Re: sudo service mpd restart

Yes, autostart was always a pain in the ass... :P I'm also more or less newbie in Linux and i'm running Lubuntu, but maybe my solution helps you: With the last version (13.10) Lubuntu changed the autostart to a very easy mode. You just have to open the file "/home/<user>/.config/lxsession/Lubuntu/au...

Re: sudo service mpd restart

Yes, strange behaviour....
Is it possible that you have two MPD's running simultaneously? Or maybe another audio-application?

Re: sudo service mpd restart

Have you tried

"sudo service mpd stop"
and then
"sudo service mpd start"
?
Maybe its just a problem of timing?

Re: Best distro for MPD

I prefere Lubuntu, its slimmer than Ubuntu. But all in all the distro should not make big differences, the settings in the mpd.conf and the Linux-soundsystem are the important things. Beside MPD i also run XBMC on my media-pc. And this was the main reason why i changed from Ubuntu to Lubuntu. With t...

Re: which repositories for MPD?

I can confirm, that DSD is working again. So i can keep my 2cents with me. :) I still think that DSD-playback is under heavy constructions: It's true, that dsf and dff-files can be played back BUT only files with DSD are played. Files with DST-content (stereo or multichannel) are totally ignored. I ...

Re: which repositories for MPD?

Hmmm, so you say, there are no repositories for the current stable version? Sounds strange to me. But for now i can leave it with 0.19 - the version is working again. :) And of course there is support for multichannel - over HDMI you can listen perfect 5.1. Only 4.0 is not supported. I think, i will...

Re: which repositories for MPD?

Thanks for the answer! But are you sure? The version-number on the site you give me is 0.17.4-3. It seems that the current version is 0.18.5. And the unstable (currently not running) version which i got is 0.19. So I think the best thing to do, is to get version 0.18.5. But it seems not to be easy t...

which repositories for MPD?

Hi there, i think, i have chosen the wrong repositories for MPD: ppa:gmpc-trunk/mpd-trunk This is a little too progressive for me - with the last update yesterday, MPD does not work anymore with my Lubuntu-system... :? It's version 0.19. The version which comes with Lubuntu on the other hand is tota...

Maybe Dop is enabled by default? :?:

Cannot check this, because i don't have a Dop-DAC.

Re: DSD over HDMI...

@Ran: Did you try to play-back dff-files or dsf-multichannel-files? I think i have the latest mpd-version, but here only dsf-stereo-files work properly. MPD does not find the other ones in the same directory?! And i still think that DoP is only a workaround till a better solution is found. My AVR ha...

Re: multichannel-bug in mpd?

ok,
and here is the reason:
Nov 15 00:53 : pcm_convert: "HDMI" [alsa] failed to filter: Conversion from 4 to 6 channels is not implemented
This is, what the log-file says.

Re: DSD over HDMI...

Hmmm,
it seems there is still a long way to go...

As i'm testing the DSD-functionality, it looks to me, that dsf-stereo-files are the only ones, which work?
Dsf-multichannel, dff-stereo and dff-multichannel do not.
At least here. Is there any improvement planned?

Re: multichannel-bug in mpd?

If somebody is interested in fixing this bug:

4.0 is still not working, when i play it over hdmi, but when i play it over SPDIF it's working correct. Only in stereo, of course. ;)
Strange, isn't it :?:

It can fetch cover art from the web and from a local web server. Hmmm, this, e.g. is for me a point of criticism. I have my covers as cover.jpg in every folder and i would prefer to use these pictures. And i have also jpg's for back-cover and inside-cover.... But i know, live is not a picnic. :D So...

Re: best mobile-client for mpd...

Thanks for the advice! So i guess, that it will be the best to get an android device. At least there are 3 different clients. For Win8/RT there is only one, which looks not to good... :roll: MPDroid looks quite fine on the screenshots, i will see, how it turns out in reality. But I'm sure it won't b...

Re: best mobile-client for mpd...

Oh... kind of quiet here... is this forum still alive? Or does nobody use a mpd-client on a mobile device? To me it looks like the only solution to use my music-collection in a practicable manner. And for that i'm wondering, why there are only so few and limited apps available. Nobody with similar t...

DSD over HDMI...

Hi there! Just a short question about mpd and DSD: I know, that there is a possibility to transmit a DSD-stream over DOP with mpd. But this solution is not really satisfying to my opinion for 2 reasons: the DAC's you can use for DOP are very, very expensive and it's only for 2 channels. Multichannel...

multichannel-bug in mpd?

Hi there! Just a short question about multichannel with mpd: I run mpd on a Lubuntu-system with alsa-output over HDMI. Surround-sound works perfect with 5.1-flac-pcm-files. The problem comes with 4.0 files. It seems that mpd cannot playback this files?! Other software, e.g. VLC or XBMC, does not hav...
