I have been following the following guide to try and set up an internet radio to automatically start playing my wife's favourite radio station.
https://www.reichelt.com/magazin/en/kod ... net-radio/
I totally skipped the bit about the touchscreen.
I installed the latest Raspbian Buster, taught it to connect to my home WiFi
I updated the thing
I installed Kodi
I installed the Radio addon
I selected the radio station of interest
Went into the log file and snagged the station ID (felt like a total hacker by this point)
I made the thingy inside Kodi to make it automatically start with my chosen station when Kodi is opened....
*here is the bit from the guide below where the wheels came off*
Now that the radio starts automatically when you open KODI, you only need to start KODI automatically when you start the RPi. To do this, open the following file:
nano /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart <---- This file and directory did not exist?!?
And add the entry @kodi -fs in a new line. <---- so I couldn't do this bit
When you restart your RPi, your KODI internet radio starts automatically on your favorite radio station, no matter where in the world you are!
* here ends his guide*
It is frustrating to be so near yet so far. I just need to make Raspbian automatically start Kodi on start then the Pi can just be hooked up to speakers and power.
If someone can help me out of this pickle I will majorly appreciate it
