I finally went down the Raspberry Pi Route and gave up running LMS on my Synology NAS. I’m using a Raspberry Pi 3B with max2play. Everything works fine (although everything is quite a bit slower than it was on my Intel Synology NAS).
Only the Spotty menus sometimes are really annoyingly slow… When searching for an artist and then browsing artist and albums sometimes I have to wait up to 15 seconds to see the results. In the LMS Webinterface and in iPeng it is samesame – both are slow. Sometimes there’s timeouts.
I don’t think I’m doing something wrong here – the setup of the Pi is fresh, new and still shiny even. I’m resizing cover art locally on LMS, I’m not using mysqueezebox.com for resizing of cover art.
Is this ‘speed’ normal? Can it be improved somehow?27. October 2017 at 21:32 #32164
No, the Spotify Connect feature is not activated.
This is what the Health Checker says, when playing Tunes via Spotty:
Internet: Connected CPU Load: 0.59 SD Card Usage: 19% Temp CPU: 51.0 Power Supply: OK
I checked the waiting times when navigation through the Spotty menus, in bold what takes (felt) too long:
Click on Spotty Icon <2 seconds
Click on search Icon <2 seconds
Type artist, enter <2 seconds
Click on artist 6 seconds, rather long
Click on name of artist 6 seconds, rather long
Click on albums 7 seconds, rather long
Click on name of album <2 seconds
Time until album starts playing 5 seconds
If you experience the same load time when clicking on artist and albums everything is fine. The last couple of days I didn’t experience any timeouts anymore. Maybe I’m just spoiled by the speed of the Spotify app…30. October 2017 at 12:59 #32182
6-7 seconds is indeed a little too long waiting for a menu. You might be able to shave off a few seconds with the regular 7.9 version of LMS.
However, the wait might also just be related to the connection to Spotify with librespot.
You could try out the Connect feature to see whether the latency remains.
