Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Does anyone have any experience with Innomaker DAC Hat? I can't get any output from its 3.5 mm jack. Is there a setting in Fruitbox where you choose the output device? I was getting sound out of the RPi's 3.5mm jack.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I run TouchOne on the official 7" display and route the 3.5mm sound cable from the AudioInjector HAT to the speakers below. This sounds pretty cool for me. This is not the most beautiful setup. But it is very practical. @karrika - Is there a significant improvement in sound when using the AudioInje...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I have just about everything sorted out but I'm interested to hear what people are using for sound equipment. Right now I'm using the 3.5mm jack into a pair of powered speakers (Bose). I'd like some better (bigger sound). Would a DAC hat make a big difference or should I add and amp and other speake...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Bill When you specify multiple SortSongsBy parameters, fruitbox will do multiple sorts, starting with the first. So in your case it will sort all the songs in the database by their Album name, and then perform a second sort on that, by track number. The second sort will effectively group all the...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Update: Solved!!!! Using the Windows MP3tag app, I right-clicked and selected "remove tag". Once I did that, the invisible tags became visible, showing "The Doors" for the Artist and Album. I made the changes and saved them. Now the song is where it belongs. The issue was with multiple versions of t...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I answer myself in case it helps someone. if i run fruitbox with sudo it always plays for hdmi. without sudo the audio output selection works correctly That may work but the correct way is to configure it in raspi-config, advanced options, "Force audio out through HDMI or 3.5mm Jack" sudo raspi-con...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Mike, PageMode = Albums SortSongsBy Album SortSongsBy TrackNumber This is not working for me. If I comment out the TrackNumber line it works fine but organizes the songs according to title or some other field, not the order on the album. With the TrackNumber line, it displays only one song for ea...

That is cool. If you'd like to share any skins you could zip them up and email them to me at rpi-fruitbox@outlook.com ;)
I will. I'm still tweaking things here and there.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Before I ordered my touch screen, I made cardboard cutouts using dimensions of a 7 inch and a 10 in screen for comparison and he choice was obvious. It's not intuitive, but the 10 inch screen is massively larger than the 7 inch screen. I definitely recommend a 10 inch screen if you're going to use t...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Thanks, Mike. Like I said, it would be nice to have but it's great the way it is. I have three micro USB drives, each with its own skin and media. I made a more subtle skin for the old time radio version and loaded it up with radio shows from the 30's and 40's. This is so cool.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I just finished converting a 1940's radio into a touch screen jukebox and it came out great. I currently have it working from USB drives but would like to use the skin chooser. Unfortunately I can't get it to work on my 10 inch touch screen. Everything else works perfectly. This isn't a big deal bec...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Mike, I just started playing around with Raspberry Pi a few weeks ago and found FruitBox. Thanks for creating this software that is so richly configurable. I'm having a lot of fun with it and have been working on a new skin that is based on your Wurly skin. My plan is to build a retro-looking cab...
