Re: Headless start

Check your /boot/config.txt file
In the Device Tree section you might have a hash sign # in front of the soundcard entry

It should look like this

# Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)
#dtparam=audio=on
dtoverlay=i2s-mmap
dtoverlay=googlevoicehat-soundcard

Re: New setup, new edition. action.py?

Hi again you,

Thursten one of the reasons you may want to migrate to the newer versions is that the voicekit (and shortly the aiyprojects) branches can interact with you in languages other than english if that isn't your language of choice.

Re: New setup, new edition. action.py?

Hello again Thursten, The new software is quite different. There is this guide which you can download for free https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/issues/essentials-aiy-v1/ Unfortunately it focuses on using the cloudspeech api rather than the assistant api. You haven't said which branch your running -...

Re: Button only

yes - one easy way is rather than run assistant_library_with_button_demo
run src/examples/voice/assistant_grpc_demo.py

Google updated the Assistant recently and one of the changes is that it now has an extra parameter model-id. So the AIY team did the following 1. Updated their code to add the extra parameter (which you have just removed) 2. Updated the requirements so that you can call scripts/install-deps.sh and i...

Re: Assistant Library from December 20th, language support

@Ophelia - my understanding is that the voicekit branch has now been updated to allow you to interact in other languages.

Please note that those amendments have not yet been made to the aiyprojects branch

Re: Google AIY Voice Kit

Hi, You can still use it as a desktop computer.

If you download the images - you will find they have all the standard desktop software, browser, programming stuff and so on.

Alternatively you can clone the AIY software onto your existing installation.

Re: Google assistant audio truncates at the beginning.

It isn't an AIY issue.

The only post I found that seems similar is viewtopic.php?t=107596

It recommends adding the following line to /boot/config.txt

Re: Servo demo problems

You need a cloudspeech credentials file called cloud_speech.json that lives in the /home/pi/ folder.

To get the file you need to sign up for cloudspeech with google which means you also need to sign up for billing - they need your card details.

You do get 60 minutes free each month
