Yes I think you're right (I had'nt think to this possibility)
It should be possible but it's a big project ! Except if somebody already made a software able to decode signal from sattelite (In classic decoders it's hardware decoded isn't it ?)
Thank you for your answer !
A have already made a bash script that launch mplayer then close it when you change of station and launch it again with the new station -> dirty
but working :p
I'm now working on commanding mplayer in slave mode http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/tech/slave.txt
(much more clean !)
When this new script will be working I'll add recording and maybe (I'm a linux newbie) the function "pause on direct".
It seems to me that we have the same goal even if we don't use the raspberry pi in the same way. However maybe only one
program could do everything concerning a mms flow : the question is : "Do this program already exist" ?
Because I know that a lot of programs can play/re-stream/record radio flow, but can they both
be efficient for :
- a "direct control" with buttons and a small screen (or a usb keyboard and no screen)
- a "remote control" with a web based interface
- an IR remote control (not on my to-do list)
I'm ready to spent time writing a script/program but it would be sad wasting time with the wrong software (not bad software but wrong for the use).
I don't know MPD very well but I will try to see if it's compatible with a "direct control" (contrary to the concept of a server controlled by a client).
The solution is maybe a raspberry pi with a server side app controlled by a client on the raspberry pi + a client on smartphone/computer (heavier but more efficient).
So I understand that you don't want to control anything - except the shutdown ?
- I don't think that the raspberry pi will complain if you unplug it 10 times a day (there is almost no writing on the sd card and this kind of board is quite strong)
- Maybe you could ask the raspberry pi to shutdown itself every 1-2 hour (but it would be a bit boring)
-I don't see why you want it "absolutely headless" : you just need one
button on the gpio.
