    Here is what it says there:

    -a <params>
    Specify parameters used when opening an audio output device. For ALSA, the format
    <b>:<p>:<f>:<m> is used where <b> is the buffer time in milliseconds (values less
    than 500) or size in bytes (default 40ms); <p> is the period count (values less
    than 50) or size in bytes (default 4 periods); <f> is the sample format (possible
    values: 16, 24, 24_3 or 32); <m> is whether to use mmap (possible values: 0 or 1).
    For PortAudio, the value is simply the target latency in milliseconds. When the
    output is sent to standard output, the value can be 16, 24 or 32, which denotes the
    sample size in bits.

    So how would I put that in the „ALSA Parameter“ part under „Audioplayer“ I did a „a b32“ to say buffer time 32 in size. But I don’t think that is the right way to do it. They should show some examples on that man page.

    I think I have to increase the buffer size. Read „if hearing any clicks, pops. or other flitches. If the buffer size is too small“ is there a way to type in to ALSA Parameter something to do this. Right now just have „80:4::“ in there now. At the man page for squeezelite is shows command but is there one to increase the buffer size?

    So you can’t even get to the command line?

    If you can just install Max2Play like I show here.

    Or you can just see if installing the PI OS and then do them commands.

    I want to record a remote to use it. How would I do that with Max2play? I have it on a Pi zero with a ANAVI Infrared pHAT how can I record the remote keys with this?

    Thank you.

    Just to to the „Password Protection“ tab on the web interface. Can type in your root password there and then just do a su root and type that password.

    I wanted to test this out on my Pi 4 with 4GB RAM.

    It works and I hooked it up to a blue tooth speaker and worked real good.

    Went to bed and got up the next morning and went to play some music with it but it did not.

    Said to connect to the blue tooth and it say’s connected and in about 3 sec. Say’s disconnected.

    I did this like 10 times. Turn off and on the blue tooth and right away says connected then disconnected right after that.

    Did all I could think of removed it and connected it again. Just did not reboot the Pi 4 I guess should do that.

    Here is some info copy and past from it.

    You can open this and unsolder the 3 wires to the battery. Then just solder the + and – on it can use a 5 volt USB cable with the ends cut off.

    I used a flat tool from this set:

    Tech Rescue Kit (46-Piece). You can see it at https://www.tekton.com/everybit-tech-rescue-kit-28301.

    In the photo of it the top tool under the red pointer I used. On the sides between it and the back and put that took in and push down the back just snaps in.

    I had this up for over 10 days all ready. Just power with a power 5 volt power supply.

    Junk they don’t make it have OTG On The Go power. I can plug that cable in and use a none power USB hub and it powers a USB to Ethernet and keyboard and mouse. The keyboard is a lighted keyboard have on it too. Just need a good amp 5 volt power supply.

    The back has a sticker over the hold at the bottom a black one with words on it. When got the back off and just push it off and I stuck it on another part of the back and ran the wires out that hole the black sticker was covering up.

    Here is a good photo on there webpage of that tool

    In Linux or Ubuntu it shows the battery going down over time but it don’t turn off when it goes to 0 like some cell phones do if you power them like this.

    It will say up as long as you got power to it but it will think the battery goes down to 10% and looks like will not go lower then that. If with time it thinks it goes down you can not do a reboot. Have to turn off and on the power and it starts thinking the battery is 100% then. But slowly goes down but like I said it don’t turn off.

    Wow I just thought of this all ready long ago put this on a Raspberry Pi Zero but not wireless. Max2play been working on my Pi Zero for as long as I posted it here. It still works just played a song on it yesterday.

    So why can you have this supported? I got the Speaker Bonnet on it for the sound. A image for it?

    I guess I installed the OS and then used the max2play script. Don’t remember good.

    The little sound bonnet board can do big sound out of the sort of big speakers I have on it. It’s something with just the one small power supply it can do good bass out them.

