Hi-fi tidal streaming on Vero4k+

Hi there, first time user of the wonderful Vero4k+ - a great little package to receive here in Canada from my home country!

I use Tidal for my music streaming and would love some support from somebody here - what is the best method/add on/approach here to get my hifi quality streams done through kodi on the vero?

Many thanks

I am not sure about the “best” method. Nor do I know any of them have got it running. But my first attempt would be to check if any post already talked about it

Maybe this is interesting

Thanks Sam! I am giving this a go, but I am not terribly technical.

Following Ben’s tweet, I have got as far as trying to install lbzip2 - have copied the folder extracted from the .tar.gz file across to the /home/osmc path using FileZilla, and given the folder full read/write/execute permissions. Upon discovering the generic command for installing something, I’ve run

./configure
make
sudo make install

I suspect I’m doing something very wrong here, as it doesn’t see ‘make’ as a valid command. It clearly lists the following during the ./configure command too: checking whether make sets $(MAKE)… no

Where am I going wrong here?

Try running:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install build-essential first.

Thanks again. I now get this when running ‘make’. Any ideas?:

osmc@osmc:~/lbzip2-2.5$ make
CDPATH="${ZSH_VERSION+.}:" && cd . && /bin/bash /home/osmc/lbzip2-2.5/build-aux/missing aclocal-1.14 -Im4
/home/osmc/lbzip2-2.5/build-aux/missing: line 81: aclocal-1.14: command not found
WARNING: ‘aclocal-1.14’ is missing on your system.
You should only need it if you modified ‘acinclude.m4’ or
‘configure.ac’ or m4 files included by ‘configure.ac’.
The ‘aclocal’ program is part of the GNU Automake package:
http://www.gnu.org/software/automake
It also requires GNU Autoconf, GNU m4 and Perl in order to run:
http://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf
http://www.gnu.org/software/m4/
http://www.perl.org/
Makefile:1298: recipe for target ‘aclocal.m4’ failed
make: *** [aclocal.m4] Error 127

I’d suggest starting by installing the suggested packages. Start with automake and go from there.

sudo apt install automake

Try to build (as automake may install some of the other dependencies) and if it fails, move on the the next one.

Hmm, still getting the same error message. What are the suggested packages you speak of? I will install those also.

Thanks!

Try this, but I’m guessing that there is something very wrong with the makefile.

sudo apt install autoconf m4 perl

That’s everything it’s complaining about. But I notice that it’s complaining about aclocal-1.14 and the current version is 1.15.

I just did a little checking, and instead of trying to make lbzip2, why don’t you just install it?

sudo apt install lbzip2

Thanks a million for the help all. Works a charm! WOW the Vero really is a special piece of kit.

Are you going to share with us how you got it working so you can help the next person with this question?

followed your installation instructions for lbzip2, and after that installed the linux build of the bridge, per the instructions on the tweet that was shared.

Thank you for clarifying that.
