Hello guys, finally another release of RaspyFi is out! This is the RC1, as it proved to be stable and it brings you lot of quality improvements, as with other features included:
-512 mb model b support (but 256 models should work as well)
-based on latest raspbian image (2012-12-16-wheezy-raspbian)
-XMOS Native support (Hiface 2 is reported to be working)
-less space used and less processes active (shrinked to minimum requirements to get mpd running)
-fits on 2gb sd carD
-fat32 disk ready out of the boX
-volume can be set from client (Erik, this is for you!!)
-general quality improvements
-hdmi & analog audio disabled (no bcm2835 kernel module loaded at boot)
-mpd has higher priority set
-resampling always enabled to 44100 htrz
UPDATE YOUR DATABASE FOR FIRST USE!
It Works out of the box with most of USB Dacs! (supported natively by linux) It works also with XMOS Transports (Hiface 2 is reported to be working!)
This is no more based on moebius linux, it is instead based on latest raspbian (updated at 12\1\13). It is definetely sounding better and it features some under the hood tweaking that proved to be effective. It is ready out of the box to play your library from a FAT32 usb stick or self powered hard disk. (IF you need ntfs support you should mount it and then edit /etc/mpd.conf).
You can also play your music from a Nas, you should have a samba share called nas and edit /etc/fstab and change the ip with you’r nas ip:
sudo nano /etc/fstab
//192.168.1.YOURIPHERE/nas /mnt/nas cifs username=pi,password= 0 0
reboot and edit /etc/mpd.conf , removing the comment from nas and commenting Music
(Quality-wise, the nas option is strongly suggested)
To enjoy the best quality your RaspyFi powered Pi can give you please use a quality psu, I found out that Xperia phones chargers are pretty well made and stable, if you have an Ipod\Ipad\Iphone charger this could be good as well!
And you’re ready to go! I’m already working on a Real Time version of RaspyFi, stay tuned!
