    What skin are you using? I use Grid 800x600.

    I am using the Grud Skin 800 x 480. There doesnĺt appear to be a 600?

    Is this correct?

    My old Denon case...

    My old Denon DRA-565 receiver died almost two years ago. After buying a new amp I was questioning what to do with the old Denon. Inspired by the examples on this forum I decided to go for a Raspberry Pi based player built into the old Denon case and using the Denon VFD to display titles, menu etc. It ended up with lots of trials, software and hardware. I spent a lot of hours reading, learning and building and I finally got to the point yesterday where I closed the case. It's not finished completely because there is still some work on the remote IR control and I want to design a PCB for the VFD driver. But it's functional with the old volume control replaced by a rotary encoder and some old buttons connected to the GPIO.
    • Hardware:
      • Raspberry Pi 2 Model B,
      • Hifiberry AMP,
      • AMB σ11 regulated power supply (12VDC),
      • VFD driver (own design)
    • Software:
      • piCorePlayer 3.5.0
      • Slimmer
      • LCDProc
      • Pikeyd
      • A custom Python script for serial communication to the VFD driver

    Here are some pictures of the result:
