Re: SSH not responding after a while on Pi Zero & Zero W

Full Jessie worked as expected. on both PiZeroW and Pi3. Tried again with Jessie Lite (on Pi3) and it works as expected. Put this SD card in PiZero W and now it's working as expected (ssh file has been moved from /boot from booting on Pi3) Refreshed sd card with Jessie Lite, created /boot ssh and wp...

Re: Raspberry pi as FLAC audio player (with screen)

Hi, one issue has been the many different screen options which could be attached to the Pi. This has fragmented the development community IMHO. Now we have the official 7" Raspberry Pi display with tough input so now we have the basic standard platform for such developments to start. I would suggest...

Re: Tv sound via raspberry pi and Dac

Hi snorbans, thanks for using our DAC+

Easiest is to feed the TV signal into your amplifier and switch between RuneAudio and TV on there.

USB input will give you a delay and deliver lip sync issues.

Re: AirPlay Receiver - best software?

Shairport-sync has for us been the most reliable. Building it should be pretty straightforward but there is a pre-build SD card image (headless) for the IQaudIO sound HATs available at www.iqaudio.com/downloads You could take that image and make it work with the audio card you use. Or buy one of our...

Re: Volume control on HifiBerry DAC+ broken with current ker

Add on boards based around the TI PCM5122 will suffer.

Jumo into alsamixer and have a look at the mixer values when playing music.

Re: Volume control on HifiBerry DAC+ broken with current ker

A change was made by the Linux SoC audio guys to make available additional mixer controls to the PCM5122 driver. This change had a negative impact in that it exposed a but in ALSA startup which reduced the overall volume output of the PCM5122 to 1vrms rather than 2vrms by default - simpley due to ne...

You may find the IQaudIO Pi-DAC+ and Pi-AMP+ make a simpler solution if you require better audio quality - but you may want to reconsider those cheap speakers to get the best from it.

Re: HAT spec enforcement?

I may be simplifying the whole discussion but for me this is the crux.... If we want to spec HAT to make it easy for people to use add-on boards (and specifically the configuration of them) then enforce it. Consumers will be able to understand that HAT has a benefit and rely on the fact that a HAT b...

Re: Rotary encoder

May not be 100% what you are looking for but I've placed some source on www.github.com/iqaudio/tools which shows how the rotary encoder signal can be detected (using WiringPi) on the Pi and allows the ALSA volume mixer to be controlled. I use GPIO 23/24 and ground to a 3pin rotary encoder. [email protected]...

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

There are two drivers needed - one for the actual device (PCM512x) and one for the board (IQaudIO). The board file specifies the i2c address being used etc. We use the same drivers across our Pi-DAC and Pi-DAC+ Note - the PCM5122 needs to be "configured" before it will sing. This is done in the PCM5...
