Re: STICKY: The I2S sound thread.

I am not sure if this would be the correct place to ask, but could my issue with an i2c microphone be helped here?

PiZeroW i2c microphone Stretch Issue

Hello all. I am trying to get an i2c microphone working on my raspberry pi zero. The module and tutorial are from Adafruit: https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-i2s-mems-microphone-breakout/raspberry-pi-wiring-and-test but I can only get it working on Debian Jessie. I think the kernel compiles ok whe...

Raspberry Pi makes appearance on "Arrow"

Just caught this while watching the show, unfortunately I was not the first:

How does that usb sound card fare against this:

Re: logitech media server poor quality

You may be correct. What is interesting though, is that I seem to get better audio quality from the same Pi when I use mpd instead. Any ideas on how we can improve the audio performance of the Pi? I just found this, but havent tried it out yet: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=20866

logitech media server poor quality

ALL,

I am running squeezeslave on my raspberry pi and noticing that logitech media server puts out lots of audio static when the volume is turned down.

Has anyone run into this problem? I have tried squeezeslave on both raspian and squeezeplug with the same results.

Thanks!

Re: Audio popping; OpenELEC, XBMC, or Pi problem?

Bummer, I was planning on using the raspi as a media player (mpd or squeezebox) and this problem is definitely apparent! I am running archlinux for ARM, I will see if I can implement one of the fixes provided, I do not want to add an external sound card, as I don't have room for it in my build... An...

Re: Shift Registers and ADCs for a Noob...

Cool idea. I stumbled upon your post after deciding that I wanted the same thing (arcade emulator+pi). I will want more IOs though, looking at around 26. Unfortunately, I do not know much about shift registers but I am reading. I found that the Arduino site has a pretty good explanation of them (wit...

Wow that UBEC looks like an excellent solution, Thanks! I am still trying to read up on how it works, but it looks perfect and at such a good price. I definitely have some of those 12v adapters laying around so I think I may go that route. Any drawbacks to this method? Any idea how I can determine t...

Re: how much current do I need

OK, so I figure I could power the PI and those accessories with maybe 2A, maybe 3 to be safe? Now for the rest of my story... I also would like to power a pair of bookshelf speakers (and whatever amplifier they use). My project is a rev2 of my wifi radio that I built using the MightyOhm guide. I am ...

You must convert file system to ext 3 or 4. NTFS is a very big bottleneck. OK, will do. I am just re-reading this thread, seems like everyone else was doing that...sorry. EDIT: WOW big change indeed. With ext4 I am at almost 7Mbps. I would like to eek out a little more, but this certainly is a good...

Re: Samba Performance

I just put Arch on my raspberry pi. I figured that if I started with the minimal install and then added samba myself, I would get better performance since there was less overhead. So after setting samba up via ssh, it would appear that I was wrong. My speeds are less than 3Mbps when transferring sev...

Re: Samba Performance

So now that the drivers for the PI are open source, does this mean we could get better usb performance? I tried using a "distro" called squeezeplug on the pi. It is pretty impressive and easy to use. Unfortunately, I was not getting speeds better than 3-5Mpbs.. here is the distro: http://www.squeeze...

Re: Samba Performance

Well I would never compare it to a full out desktop...thats just not a fair comparison.

I am more interested in the functionality/reliability/usability of it as a NAS.

Re: Samba Performance

Any updates on this? I would really like to use my Pi as a NAS. In fact, I am very interested in running something like openmediavault on it. I have seen a few more posts that discuss openmediavault, but not many success stories.
