I have newly discovered Volumio and successfully installed it to a 2TB drive in a Shuttle fanless PC, running headless. Doing the on-disc install was a doddle: I simply told it to install to disk after booting from a USB stick and it worked. I pulled the stick, rebooted and up it came.
I connect my KEF LSX speakers through a high quality USB to optical SPDIF adaptor using an optical switch so that the television sound can also use the single optical port on the speakers.
I’m very impressed with the sound quality, although I’m less than happy with the Volumio control app in the cramped confines of my Android phone’s screen. I tried to nick my wife’s large screen tablet but she wasn’t having any of that. Overall, a very positive start.
I have a personal music store shared from my main PC which the system interrogates perfectly, but I want to transfer my music files onto the internal disc of the little Shuttle PC and I cannot find instructions for doing that, or even if it’s possible.
Can anyone help - do I have to use a terminal and change the partitioning of my HDD or what?
