Having problems with MPD so decided to give this a go. Seem to have installed and set everything as per the first post with no trouble.

I've installed the official app for Android but it says "Your player was not found". I'm guessing I'm missing some other steps here?

Have you got the squeezecenter (sp?) server running successfully somewhere to talk to the squeezelite?

I thought it would similar to the Volumio GUI once installed. i.e. I'd point it to my NAS etc and get it going from there.

That'll teach me to read about things first!

Dakku - this is amazing - thank you for this tutorial. I have been struggling with the 1.2 beta of volumio but have now got it working reasonably well. I have Logitech media server running on my Ubuntu server made out of an old PC and the controller apps on my ipad and android phone. I installed squeezeboxlite following your guidelines and I find the sound is so much better than MPD. I can still hear some clicks/pops but squeezebox seems to limit these some how so they live far back in the sound field.
Thanks again JCHNanty

What sound hardware have you got? I have no trouble with clicks and pops at all using hifiberry.

I have an Audioengine D1 which connects via USB it works brilliantly when connected to my PC. I'm guessing from what I've read that i2c is the connection to use but as I already have this I'm not planning on changing. when I first started trying this with the Pi (using Raspyfi) I found that depending on how I connected it all (using a powered USB hub) made a difference but I haven't played around with that yet. At the moment I've connected my WiPi dongle and my DAC to the Pi's USB's so I think I need to spend some time trying different configurations. I've always had pops and clicks (even using a cat5 connection) so perhaps I have an early version of the Pi (B) (or a dodgy one!). I'm not that bothered by the pops and clicks as I'm of an age where I grew up with Vinyl (and 78's :D) so I'm used to it!

Cheers, JCHNanty
