Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Well hooked up the PAM8403 and didn't smoke anything on my raspberry. So connections must be good. I do have an unusual sound issue though. Regardless if I use HDMI audio or the 3.5 mm jack. When the Raspberry goes into sleep mode I hear crackling and popping through the speakers. I have already up...

While I have no experience with this board, gnd would be battery - or negative. Vcc is your input voltage positive. Mute is a way to mute the output without changing volume level. I can't tell you if it's mute when high or mute when low. Inl is input audio left +. Gnd is audio ground or -. Inr is i...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

So I purchased a hiletgo PAM8403 but no instructions came with it. I have email the vendor but not sure if I will ever hear back. Does anybody have any experience with them and hooking up to the Raspberry Pi 3b? I could use some assistance.Here is a picture of the acutal amplifier. HiLetGO_PAM8403....

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Steve, To help you debug the touch screen chooser, take a look at lines 69-75 of config.cpp - this is where the left and right arrow touch areas are defined for the chooser screen. I suspect I haven't scaled them for the case where the touch screen pixel resolution is different to the touch scre...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Mike, A couple things. I figured I'd try my hand a troubleshooting my touchscreen issues with the chooser through the source code. Especially since I'm the one with the issue. If I turn up anything interesting I'll let you know. The second thing I've noticed is that in 1.14, I was able to touch E...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Finally got fruitbox working with the Official Raspberry Pi Touchscreen. It took me a few days of reading through this discussion to understand that you have to run ./fruitbox --config-buttons to transfer control of the buttons on the keyboard to the buttons on the screen. You have to actually touc...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

The juke in my local pub back in the early 1990s used to have two options. 3 plays for 50p (£0.50) or 7 plays for a pound (£1.00). But we found that if you put 3x50p in before selecting anything (£1.50) it would give you 150 plays :-) Wonder if the operator ever figured out he was losing money :lol...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Anyway I added a "NoDuplicates" config parameter that when set will prevent a song from being added to the queue if it's already there. This includes the currently playing song. In reality, this is the way old electro-mechanical jukeboxes worked anyway. It didn't matter how many times the song was ...
