My system: RPI 4, 4GB, Volumio version: 2.882; library on external USB HDD; DAC S.M.S.L. M100 MKII.
My settings: mixer type NONE, I have a pre.
My habits: shuffle everything.
-Volume normalization/replaygain: the first is costantly adjusting on the fly making the experience a farce, the latter is problably something out of my brain’s reach… I read all the topics about but still I can’t get it to work properly. As it’s not implemented in Volumio, I had to use competitor’s SW to analyze my complete library and set the tags. What happens is that in other players library is just fine, in Volumio is not. If normalization is OFF, MP3 files are soundless other formats are OK, if it’s ON replaygain settings are somehow bypassed… unenjoable (and not very audiophile).
-Library scan at startup, impossible to skip. I tried all the “[SOLVED]” solutions but no luck, so far it’s not huge but it’s growing.
-Sometimes, not always and completely randomic, after a while that there is no interaction between humans and Volumio, the system becomes unreacheable, from official app, from web app, not even possible to ping it; I’m positive my network is OK.
As much as I love my music collection, sometimes I’d like to skip and or repeat a track or search for a specific one without restarting.
-Autostart 1.1.2 plugin: not a big issue but works only when moon is high AND I wear grey socks… Unreliable.
There are actually some other minor issues but I’m confident they’ll eventually be corrected.
I really like Volumio for it’s sound presentation, especially on selected radios or good files.
I’d appreciate if someone could help me despite my lack of linux skills.
