Spread the love

Version 8.0.2 of moOde audio player has been released. This program turns a Raspberry Pi into a comprehensive music center and can play music files stored on the local network, from Internet radio stations and from various streaming services. The player can be controlled via a web browser or mobile device and there is support for a large number of DACs, so that the music can also be played in high quality. The changelog for this release looks like this:

Highlights

  • Add force_eeprom_read=0 to /boot/config.txt for all Hifiberry cards
    This prevents the Raspberry Pi firmware from reading the card’s EEPROM based dtoverlay which may conflict with dtoverlay in /boot/config.txt
  • Add BlueZ Config SCAN options and longer trust time
    There are two scan options: SCAN (Default) which scans for only BR/EDR devices and SCAN (Include LE devices) which scans for both BR/EDR and LE devices. The trust time for un-paired devices listed in the scan results has been increased from 30 seconds to 90 seconds.
  • Add new options to moodeutl for scanning Samba networks The new options are:
    • c Detect highest CIFS protocol version [host or ip address]
    • C Detect CIFS shares [host or ip address]
    • n Detect NBT (Samba) hosts
      There is also a new option for resetting Bluetooth to off in case a Pi is rebooted with Bluetooth on but no Bluetooth adapter present which causes moOde startup to fail and the system appear to hang.
    • -breset Reset Bluetooth to off
  • Fix bad path in moodeutl for the -u/-U “check station URL” options
  • Fix expected scan on/off responses in bt.sh SCAN() function
