What could be causing the drop outs as the dropouts do not occur when only one pi is working?

If you set the MAC address to the same on multiple players. LMS uses MAC address to uniquly identify players, or, general network problems. If you are using wifi things like the microwave and cause dropouts.

Thanks for having a look.
As alsaequal seems to be installed in the picoreplayer distribution natively I thought it may be of use to others who may need equalization.
Not sure if it can be implemented within picoreplayer though if alsaequal uses a web interface.
There seems to be some action regarding alsaequal. Some guys have it wokring on piCore. No promises though.

Thanks. It is good fun working with Steen and the other guys on this project.

turn off HDMI
 
Hi,

In raspian you can turn off the HDMI port: /usr/bin/tvservice -o

and save ~30mA

is tvservice somewhere in picoreplayer?

Thanks!

hi sckramer,

We haven't included tvservice in piCorePlayer by default, but if you install the piCore extension rpi-vc.tcz it is in there.

I haven't tested it.

Slick extension system, didn't know about that...

It did seem to work:

tc@piCorePlayerZERO:/usr/local/bin$ sudo /usr/local/bin/tvservice -o
Powering off HDMI
tc@piCorePlayerZERO:/usr/local/bin$ sudo /usr/local/bin/tvservice -p
Powering on HDMI with preferred settings
tc@piCorePlayerZERO:/usr/local/bin$ sudo /usr/local/bin/tvservice -o
Powering off HDMI

Thanks for the update.

ffmpeg version is bigger (12 MB) and allows in addition playback of ALAC and WMA via build in ffmpeg. In the Main page you can choose which version you will use.
I am unable to start squeezelite with ffmpeg version.
No matter what I try I get this:
Squeezelite is not running less>

With basic version it is ok however I have alot of alac files so.....

hi sckramer,

Thanks for reporting back.

A word of caution about adding piCore extensions. piCorePlayer is a very small image, about 70MB, so you can quickly fill up the free space. This free space is also used by insitu-upgrade. So you will need to increase the size of the partition at some time.

Also, when you do an upgrade, you will need to reinstall your extensions.

regards

hi bambadoo,

I just did the change to the ffmpeg squeezelite here and of course it worked properly. :)

Did squeezelite complete the download?

Did you run out of space?

Do you have jivelite loaded?

Did you do a FS resize?

A df at the Linux command prompt will tell all.

bambadoo 23rd December 2015 08:45 PM

Yes I believe so

Did you run out of space?
Maybe?

Do you have jivelite loaded?
No

Did you do a FS resize?
No

A df at the Linux command prompt will tell all.

Great news. :D

We will have to add more help info and checks for free space as we are finding more people wanting to add some extras and running out of space.
