    Announce piCorePlayer 3.20

    Hi guys, we are sorry for the late announcement - but pCP 3.20 has been released.

    KERNEL/FIRMWARE changes
    • 4.9.21 kernel
    • rpi firmware - 2017/03/31
    • config.txt changes to increase usable memory on rpi2/3 by 16M
    • config.txt changes to decrease videocore memory usage.
    • rpi Zero-W Support
    • Allo Boss and Piano-Plus Support
    • Changed 8192cu driver (same version that OSMC uses)
    • 8812au driver included


    Other PCP changes

    • Squeezelite updated to v1.86-945
    • ffmpeg updated to 3.17
    • wiringpi shared libraries included by default. (Used to be static linked to squeezelite).
    • flac updated to 1.3.2
    • utf8 support for fat32 partitions
    • New card configuration system, will help with speed on squeezelite page. Also allows us to add more specific card information.
    • Set --nomysqueezebox option from web interface
    • Default LMS install is 7.9.0 released verison
    • Great updates to pCP jivelite pacakge. Made possible by mherger
    • pcp Help web site http://picoreplayer.sourceforge.net.
    • This is still a work in progress, where we can easily create web pages with HOTO's and other information. If you have something you would like included, creates a simple web page and let us know.
    • And last but not least, corrections to the inplace update process
    • Reloading the reboot page should no longer reboot your pCP device again.
    • You can now do an insitu_update and change from pcpCore to pcpAudioCore, and vise versa.


    For the adventuresome 3.11 users reading this, If you do a hotfix (Near the bottom of the Main Page in Beta Mode), this will install a small fix, that will allow you to do an insitu_update to 3.20.
    By my tests, if you are using a 3.11 image, when you install 3.20, you should have about 180k of disk space left on the boot partition. 99% Full. In my mind this is a bit risky, but I suppose if your card is not easily pulled, give this a try. Worse case you have to pull your card and reflash.

    Works just fine on my 2 rpi3 systems, and my zero-w systems. Must be an issue with your router setup, more than likely channel configuration.

    I have the same experience. 3.11 audio works perfectly, but 3.20 audio cannot find my wifi network using the scan option.

    Back to 3.11 for me!

    Wifi has never been recommended with the Audio version, I should just disable wifi in that version.

    Thank you for this new version

    I've done in-situ upgrades of a Pi2+IQaudio PiDAC+, a Pi3 and Pi3+touchscreen+IQaudio PiDACZero, all without apparent issues.

    Works perfectly for me. I updated Insitu from 3.11 using the instructions above. I've been quite happily listening to music and radio since.

    Finally up and running on Pi3B server/player with Arcam rPac external DAC and Pi3Bplayer with Topping VX2 external DAC/Amp. No issues, don't use wifi.

    During the transition:

    1.The SD card latch on my old Pi2B player finally gave up the ghost and had to get a Pi3B replacement. Considered using epoch1970's NetBoot but found out only available on Pi3's.

    2.One of my Homeplug units developed an intermittent fault and had to be replaced.

    3.I was trying to test bpa's BBC iPlayer enchancement to receive the BBC Radio 3 test flac stream.

    It took a while.
    Music Store: Synology DS215J NAS
    Home Server/Player:
    LMS 7.9.1 on Pi 3B piCorePlayer v3.22 Server/IQAudio DAC+/Amp+
    Portable Server/Player: LMS 7.9.1 on HP-DV2700 Laptop/Ubuntu 17.10 with synced music drive.
    Homeplug LAN Players: Pi 3B piCorePlayer v3.22/HDMI/Jivelite, Squeezelite on Windows 10 PC

    I'm using an MCE remote, but using the lircd remote setup. Don't know if anyone has setup for the USB receiver. There's something called FLIRC which is USB dongle which also works - you program to turn remote codes into virtual keyboard keypresses which work in jivelite.
