Re: 2 boxed Jogglers for sale

The Joggler O2 was made before it's time using an Intel Atom CPU and built in wireless and a Gb network interface and a gorilla type capacitance touch screen. Given the CPU it will run Linux just fine with little bit of 500Mb of memory. A little tweaking of the 1Mb EFI bios chip lets you run Windows...

Re: Updated OpenPeak Firmware (Version 30301)

CCTV works well using SD but is a bit slow using HD. Ultimate with least amount of changes is to convert your Joggler to a Squeezebox player running off of the 1Gb internal eMMC.

Never tried a NAS on the Joggler. I have modded them here with small ZIF SSD drives for use with Windows (and new BIOS).

Re: Mosquitto - MQTT

Thank you Paul. Yeah just starting to play with HA here. Mostly utilize Homeseer for Automation (well now some 20 years). Installed a Mosquitto plugin to Homeseer. Homeseer currently speaks X10, Insteon, UPB, Zigbee, Wifi, Mosquitto and ZWave. That said now tinkering with WiFi devices upgrading them...

Re: Mosquitto - MQTT

Here slowly (baby steps) utilizing MQTT for automation. It is a bit similiar to using xAP or xPL from years ago. Historically not one to automate using WiFi. With Mosquitto and WiFi and updatable ESPXXX devices you can do all sorts of stuff. Here is an example. My current garage door automation is h...

Mosquitto - MQTT

Just curious if anyone is playing with Mosquitto (MQTT)? An MQTT system consists of clients communicating with a server, often called a "broker". A client may be either a publisher of information or a subscriber. Each client can connect to the broker. Information is organized in a hierarchy of topic...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

Actually here my SP'er OP2 got scrambled and I just used the current image on a stick and reinstalled it. The time consuming piece was connecting it to my WAP which took some 2 minutes. The Squeezeplayer server is running on my MythTV box and the music is located on a mapped NAS. It connected right ...

Re: Unable to connect to WiFi: CRDA error

Here left the internal WiFi connected and SSH'd to SP, plugged in a generic TP-Link micro USB WiFi Stick and manually installed the drivers for Linux posted on the TP-Link web site.

Re: How to build a Linux image for the Joggler

A while back using Seabios I was able build some version of Linux. Thinking Mickchip tried this first.

Last year one forum user built an O2 Joggler KODI build from scratch (?) that fit fine on 1Gb of eMMC.

Only concern then was the video drivers.

Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

Relating to pata SSD booting from the EFI boot a while back thinking a forum user mentioned that the Avaya boot rom had the SSD boot stuff built in. That is why I am using it today with any model of the Jogglers or Openpeak devices. It is sugggested to also write a new ROM to the Realtek built in NI...

Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

Before I started to change stuff here I was able to boot from only the ZIF SSD drive. I did redo the USB stick and the SSD drive was booting form the USB stick. What I did though is change the name of the boot partition to all capital letters and the grub.cfg and fstab were showing the partitions in...

Fixed the eMMC partition such that it doesn't stall when booting. Not sure how long that will last though. A while back did get the SSD drive to work booting and running the OS. Not there yet. Installed a new micro 16Gb USB stick and using the boot partition there to boot to the SSD partition just p...

This morning ran Andy's SP write to the eMMC. First and second time saw many fsck errors. 3rd and 4th time I saw no errors. Going to maybe try swapping out the EFI rom boot chip to the Seabios rom boot chip and use currently configured 16GB ZIF SSD with embedded XP. There will run the HDD guru low l...

Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

The old O2 is somewhere here in pieces in a plastic bag. That said took apart last modified Openpeak which shows the ZIF clip and ZIF cable. Note here the flipped ZIF I used was too thin on one side so I put some scotch tape on side and carefuly trimmed it with a razor blade for a tight fit. I have ...
