Is there a limit on the size of a singular or multiple NAS drive ('X' TB?) that the BDP-1 can read and add? I have the Bryston database disabled. I am only asking if there's a limit on how many files/folders can be added to Manic Moose's sidebar folder view. Thanks!

^ Anyone? Will there be a problem with say a 6TB or 8TB, maybe 10TB?

The side bar is only a data base, a list, so it is not a matter of if the scratch disk is large enough to hold the data base listing? I have an internal 2 TB SSD that is used as scratch disc and for music file storage. I must have 4 or 5 TB from all attached storage [included a NAS] referenced in the DB, with a few hundred albums storage on the SSD itself, and the used capacity is only a few percent.

The internal would indicate a BDP-2/3, right? Their limitations should be higher than the BDP-1.

Yeah, I just wanted to get a confirmation for my peace of mind that it was fine with a BDP-1.

I've only had the BPD-3 a few weeks, before that a BDP-1 on which I used flash drives [32/64GB] as scratch discs for the database including a NAS of 4GB. The NAS loaded to the database but I didn't really make use of it as the NAS was only in the DB for a few weeks before I moved to the BDP-3.
More advice from others needed, I think. It has been very quiet here on the Bryston forum of late.

Yeah, I'm hoping James or Chris will give provide some advice before I start doing things.

Hi Zoom

I do not think it will be a problem but I will check with Chris Rice.

There is no limitation relative to drive size, the limitation is relative to the number of tracks.  The BDP-1 with the bryston dB disabled is about 100,000 tracks, but becomes more difficult and it’s reaction time slows at around 50,000 tracks (I think, it’s been awhile since I’ve been asked this question and my BDP-1 is connected to a library of 7,000 songs + TIDAL and QOBUZ).  Hope this helps.

Thank you. Is that limitation due to CPU and/or the scratch disc or the SD card inside the BDP-1, i.e. can the limit be extended?

Do you know the max limits for BDP-2 and BDP-3 and where they start slowing down? Thanks!

I am currently using a Synology NAS woth (2) 10tB 'RED' drives. There's no issue regarding my ROON accessing it and sending the target song to my Bryston Pi. I'be also used Bryston's cataloging App and it streams from the NAS just fine (though I don't like the App much... maybe I'm spoiled from using Roon).

Recently, I decided to try out Tidal Streaming, which is far better than I had imagined. Thus far, I've only been able to use my PC for it because my BDP-1 keeps reporting "incorrect username or password", even though I've entered the identical credentials in the BDP-1 as I'm using for the PC. For giggles, I've copied and pasted the username and password from the Settings page in the BDP-1 to my PC for logging in and it was successful. What could the issue be?

This is the build my BDP-1 is using:
S2.40 2019-05-10
Build: Manic Moose

If you place the BDP into service mode and email us the service id we can take a look remotely.  It's likely a character you've used in your username or password we didn't consider/test that your using and should be pretty simple to fix.

Ah, makes sense - I guess I should have thought of that. I changed my password to something without any special characters and the BDP-1 logged in without issue. As Tidal is just a streaming service, I had no need of using such a complex password. Consider the issue successfully resolved and me a happy customer. The BDP-1 has been an impressively stable device that continues to put a smile on my face. Thanks for the help!  :thumb:

would you mind posting which special characters you used so we can still resolve the bug for future customers who might come across it?

I wouldn't mind at all - aside from a mixture of upper/lower case and numbers, I used only one special character - $.

FYI Devialet had restrictions on characters in router passwords. Not uncommon issue.

Yup. I had the same issue with $ a while back. I was just about to chime in when I saw the reply from Chris.

Quick thoughts on the sound quality of Tidal on the BDP-1?

Looking to make a jump from Mac mini with Audirvana > Jitterbug > M2Tech HiFace2 > Signal Cable SPDIF cable > BDA-1

Thinking it'd be a good upgrade?

Thanks,

Evan

Good evening!

I have been using my BDP-1/BDA-1 combo almost daily and very happily since they were was introduced.
What a brilliant investment that was!
Nowadays the BDP-1 serves as a DLNA renderer for a Synology NAS which runs the DS Audio application.
I switched to this setup when my music library outgrew the limit set by the memory available in the player.
This setup works very well indeed most of the time, but there is an issue:
- every other day the BDP is no longer recognised as an available player. The solution is to either reboot it or toggle the Renderer service off and on and then wait a little while.
But why does this happen? The other DLNA renderers in my network do not seem to display the same behaviour.
Do anyone know of a way to keep the BDP permanently "online" so to speak?
Grateful for any advice on this question!

Hi there,

Try going in to your router settings and assigning your BDP a static IP address on your network.

I found that this kept everything connected and reachable more than the default settings.

Evan,

thank you, this sounds like a good idea. I try it for a while now to see how it works.
