Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Thank you for the response. I still need (want?) to insert an AMP in between to get a bit more sound. The card you've pointed out on kickstarter looks nice and cheap. I may go for that option then (even if the terms and technical explanations are way above my understanding). Thanks! Fred I use the ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox - Out of Memory : Kill Process

Hi Scot That's so weird...I tried mine on a 3B+, so looks like we have the same hardware. What other differences can there be? The songs themselves perhaps? Maybe worth cutting your database down to just one song, and go from there...if it still bombs, you could send me that one mp3 file so I could...

Re: Fruitbox and LMS

Re: Out of Memory : Kill Process

The only thing to check now mate is the version of the fruitbox fle itself as I am running the latest version of 1.16, which is what I see on Github, I couldn't see any archive folder - is this easily located? So I've found the various versions on GitHub - might be obvious to some but there you go ...

My plan now is to hold out for anyone to give...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox - v1.16 wireless keyboard

Hi Mike, I'm not sure whether this was intentional or a by-product of other changes, but, just in case, I thought I'd let you know that v1.16 will not respond to my wireless keyboard (Logitech K400 using a Logitech unifying usb receiver) unless I map the keyboard buttons with fruitbox.btn and, of co...

Hmm.. Well It would appear to be the audio card of the raspberry pi. When i connected my PAM8403 to my laptop the sound is surprisingly good. No crackling or pop-ing noise etc.. So hi see everybody seems to be using the HifiBerry. Does it have a built in sound card? My concern is the small 8ohm 3 w...

Hy Mike, We just install your jukebox. it's great on work perfectly. We would like to add an other feature, who might be funny. The idea is to activate a relay to open a door when we select a specific song. Do you have any idea to realize this project. Thanks, regards. Gaby. I'm not Mike, but, here...

As soon as I get a github pull request I'll review the changes and get it merged into the main branch, and include it in the next release.

It was one I bought to fit in where the,title strips go. It was,the right height when I took it out of the case, but narrower. I was going to have to make a face frame for it. Understood.

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 ...
