Re: Pi car music player advice

Just do it from your client. Those command run at startup only. Any subsequent commands from mpc or any other mpd client will override them. You'd only need to login and edit the script if you wanted different startup behaviour. Note that with a read only filesystem mpd won't be able to save its st...

Re: Pi car music player advice

I am using mpdroid when connected to the pi wirelessly. I understand the mpc commands in the config file and is set to random play which is done to fire up the playlist once booted up and playing in shuffle mode. I am trying to figure out if at any point I want to switch to playing an album in seque...

Re: Pi car music player advice

So I finally was able to set it up after days of screwing it up somehow. I learned so much about it though so not all is lost. My last problem was that I couldn't boot it up as usb storage and then realized I wasn't using a data cable! Doh! Anyway now I can focus on configuring the client. Still a l...

Re: Pi car music player advice

On the step for adding the mount point for the /music directory which drive am I actually specifying the boot drive? I have /dev/mmcblk0p1 there for /boot. Or is this something in /dev/root? Or is mmcblk0p3 something I can assign it to? UPDATE: I actually completed everything and works once again. I...

Re: Pi car music player advice

Did you need to do anything special to attach the phatdac like soldering it on? Trying to find out if I can handle doing it. If memory serves, I had to solder on the 40 pin headers to both the phat dac and the zero but if you don't want to solder the zero is now available with a pre-soldered header...

Re: Pi car music player advice

So there is really no way to have the voice activation in the car if the player won't have internet access. Maybe a natively installed voice application? I'm going to look at building something but it's very intimidating! You correctly answered your question again. It looks like you know all answer...

Thanks for this! I wonder why I can't convert these .odt files to be viewed in a doc or pdf hmm.
Dunno. But give me an hour and I'll have pdf versions up.
And done.
Thanks again. Not sure why I couldn't view them even with open office. I'm going to get reading!

Re: Pi car music player advice

You correctly answered all your questions :) The web server can be enabled in the player and it can be used to control the player from the network either wired or wireless. The player's wiki pages have some examples of using different hardware components including HiFiBerry amplifier: https://githu...

Re: Pi car music player advice

The player has voice assistant though you need the Internet connection for that. It leverages Google Assistant and you need Google account for this service. I'm planning to make it autonomous in the future. Here is the whole wish list: https://github.com/project-owner/PeppyPlayers.doc/wiki/Wish-Lis...
