Does this effect the other architectures as well? i.e. do we need some new packages from fluffy?

I'm still trying to determine that, but no I don't think so.  I believe I have a disconnect between the logic in MakeRelease and ConfirmDeps, and I do not believe this shows in the package depends.  I will verify this evening and report on irc.

I'll get a list together tonight and meet you on irc.

Not yet, I'll be updating and testing this weekend!

Bad package data caused ConfirmDependencies to pull in a package that removed pluto-orbiter.  If you sqlcvs update the dce table you should not have this problem again.

Please feel free to add to the existing launch script and submit svn diff patches to trac.  I don't plan on doing any pulse support directly until the backend of the system supports it.  That being said, if you want it for this device provide patches to trac to add that functionality without breaking anything existing.

Is everything else working as expected with the squeezelite players?

Thanks for the testing!  I am running some experiments to figure out where the problem is, I'll update you when I have had a chance to do so.

No idea what is up.  No issues here.  apt-cache policy pluto-orbiter just to be sure.

Let me know if you have any issues with the screens, everything is mostly good here but I have yet to add the Bind to Remote commands which may cause some undesired input switching until I can get those added.

I still think it be nice if you add a proper description to the devices (maybe even the room).

Um?  No.  You can edit the device and describe it any way you would like, just like every other device in the system.

And an optional pulsesink selection. I did both in the code I posted previously (not the room though)

Heh.  Ok.  I don't see any code or feature patches to support pulseaudio anywhere in the system in trac anywhere.  And since we don't support pulseaudio I will not add specific pulseaudio code until the system supports it.  That being said: Have you even tried it?  Have you put your pulse:sink name in as the output device?  I don't think you've even tried it and from the squeezelite documentation it appears that it should work as is.

Look, I'm getting really frustrated that you that certain people continually complain about things without actually trying to do much of anything about it.  I work *really* hard here *for free* to try and support all kinds of things for people, including things that I don't use like the damn squeezeslave/squeezelite players.   So thanks for testing, I'm glad you're complaining that it doesn't slice and dice and make damn Julien fries at the same freakin' time.  I'm really happy that it's 'working' but not 'properly' becuase it doesn't describe the device to your satisfaction and that it doesn't support an audio subsystem that we don't support at all.

Despite my rant: Please let me know if the existing functionality, as intended, is working or if there are any issues with it because I want it to work properly within the existing system.  If you want it to do something it doesn't do then *please* open a feature request in trac.  Then feel free to provide proper svn patches to provide those features.  If you are unsure how to do that then *please* ask in #linuxmce-devel on freenode irc for specific assistance.

Heh.  As posde says, no.  The screens are for controlling an XBOX 360 through InfraRed from a MD.

I believe there is a priority parameter, perhaps that could make a difference?

That's a definite possibility.  I have much higher cpu usages here, which is confusing me a little.  Check the squeezelite command line settings and you can alter /usr/pluto/bin/Launch_Squeezeslave.sh to add any items for testing.

If we find that buffers are the issue, or other command line items, then we can add those pieces into the webadmin and the script as permanent values.

That shouldn't be an issue, afaict.  What is the load like with all three squeezelites playing?

Squeezelite has the ability to upsample all it's outputs, I wonder if it is doing that?  And, if it is, I wonder how much impact that is having?

The proper package was in the repository.  However the failed package would not complete to allow the new package in.  An apt-get install --reinstall lmce-squeezeslave would have gotten around that.

This is a build of squeezelite from the original source.  Squeezeslave is no longer supported or being developed.  I have been running this for some time now without any issues.  I have no missing time in any of the tracks I play.  We will likely have to push any issues we discover back upstream to the squeezelite author.

A question:  What are you running squeezelite on (cpu speed/# of cores/what else is the machine doing)?  How many squeezelites are you running on this machine?  Squeezelite takes a lot more resources than squeezeslave did and that could have an impact on the number of squeeze devices you can run at one time.

When you say parts of the songs are 'missing' do you mean that the track appears to skip in the middle of playing?  Or does it start a few seconds into the song or finish a few seconds early?

Hey, sorry about this.  I did fix it within a couple of hours of causing it though.  If you apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade it *should* fix everything.  Please let me know what happens if it does not and I'll look at it asap.
