    I just updated mine on a Pi. It had over 100 updates. Just did:

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade

    Still works good.

    I got it fixed. Picked a new Soundcard under Audioplayer and Edit Advanced Options. I picked „dmixerUSB – Equalizer for USB,“ I did have „dmix -USB Audio DAC, USB Audio – Direct sample mixing device, CARD=DAC,DEV=0

    This is good this is the 2nd time this did this. All with a low kbps. Fast ones worked right.

    Seems like you can install Max2play on all most any Ubuntu with the script and some editing.

    So very nice job on this Max2play!

    One thing I found out low like 64kbps sounds like it’s playing in hi pitch or fast. I tested the same on a Max2play on a PI and it don’t do that only on my Tw800.

    Can you think why this would be?

    I don’t know about a power supply that can do it but I do have this:

    ATXRaspi

    It works real good by installing a little script. Can reset or shut down holding the power in log or short.

    Wow got Javalite working on it. I had to turn off the built in LCD display that I removed the ribbon cable from long ago. So wow I guess if I did not use this at time could get a WinBook TW801 and install this and Max2play would be a portable tablet with screen and sound!

    Got this screenshot of it on the HDMI screen because this table has a HDMI out on it.

    Max2play working on Ubuntu desktop 17.04 tw801 tablet.

    It’s working real good. Been playing a big playlist I named My MP3 CD I play in my car driving a long way like 20 years ago now. so copied it to my Logitech Media Server.

    Got it working again. Because I made a Odroid user in Webmin it did not work on the desktop after it crashed. Then when I try to log in on the desktop it was just blank. So I rebooted and log in as me and deleted Odroid user and then added that same user on the desktop. But it still did not work on Max2play. Then I did this to start Squeezelite, and between this I copied the /tmp/squeezlite.txt from another Max2play that works. It was 1 size but the one I copied was 0 size. Then Squeezelite started. Here is the command line doing that.

    root@tw801:~# /opt/max2play/start_audioplayer.sh
    Squeezelite und Shairport starten, falls XBMC nicht läuft entsprechend autostart.conf
    Check auf laufenden XBMC - Pulseaudio VS Alsa bringt Probleme - Alternativ Check auf USB-DAC (Nur Squeezelite)
    cat: /sys/class/net/eth0/operstate: No such file or directory
    Use Interface wlan0 with -m dc:85:de:b9:57:ff
    Starting Squeezelite
    Check auf laufenden XBMC - Pulseaudio VS Alsa bringt Probleme
    chmod: cannot access '/tmp/squeezelite.txt': No such file or directory
    root@tw801:~# /opt/max2play/start_audioplayer.sh
    Squeezelite und Shairport starten, falls XBMC nicht läuft entsprechend autostart.conf
    Check auf laufenden XBMC - Pulseaudio VS Alsa bringt Probleme - Alternativ Check auf USB-DAC (Nur Squeezelite)
    root@tw801:~#

    Playing a playlist now to test if it plays all the way.

    I hope it keeps going. I guess that was it the /tmp/squeezelite.txt.

    Wow I don’t know it was playing then locked up. I rebooted it and now can’t get it running now.

    I guess it has something to a user. How do I add a user with out a password I guess.

    -Raymond Day

    10. September 2017 at 9:34 #31238

    Wow I got it working!

    When I installed the script I made a user „odroid“ because I thought it be closer to this TW801.

    Then I seen the file at /etc/init.d/squeezelite and seen a line that said „USER=odroid“ So then in webmin I said under Password „No password required“ and all so added „In groups“ root and www-data Then started Squeezelite in Max2play and it said Status: Squeezelite is running with processID 9813

    It’s playing music now though the USB speakers!

    Not sure what part got it working but it’s working.

    I guess that was it the user did not have permissions to start Squeezelite.

    Got it working yes!

    Took a long time.

    Here is a link to my Goggle photos.

    Maybe that will help. Can see what I can pick but it never starts Squeezelite.

    If I do this command it shows this:

    I reloaded this fresh and then installed Max2play. I can play on the monitor thought the HDMI or the built in little speakers on this Wintable tw801. Can even play though the headphone all on the desktop of it.

    But can’t get Max2play to play.

    This time I got it to list all the sound devices. by putting a link to /usr/bin/squeezelite at /opt/squeezelite if I don’t the Select Audio output stays blank.

    Even put USB speakers on it. I can play that with the desktop too.

