Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

So, new problem with touchscreen (I'm learning by trial and error, heavy on the error part). I set the pi to autoboot to fruitbox using the TouchOne skin... which is great until you need to shut it down. I had inadvertently --config-buttons to everything being a touchscreen input without realizing t...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Mike, I just got a touchscreen to start a second (I know, right!?!?!) jukebox project. I'm having trouble calibrating the buttons to the TouchOne skin. How can I see where on the screen the button is so that I touch it in the right place for the button config file? I searched the forum, but forgive...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Mike, I've got to tell you this story. My 91 year old grandfather is a walking repository of American country music. He is always asking me if I've heard of a certain performer or another, and he had a vinyl collection that would rival most radio stations. He fell in love with my version of the juke...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I'm interested in why the storage of the databases on the USB sticks caused you so much grief... can you provide any more info? Cheers Mike I kept getting permission errors when I tried sudo mv fruitbox.db /media/music/fruitbox.db where /media/music/ is the path to the USB music. I tried using the ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Something like... MusicPath = /mnt/usb Database = /mnt/usb/fruitbox.db ...and remember you can always use the --music-path and --database command line options to override the settings in the skin config files. I tried moving the fruitbox.db file to my USB but I got all kinds of grief from that. Is ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Ok. Well you know what happens when assumptions are made. :D Hope you get things resolved. It's great software for sure. Hi Yes that's correct... fruitbox only checks the database when it starts up. To make the musicpath and database pairing more robust, I would store the database on the USB stick ...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Are the WallSmall and WallJuke skins using the same database files and music path(s)? What are the date / timestamps on the database files and music paths? (Tip...do a ls-al on the files/directories) Cheers Mike OK, so one problem solved, the skins referred to different music paths.... Let me te...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Mike, Version 1.5's auto database update works great... but only if I run the WallJuke skin first. My jukebox runs the WallSmall skin. (And I'm building a second one as a touchscreen.) Help!

Pls be patient as he is doing this great job in his free time.
I'm sorry. I guess I missed that. Yes, he is doing an AWESOME job.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Mike, is there some way to make it autodelete the fruitbox.db on reboot, or in the alternative, automatically add new songs to the existing file as they appear. I want to be able to insert a usb turn it on, and it know what is on the USB doesn't match the existing file.

Does this make sense?

Mike, it's a dream come true. May do a little button reprogramming but other than that, it's done!

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

TargetIndy,

You might want to try using Picard (a great meta tag editor). Not sure how well it will recognize non commercial MP3s but it's worth a shot. Use Picard on a regular Linux machine though; RPi isn't powerful enough IMHO.

sudo apt-get install picard

By the way, love your project.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Just got Fruitbox to running after having to teach myself some bash. Hope to install a RPi running Fruitbox in a vintage stereo with a HiFiBerry amp. Major kudos to Mike for developing this!
