    BETA: piCorePlayer6.0.0 - PI4 support

    Updated: Feb 24, 2020 Short and sweet announcement, but for those that have a new PI4 and want to use pCP......Only an image is offered, as we had to increase partition sizes to accommodate the PI4 firmware/kernels. One image still supports all rpi boards.....

    Latest Release Candidate

    Latest AudioCore RC. <——For tweakers.

    • Many changes to the Bluetooth support (Update bluetooth extension if doing insitu_updates)
    • Alsaequal now supports Bluetooth devices. Settings can be changed only when device is connected, but settings are retained.
    • Reduced image sizes by using new multi initrd boot.
    • Web pages are now in an extension (No longer in /home/tc/www) For faster boots,backups and easier www updates.
    • NOTE: pcp_startup.sh is now in /usr/local/etc/init.d/

    Known issues:
    • Boot from USB on pi3 devices is not working with dual initrd. Waiting for feedback from RPi.

    pCP 6.0.0-b7(Obsolete)
    • PI4 Only: Removed 32bit PI4 kernel, 64bit PI4 kernel is the only one available.
    • All other PI's use the 32bit kernel as before.
    • Added support for mirror repo. (Select at bottom of web page)
    • Fix a few web page issues.
    • Insitu Upgrade available.

    • Kernel 4.19.80
    • RPi Firmware 2019/10/29
    • Boot from USB for Pi devices that support it should work now (Not on PI4 yet). You will need to manually increase the waitusb= parameter in cmdline.txt so that your USB stick is detected. I have to use waitusb=5 on my sticks.
    • Fixed Allo DigiOne driver. (https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/issues/3296)
    • Improved Allo USBridgeSig support. Burn the image and boot it.
    • Simplification of the pCP modes. There is now just a "Player" and "Player/Server" mode. There is still a beta mode, but that is really beta stuff.
    • Updated to Squeezelite 1198.
    • alsa updated, so now the list of output devices show hw: and plughw:
    • Removed the DSD binary option. The regular Binary supports DOP/full DSD now.
