I have/had the exact same issue. Turning off LMS fixed it for me. That can't be my permanent fix, but I figure I'll wait for a later release and try again. I haven't tried the wpa_supplicant.conf, but had used that previously. I'll give that another try. pi 3B, HiFiBerry, DAC+ and 7" touch

I installed the Boss DAC on my RPI3B+ and it works fine, but I noticed when it boots it uses a generic DAC installation. Is that correct? Any suggestions on setting to use in the Card Control Settings? Thanks, Howard

Hi Greg, What I've been trying to do is use a pCP in my car, so the APmode was a god send. But, no matter if you use the LMS settings or the Tweaks, the player will not reboot and start playing a playlist. It always looses the previous playlist I'm assuming because it looses power from the car.
