Re: Joggler keeps crashing

I'd give a different USB stick a whirl. They can be a bit twitchy in that regard. You can thermal-throttle the device using "thermal.psv=75" in the boot config, but I doubt that's where your issue lies.Other than that it should just keep on cruising. I have one here that's not been turned ...

Easiest way would just be to install the basic Ubuntu image and install Chrome or another browser, then just have it call a web page.

Re: What can i still do with a joggler?

Without any Spotify premium subscription: is there anyway I can use spotify to just listen to radio or discover music? Maybe my english is not good enough, but what did you mean with music discovery is free? No, sadly the premium subscription is required to work with SqueezePlay / LMS. With music d...

Re: Hamclock RPi project on Joggler? - FIXED

Liking this, yes, more detail please! On my list of things to do with a Joggler is to take the data from the FlightAware setup in the loft and display it. In all honesty it should be trivial to achieve given there's a map interface in SkyAware. I recently discovered that Apple's HomeKit supports iss...

Re: SqueezePlay OS (Version 3) for OpenFrame

This is great; I've not used LMS for quite some time now, but I'm really pleased it can be brought up to the newest version. Kudos to the LMS team for keeping the 32-bit versions ticking and to @Man in a van for keeping everyone informed! Given the extended support for Ubuntu 18.04 through to 2028 i...

Re: Linux program on Joggler

Don't rely on the original OS, it's so old and tailored (restricted) you'll not be able to run much without a lot of hard work.

Use this instead. You'll be able to build anything you want on the back of this "blank" Ubuntu OS.

Re: Updating SqueezePlay ... I don't get it

There is new firmware for Squeezebox Touch and Controller that resolves a few things and now support in LMS for installing that firmware. Oh, that's cool. I wonder if this old Squeezebox behind me has any community firmware. The 23 day issue, although in a different guise, is one issue that has bee...

Re: Updating SqueezePlay ... I don't get it

The only reasons to worry about updating really are security and compatibility. So long as you're not exposing that Joggler directly to the internet you're probably fine on the first one. I've not kept my eye on the ball with regards to SqueezePlay or LMS recently, but others seem to be having succe...

I've only ever used a BBC at school and a couple of times on the Doomsday Laser disc set up that they had , it was sort of the internet before it existed .

What is now my Model B was bought new back in 1982(ish) by my Dad. While searching for bits and pieces for it, I developed a habit of ta...

Re: SqueezePlay for OpenFrame

Is there any way to use the joggler with the spotty plugging literally just to control playback on a pc? (instead of playing on the joggler itself?) Yes, I think I've done this in the past... IIRC it works in the same way as remote controlling any Spotify client from another... I remember clicking ...
