Hi all piCorePlayer users. Note: In this version of piCorePlayer a new password is used. User: tc Password: piCore We have a new version ready piCorePlayer 1.19k. It is mostly a bug fix version but Greg have developed a new option that allow you to set a static IP address for your piCorePlayer. This has been requested frequently, so now the first part is ready. For now it is only for wired networks, so if you use Wifi you can’t set a static IP-address.
New versions piCorePlayer 1.19i and piCorePlayer 1.19i_RPi2 are available from the download page. Changes # Fixed the problem with Wifi and RPiA+ cards (did not load firmware). To set up an only Wifi based system download the newconfig.cfg file from here: Downloads. Then change the Wifi section so it fits your setup and save it to your SD card boot partition (in a windows computer just save it to the SD card as it is the only partition visible in windows).
Finally, piCorePlayer 1.19 is released. Actually there are two separate releases as we need a version for the older Raspberry Pi boards and a version for the new armv7 version of the Raspberry Pi board (RPi2). Greg and I have been working hard on improving the experience when using piCorePlayer. In addition, improvements in the Wifi and autostart of Logitech Media Server (LMS) have been included. The autostart feature of LMS means that piCorePlayer is able to start playing one of your favourite radio stations after you boot is.
If you were using a HiFiBerryAMP (the amplifier card from HiFiBerry) please update to piCorePlayer 1.18b, otherwise your card was not recognised after a reboot. It has been fixed now. The pCP Team Paul, Greg, Ralphy and Steen
Small update to piCorePlayer 1.18a. Changes # Added support for the HiFiBerryAMP 2x25W amplifier card. The pCP Team Paul, Greg, Ralphy and Steen
These two new I2S audio DACs are also working fine with piCorePlayer 1.18 on the original Raspberry Pi B. (but you will need to solder the P5 connector to your Raspberry Pi B). Audiophonics - DAC PCM5102 I2S DAC 32bit/384Khz Raspberry Pi Audiophonics I-Sabre DAC ES9023 Raspberry Pi/I2S In order to use these cards in piCorePlayer 1.18 you will have to use the HiFiBerryor Sabre ES9023 setting on the [Squeezelite Settings] page:
piCorePlayer 1.18 supports the new Raspberry Pi B+ with the new audio DAC+ cards from HiFiBerryand IQaudIO. These cards have the advantage that you simply connect the audio cards to the new connector present on the Raspberry Pi B+ cards. So soldering is not needed any more. IQaudIO PI-DAC+ HiFiBerryDAC+ HiFiBerryDigi+ In order to use any of these cards you simply choose the correct I2S card+ from the drop-down list on the “Squeezelite settings” page in the piCorePlayer web-browser:
Hi all. Greg and I have been working hard on this version, so I hope you like it. Changes # Build on kernel 3.16.3 at the time when 24 bit support still was present. Support the same I2S-DACs as previous versions on the original Raspberry Pi B (thanks to JackofAll for his advice). Supports the new Raspberry Pi B+ with HiFiBerryDAC+ and Digi+ cards. Supports the new IQaudIO+ card as well.
A new bug fixed version is ready: piCorePlayer 1.17a Changes # The physical MAC address was not shown in [Squeezelite settings] web page. The timezone changes was not saved. Update to latest Triode’s Squeezelite player resulted in a wrong version. The pCP Team Paul, Greg, Ralphy and Steen
New version piCorePlayer 1.17 Development of piCorePlayer is now strengthened as Greg Erskine is part of piCorePlayer. He has rewritten all the web pages and cgi scripts. Changes # Kernel is the same as piCorePlayer 1.16a, but firmware files are updated so you can use it on your Raspberry Pi B+. New tweaks # Change password for piCorePlayer. Select time zone. If you have used ALSA mixer via ssh, then you can “use custom ALSA settings” on the [Tweaks] page, and your custom ALSA settings will remembered and used after each reboot.
