    I currently have a Squeezebox setup with Raspberry Pi’s and am able to detect when the power on command is sent to the squeezeplayer. I have a script that listens for this, then sends an IR signal using the GPIO and a IR Blaster to my receiver to turn it on. Is there a way to detect when the “speaker” is receiving audio, thus allowing me to do the same thing with SoundSeeder?

    Hello. That sounds very interesting!

    Could you explain more detailed how your script detects this event?
    What kind of interface are you using?

    Basically you install the xPL Interface plugin in LMS. This broadcasts events like power on, power off, etc… for the different players. The script listens for these events for the specified player name and sends an IR code using lirc to the stereo to turn it on and off.

    I’ll take a look at xPL. If its as simple as it sounds, it should be possible, to support it with soundseeder too 🙂
