I installed volumio on my Raspberry Pi/Hifiberry Dac Pro+, and it seems to work well. However, getting control of it isn’t working like I think it should.
On initial setup (connected via ethernet cable to my router) I switched off the hotspot options. Connected to my in house wifi. Unplugged the ethernet cable, attach to stereo (and a ssd drive). Try to access the unit via normal wifi - no go. I see a new volumio hot spot, so I connect to it, and it works great. I think “that’s odd, with hotspot turned off, I have a hotspot. Maybe if i turn hotpot back on, I can access it via normal wifi”. So I do so, and can’t connect at all. So I repeat the set up I did originally, turn off hotspot, and it’s back to working, but only if I log out of my normal wifi and internet and into the volumio hotspot. (edit: there may be some mistake in this paragraph - my memory may be doing tricks. I’m pretty sure the hotspot on/off settings are actually working the way they should be)
So how can I set this up so I can access the player via my normal wifi? I.E. have volumio running in a tab, and be able to do other internet type stuff at the same time? Surely there’s a way to do this.
Edit: I should add that it’s a raspberry pi 3B, and I’ve installed whatever the newest version of volumio that was available as of 3 days ago. And I’m trying to access it with a macbook pro and/or my iphone and ipad, none of which can connect (except via the volumio hotspot), even though fing is showing it at 192.168.1.145. And it’s a AT&T Uverse router based wifi network.