    I just got this working on another NanoPi-NEO-Air but this one has 32GB of eMMC. With the same NanoHat PCM5102A sound hat. One is not a Air but has Ethernet built in. The post I did on this 1st Air one has been up time real good and the server all ways sees it and the other one. So working real good.

    I got this other air because I want to install it in a sound bar that has a rechargeable battery. Just got it working so next I will do that.

    But right now the server is not showing there names I give them. It says „SqueezeLite“ „SqueezeLite 1“ and „SqueezeLite 2“

    My main server is down now so I just installed a server with some songs on this new NanoPi-NEO-Air and that is how it shows the names of the players.

    Does it take some time to get there right Playername?

    -Raymond Day

    28. Januar 2019 at 11:58 #44193

    I got Max2play working on 2 NanoPi-NEO-Air’s now with the NanoHat PCM5102A and that hat has a infrared receiver on it. Maybe this will work with it.

    This is neat so then what can you say like for amazon Alexa to play a song and it will do it?

    I put a power switch on my Max2play to just reset it easy when it don’t work. I named it max2play but Alexa don’t under stand that good you have to pick some other name besides max2play.

    This would be neat if you could just say Alexa playmax song. So the key would be something like playmax to play a song from your songs on max2play.

    They don’t run on the same power supply but both on the same battery back up.

    How to I get the log from them?

    About the LCD screen brightness. At lest the 7 inch touch one I have.

    Went to try and test dimming it but so I went to this web site. Went to the folder /sys/class/backlight and did a git clone https://github.com/linusg/rpi-backlight.git because that folder is not there. But it says Permission denied and I log in as root. I guess it’s not a real root or I just don’t know why.

    I was going to take the SD card out and mount it in another Ubuntu. But it’s to hard I would have to open up this hole case to get the SD card out.

    If could do the dimming on the command line there are other web sites that say how to install a light sensor.

    Tested tying it another way but it don’t work ether.

    root@bed-max2play:~# pip install rpi_backlight

    O so your talking about VPN out of Max2play no into it?

    29. September 2018 at 2:03 #38234

    I think this would not be to hard. I guess would have to put a light sensor on the GPIO pins so could dim the display when it get dark in the room. The Squeezebox radio all ready does this.

    Don’t get why need VPN. What you want to log in to it from out side your LAN? But it just play at your home. Or just want to get on it only get on Max2play with a password?

    They have a Intel Computer stick out too that you can buy for about $100 or less just look for it. STK1AW32SC I even have Plex server working on it good. Install Max2play on it too.

    Have to make sure you have php installed for Max2play to work.

    A command like this:

    apt install php-pear php-fpm php-dev php-zip php-curl php-xmlrpc php-gd php-mysql php-mbstring php-xml libapache2-mod-php
    update-alternatives --set php /usr/bin/php7.2
    a2enmod php7.2
    systemctl restart apache2

    Then can do what I said the post before this.

    I plugged in a USB to audio and can get it to play out that.

    It is something that only have this on little arm computers. The Raspberry Pi and Odroid both are ARM CPU’s. But this Intel stick has a 4 core 386 Atom type CPU in it.

    Installed Ubuntu desktop on it.

    Did not know that plex could run on this Atom CPU. Can turn on hardware decoding so it uses it’s GPU. Tested it with a 1080 video playing on things over my LAN and it works. The video’s are on a USB 3.0 320GB WD drive. Them drives now can find for just $20! It can hold a lot of MP4 movies.

    I know that. Like I said „I know you don’t support this Intel stick but seems like it all most works with the Blue tooth built in this stick.“ It be nice if it could. I will look into it more see if I can fix it.

    17. September 2018 at 18:38 #37880

    Installed mine on a Intel Corporation STK1AW32SC/Cherry Trail stick. It works good. But I did have to do a apt install squeezelite and make a link to it.

    Have Beta-180917 and with the plug-in http://shop.max2play.com/media/downloadable/beta/bluetooth.tar

    It does see my Blue tooth speaker but I can’t get it to connect.

