Re: Peppy player

Brian,

The Peppy player already has a shutdown button. Here is another idea to restart your Pi.

Re: Peppy player

Thanks, I will email you the pictures and information when I am back at my desk.

The output is using the 3.5mm jack directly to the speaker system, no DAC.

The screen is 800 x 480. I am using the slide show screensaver so it becomes a picture frame for family pictures.

Re: Peppy player

If you could show the whole string which you crafted that could be helpful for others. SUBSYSTEM=="input", KERNEL=="event[0-9]*", ATTRS{idVendor}=="222a", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0001", SYMLINK+="input/touchscreen" This is for an Ilitek touchscreen as us...

Re: Peppy player

I believe that I have solved naming the touchscreen device for the ILITEK touchscreen. The problem is in finding the correct string to use in the ATTRS{name} parameter. Since I could not find that I went with using the ATTRS{idVendor} and ATTRS{idProduct} parameters instead. After a power cycle, I h...

Re: Peppy player

I have no documentation on the display. The display connects via HDMI the touchscreen connects via USB.
It works fine under x-windows.

What is the connection between the input device and Peppy player. Can one direct Peppy player to event6?

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Mike,
Yes, I started with Inkscape but could not get from there to Tinkercad to make a 3D model. I am sure that there are other ways to do it but as I said I have got what will work for me.
Thanks for your help.

As posted elsewhere here, did you try:

you can force audio to the jack using Raspi-config

sudo raspi-config

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

Hi When you say it only works for a small number of songs, are these songs that are queued up? If so, you can change the playqueue size on the skin file. Or maybe the no duplicates option is set and it's not letting you play songs that have been recently played before? Don't forget there is the aut...

Re: fruitbox MP3 jukebox

I would like to press a button and have fruitbox automatically play random songs until I press another button to stop playing songs. I tried ButtonAuto to start playing songs and ButtonSkip to stop the que. That works but only for a short number of songs. Than it stops.

What am I missing?
