Do I need to manually update or does RoPieee automatically update?

Depends on how did you set the rule in the Advanced tab

Thanks I will check. I assume that is what I did but who knows

You can choose the update channel (stable or beta), the update schedule (manually or on boot) and the reboot schedule and the reboot time

Hi @spockfish Harry,

What version of librespot is used in current release XL?

I’m currently using raspotify on DietPi and it’s running librespot 1.6. I’m hoping that 2.0 or the hopefully released 3.0 improve SQ over 1.6.


I can’t relate to those version numbers that you are mentioning.
Are you sure you don’t have the digit wrong? Because 0.1.6 and 0.2 are valid Librespot releases.

Anyhow, XL runs the latest stable release, 0.2.
