Volumio 3 RC1 - Open Beta Testing

@gvolt

yep details then selecting 3.3.1 did the trick.
Moved remark with regards to the touch part to https://community.volumio.org/t/plugin-touch-display/ topic.

Geen idee, zou volgens my zo moeten werken

Hi Forum & Developers!
My System: Fresh Installed 3.152 on RPi3b+, HifiBerry DAC +, enabled SSH and plugin test mode

My Questions / Findings
- Boot time seems to be faster then with 2.x or 3.096 - great!
- How can I autostart a stream? I want to use the volumio as a headless radio - power on & play latest radio stream. As the plugin from 2.x is unavailable - is there a built-in option in Volumio3buster? Checking the “repeat” option in the playlist does not work - I always have to start a browser, load webinterface, hit play button.
- How can I change the background pictures? Uploading images (PNG, JPG) does not work with upload dialog / drag&drop with latest Firefox and Edge. Even worse: After reboot also deleted stock images are back again! (Tested with modern look and classic look, language switched to German)

Thank you for the work (… and hopefully answers)
Chris

updated via ota, everything works on a khadas tone 1 except radio paradise music runs but no sound.

Have you tried disabling these to check if the issue comes from there?

# volumio plugin list ---------------

This command will list installed plugins on your device

----------------------- Installed Plugins:
[
  {
    prettyName: 'Contemporary advanced',
    name: 'contemporary_advanced',
    category: 'miscellanea',
    version: '1.0.2',
    icon: 'fa-lightbulb-o',
    isManuallyInstalled: true,
    enabled: true,
    active: true
  },
  {
    prettyName: 'PeppyMeter Screensaver',
    name: 'peppy_screensaver',
    category: 'miscellanea',
    version: '1.3.0',
    icon: 'fa-lightbulb-o',
    isManuallyInstalled: true,
    enabled: true,
    active: true
  },

I disabled those two plugins and radio Paradise works fine again.

by the way also a problem with the youtube cast receiver plugin when i have these two plugins on, it is very difficult to get connection via the yoube cast receiver, sometimes it takes 5 mminutes to connect and sometimes the youtube cast receiver switches just off after a reboot.

Thank you for making CD playback work again! Unfortunately, the buttons for ripping are still missing. And very important, the drive rotates far too fast during playback. It’s so loud that you can’t really use it. Apparently there is no speed limit. I checked it again with the same hardware and current Volumio: The drive runs quietly with 2.916. With new beta 3.152 it is very loud.

Besides, a comment: Navigating through the new GUI seems to me to be quite cumbersome. For example: Try going through all the sub-items of the configuration menu. Takes a lot of clicks. It is particularly annoying here, but the problem exists in many places. Everything looks nice, but it was easier in eralier versions.

Then I would expect from such a completely renewed version of Volumio that the cover images embedded in FLAC files or similar would finally be displayed. This is so important for a convincing appearance and almost every software available today can do that. I’ve missed that since I’ve known Volumio. Please do that in such a new release, it´s so important!
Also the same thing is very strange with Media Severs, Asset or Twonky etc. Music directories without folder.jpg are only shown with a white circle in the overview. But then the covers of each title are displayed in the respective folder. So in the folder or album the embedded covers of the file are used, but unfortunately the overview remains empty. So if the cover of the first title in the folder were still displayed in the overview, this view would be perfect as it should be.

i have nothing installed only 3.152 and still no sound what version of firmware are you using michel the 2.0?
.

Hello all,
regarding the Atoll DAC100, I saw in journalctl / dmesg logs this : usb_set_interface failed (-110) and mpd.service: Main process exited, code=killed
Log file : http://logs.volumio.org/volumiobuster/AzpHDVG.html
I don’t understand this “random” issue which is occuring in the queue. Perhaps I missed another log that could explain it, I don’t know.
If someone gets an idea, many thanks in advance.

for the tone1 firmware 2.0.

oke we have the same firmware…
i don’t know why the 3.152 wipes my usbstick it did it twice now
i have to recover my stick for now have to wait to play with 3.152 again.

I’ll flash the last volumio3 Volumiobuster-3.152-2021-11-23-pi .beta image on a sd card shortly and see if I’m also experiencing that problem with the khadas tone1.

please be patient and i will let you know.

ok new 3.152 img flashed and everything is ok and plays radio even after reboot, no problem at all.

otherwise no adjustments have been made to the volumio system is completely standard

strange i don’t get it why it’s like this with mine…

maybe try another usbC cable or other micro sd or power supply or other burning program, i used raspberry pi imager with the last one.

one of my power cables was out :slight_smile: the one between bt and speakerset
but that still doesn’t explane the usb ssd wipes…
( i will keep a backup of that stick for now…if it happens again)

Here it worked out of the box, now I can’t get it to work with any setting. Very weird.

It tried:

  • i2s Hifiberry Digi+ Pro → alsa error
  • Reboot → alsa error
  • Snd hifiberry (i2s off) → alsa error
  • Reboot → please set different alsa device

nothing works :frowning:

Edit: as it was broke already I installed latest test version and it worked right after I2s and drop-down selection

Same here, nothing works for me anymore, alsa errors with headphone/HDMI/USB dac so there is zero way to get sound out of my PI currently, im just going to reflash and if it does not aid the situation then i revert back to some old image i know is working with the digi+.

here is a log with some internal error of volumio, alot warnings etc.
http://logs.volumio.org/volumiobuster/kdTA8CW.html

E: The internal error is propably the reason my system is unreachable by hostname aswell.

v.3.152, RPi4

The radio station play buttons are often unresponsive and when a radio station does play, the radio station icon is missing from the playback view.
