Re: No bootcode.bin only USB boot on new 3B+ ?

@LTolledo, @HawaiianPi, Thank you both for your very quick responses and your help. I was still getting problems with sdtweak (no SD / empty SD / SD with bootcode.bin) with reboot and shutdown - red LED going off immediately. There is some newer firmware that fixes some USB boot issues, so make sure...

Re: No bootcode.bin only USB boot on new 3B+ ?

I'm getting what I think is a different twist on this. I'm keen to boot my RPi 3B+ from SSD and use this as my main storage, but before I commit to this, I decided to try booting from a USB flash drive. I've downloaded Stretch Lite 2018-06-27 to a 16GB Sandisk Cruzer FIT. The RPi boots (it's headles...

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

Cracked it!

File format issue - because I exported the playlist file from iTunes on my Mac, it had CR line endings; changed to Unix LF (thanks, TextWrangler), and then recognised OK by forked-daapd and iOS remote.

Thanks, ejurgensen, for this excellent software! :D

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I seem to have 'lost' the log file - /var/log/forked-daapd.conf is empty (0 bytes).

Re: Improved forked-daapd (iTunes server)

I guess I'm not understanding the format of Internet Radio playlists. I've created the following file, called Internet Radio.m3u, in my library: #EXTM3U #EXTINF:-1,BBC Radio 4 - http://bbcmedia.ic.llnwd.net/stream/bbcmedia_radio4fm_mf_p #EXTINF:-1,Barcelona Jazz - http://178.33.232.106:8034/stream #...

Re: Raspberry Pi UPS with Auto Restart

I've just successfully built this, and it works well - thanks @paulv. I discovered one small side-effect though - the Low (red) LED on the Powerboost 1000C is permanently on. Looking at the Adafruit schematic, this is because the transistor driving the LED is biased on by R10 in the UPS circuit (hap...

i2c issues with Adafruit Powerboost 1000C

I recently completed paulv's 'RPi Power Supply w. UPS, one button control' (here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=145954 ) and added a MAX17043 'fuel gauge', so that I can read battery voltage (I also send this to Domoticz). I'm powering my RPi 2B using the (optional) USB-A s...

USB hub in matching case

I had a quick look around for a USB hub for the RPi in a matching case and didn't find one, so I decided to make one. I got a second Clear Raspberry Pi Case and a New Link 4 Port USB Hub from ModMyPi, and I discovered that the hub PCB wasn't much larger than the case, so I set about cutting it down ...
