    Simple rotary encoder and button's for controlling Jivelite

    I'm making a look a like transporter of an old philips 900 series tapedeck.

    To controll Jivelite on a 3.5" screen i ordred ATmega32U4 5 V/16 MHz Module and programmed it according to this website: Buttonbox

    You can assign the rotary encoders to up and down, volume up / down, what ever you want. The raspberry will see it as an extra keyboard

    Just sharing, maybe you can use it in a next project

    That's really cool, emulating a USB keyboard is a nice way of doing it!

    I'm currently trying to get https://github.com/mmoller2k/pikeyd installed on PCP with luck, going for an arduino, or maybe even an attiny may be a better option.

    Hello, Did you manage to get pikeyd working?

    Could you give some hints where to get started and how to install it?

    Thanks!

    That source code will only work with a PI1,2,zero, it won’t work with the PI3 or newer. As it doesn’t have the correct Peripheral base address. There are some forks with the pi3 address coded, but then it won’t support the older pies.

    What do you want to know. ?

    Do you have all the neccesary things ?

    I orderd the following on aliexpress :

    board
    encoders

    en flash the board with the code to be found on buttonbox

    If you dm me, i will send/mail you my code.

    After flashing you can connect it to your raspberry and you have an extra keyboard
