Re: Recommendations for use as home automation controller?

At the risk of being accused of heresy, have you looked at a Pipo x8 or Raspberry Pi with a touchscreen?

Re: Android Joggler

@dwl99 Thank you for your help, all installed and working now! That was quick! You might also want to consider installing a fake GPS app as some apps insist on location services before they will work. Also a rotation manager to stop some apps opening in portrait mode. I screwed up a memory stick by...

Flash this image to your USB stick with Win32diskimager to nuke it http://www.mediafire.com/file/umsf2u22x ... r.img/file then reformat it

no video drivers
What does that limit me from doing and can I use an sd card and use an adaptor?
It just means there's no Youtube & iPlayer etc. Yes you can try an SD card & adapter but you might need to try a few devices as the Joggler is quite fussy about what it will boot from.

Re: {SOLD] 2 boxed Jogglers for sale

Thanks for that really fast transaction. I've just flashed mine with the SqueezePlay OS and it's already integrated into our Squeezebox audio network...nice little device. :D You're very welcome. The other one was bought by someone who didn't really understand what it was and is returning it <sigh>...

They are both boxed & have been flashed with the most recent updated OpenPeak software. I have listed them on eBay, item # ************************. EDIT - only 1 now available, ...

Re: Volumio on Joggler

This looks interesting. Would you also be able to look at making a version to run from USB? The Joggler's internal memory is notoriously flaky and there is a high chance of the installation becoming corrupted after a few months and needing reinstalled. USB installations have been much more stable an...

They can show the GUI from the Echo to show what's playing music and the Artwork wise or what your commands are also it shows mistakes etc. You could use as a bedside clock / radio . Set up as a dedicated device say for a weather station . Or none of the above and send them to me ;-) Sent from my M...

Re: Borked Joggler low effort fix please

I’ve defected to Plex as a media server on my RPi. Lots of mp3 files were throwing up bitrate error messages and refusing to play. It seems to be quite a common problem and I gave up trying to fix it.

Re: Android 4.04 build - now fully working!

Looks like your original SD card got corrupted. This occasionally happened with mine and I got into the habit of making backups every couple of months with win32diskimager. If you have such a backup try flashing it over your original SD card, otherwise it's a new build I'm afraid.

Re: Android 4.04 build - now fully working!

I have just had to reinstall this - a power cut of a few seconds obviously happened at the wrong time because it wouldn't boot with the USB stick with this on inserted. Huge thanks to everyone who made it possible. It had been running fine for over four years before this! The main problem was re-fi...

Try a few different usb sticks, Jogglers can be quite fussy about which sticks they will boot from.
