Hi Christoph,
I’m sorry, but this is not true. To test it, I set up a new Raspberry Pi 2 with a Hifiberry Amp + and Max2Play latest version.
I’m using a Editmax Wifi stick. The only thing that differs from the system described above is the display. I did not use or attach a display.
I used the same harddrive as above. Works perfectly!
So I assume the power supply has got to do with the display. As it does not consume this much power, I’m really hoping I can use a harddrive additionally.
Appreciate any help how to make this possible.
Many tanks and best regards
