When you are a paying user of Volumio, you might expect some support and/or responses to posts. But hey, my keyboard is very patient. So here we go:
- Make Volumio boot from USB on Raspberry Pi devices. (the bootcode.bin option could be something you can look into!)
- If there is a large stack of music, and the user uses NFS, why don’t you store the Database on that NFS? First of all, this will be there, still after a crash of the Volumio Pi, and it saves users like me, a lot of time to “re-scan” the files and re-fill the database. (Which takes about 6 hours for MY music archive!)
- Make an option where you can actually choose where you want to store your configs? NFS/USB/Whatever. This way, you make re-installations a lot more easy.
Why these suggestions? Now, everytime I add new songs to my stash of music, and do a rescan, that ends up in a full re-install of the Volumio SD card, and start with a full scan of my stash. If I don’t do it this way, I end up with a frozen, unwilling to restart Volumio system.
For your info: Above happens on:
- Pi Zero W
- Pi 3B+
- Pi 4 4GB
So, this is not an issue with the hardware. This is truly a design issue.
Please fix this?
