Hi @mervinio ,
thanks for the new version and for all the bugs that have been fixed!
I just tested beta version Volumio-3.378-2022-09-30-x86_amd64.img
My impression is there is still work to do…
- Scan of the locally attached and network files is still not 100% stable.
- Local UI on HDMI does not work after the first startup. After a second reboot it’s working well.
- HDMI playback with bitrates above 48k is still hacking the first 5-10 seconds of every file. Playback over SPDIF is perfectly running on high bitrates.
- Player is restarted every time after uploading a UI background image (strange! where is the correlation here? some misplaced trigger?).
- Playback options are not 100% stable after a reboot is done.
- Some translation texts are missing in the UI.
Anyway, that’s the nature of a beta phase - detecting and hopefully eliminating such issues.
Here comes my detailled test report with several logs - each done after the described phenomenon.
After first boot from USB stick (not update the internal SSD):
startup sound at first boot
WEB UI is working.
local UI (HDMI) is completely white, mouse pointer is visible and reacting, but there’s no UI.
An at first boot time attached USB stick with music files is not scanned automatically . I had to start an “update” at “Sources”.
the playback does work (tried webradio, TIDAL, TIDALconnect, network drive and local music lib).
index of local files (music library) scan or update does work.
index of network volumes (music library) scan or update does work.
automount local new plugged media does work.
newly plugged local usb media have to be scanned manually.
SPDIF ok, but there is sometimes a little cnack when switching manually from track to track
HDMI 44.1k and 48. sync ok
HDMI higher bitrates (everything above 48k) is hacking the first 5-10 seconds of the file.
High resolution files sound broken over the first 5-10 seconds (MP3 96 kHz 32 bit, WAV 96 kHz 32 bit, WAV 192 kHz 32 bit, WAV 352.8 kHz 32 bit, DSD 2.82 MHz 1 bit, DSD 5.64 MHz 1 bit, DSD 11.28 MHz 1 bit, flac 96 kHz 24 bit, ) This error occurs when high sync rates (higher than 48k) on the HDMI bus appear.
analogue out ok (SPDIF stays “on”)
Testfiles ok, various formats and resolutions mp3(44.1, 48kHz @ 16bit 24bit), flac(44.1, 48, 96, 192kHz @ 16bit 24bit), wav(44.1, 48, 96, 192, 352.8kHz @ 32bit), DSD (2.82, 5.64MHz @ 1bit)
myVolumio ok (user level: Superstar)
Qobuz not tested
music lib index ok (artists, albums, tracks, playtime)
ssh / logs ok
plugin not tested
local UI after first startup of the image - not ok
local UI after a second reboot - ok
WEB UI ok
background image upload ok
restart of the player every time I upload a new background image - not ok
USB automount ok
WLAN not tested
Network Drives ok
update not tested
startup sound ok
alarm not tested
sleep ok (stop music and power down)
There was a spontaneous restart of the player after 24 minutes uptime
The player does perform a restart every time I upload a new background image
After 3 player restarts the local music library is lost.
… and update or restart the scan is no longer possible.
After a volumio reboot the local UI is working and local library is back.
Some i18n translations are still missing. Navigate from Tidal “My Music” to an artist - you miss all the translation texts in the UI
After a volumio restart (following the “sleep power down”) the playback wasn’t possible - I had to reconfigure the playback options to make it working again.
