LibreSpot working just fine, put on a separate playlist on each of two devices and left for four hours. Put on a playlist and then synced both NGXL zones and left for an hour. All good so far.
One question @spockfish - there’s really no reason for a user not to run XL assuming your device has sufficient resources, right? It’s not like you’re taxing the Pi because you have LibreSpot on it if you never activate it?
Ropieee is so lightweight it has always felt to me that you could collapse the branches and just have XL (only not call it that because there wouldn’t be anything else), and a bunch of people would just never use anything but the RoonBridge capabilities. But maybe I’m missing some devices or use cases that you’d be unnecessarily leaving behind. Or maybe it offends the audiophile / tech credo to have any unnecessary code in the digital pathway. Just thought I’d ask.
One other funny thing… My Unifi threat detection is blocking something it’s trying to do. I have it set very high, let me know if you want details on what it thinks is going on; all is working as expected however.
Technically you’re right, especially with the NG stuff. But the reason why I made this choice is because the biggest group of RoPieee users is non-technical, Roon-only. And I feel strongly about keeping the initial RoPieee principles alive: an appliance that is as simple as possible. If you want to ‘tinker’ around there are other (and better) solutions out there.
But (and I have already been thinking about this but eventually decided to not do that for now) I can imagine that in a certain future there’s only one version of RoPieee, that completely hides XL functionality, unless you flip a switch on the advanced tab.
Does anyone know where to find the Librespot or Ropieee config file so that I can change the hostname format used by Librespot?
I was able to do this previously, eg. setting to appear in Spotify as “Kitchen” rather than “Kitchen [RoPieeeXL]”
Not sure if this is a bug, or designed behaviour, but on my RopieeXL-NG endpoint, which is an Allo USBridge Sig with the Digione Sig HAT, UPnP.DLNA, Shairport Sync and Librespot all offer the choice of None or Software for volume control, but Squeezelite only offers Software.
