Re: piCoPlayer a dedicated microcore and squeezelite player

Do you have HDMI DACs to recommend (complete product or DIY component or kit) that would fit with this new feature ? Thank you for the great work Keep it on Bests I think that this feature is useful for those who use a AV-receiver or a high-end HiFi-system which allow you to connect the raspberry d...

Re: piCoPlayer a dedicated microcore and squeezelite player

Hi all. Please try the new version: piCorePlayer version 1.0. It is now possible to stream high resolution audio (up to 192 kHz) through the HDMI connection (previously it would downsample to 48 kHz) - thanks to giantpopples for the suggestion. The Kernel is updated to version 3.8.13+ the special fi...

Re: max audio sample rate over HDMI?

Hi giantpopples Thanks for testing. I was actually trying to update the kernel when you wrote your message. Therefore, I decided to follow the advice at the pages you linked to, so hopefully you will be able to use higher sample rate through HDMI. Please report back, because I don't have the equipme...

Re: USB FIQ testing....

Hi Gordon thank you for this.

Your previous change solved many of the problems that we had with external USB dacs.
Currently, some still experience pops and clicks occasionally with some of the USB dacs, do you think that the latest change could help with these issues?

Re: piCoPlayer a dedicated microcore and squeezelite player

Hi adrian. I can't see how changing settings for squeezelite should affect any settings on the LMS permanently. If you use a different MAC address (the -m option) the LMS should see the player as a new player, and hopefully not use any stored setting? How are you able to see what rate your USB dac i...

Re: piCoPlayer a dedicated microcore and squeezelite player

Hi Chriz and dipole.

Have you tried the new version 09. For me it seems to have solved the problem with some kind of static noise if played for a long time. I have been playing a web based radio station for 24 hours and it is still playing fine without any problem.

Re: Launch Radio listening automatically with Squeezelite

Hi

You could try to use the piCorePlayer.

This is a Squeezelite player which is running entirely in RAM, so you can simply pull the power cord, and no harm is done to the Linux or the SD card as there is no writing to the SD-card.

Regards

Hi. Regarding the WPA2. My finding with piCorePlayer V07 is that if the signal strength is good, then I can get WPA2 to work. I think that the problem still is the poor USB handling of the raspberry.

Yes I think that version 08 might be useful for your problem. It uses a newer Squeezelite, which should fix some of the communication problems between the LMS-server and the Squeezelite.

Dipole - Please try version 08, which uses a newer and unreleased version of Triodes Squeezelite. Therefore if it works, then don't update the Squeezelite player before this version is released. http://rapidshare.com/files/4203435048/piCorePlayer_V08.img http://rapidshare.com/files/3555913079/Change...
