    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

    I have a freshly assembled "piTouch" using PI3B with official touch screen.

    Connecting it to TEAC UD-501 from PI on board USB via good quality USB cable.
    Audio output device settings set to USB audio, Output setting to "front:CARD=UD501,DEV=0", ALSA setting to " 80 4 nothing 1 nothing".
    Other setting unchanged from default. Wired network.

    TEAC is receiving and playing the data, but i get clicks, pops, dropouts even with 44.1/16 material

    Tried 64bit Picoreplayer, now on 32bit, tried different output settings, different USB cables, went from 64bit to 32bit, problem still persists.

    My old Squeezebox Touch with EDO plugin connected to same Squeezeserver via same switch can play material up to 192/24 via SPDIF and toslink without any issues at all, so it's unlikely a network issue I believe.

    Any suggestions regarding the USB output setting for TEAC or how to approach this to find the root cause?

    After some fiddling with settings it seems I solved the clicks problem, thanks you all who participated!
    Tested since a couple of days with PCM up to 192 and DSD64 (DoP) and haven't noticed any problems so far.

    So here are my setting to run TEAC UD-501 via USB from PI3B, might be useful for somebody with same PI/DAC combo:

    Output setting hw:CARD=UD501,DEV=0
    ALSA setting 160:4::1:
    Buffer size settings 20000:60000
    Device supports DSD/DoP 250

    250ms PCM to DSD delay was crucial to get correct click-free DSD playback. Without this setting DAC surprisingly still plays, but indicates the signal as PCM 352.8 and there are dropouts/clicks, with the delay indication is DSD 2.8mhz and there are no playback errors

    Great idea, many thanks.
    Have scheduled an auto-restart of Squeezelite every Sunday at 5am.

    Disable onboard audio

    Disable SPI
    Remove the spi=on from the line
    Code:
    deparam=i2c_arm=on,spi=on,i2s=on
    Then on the Squeezelite page, make sure you limit the sample rate to 48000.

    Also, make sure you do not play any music until you have turned down the Limit Threashold as described in the docs. If you try to play music with the default Alsa settings, it will likely lockup the amplifier chip requiring a reboot.

    Once things are set in alsa mixer, then you should save the alsa settings on the "Card Control" Page.

    I'll see about adding some better controls in pCP7.
    Just to say I did this and now works cheers.

    PCP 7.0.1

    1) mounted /mnt/mmcblk0p1/
    2) edited /mnt/mmcblk0p1/config.txt as described
    3) Reboot, music now plays

    I spent some time trying to find the answer, and failed...

    I use a few piCorePlayers at home and I'd love to be able to monitor some basic metrics - like the WiFi strength, CPU usage, temperature. Is there an extension or API that would allow me to get that? I use Home Assistant, but anything that spits out a JSON should be fine.

    for temps, go to piCorePlayer wegGUI, main page > Diagnostics > Rasberry Pi and you'll see CPU temp.

    Hi friends!
    Is it possible to assemble the PCP for Khadas VIM & Tone Board?

    I think the VIM is very different from the Pi, so it is probably not supported by piCorePlayer, but lets let the team chime in. Since the VIM runs Ubuntu and other distros, there is a chance you could make it work, but it might be dicey.

    I do have a Tone 1 board connected to a Pi 3B+ running piCorePlayer 7 via USB and it works great. I can't see a huge reason to try to run the VIM with piCorePlayer.

    Yes, they are different, that's why I ask.
    Ok, thanks, I'll give it a try Tone board 1 on Pi 3B+
    Which DAC to choose from the PCP list?

    PS
    Will a bunch of Pi3b+ & PCP work with tone board 2?

    Odd error

    Had my pi4b running for nearly a week now and noticed an error in the pcp_boot.log and was wondering if any of you experienced guys could shed some light ?



    In the background, ntpd is syncing time between piCorePlayer and the internet.
    A large offset between 1970 and now is normal.
    /usr/local/slimserver/Bin/armhf-linux/sox FAIL sox: `-' error writing output file: Broken pipe
    /usr/local/slimserver/Bin/armhf-linux/sox FAIL sox: `-' error writing output file: Broken pipe

    -: ERROR while decoding metadata
    state = FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_END_OF_STREAM


    Thanks
