    OK I will reload the TF cards with the latest and start over. ( getting experienced with that ) and I can try the the insitu upgrade , as it is within the 3.20 release ? lets find out.

    I can't imagine I ever payed for such a size card, it must have been one of the 'useless' size cards I got with a blackberry, or canon camera.
    Please link me to the scripts and I will see If I can read / tweak the script myself to push this tiny card to the max, just for fun.
    Some other 'big' 1 Gig cards here work as test/demonstration LMS storage too.

    Understood. In my situation where multiple TF cards go in multiple raspberries with fixed IPs/DNS names based on dongle mac address, and some of them going to the same amp, it is so easy to erase the wrong one. It has happened on a few occasions. So I use the hostname and playername to remind me what is. Similar I use the LMS names to keep them apart and check what player has connected to what server.
    Before I used PCP I even had multiple instances of squeezelight on one pi, to verify sound quality differences between usb, builtin and HAT DAC's

    Perhaps you can just put both in the message box ? .. rebooting player X on host Y ... would be both correct and more informative and intuitive ( for me ) and have a pass across all messages to keep them logical and in line.

    Regards, MH

    Support for Wolfson audio card?

    Hi there,

    Great work on piCorePlayer. I have several Pis at home and they are all working really well.

    I do have a spare one that has a Wolfson card in it, but unfortunately this card hasn't been supported.

    I see this new version of piCorePlayer is based on kernel 4.9.17, which I believe has support for the Wolfson audio card:

    http://forum.tinycorelinux.net/index...msg129631.html

    Would it be possible to get this working with piCorePlayer?

    Thanks,
    Pete

    Yes I think we could try.
    But as we don't have a wolfson card we need info from you.

    Can you ssh into the latest piCorePlayer3.20 beta 7
    1. Mount mmcblk0p1 (by using the command: m1)
    2. Edit mnt/mmcblk0p1/config.txt - here you add dtoverlay=rpi-cirrus-wm5102 - then save your changes.
    3. Then reboot
    4. Then ssh into pCP again.
    5. Please report the content of:
    6. aplay -l
    7. squeezelite -l

    Great !
    I've been waiting 2 years to do something useful with my 2! spare cards ( cirrus Logic version )
    Can someone direct me to the B7 download ?, else I have to use the B5 for the moment.

    Definitely seems like the card wants something else. Do you have the card working on a different system?

    Getting a module list from a working and then the pCP system would help (lsmod)

    No I do not have a working setup anymore, but I will get a copy of raspbian and see if can make it work, to compare it against.

    The pcp320B7 setup a has the same results, as posted above from pcp320B5

    And noteworthy : The green led on the clac dims during the boot , but also trurns back on.
    If I remember correctly , the led needs to dim from the correct driver installation.
    However it is a long time ago...

    Just make sure you are using stock raspbian. In the past the Wolfson support was a out of tree driver, the support has only recently been added to the rpi kernel. Let us know what you can..... Also, which card are you using, the old Wolfson card, or the element 14 cirrus logic replacement one? https://www.adafruit.com/product/1761

    Indeed, stock Raspbian installed , updated upgraded to
    Linux raspberrypi-jessie-test-clac 4.9.22+ #987 Fri Apr 14 23:13:48 BST 2017 armv6l GNU/Linux

    overlay set and tweaked the alsa card enumeration to give the Cirrus Logic Audio Card to be 0:
    pi@raspberrypi-jessie-test-clac:~ $ aplay -l
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: RPiCirrus [RPi-Cirrus], device 0: WM5102 AiFi wm5102-aif1-0 []

    Subdevices: 1/1
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

    For clarity, I am using the newer Cirrus Logic Audio Card of element 14 , directly compatible with the Raspberry pi Bplus running Raspbian Jessie.

    Sound from aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav
    is audible through the headset output,
    And the green CLAC led is indeed switched of after driver load , like the old days .

    I will setup a second set with pcp320B7 and the same CLAC on a Bplus , to do a bit efficient side by side comparisons.
    Please let me know what info you would like to see to crack the last bits for this soundcard to star in PCP.
    I appreciate the help paul- !

    For now, .. I need my sleep cycles too, or in other words: going in low powermode for a few hours.
    Regards MH
