At the moment I connected PIN 15 and 16 to 5V/GND, but acc...

Re: Very simple Raspberry Pi Radio

Here comes the box http://www.flickr.com/photos/rigasw/8543749969/in/photostream What is still missing is a way to make use of the back light.

Re: Very simple Raspberry Pi Radio

Hi Gerben,
that really looks cool!

I recently have connected a 16x2 LCD to the pi. (I want a solution without a screen, be it on a notebook or a smartphone).

Re: Very simple Raspberry Pi Radio

The "in box version" will have LEDs in two different colors. I use an USB sound stick now; sound quality is better than with the built in one. What I am still looking for is a software / addon for mpd that can be used as an eqalizer and that can as well be controlled using the remote. (I still remem...
