piCorePlayer 1.15b

pCP Team 28 April 2014 pCP 1.15b

Please try the new version: piCorePlayer 1.15b. I really hope those of you having trouble with your USB cards will find this version better.


  • Updated the Raspberry Pi firmware to the so-called “Next” branch which should help fixing USB audio problems.
  • Added these start-up command to the cmdline.txt file which enable the new USB driver:
    • dwc_otg.fiq_enable=1
    • dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=1
    • dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_mask=0x1
  • Unfortunately I was unable to use dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_mask=0x7, which should help High-speed isochronous acceleration - it produced constant crackling noise using USB audio.
  • Fixed the script that did different stuff after reboot - now the errors of not finding specific files are not displayed anymore.
