Re: Audio Receiver (A2DP, AirPlay, Kodi)

Just want to update this thread. I have spent a lot of time recently testing and ensuring things work, additionally I spent time to allow for users to rerun the installation in the event that an error does occur. (This also helps for developing further fixes) Currently, I have added support for Volu...

Re: Bluetooth Headphones Frustrations! :-/

What version of pulseaudio are you running? I am able to successfully pair headphones after each reboot. I’m working on an install script for this, should be completed by tomorrow around 2pm. (During my daughters nap)

Re: Audio Receiver (A2DP, AirPlay, Kodi)

The VFS failure may caused by my installing Raspbian via NOOBS, since I want multi boot. I found osmc have enough support for my audio streaming needs and can be configured to work headless, I may stick with it. The unique value I found in this project is the bluetooth support, it would be better i...

Ah I understand now, unfortunately, the chromecast doesn't have the ability to receive input. I believe it would be relatively easy to setup a mic and have a script listen to the mic using some API waiting for some command. I don't have any experience with talk to text so I couldn't say for sure, bu...

Hi Hove, I was unable to tell from your script and maybe it's because you don't need this, but are you aware of whether or not the Zero W supports acting as an access point at the same time as acting as a normal wireless interface? I'm trying to setup a way to connect to the Zero W just long enough...

Re: Media Centre On Pi Zero W

I have a project that currently works on the Raspberry Pi Zero W, it allows you to connect and stream music via bluetooth and airplay. It also installs Kodi and allows for infrared remote support (if you want an alternate option). The reason I think this may work well for you is that it also include...

Hey I used the custom install and only said yes to 'bluetooth'....... How do I use it?? You should be able to pair it just like other bluetooth speakers from your phone/laptop. That is correct, depending on the name you gave it, it will show up under Bluetooth as that device. Simply select the Blue...
