Davaar (DSi to DS)
Hello,

Has anyone managed to get an external source (toslink / spdif) from a DSi to another DS working?

Is there a setting in Konfig that I am missing?

I can get the MDS playing the playlist from the Sekrit DSi and also playing a radio source but NOT what has been plugged into the toslink (although this is playing from the DSi into the speakers)...

So it must be a configuration issue / setting...

I'm using a Majik DSI in my main system, and a Sneaky DS in the second system, and Songcast works perfectly. I can play records or use the Toslink input on the main system, and it plays through the Sneaky too.

In Konfig you need to select the DSI, click configuration, and make sure that Songcast Sender is enabled.

Yes - I think so.

I must admit I was surprised it all worked so easily.

It might sound obvious, but have both DS players got Davaar, and have you got the latest beta release of Kinsky Desktop?

chimar,

My instinct tells me you might have found a bug in the Sekrit DSi code. If so it should be relatively easy to find and fix. Rest assured it is supposed to do what you are expecting. At beta stage we do not test all the functionality of all the products, so I can see how this might have slipped through.

Hi Graham,

This may or may not be good/bad news / help you!!!

I have a Sekrit DSi with toslink IN and spdif IN (the spdif IN is from a Sonos) I also have the RCA OUT from the Sekrit DSi into the input of the Sonos although this has never worked!! The spdif IN works fine...

Does this sound like the same "bug" or is there an issue with the unit?

Thanks Jamesh,

Yes both have Davaar and I have the latest version of Kinsky Desktop.

All looks fine when on a windows machine.

Ok, you've lost me. Can you explain this additional problem again?

Thanks

RE: Davaar (DSi to DS)
Sure,

With a Sekrit DSi there should now be 3 ways to get music out..

a) Using Songcast
b) Using the RCA audio outputs
c) Speakers

b) does not work on my unit! So if I connected a poweramp to it I don't think I would get any music out!

RE: Davaar (DSi to DS)
Ok, when you say the RCA outs never worked I assume you mean they didn't work with Cara either. If this is the case you probably have a hardware or configuration issue. I can't immediately think of a configuration setting that would prevent the RCA outputs from working, but I am not an expert on Sekrit-specific configuration, so I wouldn't really be able to comment with any authority until Monday.

No it never worked with Cara either!

Maybe there are 2 issues here then... 1 for the Songcast and the other being the RCA outputs - just the result is the same!!

Would someone be able to have a look / think on Monday!?

Other than that... (and that the control points don't work right now..)

Songcast from the NAS is fantastic!! - Really really fantastic!!
