Re: Peppy player

Which OS do you use? I believe you can ignore those error messages and run command: sudo apt-get -f install it should fix tall problems. The thread about patch is here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=250001 Regarding the screen, it's hard to say. If it can work with a regula...

Hi Koepisch, You can reduce the font size by changing the number for 'label_text_height' in file /home/pi/Peppy/ui/factory.py line #1106: https://github.com/project-owner/Peppy/blob/a25aaddc2b3a436be698e3fa6ad97b313a774fef/ui/factory.py#L1106 It's percent and can be in range 0-100.

Re: Peppy player

Thank you Koepisch for the help in debugging the issue! It looks like Web UI changes the file encoding, I'll fix that in the next release. I believe the only change I did in the last release in the playlists - I updated dead links to some Rock radio-stations: https://github.com/project-owner/Peppy/t...

Re: Peppy player

When does it stop working? Is it after shutdown? Did you change the playlist from the web UI? Can you try to change it in editor (e.g. nano). Could you check the character encoding of the podcasts.m3u and /home/pi/Peppy/current.txt ? Is it ANSI, ANSI as UTF-8 or UTF-8 ? I usually use notepad++ for t...

Re: Peppy player

The valid RSS file is a regular XML file. If you open it in browser you should see the the root tag of that file is 'rss'. For example you can open one of the default podcast links in browser and see the structure of the RSS feed file: https://radio.nac-cna.ca/podcast/explorethesymphony/explorethesy...

Re: Peppy player

Hi, More likely the link to the podcast is not the link to the RSS feed. The player can parse only valid RSS files. As you selected that invalid link it was saved as the current podcast link in file /home/pi/Peppy/current.txt You can cleanup [current] and [podcasts] section in that file and player s...

Re: Peppy player

OK, I'm still not sure that the player should be completely shutdown. Probably running pygame.quit() could release resources. Though I didn't try it myself.

Good luck in your investigations. Please keep me informed.

Hi Koepisch, I believe you are talking about 'Logo' screensaver. If so, you can adjust the image size by changing configuration parameter 'vertical.size.percent' in the screensaver configuration file: /home/pi/Peppy/screensaver/logo/screensaver-config.txt. You can do that from the Config Web UI too....

Yeah, I had the same bad experience with PocketSphinx on Windows machine. It's out-of-the-box functionality is not usable. You need to train the model.
