Can you connect a monitor and keyboard to it?
If so, you can try option 10 from the main menu to see if it recognizes either the wifi or ethernet interface.

Can anyone tell me with the IdPi on Micro SD, using a Pi, could I plug in a usb drive with my audio files, or does it need to be accessed over a network from another PC?
Also, what is the current normal shipping time for the sd card to the UK, and what is the shipping charge?
Thanks

You can connect a USB drive and import and play media files from that. The drive might not show up the first time you boot it. You just need to go into External Media Menu (option 20 on the main menu) and enable read-only (option 1) or read-write (option 2) for USB drives. Then, after a reboot, you should be able to import and play from it.

As for your other questions, when you contact sales, they will be able to give you more information about delivery time and cost.

I have the Id 24.0.18 with MC 26.0.107-2- and wanted to switch from an raspberry pi 3b to 4b. Unfortunately this does not work. As soon as I power up the Pi after a short time, the monitor gets no signal and keyboard and mouse are not powered.
Is my version of the id not compatible with the pi 4b. With the 3b everything works.
I want to use the id as an DLNA Media Server and thought the more powered 4b could be useful.

Thanks in advance!

It's too old.  We can update your card or send a new one.  Write to deanna at jriver.

Thanks for the quick response. Yes, it was a few years ago I bought it ;D.
If only a download would be an option (i know it is not). I hope the delivery to Germany will not take so long. I would prefer a new one due to shipping time. I will get in contact.

I received an IdPi a couple weeks ago and haven't been able to make it work well in my setup. I've instead had more success with installing MC on generic raspberry pi os, but I figured I'd comment here as a feedback data point, and to see if anyone else has worked out how to do what I want.

First, to enable my audio HAT (https://www.pi2design.com/pi2aes.html), I need to add `dtoverlay=allo-digione` to `/boot/config.txt`. I have not been able to figure out how to get a terminal or ssh shell session on the IdPi, making this step a pain.

Second, my pi is connected to a standard 7" display and a mouse, but no keyboard. I want to set things up so that when it boots it automatically starts jrmc maximized. I was able to do this with a `.config/autostart/Media Center 31.desktop` file on raspberry pi os, but have not figured out how with the IdPi.

I also need to change `/etc/fstab` auto-mount my NAS, but did not get far enough with the IdPi to know if that is troublesome or not.

So I guess that I should just use the generic raspberry pi os approach instead of the IdPi. But I am left wondering if there are audio-specific configuration or setup choices that have been made for the IdPi that I am missing with the generic setup? Maybe that is just audio nervosa, but if the JRiver folks have found some settings or kernel options or whatever to sound better or be more reliable, I'd rather not miss them. Anyone know?

The boot partition is a fat32 filesystem. You can put it on a Mac, linux or PC and edit the config.txt with whatever you favorite editor is.

If you maximize MC in gui mode it will come back up maximized next time you run it.

There is a whole submenu for mounting devices and NAS shares.

It's more that the whole process is simplified.
Most end users aren't going to want to setup an OS, get it on a network, deal with shares, etc to get a MC renderer on a their network.

Will it be possible to install a VST3 plugin in IdPi (so not local on my laptop) and select the IdPi server as the audio device in Roon/Qobuz/Spotify?

If it were to work, the VST3 plugin would have to be compiled for Linux and armhf since it's a Raspberry Pi (I assume the OS the IdPi uses is 32-bit armhf in this case), not sure if there's many of those out there.

The very newest IdPi's with MC31 use arm64. I don't know that there are VST3 plugins for that. If there are they could be installed via copying to the SMB share.

Ooooooh, nice! I've gone arm64 on my Raspberry Pi and Orange Pi and they work fantastic, especially after the arm64 version of Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian) came out of beta a year ago. :D

So yeah, for the IdPi you'd need VST plugins that are compiled for the arm64 Linux OS.

Any idea if this SD card will operate on a Mercury Pi2 device?

At the moment I am using Gentooplayer, but am always willing to find something new or different

I think it should looking at the specs.
You might have to mess with the config.txt as they say with regards to an overlay but you can do that from a Windows or Mac PC.

Question: Do I have to have an SD card shipped from the states?

It seems super old school

This isn't really that bad. I ordered twice, and both cards came over here pretty fast, undamaged, and absoluely no issues with customs.

Thanks