    Here is all it shows for devices.

    root@tw801:~#

    I have picked about every one and it still says „Status: Squeezelite not running“ I can pick pulse and it don’t error then but it don’t play ether.

    I know Max2play is not supported on this but so close.

    I guess it has something to do with copying the squeezelite file to the /opt/squeezelite.

    So my link looks like this that I guess my be the wrong way.

    root@tw801:/opt/squeezelite# ls -l
    total 8
    -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root  462 Sep  9 08:02 btcheck.sh
    drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 4096 Sep  9 06:39 log
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root   20 Sep  9 07:12 squeezelite -> /usr/bin/squeezelite
    root@tw801:/opt/squeezelite#

    But if I don’t have that Max2play for setting Soundcard Select Audio output is blank just like this space in this text. As seen as I put that link it the Soundcard has a list to pick what card but it seems like none don’t work. I get this error.

    T`rying to launch … NOT successful Click here to show detailed information
    [09:12:51.215336] test_open:294 playback open error: No such device
    [09:12:51.215483] output_init_common:381 unable to open output device`

    Must be some easy fix. I can play on every device on the desktop.

    I just did a apt install squeezelite then service squeezelite start and then edit a file at /etc/default/squeezelite with this line:

    SL_SOUNDCARD=“dmix:CARD=bytcrrt5640,DEV=1″

    Then:

    service squeezelite start

    It plays though the built in speakers of this tablet now!

    But it still don’t show any sound device under Mediaplayer Squeezelite & Airplay – Status, Start / Stop Then Soundcard I have no setting there.

    Just made a video of this and uploaded it to YouTube.

    -Raymond Day

    10. April 2017 at 23:01 #28088

    It seems like they changed that install_max2play.sh so it don’t work with other systems. To get it to work have to open it and look at the commands and copy and paste them on the command line. Not all just the ones that look like things it don’t do.

    So I just don’t get why can’t the install_max2play.sh just say other when it don’t find a Odroid or Pi.

    28. Februar 2017 at 13:37 #27321

    Yes wanted to show how good this works. I guess it would go about a full day on the battery I had on it.

    I thought the song quit because in the playlist some times it don’t go to the next song. But it just started the last song were it left off.

    -Raymond Day

    27. Februar 2017 at 16:31 #27283

    Just uploaded a video on YouTube of me using this out side to walk away from WiFi till it quit playing. Then back to the WiFi and it started up.

    So this does work good. Running on a cell phone charger battery.

    Here is the YouTube video link.

    It is working real good now. Took a little wile to set it up.

    But it connects to the WiFi now on power up and down.

    -Raymond Day

    27. Februar 2017 at 3:49 #27250

    I just tested this with a battery! It worked! I had a song repeat playing and I went out side but in the dark and took a video and I went to fair I am sure for my WiFi. But it was still playing. I guess hold the song in it’s buffer. But when the song ended it did not start over. But it did when I got close to the house it started back up.

    I will take another video tomorrow morning when it’s light out. But it is working real good.

    Neat to just hold it and walk around no wires to hold it in one place.

    I order a NanoPi NEO $7.99 not a air one with the NanoHat PCM5102A $9.99 waiting for it. But I guess the set up will be close to the same.

    Posted on the board how to set up the air. I think it will work.

    But have not tested that out yet.

    My NanoPi NEO Air is working good with Max2Play. No display on it but though the WiFi can play music real good. I have had phones on it with the volume all the way up and it’s a good volume on the head phones.

    Will test this out with a battery later walking around with no wires to see how it works.

    Posted it some place else but all I had to do to fix this was a command to install the player. apt install squeezelite and it fixed it.

    But hard to know this I would have to test more but on a reboot it would lose it’s WiFi. I had to edit the /etc/network/interfaces thought the RS-232 to get it back.

    But I plug in a USB to Ethernet on it and got on it like that and unchecked the Load WiFi Interface and rebooted and that worked. Even though the it’s still checked on the Load WiFi Interface.

    So seems like working good now.

    24. Februar 2017 at 5:13 #27186

    I solder up some wires to a USB and plug in a USB to Ethernet. Got it connected to that and unchecked the Load WiFi Interface rebooted and it stayed unchecked. Then switch it back to WiFi just copied my backup with cp /etc/network/interfaces~~ /etc/network/interfaces but after that reboot on WiFi again the Load WiFi Interface is checked again.

    But looks like it’s working any way from this reboot it did get a WiFi IP.

    I think it’s fixed now.

