Re: PeppyMeter

Thanks, I had fun building this and researching some errors and looking for a sound card input device, which I have narrowed down to http://www.audioinjector.net/rpi-hat.

I notice you have hard coded the resolution of the meter, is there any way I can stretch or fill the image to a 7" screen?

Re: PeppyMeter

I am going to build it now to see if that indeed allows me to use it as a standalone meter with an input audio source from RCA etc. Once again great project, I am looking to mod old vu meter casings with the screen version as the large vu meters are very hard to come by.

I will keep you posted.
