Volumio Version: 2.853
Hardware: Raspberry Pi 4B with Allo DigiOne Signature hat as sold by Allo already assembled as DigiOne Signature Player.
DAC: External SMSL SU-9; straight out to powered speakers.
Yeah, I know… yet another thread with volumio.local/ issues… Here’s the peculiarities of my case.
I have my DigiOne Signature player connected to the network with a LAN cable and is prefectly identified by both my Windows 10 computer and my Android phone using Spotify connect, This means the Pi is in the network and streams to my DAC and speakers using the Spotify app whitout issues. Also, both the computer and phone are connected to the network using the same wifi subnet.
If I open the browser in my computer and type volumio.local/ it opens my volumio page without issues. In contrast, volumio.local/ does not open in the Android phone (tried three different browsers) and gives me the error volumio.local’s DNS address not found. Have also tried with a different Android phone with the same result.
I take that if Spotify connect can see volumio in the network using both devices, it isn’t a network issue but a matter of configuring volumio such that both Android devices can be found.
Finally, notice that it is the first time I have a Pi and never used volumio before. Also, as the Allo DigiOne Signature player is a factory assembled and configured device, I didn’t have to deal with the regular Pi fiddling to install and configure volumio using commands, everything was already there. I only had to plug the device to the network, dac and power, and then open volumio.local in my computer browser to complete volumio config. If solutions require screen commands directly to the Pi card I will be lost since I am absolutely ignorant of all the usual jargon and procedures. So I appreciate soultions that do not require such actions, and if unavoidable, I will also be thankful for clear guidance for an absolute newcomer.
