    Community Build Radio Firmware

    Carrying on the radio firmware build discussion from the Bass Amp Problem thread.

    I'll load it onto one of my Radios. Certainly worth checking.
    No worries. Thanks.

(Update context-menu styles to use icons for playlist control actions. and Task B0020: Player control over UDP). I'd be surprised if the lua enhancements were the cause of higher cpu usage, but I haven't checked. I'll try and look at that.
    I had the same issue as I'd committed my changed to git in the 7.7 branch and it increased the revision number. I used bvi to modified the version strings in the jive binary to match the original firmware version.

    I'm still testing the 7.7 aac decoder changes on my one radio, so I haven't explored the possible performance degradation I perceived. But I'd agree that the lua changes do seem unlikely to be the cause. Or that there is really a difference.

I suspect that it is there to prevent a "converted to LMS Smart Radio" from inadvertently downgrading to an earlier firmware that doesn't recognize the Smart Radio hardware (revision 8 ?).
    No. I hadn't noticed that that change was missing from the 7.8 branch. I've forked the logitech squeezeos repo and will merge 7.7 and continue all further development on 7.8 as the 7.7 changes are available in the source tarball from a few days ago and were really only to confirm the aac changes were doable.
