    Connecting raspberry pi to network

    On the Pi, the ethernet and USB share the same bus, which reduces available data bandwidth. The Pi can handle DSD64 just fine over Ethernet, but I had issues going up to DSD128.

    Reset USBridge to factory settings?

    Thanks for the help, but I ended up using an extra SD card to create a fresh OS install, copy over a new disk image from a USB key to the eMMC, then start over from scratch. For devices that are supposed to be turnkey, making this network change required a significant amount of Unix knowledge. Thankfully it's all back to normal. I did waste 20 minutes on the USB vs. USB1.1 DAC setting. @Daniel Knight can you add some explanatory text in the AlloGUI dropdown that USB 1.1 is for older devices and plain USB is for newer ones? Even though I know this, my lizard brain still picked 1.1 because it's "higher" than no number.
  3. My network changed rather significantly (new Xfinity router means all NAT and static IPs changed). I had my USBridge configured with a static IP address on 10.0.1.X, but my new network is 10.0.0.X and so my USBridge won't seem to connect to the new network. How do I reset it to factory defaults so it goes back to DHCP so I can connect to it again? @Allo please help!

    BOSS capacitor touches RPi heat sink? Should I worry?

    @Allo Is this a concern?

    So you're saying that elevated temp is normal?

    Allo Sparky USBridge

    @Allo What is the normal temp? Mine is running at 52C, which is "running warm, but safe". My RPi with a BOSS hat is only running at 40C, which is "optimum". This is not streaming/playing anything (idle except for my ssh), and the RPi is currently streaming via RAAT. This seems high and worries me.

    @Allo any response?

    Allo Sparky USBridge

    Just got mine installed and it's all working great (even after updating). However I have two questions: 1) What is the normal temp? Mine is running at 52C, which is "running warm, but safe". My RPi with a BOSS hat is only running at 40C, which is "optimum". This is not streaming/playing anything (idle except for my ssh), and the RPi is currently streaming via RAAT. 2) When I type "alsamixer" at the command-line, I get "cannot open mixer: No such file or directory". That seems odd, is something misconfigured? It plays just fine. -mike
  9. Just got my new BOSS and when I put it on the RPi3, I found that it doesn't seat completely because the capacitor on the bottom of the board hits the heat sink on the RPi. It still works fine, but I'm concerned about these two metal parts touching for long periods of time. Will that short anything? Will that be dangerous? Will it cause any problems with the two boards touching like this? -mike

    Power supply for Boss and RPi?

    I’m looking to replace the stock RPi power supply when adding a Boss to it. The Boss specs say 5V 3A to connect directly via usbC, but most people are running the *combined* RPi and Boss with the stock supply which is only 5V 2A, or the iPower which is 5V 2A as well. This is seems to not match up with the requirements of the board alone. What are people doing? Am I misunderstanding?

    Yes, created an account, added to cart, checked out, and suggested shipping went from $22 to $24. Only choices were FedEx and some other company. This is for a USBridge. I'll DM you.

    Um, when I created an account and went to choose shipping, the price went up!! It’s now $24 to ship. So what is going on here?

    Went to go buy one.... $22 for shipping. That's highway robbery. What the heck is it wrapped in!?

    Google Music streaming

    Just for sake of completeness, on iOS you can stream to AirPlay devices as well as Chromecast devices. I know the OP has an Android phone, but didn't want to mislead for others who might read this. -mike
  15. You're right, sorry. I meant DLNA.
