    Pirate Audio: Line-out for Raspberry Pi

    Hi purist,

    According to Pimoroni’s documentation, they also use the default hifiberry driver. So the card should work by selecting „HiFiBerry DAC“ in the Raspberry Settings and rebooting, automatically.

    Please add Jivelite support for 240×20 screen of the Piromoni.

    Hi psleertouwer,

    Which display do you mean exactly? I can only find the 240×240 display from Pimoroni. Unfortunately we are not responsible for the development of Jivelite. The best thing to do is to ask in the Slimdevices forum whether someone can add support for this resolution.

    The Skin for a 240×240 screen is now included in Jivelite. But when I use Max2play the screen stays black. Is there a way to force the use of this skin?

    Hi psleertouwer,

    After updating Jivelite, I was actually able to select the skin. Changing the skin went without any problems and I was able to use Jivelite normally. Is your display a touch display? It may be that the screen automatically turns black if no input is made after a while. Check in the screen saver settings whether the Blank Screen option is selected and switch off the screen saver there if necessary. If you don’t have any other way to use Jivelite, use our VNC plugin. This allows you to view and control the desktop of your Pi on a PC.

    I did the same, installed VNC and I could select the skin. But still no axtive display. For this player I’ve switched to PiCorePlayer now. Following their manual it now works.

    Any News on the Pirate Audio: 3W Stereo Speaker Amp for Raspberry Pi?

    Hi Daniel,

    We currently do not plan to actively support Pirate Audio products. But as Heiner already said, they use the normal HiFiBerry driver. Here you can find information about the configuration: https://github.com/pimoroni/pirate-audio

    And here is explained how to install the display: https://github.com/pimoroni/st7789-python

    However, we can’t guarantee that this will work with Max2Play, as we can’t test it ourselves.
