Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

None of the keys work with the Logitech K830. They all worked fine with a USB wired keyboard from Microsoft. This is great. It's hard to find someone who is so passionate about their projects that they reply to questions and provide such great support. Thank you, Bill B and devices -- … H: Handlers...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Mike, Is there any support for multiple unique title strip designs, set on a per-strip basis from a database or genre variable? Ok, so if it's just the page background (graphic image) which is different for different genres rather than the font type, size and colour then that may not be a big di...

Ok. Well you know what happens when assumptions are made. :D Hope you get things resolved. It's great software for sure. Hi Yes that's correct... fruitbox only checks the database when it starts up.

Hi, fruitbox v1.15 is now released! This is the "don't get too excited version", as it only includes minor enhancements and bug fixes. I wanted to get these out of the way before doing any significant changes, and trying to get the Pi4 version working. Bug-fixes... Fixed input button masking (32-bit...
