Re: Pi 4 4GB- Wifi not working when resolution is set too high

Previous Pi generations could use the

Code: Select all

config_hdmi_boost
setting in config.txt to control the HDMI "signal strength". The documentation claims that setting is ignored by the 4B, is that still the case? Has anyone tried playing with it?

Would be great if you could start such a list and subject a documentation improvement.

Re: Spotify Music Player for RPI?

To be clear, raspotify is just a version of librespot that someone made easy to install. Librespot is the software that deserves praise. Mopidy provides a more general purpose audio player (online radio, local files, etc) and a Web page user interface. It does not support Spotify Connect. All of the...

Re: Raspbmc samba share - host is down

Try adding the vers=X.X cifs option i.e.

Code: Select all

mount -t cifs -o vers=1.0 /my_server/share /some/mount_point
You'll need either 'vers=1.0', 'vers=2.0' or even 'vers=3.0' depending on how your samba server is configured.

Yes, RPI3 works with wifi when using the Rasbian distro, & likely all other distros created to run on it. :)
That was not the question.

Re: APP: play tracks from youtube !

Ahh OK, with you now.

It looks like it would be quite easy to add a bunch of MPD style actions and interface to Mopidy or mpd with python-mpd2. I would give it a go if my WH Smiths hadn't been cleaned out.

Re: APP: play tracks from youtube !

No doubt you've found you can't play music on your AIYProjects box from Play Music
I'm curious, why not? Is is not just a case of connecting it up to mopidy-gmusic (or similar)?

Re: RPI 2 is not accessible after a week

Is that dmesg output from when it's still working? When you say the "IT WORKS" page is still accessible have you done a *full* page refresh in your web browser to make sure you are not seeing a cached version? Whatever is preventing your ssh connection would almost certainly stop an actual web serve...

Re: RPI 2 is not accessible after a week

Can you still access it using the ip address? Are you running a firewall on the pi, such as iptables? If the answer is yes to both those questions then check you have opened ports 67 and 68 to allow dhcp renewals.

Re: MusicBox, bluetooth speakers - which Pi to buy?

Those old instructions are for a generic USB bluetooth dongle and not the Raspberry Pi 3's onboard bluetooth which only works in Raspbian Jessie. Musicbox still uses Raspbian Wheezy (I know), so it won't work. Just install Mopidy yourself on the latest Raspbian Jessie, follow the documentation at ht...

Re: New SSH security warning mechanism - feedback wanted!

Is the code available on github or similar? Is there any chance of making the password to check for customisable so we can use it on spin-off distributions that have a different default password?

Perhaps you could try to enable verbose mode to see what it is doing (if anything) while unresponsive. Use

Code: Select all

Re: So looks like there's a new raspbian

With the new raspberrypi-net-mods, if /boot/wpa_supplicant.conf exists, it will be moved over /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf. This is done through /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/01-wpa-config-copy. It may take a short while for the load balancers to sync this update. Out of interest, where is th...

Re: Spotify Offline Playback...has this ever been achieved?

Libspotify supports offline mode which you can see if you visit their documentation. However, I'd suggest using the infinitely more usable pyspotify (https://pyspotify.mopidy.com/en/latest/). In either case you'll need a full premium account.

Re: Software suggestion for music

Hi,

You might want to take a look at http://www.woutervanwijk.nl/pimusicbox/ which is based on the mopidy music server (http://www.mopidy.com/). I don't use the pimusicbox image myself but mopidy is a great piece of software. Hope this is helpful.
