Re: Preconfigured Airplay speaker (Shairport) - Rasp. Pi Ima

Interesting! Will check if I can replicate this on 1.0-dev. Updating the Raspi firmware through rpi-update has been known to solve some audio issues - I was having issues with stuttering audio at first, an rpi-update fixed that, you might want to try it! YOU MADE MY DAY! The thing is: I had updated...

Re: Preconfigured Airplay speaker (Shairport) - Rasp. Pi Ima

Hey, Most of these performance tweaks are already applied. Using JACK is not an option, because this image assumes you are going to use the built-in speakers. Although, I will look into using HDMI for audio, so you can use a HDMI -> VGA+Audio splitter and get crystal clear audio from your HDMI port...

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi ready for download

I was unable to get audio when using HDMI instead of analog out I found the solution in another post (http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=23407 ) in /boot/config.txt I had to add hdmi_drive=2 the reboot. this because my HDMI device is seen by the RPI as a DVI (=video only) while it acc...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

Hi, I'm figuring out the Spotify issues. So I tried to install Triodes Plugin on the Debian SoftFloat version. Some of you reported here it would work. I get this error: Error reading headers: Server closed connection without sending any data back at /usr/share/squeezeboxserver/CPAN/Net/HTTP/Method...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

Also: boot takes forever because DHCP on the ethernet alone wastes almost 1 minute.... o.k. understood, if you know how to implement this, please tell us here and I'll try to implement it! I think the easiest way is to change the /etc/network/interfaces file from auto eth0 iface eth0 inet dhcp to a...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

I'm not saying it's broken, I'm just saying that, under a common configuration (DHCP, use WIFI, or use ETH if cable connected) there's a useless waste of time at boot. It's somehow unusual, I think. Especially given the fact that there's no cable in the ETH interface, and AFAIK it is possible to de...

Re: SqueezePlug Version 5 ready for download

Also: boot takes forever because DHCP on the ethernet alone wastes almost 1 minute. I have no ethernet attached!! On top of it, the WIFI connects BEFORE the ethernet, so the second DHCP attempt is twice useless (no cable connected and I already have an IP). You can configure SqueezePlug to use stat...

Re: Headless Squeezeplay on RPI

As far as I know the official Spotify plugin only supports the SqueezeBox radio and Touch. The third party plugin by Triode works on SqueezePlay and other players as well. it works, but only on a "soft-float" (armel) Debian, not on the latest hard-float. AFAIK, there is no way of having the plug-in...

Re: Pi driving speakers?

The audio jack out of the Pi is not CD quality. It was just the best way of getting sound out without adding an expensive audio chip. The Pi has excellent audio capabilities but not through that port. So im SOL unless I have a reciever with HDMI? That's pretty crappy.... I'm not sure the standard a...

Re: Internet Radio

This idea is actually why I was interested in R-Pi in first instance! I've been playing with this concepts since 3 years ago, thinking of using old wifi routers, disassembling cheap wifi radios and improving them (including building custom speakers), etc I've got my R-Pi 2 weeks ago and finally star...
