Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi all. Im sure this has been covered before, but I have checked back, an I am still confused. I have installed Fruitbox on my Pi 3B. However, I cannot get it to run.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hello Mike, thanks for the answer then I'll wait for the V2. I'm still annoyed with the Coin Acceptor and its functionality. I have now but still a question about the skin create.

I would like to use the following coins. 5 cents = 1 10 cents = 2 20 cents = 4 50 cents = 10 1 euro = 20 2 Euro = 40 Is it possible to set up 6 Coins in Fruitbox? A music request should cost 50 cents so 5 cents = 1 = 0.1 credi...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi Mike, are you still planning on releasing v2? I hit a problem a few months back using a virtual keyboard (see my earlier post) and was holding off on diagnosing it until the new version was available. Hi, Yes I am.

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Ohhh... How do I choose the fonts in the skin? The mp3 metadata can take Chinese characters, that I know. But I am not sure how to set the fonts in the skin, or to modify a skin to use the Chinese/ Japanese font. Are you able to point me in the right direction? Thanks! The skin is described by a te...

Hi Mike In Joystick mode is it possible to set it so that pressing a direction doesn't scroll pages? For example, pressing left when you're on the left side of the page scrolls to the next page but I'd prefer to lock this and have it specifically done with the PageJump button. Hi, No that's not pos...

Hi, I am using SortSongsBy with a Custom sort using the TSOT ID3 tag. I numbered my tracks in the order I would like them to appear but it is sorting alphanumerically rather than numerically. For example my desired sort order is 1,2,3,10,200,300, etc. Instead the sort behaves like this: 1,10,2,200,...

How to shutdown safely- do I press escape to quit the program and then need to execute some command before turning power off?
fruitbox has a PowerOff button, mapped to keyboard F12 by default. See userguide section 10.1

Ok, Newbie back with a different monitor question…if I use a 32” LG OLED tv thru HDMI out of the pi can the sound play thru this? The tv supposedly has stereo speakers. Do you use the ARC return input on the monitor? There are many different HDMI cable qualities…which is the minimum spec- 4K, etc.?...
