Re: Can I use an HDMI touch monitor with Raspberry Pi?

You CAN transmit touch information via the HDMI cable, but this requires special hardware.

Re: I2S: Anyone got it running? (answer is yes!)

talking about netjack solution. Should be a good solution with easy setup, but I don't know how good the drivers play together with jack (tested it once and it didn't work, but that should not prevent you from trying it again). It is just more expensive than the single-rpi solution. I want to achie...

Re: I2S: Anyone got it running? (answer is yes!)

But do you think this is also a suitable solution soundquality wise? Or is this just way to complicated? Which one do you mean? Or would it just be much simpler and/or better sounding to go the easy spdif way somehow. With spdif you do not gain anything. It can only transmit stereo, too. Maybe by u...

Re: I2S: Anyone got it running? (answer is yes!)

Would be real happy if you can share this. The basic idea is to let the Raspberry Pi think you are supplying 32 bit stereo, but actually you transmit 16 bit 4-channel. You can just change the header of a 4-channel wave file to achieve that. Secondly, you have to do a small driver modification to te...

Re: I2S: Anyone got it running? (answer is yes!)

AFAIK I2S is for stereo (2-channels) only. In the first place that is correct, but there are hacks to handle this limitation. Some thoughts can be found here: https://github.com/Guzunty/Pi/issues/11 Secondly, I have used a single Wolfson Audio Card, a small driver modification and some software to ...

I am sorry, you are totally right. The branch without -asoc is the current one (including support for the proto board). I have deleted the other one with -asoc now. The connection looks right.

Re: I2S: Anyone got it running? (answer is yes!)

Depends on what you want to do. I want to do 96kHz or 192kHz stereo capture, which means 3 of the 4 cards you listed are not appropriate, and from what I gather the Wolfson only works on a specially cobbled together kernel that they produced and is not being kept upto date. I'm using a currently pr...

@gnozzi, @jotun: Which audio codec do you want to use?

Re: Alsa-dmix not working

Then you might want to test the I2S driver in the current 3.10 or 3.12 kernel. Sure, you would not hear anything without external hardware, but you can check if this is a problem of the other ALSA driver or if there is anything else broken.

Are you sure it hangs and not only the output is silence?
Does it come back after some time (when the audio data should be finished)?

Re: Portable music/radio streamer using i2s and TFT touchscr

Great, that seems pretty reasonable!
If you like, it would be great if you would rebase your changes against the 3.10 branch (or 3.12 if your like) of the official kernel and send a pull request.

Re: Need help to get TFT screen connected to Pi

It should be possible to use a TFP401A - I have actually used this IC to connect a AT070TN9 display to the Raspberry Pi.
Although, as Burngate already mentioned: That is not so easy, you should be at least able to build a PCB and solder a TQFP 100.

Because packed transmission is apparently not supported by the DMA controller.
