I'll just say, for me integrating this is huge. LMS and squeezebox is an outstanding audio package, regardless of price, for those that don't want subscriptions and streaming to be the only way to get music, tho you can,... and it's all free.
Now if I could just figure out how to control all the amp I'd be fully where they promised I'd be back in 1999!!
This looks very promising. I too have several - and have resurrected a couple of the touches recently as ROON endpoints (as have many of the old squeezebox community seem to have found themselves). But moved onto HEOS system so that I could get better integration with Denon/Marantz amps and they have a well documented CLI.
Looking at the code here it seems a good basis for attempting to incorporate this as a music player device - what I really want to do is display album art and basic controls on the main dashboards. Maybe time to take the plunge and try a little coding . Its been a few years.
You should be able to just add a player device as a music player to the dashboard to get music controls. In terms of displaying the cover art, you can access the current cover art on your LAN using the following URL:
Although, that is only local network access.
I can get that to appear on the Hubitat dashboard although there's no auto-refresh of the image currently. If you were able to stand up your own simple HTTP server and serve up a page that references that link but with a meta-refresh set, that might work.
You can use the sharptools.io dashboard. It works and allows you to set auto-refresh but I would expect the album art will only render if you are accessing the dashboard from your home network. I tried setting one up to test it and it works. Although currently the controls it exposes on the music player are a bit limited (no volume, mute etc.). However, the guys at SharpTools are really responsive to feature requests and suggestions so you could always ask them to add more controls
Thanks - exactly how I was thinking. I have a dream of each room having a dashboard that brings these elements together with lighting and environmental controls displayed. Triggered update for the image tile (rather than auto refresh IMO). I'll play a little when I get back home this weekend.
I tried the Harmony Hub,... no go in my case. The hub wants to be an only child and doesn't (didn't when I was trying anyway) like being in a 2 or 3 hub environment... so given I have amps sprinkled like salt around the house I couldn't control several from one location, some using IR some using ethernet.
I think there is, doing some googling I think I may be able to perform login and acquire an authentication token to include in the headers when I'm making a request. If you take the password protection off for now and I'll have a look at adding in the support for security.
also do i have to do anything to get the speak function to work... I tried typing something in the fields and clicking send my player stops playing and switches to playing some obscure mp3 with no sound output
