Re: Looking for a case for Pi with Wolfson sound card

I've just replied to your e-mail regarding the purchase on Amazon. I do need the Pi B version case, and also will need the B+ version with the new card if you can make it. I am a beginner at this, I wanted to see if I can use the Pi to act as a substitute Squuezebox client to work with my existing P...

Re: Looking for a case for Pi with Wolfson sound card

PD: I just received an order from Berkshire, UK AMAZON !! :o That was me. saw it, bought it... I can't find dimensions technical data on the Cirrus Logic site. How accurate do you need the dimensions? If you know the dimensions for the Pi B+ motherboard, I could probably measure my Wolfson card and...

Re: Looking for a case for Pi with Wolfson sound card

Killor, thanks, that looks interesting. How do i go about buying one? (Can you PM me with details?) (Sorry, just seen the Amazon reference, I'll look there). Just one thing, there is now a Wolfson card for the Pi B+, so I guess you need to get back to the drawing board(!). What would be involved in ...

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi version 7.50

Update on Squeezeplug losing USB wireless etc. I've gone back to the Squeezeplug 7.50 image and installed it and Squeezelite using the onboard Pi sound system, and Squeezelite has now been happily playing away for the last hour or so. At some stage in the setup process, I lost the Wireless LAN conne...

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi version 7.50

Thanks for this, the new /boot files got the keyboard working, so at least I can login now, but no network (via USB wireless dongle) and several errors that fly off the screen during boot up that are probably relevant. (Are the boot displays logged anywhere so I can read them at my leisure?) I've de...

Looking for a case for Pi with Wolfson sound card

Hi, I'm in the process of setting up a Pi B and a Pi B+ with their relevant Wolfson and Wolfson / Cirrus Logic sound cards attached but I can't find a decent case for either configuration. Can anyone suggest where I can get one ready made, or is it a case (excuse the pun) of building one from scratc...

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi version 7.50

Re Squeezeplug test sound not working. I tried just running it with SqueezeLite installed, and it works fine with my PC-Based Logitech Media Server. I had to adjust the Squeezelite buffer size to get it to play without stuttering, but it has been playing for an hour now with no problem. Thanks. Now,...

I guess so...

Should've done the sound test before I did the Squeezelite installation. Told you you're dealing with an idiot.

I'll try using Squeezelite and see if it works. Thanks.

Re: SqueezePlug for Raspberry Pi version 7.50

Apologies if this is not the right place for this, but this is my first post on this forum, and I couldn't find anywhere better. I am trying to get Squeezeplug to work with Squeezelite on a Pi B with the Wofson sound card installed. I can't get beyond the Squeezeplug sound test stage. I have created...