    It will say this:

    I rebooted and still same.

    It my be that Max2play don’t know how to restart my Squeezelite. It I click Stop or Kill it can’t do it. May need to link it some other way.

    I know you don’t support this Intel stick but seems like it all most works with the Blue tooth built in this stick.

    22. Mai 2018 at 12:13 #35799

    This one works good ATXRaspi You should get it with the button too. It lights up to show you what it’s doing. You can hold it down to reboot of just press it to turn off. Have to install a little script to do it.

    I even edit the code some to change what GPIO pin it uses and it works.

    15. April 2018 at 8:01 #35186

    O so if you have it on „Auto“ then it’s just like normal then right? So it turns off the the shutdown button right?

    But were does the „auto“ wire goes. Were do you put that wire. It just ends nothing is there on the schematic.

    All so is the On/Off button stays on just a little time or does it stay on or off. So if you press the button does it keep the a continuation or not? So what type button is it. So is if a Momentary or toggle switch? The schematic just says On/Off so hard to know. I guess that means it is a toggle switch.

    Looking at the schematic it has a switch that is „Always on“ and the other side „Auto“ What is this for? Were the the „Auto side connect to?

    12. Dezember 2017 at 17:10 #32905

    How did I install Max2play on it. I said it before this post. Mostly this line:

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/max2play/webinterface/master/install_max2play.sh

    Then chmod that install_max2play.sh and run it with:

    ./install_max2play.sh

    Chmod it like this „chmod 766 install_max2play.sh“. That makes it so you have permissions to run it.

    -Raymond Day

    12. Dezember 2017 at 17:04 #32901

    I got it to auto start Squeezelite and work on boot by putting this in /opt/max2play/custom_autostart.sh The hole file looks like this now.

    #!/bin/bash
    #Custom Autostart File
    
    #Start squeezelite so Max2Play works on NanoPi NEO Air with NanoHat PCM5102A
    sudo -u root -H -s squeezelite -o hw:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0 > /dev/null 2>&1 &

    Rebooted it and went to it’s web page and says Status: Squeezelite is running with processID 1175 Your processID will be some other number.

    All problems that I know of fix on this now!

    From what I remember just downloaded a image for it 1st and put that on a SD card and set it up so I could log in to it and updated it.

    Then did the commands to install Max2Play.

    Can find images for the NanoPi Neo Air here.

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/m7ag71w1ntj17gq/nanopi-neo-air_debian-nas-jessie_4.11.2_20171102.img.zip

    I still have to run a „squeezelite -o hw:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0“ on the command line to get it to play music with Logitech Media Server. It will say then that Status: Squeezelite is running with processID XXXX

    I can try all the soundcard Select Audio output it list and start but it still don’t run! Just have to do that command on the command line and then in Max2play web page it says its running.

    One more command have to do so it sees the Soundcard:

    ln -s /usr/bin/squeezelite /opt/squeezelite

    Then can pick „Select Audio output“

    -Raymond Day

    14. September 2017 at 5:35 #31315

    To install Max2play I did this:

    apt install apache2 php libapache2-mod-php php7.0-xml -y
    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/max2play/webinterface/master/install_max2play.sh
    ls
    chmod 777 install_max2play.sh
    ls
    ./install_max2play.sh
    apt install squeezelite`

    That’s from the /root/.bash_history file.

    So I guess any one can do it if you have Ubuntu installed on any system maybe.

    -Raymond Day

    12. September 2017 at 0:49 #31281

    Wow neat. I just started Kodi / XBMC and can play videos on the HDMI screen as Max2Play is playing on the USB speakers Kodi plays a video and sound thought the LCD monitor the HDMI.

    They both play very good at the same time!

    It’s hard to get this TW801. The TW801 has 2 times the ram 2MB not 1MB like the tw800. I seen they are out of them they were selling for just like $25 or so real cheep. I guess that’s why don’t have them any more.

    Has one full size USB 3.0 port on it.
