Re: Crackly audio through 3.5mm jack

I am curious the update on this, especially initializing the DAC on boot up, so it's always live and active and then stopping the crackle when the CPU is getting taxed. I am just using MPD for my solutions, so that may help matters some.

Thanks!

Another addition to this tail... I tried to open codepage 437:

Code: Select all

Changing Console Fonts: Want to Use Terminus for CP437 Chars

I've been busy working on a TUI concept for a solution I am calling "StreamPi". See: http://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc7/397270_226182807509289_124001671_n.jpg Nothing too fancy really.

Re: Analog Crackle/Pop at Start and End of Audio in Console

Okay, so far the Hexxeh rpi-update tool fixes it from what I hear. The apt-get repository is frozen as well, so no updates right now. I guess the old version will work for the moment.

Re: MPD in apt-get needs upgraded

Okay, installing Hexxeh's rpi-update and doing an update fixes it:

I was right, it was a power issue with the analog sound out. So now this should be good. I now just need to remember this for next time. ;)

Re: MPD in apt-get needs upgraded

That's unfortunate for sure, I'll manually install the source and see if that will solve my issue. If not, then it's not a huge issue. Besides the popping the new release of Raspbian has solved the buffering issue. The audio from XBMC is great from what I hear, they fixed the popping issue from what...

MPD in apt-get needs upgraded

Raspbian Team, I am using the image of Raspbian from 9-18 off of Pi's website and I have been tinkering with MPD for a new solution I am building. I noticed that audio from MPD (and VLC that I tested) pops when audio stops and starts. It's weird. Anyways, I reported it to the MPD team and today they...

Well, seems that it's an issue with Raspbian. They are using an old version of MPD:

Yep, I have been tinkering with MPD. It's great except for a crack/pop it gives between songs sometimes, but once that's resolved then it's a sure winner!

Re: Noise at front of audio playback

Any luck on a solution? I have this issue when using MPD playing an aacPlus stream and a single MP3 file that's on the SD card, so it's not external sources causing this.

Programming Text-Based GUI

Guys, I started looking at Python and it looks pretty simple, reminds me a bit of Perl and PHP in the language constructs. I am familiar with both, more with PHP though. If I could just code a product in pure PHP then I'd be a lot happier, though I guess I am stuck with Python. ;) What I want to do ...

Re: Shutdown or reset switch

I would love to learn more on what it would take to make this work! Do I need a circuit or do I just touch 2 pins together? And if so, for how long of a push will "shutdown" be and how would I start it again? My only concern is people may bump this button, so it would have to be countersunk. Anyone ...
