I’ve just setup RoPieee XL on a Pi4 and am blown away with the elegance and power of this solution. Thank you, Harry!
My primary use-case is streaming Tidal HiFi from an iPad and iPhone via AirPlay to RoPieee XL and then via USB to my DAC.
The RoPieee XL shows up as expected in iOS under the “SPEAKERS & TVs” list, but when I select it and then attempt to play something in Tidal, I get an iOS error dialog titled “AirPlay” with the message “Unable to connect to “Lounge [RoPieeeXL]”” and an OK button. I have to repeat this process every time and then the second connection request seems to work.
I’m using the latest stable version of RoPieeeXL on a new Pi4 and the latest iOS (13.3.1 beta 2). Happy to help debug.
Harry, unrelated, but perhaps helpful feedback: three minor setup issues I encountered and partly resolved after re-reading the docs a few times: 1) I initially tried booting the Pi while connected to a TV via HDMI and then a computer monitor, assuming there would be config options. The screen kept turning off after the Linux boot sequence. It wasn’t clear to me that the screen output was disabled by design. Perhaps this should be clearly highlighted for first-timers? 2) I also somehow didn’t notice that the initial boot sequence was performing setup activities and would restart a few times and ultimately take up to 5 minutes to compete. When I finally found reference to how the flashing display light worked, this all fell into place for me. 3) The ropieee.local domain doesn’t seem to work for me (although I can connect via the IP). Anyway, hopefully some of this is helpful from the perspective of someone sort of technical who’s just setup a Pi and RoPieee for the very first time.
