    Hi

    I have a Pi 4 with TerraMaster DAS running just LMS and Squeezelite. The DAS is running continually even when LMS and Squeezelite are stopped and only goes quiet when the PI is shutdown. Is this expected behaviour? I have some idea that it used not to behave like this when first set up.

    Thanks

    David.

    Hi David,

    Playback should stop when the LMS shuts down or Squeezelite stops. Please remove the autostart of Squeezelite and LMS and then try again.

    Hi

    Thanks for the response.

    I’m not sure what you mean. Playback stops as one would expect . Disks carry on running.

    If I disable auto-start on those two applications then nothing has changed. If I then restart the Pi I get a Pi that is doing nothing useful but still has running discs. I’m not sure what we have learnt from this?

    Regards

    David

    Hi David,

    I probably misunderstood you. Which discs are you talking about exactly? Is the TerraMaster a network storage or a DAC? How should it relate to the Pi?

    Hi

    Its Direct Attached Storage(DAS) – a device like NAS but connected via USB to the Pi and the music library sits on that. It not formatted as RAID.

    Does that help?

    Thanks

    Hi David,

    Thank you for the explanation. I assume you are using our Buster image with the Pi 4? If a hard disk is connected, it should shut down after about 10 minutes of inactivity. I could imagine that something is still accessing the disks that prevents them from going into sleep mode. Are the drives only accessible for the Pi or also via a share page in the network?
