Re: Updated OpenPeak Firmware (Version 30301)

Yeah the stick has a fat partition and that is the only one you can see with a windows PC. There in the fat partion is the reflash directory where you copy the base build two files. What OS are you using to do this? Windows xp, 7 or 10? You should see it find with all three OS's. The USB boot stick ...

Re: Updated OpenPeak Firmware (Version 30301)

Yeah the reflash image puts in a regular dos seen directory on the USB stick. Then you copy over the img and md5 files over to it. If you do not see a directory using your computer file manager then rewrite the stick. Try: 1 - first format the stick with told HP USB stick formatting program: 2 - the...

Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

I am low on spares these days having given away a few hardware modded Openpeak devices. I did sell one as one Joggler user sent me $200 USD for one modded device (I did not ask for any monies for said device) and another sent me a mini Samsung computer in trade for an unmodified Openpeak 2 computer....

Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

Yeah here started to tinker with little WiFi devices updating them with Tasmota / Espurna firmware. Tiny things and soldering tiny wires to them for JTAG. Take your time with the Joggler PATA port stuff. Only use an illuminated magnifying glass and a small soldering tip and lots of flux. Kind of con...

Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

Not easy. Tried once and messed up the pads. Second time it looked good but didn't really work well. Purchased OpenPeak Verizon test devices (bunch) which already had the Zif clip and that is what I am using today for my touchscreens here running. These look like O2 Jogglers except they are labeled ...

Help SqueezePlayers on Jogglers and Server on Ubuntu

Here have squeezeplayers on O2 Jogglers and OpenPeak (with speakers in front). Works well but cannot get Pandora to work. I am a registered user of Pandora.

Re: Recommendations for use as home automation controller?

Lately here have been tinkering with Magic Home RGB controllers and use of Espurna firmware. It is a bit difficult to solder wires to the little pads on the Magic Home controller. Wanted local on and off and dimming here due to WAF and (wife acceptance factor) I wanted to also add a DHT22 combo temp...

Re: Recommendations for use as home automation controller?

Did you actually install Home-Assistant on the Joggler itself? I'm running it on a Intel NUC running under Docker, so really I'm just looking to render the web interface remotely on the Joggler. Yes just to test it and using Chrome / Firefox. It was slow. I am currently running HA on an old Nettop ...

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

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...

Yes Andy has made the write the new OS to the Joggler very much plugnplay.

Over time though the internal eMMC on the Jogglers get a bit worn down.
