    Announce: piCorePlayer 3.10

    Hi, the team are proud to announce the release of a new piCorePlayer 3.10.
    Because of the many changes and improvements and bug fixes and additions we decided to jump directly from version 3.02 to 3.10.

    Actually, we have released two versions:
    1. piCorePlayer3.10 which is a normal version like all previous pCP releases. The kernel and modules are vanilla versions from the official raspberry and piCore (tinycore) repo.

    2. piCorePlayer3.10-Audio version. This version contain all the same improvements as the above mentioned version. But in addition we have added all the audio related patches that Clive (aka JackOfAll) made for the raspberry kernel. So here we have support for more i2s-DACs and we support higher sample rates etc.



    • Kernel 4.4.39.
    • Samba Server Implemented in Beta Mode
    • Squeezelite is now dynamically linked.
    • Advanced audio card control - let you control output level, available DTP filters, and parameter to dtoverlay.
    • Shairport-Sync updated to a lighter weight
    • New pcp extension repository, hopefully more stable.
    • Numerous under the hood changes and bug fixes.


    As we have so many changes we unfortunately are unable to offer "in situ" update - so will need to burn the image (after unzipping the download) to your SD-card. Also the "newconfig method" via USB stick wont work for this version.

    Please notice and try these additions (from "Squeezelite" web page choose "Advanced Options":

    Please note that we are now distributing the images as "zip" files.

    We decided to do this to:

    1. reduce the download time from sourceforge which is not a fastest at the best of time.

    1. improve download reliability


    Also, there is a md5 file, so you can check the zip has downloaded correctly.

    Samba Server

    Thanks for all your hard work!

    I notice this is an SD card pull so I'll wait till my 11 month old wakens tomorrow as she has grown to rely on her white noise.

    I'll let you know if summit breaks

    Thanks again all involved.

    I just tested again, works for me from my iphone (running ios 10.2) Can you explain your configuration a little bit?

    Installed and going.

    The team
    Paul, Greg, Ralphy and Steen ,
    Downloaded, installed and going. Thank you all.

    The longest part of the install for me was getting the Word Clock screensaver coloured in.
    http://forums.slimdevices.com/showth...l=1#post859683 , took me a while to remember how to hack the SD card with WinSCP ( I edited my post on the page after Arie's post for next time).

    The pCp is running on a RPi 2.01, with a Kali re-clocker, Allo Piano 1 DAC (the one with the headphone amp as well as analog) and the rPi 7" Touch screen.

    Is there somewhere in the pCp web page where you detail the pCp hardware ?
    It might be handy if the About tab included a list of hardware detected - such as RPi model, wireless dongle type, DAC if it can be detected, screen and any other add ons such as the Kali.

    What we can detect is in sections.....like wifi stick is in the wifi diagnostics. The rest of the stuff is in the diagnostics screen off of the main page.

    As far as I know, I2s devices are not detectable.

    Thanks paul, now, is the little yellow lightning bolt that shows briefly top left on the touch screen indicating network activity or just a homage to Harry Potter?

    The lightning bolt is an indicator of a too weak power supply. So if you experience problems you should get a better power supply.
