Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi RainbowJuke (what a name!),

thanks for this very helpful illustration. Hope, my clickies will arrive pretty soon so I can jump on my next Fruitbox project.
Yes, I join you in thanking Mike so much as this wonderful piece of software helped me to get my Wurlitzer alive again.

Cheers
Raimund

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

That's right Steve, I ordered the momentary switches - had them on my radar for a while and rushed through dozens of different sources - looking all the same, only difference was the pricing ... But nobody described that one could disassemble and then label them individually. So I hope the ones whic...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Mike,

that's good news. I searched the internet back and forth - and also found those at several sources. But I hesitated to buy them as no seller tells that one could modify /insert labels.

So I will get me some and then label the "clickies".

Cheers

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Does somebody know about a good source for momentary push buttons which
a) are illuminated and
b) could be individually labelled

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Raimund, I don't know if you have the whole dual-boot thing sorted out, but, I just noticed that that there is a volumio image available for berryboot. With that as one image and raspian lite as the other you should be away to the races. If you've not used berryboot before it is similar to the N...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Joel, so you say that fruitbox is working - shorting the relevant GPIO and GND. That means that the issue is on the coin acceptor's side. How do you close N.O. /N.C. on the coin acceptor? Is there a microswitch which you can trigger by manually pushing the switch? If so and then the output is sho...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Scot,

thanks for the quick answer.
One more question:
What kind of monitor (type, brand) will fit into that wallbox?

I am close to get one myself and would like to benefit from your experience, if you allow.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

@ScotM

Your fruitbox editions look great - good job!
Just for interest: what screen did you use for the wallbox - seems to be portrait oriented?
Did you have to rotate fruitbox screen output or how did you manage that?

Hi @vasigias, congratulation, great work! Did you build the jukebox case yourself or is that an old enclosure which you could use? And: what size does your LCD screen (touch or non-touch) have? I am considering to build a new jukebox from scratch for my son, so I am currently collecting some ideas f...

If you need help with teensy, I can share my experience with it and how I set up my teensy to keep the original keypad of my Wurlitzer jukebox. Just let me know, when you have prepared the micro switch pcb.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

There are several ways to use the wallbox buttons. 1. use Raspi‘s GPIOs as input pins 2. use an old USB Keyboard and its built in controller (there are several instructions in youtube) 3. use an Arduino Leonardo or Teensy as button-USB converter In my Wurlitzer project I use the original keyboard bu...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi,

as I don't use fruitbox with the touch screen feature, I have no idea, if it is possible to have buttons as well as touch simultaneously - hope, Mike can jump in and help you out.

@KGP2005: I hope I understood your issue - if not come back with more details. Looking at your command it is not clear to be seen, if you have one or two "-" after "./fruitbox" -> you need two "-". Make sure that you are in the correct starting directory: In my case it is: /home/pi/rpi-fruitbox-mast...
