Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

Benjamin, is the bluetooth bug present in the current LibreELEC release as well?

In case you're not aware, LibreELEC is a recent fork of OpenELEC, and nearly all the developers seem to have moved to it.

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

Benjamin, would you be willing to share your board design files, parts list, EEPROM code, etc? I don't need a board today, but I expect the ability to make one would come in handy if my TinyTOSLINK ever dies, or if I end up building a media player for a friend.

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

I have received my tiny toslink very quickly so I have to thank Jorg. I have a RPi 2 and I have openelec 5.0.8 installed through noob setup. I did the folowing changes to config.txt dtoverlay=hifiberry-digi dtdebug=1 I also have tvheadend installed in order to watch TV channels. When I enable the A...

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

Is anyone else seeing occasional jerkiness / uneven motion when using the TinyTOSLINK with Kodi? It happens to me on OpenELEC with Adjust Display Refresh Rate enabled, and Sync Playback to Display disabled. It doesn't seem to happen when I use HDMI audio output instead of the TinyTOSLINK.

I got the TinyToslink to work with Openelec 5.0.8 with editing the config.txt in windows on the SD card I just inserted the line: dtoverlay=hifiberry-digi But then I installed the Openelec "OpenELEC-RPi2.arm-5.95.3.img" on a SD card it give me this error then I typed "dmesg" OpenELEC 5.95.3 broke i...

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

Why are all you people posting "I want one" messages to this public thread? Those of us subscribed to the thread get email every time you post. I realize that Jörg's device is exciting, but unless you have something relevant to add to the discussion, I think just sending the PM would be sufficient.

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

For some time I've had a HifiBerry Digi on an original Pi model B (running PiCoreplayer Squeezebox client) but always felt it didn't look good (might have been the case I hacked!) and more recently I've had a budget PiFi Digi+ on a Pi A+. The big advantage of the Tiny Toslink card is the ability to...

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

I've been told that beyond the bandwidth issue, there's a lack of protocol support for the HD 7.1 formats on TOSLINK or coax S/PDIF. Nobody have stepped forward with references yet, but I'm starting to believe them.

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

Since this little wonder can apparently handle 24 bits and a 192 kHz sample rate, I wonder: Can it pass through high def audio bitstreams like DTS-HD Master Audio and Dolby TrueHD?

RPi vs. RPi2 high bitrate videos over ethernet

I'm aware of the various tweaks to get the old model to play 1080p videos from a network, but even after tweaking, there are reports (like this one ) that it still stutters on high bit rate files when played over NFS or SMB. Larger Blu-ray rips that have large or multiple audio streams apparently pu...

Re: XBMC: Play 1080p mkv in streaming with windows share (SM

I use XBMC for play .mkv files (1080p also with DTS), I open the .mkv files on XBMC via smb (windows share); but when there is a high bitrate the video and audio became stutter. The problem, I think, is that the bandwith is not enough. The Raspberry Pi's ethernet interface is limited to 100mbit, fu...

Re: Best USB Gig-Ethernet adapter?

RPi can handle MOST of the 1080p stuff over the network (wired ethernet 100Mbit). But I have a couple of BluRay rips that require more than the ethernet can handle. After extensive testing with various BRD's and re-testing the same content over a direct attached USB drive, I've concluded that it's ...

Re: TinyTOSLINK (digital audio output) now for B+, too

Jörg, this is outstanding. It fills a gap that kept me away from the Raspberry Pi for use as a media player.

Do you know whether it will work on the Raspberry Pi 2?
