Setting up the RemotePi Board

jeroen2 30 January 2021 pCP 7.0.0 Projects

The RemotePi boards offers a shutdown button and infrared for connecting a remote (when running pCP as an LMS server, doing a proper shutdown is recommended). The shutdown button is also operated by the remote so you can turn the RPi on either with the button or using the remote. To install on pCP requires some custom scripts to be installed. Please note that to install on top of a DAC you might need to change the pin for the remote.

A MSDOS batch file for Windows 10 to create a basic wpa_supplicant.conf configuration file and/or a netusb file on the PCP_BOOT partition of your SD card.   Warning Advanced users only. Use at your own risk! I create a lot of piCorePlayer images on SD cards and needed a method to quickly and consistently add a minimal wpa_supplicant.conf configuration file to a freshly created SD card. After years of thinking about it, I decided it was time to create a batch file to quickly create this configuration file.

Batch file to use robocopy to mirror music library

pCP Team 28 June 2021 pCP 8.0.0-b7 Projects  •

A MSDOS batch file for Windows 10 to mirror copy LMS music library from one USB disk to another.   Warning Advanced users only. Using mirror copy programs in the wrong direction can quickly delete files. Use at your own risk! I use three NTFS formatted USB drives for my LMS music library. I required a method of ensuring each drive was an exact mirror copy. Windows 10 has robocopy which is a great program for creating and maintaining mirror copies.
