS is on a microSD, it is easy to have pile of different microSD’s for different purposes.

Or alternatively you can download the relevant (depending on your distro version) .deb package and just “sudo dpkg -i” it. If it complains about missing dependencies “sudo apt install -f” will complete the installation by pulling in the necessary dependencies.

Thanks Jussi… I haven’t got much idea about writing Linux lines but will have a try. Cheers

Struggling with this…This is what I put in and the errors received if anyone can advise where Im going wrong please.

“sudo dpkg -i” is command to install package. “sudo apt install -f” pulls in missing dependencies after, it if complains about something missing.

But otherwise that is a very old version, 3.6.0 is latest. And you have a typo in the file name… :wink:

Unfortunately that is too old, you need at least 9 (stretch), or preferably 10 (buster).

Cheers Jussi

Hi -

I realize this is a fairly ancient thread, but thought I’d ask since it’s the closest I can find to my question.

Is there any way to install the latest HQP alongside Volumio on an RPi4/Pi2AES, or is that crazy? Should I just go with the “two separate SD cards” route?
