Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Top work Mike.

Volume control has a much better range and my pause issue has gone.

Thanks for all your hard work.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

My guess is that your usb mount does not have write privileges so is unable to create the fruitbox.db file.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Regarding a volume display, you can do this in the skin file...take a look at the 'TouchOne' skin as an example (the bitmap object on line 93 of fruitbox.cfg)...I encourage you to add one to the skin you are using ;) Got this working tonight - thanks Mike. I will print out a copy of the user guide ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hifiberry AMP2 arrived today. Very impressed what such a small card can pump out! Is there a way to reduce the start up volume? It's too loud for the small room it's currently in and freaking out the kids :o Also I can't turn down too much before it gets silent/mute. Hard to tell if bug or a big jum...

Cheers,
Mike
Looking forward to getting it.

Ordered a pair of https://www.whathifi.com/roth/oli-ra1/review to go with it.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Thank you Mike......back on track.

Updated to 1.6

Pressing "Z" does pause the track. Pressing again does start the track again if looking at the track time but with no audio.

Also, once silently resumed, I can no longer skip track using the backspace key.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Thanks Mike. I've got the power supply and speakers coming too :) . "Z" to pause is not working for me, I'm guessing I didn't successfully update to version 1.6. I apologise I'm on a steep learning curve here so I get stuck on the basics. To update from 1.5 to 1.6 can I do the following: wget https:...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

EDIT: just a thought ; if you just want to change music and not skin then you'll just need the database and mp3s on the usb and not cfg file. Hope that helps, Mike That's perfect Mike. I've just pointed the Music path and database file path in the WallJuke skin to the usb drive. Thanks for all your...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I'm nearly there. I want to keep the configuration file and database file on the usb memory stick with the music so that I can swap music collections by just swapping the memory stick. I have made a copy of the config and database files and put them in /mnt/usb/ I have edited the Database path in th...

Trying tonight to use a usb flash drive. I'm sure this is a basic error but I can not get the drive to mount.

Shouldn't Raspbian automount the drive when it's plugged in? (Fat32).
Ignore my ramblings, I have managed to mount it manually. I'll be back with a bigger problem later. :D

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I finally started with fruitbox tonight. All installed and music added fine. bashrc file edited to load fruitbox on boot. Only problem is I am prompted for login details on boot. Once I enter the user and password it does load straight to fruitbox. How can I skip the login process? Thanks David

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Thank you both. I have no preference for the justboom, I’ll check out hifiberry to see if they have something suitable for a zero.

I was planning to use a pi zero. If I add the justboom amp hat, will I still have access to the GPIO pins to connect buttons?
I expect this is a dumb question, but can somebody confirm with a yes or no? I’m itching to order the amp :) .

Thanks

I'm pretty new to the Pi so please bear with me. This is the sort of project that makes me want to learn a bit more.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

This looks great.

Does it / will it have support for touch screens?
