Re: Broadcom BCM70015 mini pcie card

Here tested way back on the KODI 14.X build and only tested 1080 video to work fine. No stuttering. I did modify the Openframe 2 motherboard adding another USB port to the top (camera port), removed the combo WLAN/Bluetooth card and installed the Crystall 1/2 sized video card. I don't even remember ...

Re: Coughs and sneezes spread diseases.

My sister and brother in law have been stuck in FL now since after Christmas. They finally drove back here for an elective surgery which is difficult these days. Both of my children were fired on a Friday from their company then rehired the next Monday due to willy nilly management (well family run ...

Purchased EMC drives for a new NAS box and couldn't get them to work and found out that you have to change the bios on the EMC drives in ...

Re: Debian Buster for OpenFrame

Will try making a tool here using a coat hanger as pushing on the two tabs to remove the LCD screen will be easier than pushing on one tab with a screwdriver.

Re: Debian Buster for OpenFrame

That said opening the case is easy peasey if you go baby steps. (the following is from memory as I have...

Re: Debian Buster for OpenFrame

I tested the Openframe 2 KODI with a Crystal HD miniPCIE card and it worked fine years ago.

BUT that was Ubuntu 14.X and I am not sure whether drivers are around today for the Crystal HD cards. That said you can probably purchase one for $10.

Re: Basic music only player needed.

Installed Clementine on a basic Openframe 2 that is running Squeezeplayer.

Interface is kind of small and it would be difficult to navigate with the touch screen.

You could just remove the autolaunch of Squeezeplayer and launch Clementine on boot.

Re: Loud digital noise suddenly started (internal speakers and external)

You can also utilize a USB to Sound device to bypass the audio portion of the Joggler. I have had similar issues here over the years.

Re: Building for Joggler on a PC .

Way back I did get the XP / Seabios image running in Oracle Virtual box. Not sure if this would work with an EFI boot bios Ubuntu image. Way to do this is basically install Oracle Virtual box on your computer and copy over a running image to file. You can resize it and do all sorts of stuff to it. L...

Re: Easiest way to make this only a bedside radio alarm clock

Easiest way first is if you have an Openframe1 which looks like an O2 Joggler but is way different. With an O2 Joggler you would need to solder on a ZIF clip and make sure it works. It is documented right here to work fine. An Openpeak 2 also has traces for a ZIF clip but it also has a mini PCIE bus...

Re: Easiest way to make this only a bedside radio alarm clock

I am using older O2 Jogglers with old build / Squeezeplayers using internal memory just fine these days. Openframe 1's / Openpeak devices are using Seabios/EFI bios run Ubuntu or Windows Embedded and work fine there too.
