Since there is already a Debian / ARM distro available (and recommended) for the Pi, and ARM emulators to do the compiling on, it should be fairly easily to build a distibution with equivalent capabilities as VoyageMPD(which is Debian based) (and mpdpup for that matter) for the Raspberry Pi..

That sounds good.

I have been toying with angstrom and the beaglebone device that I have (based on a ti arm processor) if I get something positive could provide images suitable for that combination also with optimisations for mpd and music playback.

I'm just at the beginning of my learning curve for embeded linux though so don't expect anything too soon.

Another poster drew my attention to puppy linux. He claimed the quality with the beaglebone was worth investigating. That drew me to discover mpdpup. Here the author takes all the work out of learning linux as he has wizards to configure everything.

Sorry I should have been a bit more clear, I'm not looking for an out of the box mpd system. I have a more expansive plan for the use of beagle bone in my system that includes control/automation as well. I can get around 'normal' linux distros quite painlessly but building/customising/cross-compiling an embeded linux distro is something I want to learn for my own personal curiosity.

I was just letting the waveio users know that my project may later this year (for testing/development version) produce something that I can make available for other users and if I can I will make it so that it can even further remove the entry threshold for those concerned about learning curve associated linux. I am thinking pre-loaded sdcards to make the computer almost an appliance.

When I have something to share I will open up a thread for discussion

Smile my wave io came in...

Hi Lucian,

I received the piece-of-art by post yesterday. In perfect order, not broken or bent!
You did such a beautiful job in building the card. Can't imagine how you do it!
I think a leave it on my desk for the next few days just to look at it. After the weekend it has to do were it is designed for,
I`ll let you know how I like it's sound later,
A happy person,
ED

Unhappy No higher bitrate than 16 connecting via SPDIF-Buff III possible

Hi Lucian and all!

Could not wait longer with just trying the Wave IO on my Buff III.
What I did , after installing your latest drivers, was for simplicity
reason, connecting to the isolated SPdif. USB powered.
Sound was beautiful, but the guy only worked on 16/44.1.

Reinstalled the driver,

Changed USB 3 connection on my PC to USB 2,

Gave him extern power: a 0,5 amp shuntreg (Placid HD from TP, 50mil. shunt),

No change in behavior!

Maybe an idea what I possibly did wrong?
Must say I will eventually use the I2S coax outputs to the Buff III.

Have a nice weekend,

Ed

Hello Ed,
is Windows running on your PC and what type of player are you using? As written on my private reply to you, make sure that your music is not killed by Windows KMixer.sys Try to bypass it by running WaveIO in ASIO, WASAPI or Kernel Streaming mode.
Cheers,
L

Hi, Lorien, Thanks for your reply!

Did not get the E-mail.(until now...)
I work on W7 Ult. 64 bits.
Player is XXHighEnd , latest version.
I managed getting it work up to 24/192! In Wasapi however.
Trying in KS does not work higher than 16/44. Which is a pity because I miss a lot of settings in the program to let it sound optimal.
Maybe I2S-coax works in a different way. I will need some more time to work that out. I'll let you know,
All the best,
Ed
