I just started with volumio installing 1.55 w/o problems. However using it is a different matter.
Here is my hardware setup:
Rasberry Pi B+ with HiFiberry DAC+
Dual linear power supplies
Edimax USB dongle
I intent to keep it that simple until it will be running fine. Plans are to add a display and an IR-remote. For now I use Firefox on a Linux PC and occasionally an iPhone with Firefox which does not run well (WLAN does not connect easy).
Problem 1: How do I add a radio station?
So far I picked the URL of the stations live stream (http:// station.m3u) and added it into GUI => Browse => WebRadio => [ + ] => [WebRadio]
After clicking ADD it shows up in the WebRadio list, can be selected and reports “added to playlist” . However it does not show up there and will not be played, of course.
So I checked the FAQs but the answer was not very useful. Sorry, I can’t guess what the windows explorer will open and I could not find the subfolder WebRadio scanning the Raspi with ssh. I updated the playlist and did a reboot, all w/o success.
My 2 questions:
How can I manually add a station?
Is this ADD-A-STATION window not yet ready to be used or is all it will/can ever do add an entry to the WebRadio list leaving the rest of the job to hand editing files?
The absolutely positive experience of this project is, that I get an wonderful sound reproduction (on some radio stations and from local storage of course). It is really worth cleaning up the UI…
