Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

Somewhere here have a bunch of these zif sockets. That said will take a close up picture of the socket installed in the Openframe2. With these sockets I used a flipped ZIF cable. It was long and I folded it inside of the OpenFrame. Will look for my box o zif sockets....thinking they are lost on my w...

Re: Fixing Jogglers

For Joggler #1: I have never changed the power board on one. For Joggler #2: I had one Joggler with the shifted screen up a bit a while ago. For me it appeared that the long multiwire LCD connector was loosey goosey a bit at the LCD end. I pushed it in to place (thinking it was on a a little bit of ...

Re: Logitech & Joggler stuff for free

@Paul,

I would like to try your Radio France plugin some time or another. Put a couple of Jogglers in mom's house to use as a squeezeplayer and screen saver.

Currently doing a custom Kodi box (TV Box with CoreElec) for streaming french TV for mom (using favorites).

Re: Coreboot and SeaBIOS

You can make up any MAC address you want or look up what OpenPeak was allocated for MAC addresses. Seabios ROM installation: 1 - boot up with last posted O2 OS. 2 - write the MAC changer dos image to a USB stick 3 - ssh to the O2 Joggler 4 - find the coreboot.rom on the USB stick (typically it is un...

Re: Coreboot and SeaBIOS

The O2 Joggler came with no Realtek NIC Chip rom - I do not know why it was never populated. The boot dos stick has an old Realtek NIC chip programmer software on it. Basically you just type the name of the program and the mac address you want to utilize. That is all there is to it. The reason for u...

Re: Coreboot and SeaBIOS

so is XPe that you use not Joggler specific ? Not really except for the audio / video drivers. It boots right from the internal SSD which is connected to the internal ZIF clip. This is a picture of an Ubuntu running modded Openpeak with an RTC clock, SSD USB stick and ZIF connected SSD drive. This ...

Re: Coreboot and SeaBIOS

Primarily using Windows XPe on my Seabios'd Openpeak tabletops (which are totally different than the Joggler). Once you have Seabios'd your Joggler then you can utilize a USB stick to install any image you want. BUT really without an SSD drive (ZIF Preferred) then it is really not worth the effort. ...

Re: 4x OpenPeak 7E on E Bay Sold out

These are the one's that I run embedded Windows on with Seabios / 16Gb SSD card. Also Squeezeplayer is running on a few of them. Labels on these were OpenPeak test versions....well mine were. You can only tell them apart from an O2 by the OpenPeak logo embedded on the plastic in the back. They also ...

Re: Trying to bring a car boot Joggler back to life - short somewhere?

Yes here switched mostly to using 5VDC POE Power splitters (TP-Link) for power to the Jogglers.

The one I fixed was a purchase here for $5 USD. Still using it today.

Re: Trying to bring a car boot Joggler back to life - short somewhere?

Great news jkm.

Yes what I replaced was a zener diode and I called it a fuse. Apologies. It was burnt to a crisp. I do not recall now what it was I replaced it with.

That said just install a similarily sized zener diode rated at ~ 5VDC and low watts (well like 1 watt).

Re: Trying to bring a car boot Joggler back to life - short somewhere?

There is a fuse near by the 5VDC input on the motherboard. Typically if the fuse is burnt up then you see it and there will be no power to the main board. Maybe the fuse shorted to ground. Take pictures of the board near the 5VDC input (both sides) just for some extra eyes. I have replaced one fuse ...

Re: Annual ALSA Appeal

I've not figured out if the options where the internal speaker is 'killed' in the earlier example is because of a misconfiguration or something we can actually use. In the early days speaker crackling was also attributed to CPU c-states, so I'll have a very brief mess around with those as well, tho...
