I sometimes use the Lumin/Esoteric App on my iPads, to control another OpenHome compliant player.
I notice a difference in app behaviour when using Twonky vs Minim 2 as server side software on one of my NAS devices and was wondering whether i am doing something wrong or the app is designed this way.
What i notice is this:
When selecting a Twonky based library the Lumin/Esoteric app seems to consume the whole index and build a local index in the app itself, a local cache it seems. But when i use Minim2 on the back end the Esoteric/Lumin app seem to on request information from the server “on demand” so to speak.
The user experience seem to be a bit more fluid and smooth with Twonky on the back end so…
If i rather use Lightning DS for controlling my Aries’ the app performs the same kind of local caching as i see with Lumin app and Twonky server, with a similar user experience once loaded.
Can i force the Lumin app to locally cache the library index when Minim2 is on the back end?
