We recommend using the shutdown button before removing the power supply. While this usually does not have a great effect on the system, the removal of the power supply while the system is running tasks in the background can lead to future errors.19. September 2016 at 15:03 #23098
I have RPi with M2P working as a server/player and an old SB Touch on the network in another room. I am controlling both with iPeng.
I am thinking about adding another RPi/M2P player only in my workshop, but I only use the workshop about 1 day per week. It seems like a waste of energy to keep the RPi running all the time in the workshop.
