I have the same problem (I think).
I run a rPi4 through emotive stealth DAC to my amp. Headless through my Mac or iPad. I only stream; no NAD etc.
Had been doing great, but then I never shut down Volumio.
Today I thought it might be a good idea to do so, so I tried using the Volumio IU, resulting in the wheel of death …
I had to shut down power to the rPi, turn it back on and then log back on through volumio.local, which worked fine.
After trying the UI shut down again, and experiencing the same result another two times, the music streaming is now stuttering/skipping…
To complicate matters, as it is for many, having to enable SSH and enter or change commands is a terrifying concept.
- why is the UI interface volumio shut-down process freezing and what do I do to get it to work?
- is the fact that my music is now skipping and stuttering a sign that the hard boots of my Pi has corrupted it or the SD card?
