This project is to install piCorePlayer onto a Raspberry Pi Zero W and connect it to a Panasonic TV via HDMI. Also, we would like to add Jivelite for displaying “Now Playing” information. Warning Since the introduction of the Raspberry Pi 4B, the HDMI configuration has changed and is continually being developed. This has resulted in a simple piCorePlayer configuration becoming a lot more complicated.

This project is to install piCorePlayer onto a Digital Dreamtime Akkordion Music Player which has a DAC based on the OEM IQAudIO DAC+ or DAC Zero module. This Akkordion is a rare example of an early Raspberry Pi based music streamer. It uses a Raspberry Pi 2B and a pre-HAT specification i2s DAC added to the GPIO port. This means the sound card overlay is not automatically loaded and requires a correctly configured config.