    It’s neat to have this small NanoPi NEO Air with NanoHat PCM5102A working good with Max2play. No display on this so just a music server.

    24. Februar 2017 at 2:54 #27183

    I know it’s only support for the Raspberry Pi. I did now know for the ODROID because a wile ago I posted about it locking up after some time. But then you said the same thing only support the Raspberry Pi. So I have not been using my Odroid as a Max2Play for a wile.

    But any way I am sure the same command would work on the Raspberry Pi. So say you could not hook it up to Ethernet and it do that same thing disconnects the Wifi before can set it. How could you do the same on the command line to like Uncheck the Load WiFi Interface but with the command line on a Raspberry Pi. I am sure it be the same on this unit.

    I fixed it by clicking on the „Get precompiled binary from Max2Play (~1 Minute)“ clicked the „Jivelite start installation“ restarted Jivelite then and now the display shows right!

    -Raymond Day

    23. Februar 2017 at 2:17 #27155

    It don’t have a LAN or Ethernet port on it. It’s name Nano Pi Neo Air because only WiFi.

    Maybe if I hook a USB to Ethernet on it. I have to wire up a USB to it’s pins to do that.

    But there is no command line way to do the same?

    -Raymond Day

    22. Februar 2017 at 12:42 #27113

    Thanks. I guess the only way to remove them is reinstall fresh will out installing them.

    -Raymond Day

    22. Februar 2017 at 1:16 #27104

    How can I do the same thing on the command line because when I unclick this on the web page it just does dims it with a circle and never comes back! I think because it don’t have the IP address any more. I have to edit the nano /etc/network/interfaces it looks like it puts # at the start of some lines and I remove them and then /etc/init.d/networking restart then it goes it’s IP back. Here is the check I am talking about in this photo.

    I want to uncheck the Load WiFi Interface but it never comes back after that.

    This only has WiFi and RS-232 and it seems Max2play will mass it up on a reboot so I have to fix the WiFi all the time. I think if I can uncheck the Load WiFi Interface: It will keep it’s WiFi on a reboot then.

    So how can I do the same on the command line like uncheck that?

    So I guess all I had to do once installing the OS, Setup WiFi, and updating it just had to do this:

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/max2play/webinterface/master/install_max2play.sh
    chmod 777 install_max2play.sh
    ./install_max2play.sh
    apt install squeezelite 

    Been working on this for 3 days. Happy got it working.

    Did order just today a NanoPi with Ethernet and the hat board for it. So I will do this again on this one should be the same and then I can show a step-by-step way to do it.

    -Raymond Day

    20. Februar 2017 at 19:29 #27055

    I got it working! Took so long. All I did what this command:

    apt install squeezelite

    Then could list the sound card it sees with this:

    root@air:~# /usr/bin/squeezelite -l
    Output devices:
      null                           - Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)
      sysdefault:CARD=Pcm5102a       - Pcm5102a,  - Default Audio Device
      dmix:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0       - Pcm5102a,  - Direct sample mixing device
      dsnoop:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0     - Pcm5102a,  - Direct sample snooping device
      hw:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0         - Pcm5102a,  - Direct hardware device without any conversions
      plughw:CARD=Pcm5102a,DEV=0     - Pcm5102a,  - Hardware device with all software conversions
      sysdefault:CARD=sndhdmi        - sndhdmi,  - Default Audio Device
      dmix:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0        - sndhdmi,  - Direct sample mixing device
      dsnoop:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0      - sndhdmi,  - Direct sample snooping device
      hw:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0          - sndhdmi,  - Direct hardware device without any conversions
      plughw:CARD=sndhdmi,DEV=0      - sndhdmi,  - Hardware device with all software conversions
    
    root@air:~#
    
    

    Then did:

    chmod +X /etc/init.d/squeezelite

    Then started it with:

    /etc/init.d/squeezelite start

    Not sure if I need to do all that. But went to it’s IP and it shows this:

    Status: Squeezelite is running with processID 10006

    Playing some songs on it now it works good. Playing though that small sound card too.

    I thought Max2play all ready installed the Squeezelite but I guess me installing it with the apt install squeezelite config it for the hat card.

    Can even do the Volume up and down but I could do that on the command line with a + or – on the keyboard too.

    Seems like it’s working real good. No one could help so I guess if any one else wants to do this can now.

    How about a buy this for you so you can look at getting it working. I can send it to you. It’s a neat little WiFi server. That don’t cost a lot.
