    HQ Player

    Hi @Miska, I am using the x64 NAA image and trying to directly connect my NAA pc to my HQPlayer PC via ipv6. I am seeing the link connection via the NIC LEDs, and I also see an ipv6 address on my HQPlayer PC, but since I can not login to the NAA pc, I cannot diagnose why HQPlayer is not seeing the NAA under the ipv6 dropdown box. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot? Is ipv6 enabled on the x64 NAA image? As always, thank you for your help. hammer
  2. To clarify, I see the address on the server 2016 side. I can’t tell on the NAA side since I am running Miska’s x64 NAA image....I believe that has ipv6 activated, right? Thank you again!
  3. I see an ipv6 address for the NIC, but there doesn't seem to be any activity and HQplayer is not seeing the NAA under ipv6 dropdown box. Any ideas? Thanks!
  4. Hi, I'm trying to do the same thing on Server 2016 as my HQPlayer machine. I have a NIC setup for ipv6 only and I am wondering how this NIC gets an ipv6 address if it is just directly connected to my NAA pc. If I need to manually set an address, what should it be and do I need a Default Gateway? Thanks, Hammer

    Hi, I notice that I am unable to connect to my NAA if I have Private Internet Access VPN running. I don't think the issue is being blocked from my local network since I can access my NAS, other PC's etc on my network with VPN enabled. Actually, I can even Putty into the Pi3 running DietPi/NAA from the PC where HQPlayer is running. Maybe it's a timing issue and HQPlayer does not wait sufficient time for NAA to respond if VPN is running (eg., it needs to go through more routes - just as guess since I am no networking expert! Any ideas? Thanks!

    In trying to keep electrical noise away from my system, I keep my main PC with an nVidia card for CUDA and HQPlayer in my basement and connect that to my DAC via a NUC running NAA. I recently found a driverless USB extender and tried connecting my basement PC directly with my Vega DAC. To my surprise, my basement PC recognized the DAC and it works! However, I find that SQ has declined. Not by a lot, but enough for me to switch back to my prior setup. My question is why? On my Vega DAC there is an option for Exact USB mode which requires very tight timing with the source. I am able to run the DAC with the extender in Exact mode no problem and so it would appear the bits are arriving to the DAC without issue. There is also an Uptone regent in the chain. So more of a curiosity question if anyone has any insights....I know we can blame it on jitter, but doesn’t a Femto clock in the DAC counter that?

    Is it possible to stream Spotify output to HQPlayer? Reason is because my DAC is connected to a small Intel PC running the x64 NAA image and I listen to HQPlayer/Roon most of the time. I find that this gives me the best SQ, but every once in a while, it is nice to be able to play something from Spotify. DietPi with NAA and Raspotify will accomplish this, but the current DietPi image does not include support for my Auralic Vega DAC which means I won’t be able to play DSD natively with this solution. And suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

    Thanks. DoP doesn't seem to work with the Vega after my upgrade to DSD256 firmware. So I am hoping the kernel patch will be applied. Does anyone know what is required? Maybe I can try to gather that to make it easier for the developer @Daniel Knight Thank you!

    Are you using the Vega DAC? My very limited understanding is that the DAC has to be supported by the kernel.on a ProJect S2. But not on the Vega.

    Thank you! I tried DSD512 with a Pi3 on a ProJect S2 and that seems to work and so I think the Pi3 hardware is sufficient...so maybe DietPi just needs the patches. I hope this makes it to the “to do” list! Thank you!

    Hi everyone! I’m using the x64 NAA image from the signalyst website and it works great with my Auralic Vega DAC. However, I would like to add Spotify to my main system and so I figured I would try DietPi (with a Pi 3 B) which combines NAA and Raspotify in one image. However, I find that with DietPi, I am unable to get HQPlayer to play DSD (SDM is no longer an output option). This was possible with the x64 NAA image. Would anyone know how I might fix this? Thank you.

    A question on upsampling to DSD512 with HQPlayer. I see that when I play a PCM file, it upsamples no problem. However, when I play a DSD64 file, the output remains DSD64. Is that by design? (The source is from Roon, if that plays into the equation at all). Thank you!

    I did try, but didn't know how to turn on IPv6 in HQPlayer...

    Hi, my apologies if this has been previously answered...I tried to search, but did not find a solution. I am running HQPlayer on a Windows 10 machine and for a variety of reasons, this machine has multiple NIC's and I am trying to get HQPlayer to "see" an NAA on my 192.168.1.xxx subnet. Is it possible to "direct" HQPlayer to only search this subnet? I know the NAA on my network is working since I can "see" it on another instance of HQPlayer. Thank you.
