    BETA: piCorePlayer 4.0.0

    We have been hard at work the last few months. There has been some significant changes to the wifi system, so we want to release a public beta, as our hardware configurations that we have to test on are limited.

    pCP 4.0.0 BETA6
    • Launching new web site www.picoreplayer.org.
    • Kernel 4.14.56
    • AudioCore kernel 4.14.56-rt34. All RPi processors supporting Realtime Kernels.
    • RPi Firmware 2018/07/17
    • Completely rebuilt wifi. Web interface with hidden wifi, special characters
    • Added driver for rtl8188eu chipset
    • Static IP support for Ethernet or wifi.
    • For those that have seen occasions kernel panics at boot, this should be fixed.


    Repo Updates
    • Update to Squeezelite v1.9.0-1111
    • Updated Bluez to 5.50
    • Updated LMS binaries (flac and sox are now significantly faster, upgrade perl cyrpto libraries)


    DAC Additions
    • Allo Katana
    • Google voiceHat
    • pCP default kernel now supports 384k on a good number of DAC's



    PS, I'm not going to give you the direct download links, because I want you to go see our new website. Insitu Update is also supported.

    oops, forgot to update the production area of sourceforge.....since 3.5.0 still looks there I've got two files to update. It will download a new file, then kick you over to our new server.

    I just updated the files in the production folders. Sourceforge has a stupid CDN now, it doesn't always detect when I change a file............................... (The dots are me waiting for it to refresh)

    It looks like is updated now

    1. Congratulations for the new site. Really like it. Maybe add the link to the list of "working USB Dacs" to it since - from my point of view - it's very helpful information for others.

    2. Thanks for the 4.0 version. I updated via insitu the standard version. In my case not all settings were taken over from the earlier version. I needed to disable the Raspberry Pi Built-in Audio in the Card Control settings as well as to fill out the Output settings. Now everything works fine.

    3. I have a general pCP question (which I already asked in another thread): will pCP work with Kef's Ls50 wireless? And if "yes" what kind of settings are required? Btw... my LMS runs on my NAS.
    Thanks in advance.

    Your usb device is taking too long to become ready at boot. You need to add some delay. On the extras menu, there is a bootcodes screen. Increase the value of waitusb.

    .

    We are not sure how to handle this.....but we do see folks using that page. The wifi page isnĺt as useful anymore.

    2. Thanks for the 4.0 version. I updated via insitu the standard version. In my case not all settings were taken over from the earlier version. I needed to disable the Raspberry Pi Built-in Audio in the Card Control settings as well as to fill out the Output settings. Now everything works fine.
    Are you using USB? We have always had that problem, we always reload the card defaults during the upgrade, and USB has no standard way of picking the output. But, perhaps I can adjust that....

    3. I have a general pCP question (which I already asked in another thread): will pCP work with Kef's Ls50 wireless? And if "yes" what kind of settings are required? Btw... my LMS runs on my NAS.
    Thanks in advance.
    We have no way of knowing, unless we have hardware to test..... I doubt anyone is willing to donate $2000 speakers for us to test. Thatĺs why we started the user reported DAC table on google docs.
