Sonicorbiter - Shairport output mode

Not sure what your issue is.  I just fired up the app switcher and changed from Roon to Shairport.  My iPhone 7 Plus sees the microRendu in Airplay mode and I am streaming to it right now.  Works just fine for me.

I'm not sure what the issue is, either. An Apple TV plugged into the same Ethernet connection shows up immediately.

Except it is limited in sampling rate to 48KHz. You cannot use Audirvana with up sampling in this setup.

 

With the Airport Express, it is only 16/44.1k but bit perfect output with Redbook files. Optimum for use with my Yggy. 

 

Apple TV is limited to 16/48k only and is not bit perfect for Redbook files.

Hey anyone know why Shairport won't work after upgrading to 2.5?  I installed the Shairport app, activated it, restarted everything, but still non of my apps like Tidal (on iOS) will not recognize it anymore like it used to with version 2.3

I'm having the same issue, I don't use it often, but it always worked with previous version.  Doesn't show up with 2.5.

 

Best,

I just installed it and Roon sees it just fine. Did you go into Settings/Shairport and press Save?

Yes, several times.  My Apple TV shows up but the rendu does not.  I have reset every link in the path at some point ( I haven't reset the router, I will try that next).

 

Thanks,

Ed

Is there any chance you're not looking for it in the right place? If you're on IOS 11 it's not under Screen Mirroring which for me was the obvious place to look when I first switched to it. The Apple TV shows up there but to select the uRendu you hold down the Music box and then in the upper right corner of the box that opens is a button that reveals where the Rendu is selected. It wasn't very intuitive for me to find it the first time which surprised me because usually Apple is a little better about such things.

Thats embarrassing, thanks Daverich4.  I was unaware it had moved.  Works great!

I just installed my UltraRendu and is successful at streaming from Apple iTunes on my Mac Mini to Shairport. 

 

Can I stream YouTube videos on Safari the same way? I can’t seem to find a way to Airplay this to Shairport from the Mac Mini. 

 

Thanks 

Gary

The next step up is the ultraRendu.

Yes. Set your Rendu to Shairport then go to System Preferences/Sound and choose your Rendu as the output device. You can ignore the Airplay option that’s under the YouTube window. That should do it.

Thanks for tip. It worked! Only thing is sometimes when I select another video I get a “ ultrarendu is in use” message and sends the sound output back to the Mac internal speakers. I have to go into System Preferences to select output by ultrarendu again.
