    Hi,

    A new version of knob.sh is available for download and testing at
    http://moodeaudio.org/downloads/knob.sh.zip

    This version supports mute toggle and volume stepping to better support IR remotes.

    Examples:

    /var/www/knob.sh 10
    /var/www/knob.sh mute (this will toggle the mute state)
    /var/www/knob.sh up 3
    /var/www/knob.sh down 3

    Regards,
    Tim

    Hi,

    Nice! I'll add a description for the dac to Moode 2.4 audio device database.

    Hi,
    finally I had some time testing, and I found a couple of things.

    When I went from playback via Airplay to normal playback the sound was distorted, and it turned out that the ALSA volume was now at 100, not at the normal 40.

    When I add my complete library to the playlist, moode (or the browser I use) becomes very slow and sometimes completely unresponsive.

    Is this known problems?

    Hi,

    Yes they are known issues, and I think I may have good solutions for them :-)

    (1) The Airplay receiver controls ALSA volume directly and does not go through MPD volume control so we end up with separate volumes. Ii's on my to-do list for Moode 2.5 to save Moode volume setting before Airplay starts then restore it after Airplay finishes.

    (2) Since Playlist resides in Browser memory, the UI will become sluggish if an entire collection is loaded into the Playlist for example for random play. Moode 2.4 will have a setting to turn off the Playlist.

    Regards,
    Tim

    Dear TimCurtis,
    I'm new to Raspberry Pi 2.
    I just downloaded and installed moOde. Internet radio is working and I don't have problems with red books and Hi-res files. They sounds great! Great work! I also manage do disable volume control (I'm using integrated amplifier with volume control).
    I have problem with DSD. My USB DAC: LKS MH-DA003 supports DSD64,128,256 in native which I was able to test with PC/Foobar.
    With MoOde option "DSD audio support yes" DAC is reporting "DSD 64" on the screen without problems but "DSD 256" are not working. I can see "PCM384K" on the screen and silence. After switching 'DSD audio support no" I can play and hear all DSD files but they are converted to PCM which is reported by DAC as "PCM384K".

    I found that my DAC requires windows driver (probably Amanero) to play DSD 256 and DSD 512 over USB. Can it be the source of the problem? For reference: Musound(L.K.S Audio)


    I found "Audio device description" in "Customize" Menu but my DAC is not on the list.

    Hi,

    I'll add "LKS MH-DA003" to the audio device database for Moode 2.4 release, then you will be able to select it from the Customize menu and it will appear in the Audio Information popup :-)

    The wording and help text for "DSD audio support" needs updating but here is what it means:

    (1) Yes = Send native DSD if device driver supports it, otherwise send DSD over PCM (DoP). If DAC does not support DoP there may be no sound or distorted sound!

    (2) No = Send native DSD if device driver supports it, otherwise perform DSD to PCM on-the-fly conversion and send PCM.

    I'll clean up the wording for release 2.4

    Regards,
    Tim

    I received Gustard U12 usb converter.
    It’s plug’n’play, No need of driver installation, works perfectly and sounds great

    Hi Tim,
    Thank you for the LKS support!
    Going back to the problem. I'm able to play DSD 64 files with "yes". I'm not sure how they are moving to DAC. Probably as DoP but it's impossible to check. I'm not able to play DSD 256. In the mean time I verified that Volumio has the same problem with DSD 256. I was able to play DSD64 with DoP ON (there is separate line for this option). Can it be that some kind of Amanero driver is required to play native and I will not be able to play DSD256 with Raspberry Pi 2?

    Which android controller is the best to use with moOde? I was trying Buble DS but moOde didn't appear in menu. Probably requires some extra settings.


    michelemezza, thank you for input. How you are transporting data to DAC? I2S? Can it handle DSD? Today I made I2s cable and connected between moOde and LKS DAC. I specified in i2s moOde settings "general". It's working for PCM up to 24/192! But it doesn't with DSD...

    Hi Tribon,
    currently I'm transporting data using AESEBU cable. My DAC is an old but still excellent PS Audio SL Three that accepts only 44.1
    At the moment my music collection is only 44.1 format based on my cd copies.
    I'm thinking about accomplish the "big step" to high res files with a new DAC using I2S connection.

    As far android controller is concerned, you can use Mupeace or even easier the web UI on your android browser

    Hi,

    After I get Moode release 2.4 out the door in the next day or two I'll spend some time on the DSD issues and try to determine what is needed to resolve them.

    Tim

    I'm curious, how did you pick the new defaults? I'm trying to get high bitrate streaming working smoothly on my slightly lacklustre WiFi connection and I'd be interested to see if tweaking these values would help.

    Cheers for the update by the way! Particularly enjoying the DAC+ Pro support.

    Hi Tim.
    Thank you for update. Just downloaded and now listening to music. Quick and easy!
    Going back to DSD256 I got such info on another forum from b0bb:
    "DSD on the RPi is via DSD-Over-PCM (DoP) and it tops out at DSD128. DoP passthru requires ALSA hardware passthru, how that is done is player specific, Squeezelite uses the following command squeezelite-armv6hf -o hw:Amanero
    There are experimental patches for the RPi Linux kernel for native DSD that is not encapsulated in PCM and for DSD256 and above but nothing official"

    Hi,

    Good info, thanks.

    It looks like native DSD support for MPD based players like Moode requires three pieces:

    (1) Linux kernel with support for native DSD in USB driver. Kernel 4.1.10+ is ok.
    (2) ALSA version 1.0.29
    (3) MPD 0.19.x series recompiled against ALSA 1.0.29 libs + MPD requires an additional patch

    Eventually #2 and #3 will make their way into mainline Linux and MPD but ahead of that I'll see if I can put something together for a Moode test release :-)

    Regards,
    Tim

    Thanks for the update Tim, although everything was already working fine.

    I had to reboot after changing the system configuration and selecting the output device (Digi+) otherwise it wasn't detected. Otherwise all fine.

    That would be nice. I'm ready for tests.
