[DONE] Airplay name setting

Postby tc-fi » 21 Jan 2014, 03:27

Please include a RuneUI field for setting the Airplay name.

In the meantime, which conf file has the Airplay name?

Hi tc-fi,
this setting is included in release 0.2-beta.
go to MENU -> Settings -> Player hostname.
Set your preferred player name.
This is also the Airplay service name.

Ciao.

Thanks Simone, I did not know that. The Airplay name that is displayed on iTunes must be constructed using the string "Shairport on " + hostname, correct?

May I suggest that having independent host and Airplay names would be more flexible.

Airplay speakers are often named by location for example "Studio Speakers", "Bedroom Stereo", etc., or by type for example "B&W A5 Speaker", "Zeppelin Air", etc. This makes it easy to identify the speakers in the Airplay list on iTunes.

In my case, I currently have two Pi's whose hostnames are RP1 and RP2, and whose Airplay names are "Studio HS5 Monitors", and "Bedroom Stereo".

A field for the Airplay name could be placed near the on/off button for the service :)

Regards,

- add MPD / Airplay (shairport) "perfect integration"
- backup / restore function (you will be able to backup and restore player configuration DB and MPD songs DB)
