Volumio for Khadas

Yes, terminal wrote “wrong custom code”

Hi Oleg,

Thanks for your work.

I have tried Volumio-0.5-2018-04-07-aml9xxxarmv7.img.zip on VIM2, it works well, and Tone Board is also supported, but I found that I can’t adjust the volume, do you have this issue?

Hi, Nick.
Yes, I, too sometimes mean such behavior, but sometimes restart Volumio adjustment of is beginning to work. By the way, I have collected a new version, it includes support for i2s.


Is this a new Board for VIM ? And what modules do you connect or does it work without loading modules ?

Hi Oleg,

Please refer to this

No other modules needed with image Volumio-0.5-2018-04-07-aml9xxxarmv7.img.zip.

it i’m is now clear that the standard USB ports on the 40 pin connector are used.

Yes, you are right.:wink:

As for the custom code, probably this is the one for the Odroid remote I did 2 years ago. This one needs to be replaced with the one for VIM.
But this is not a VIM/VIM2 specific build, is it? Or are we making one?

There is a plugin to work with remote controls.

It has settings for several options of control panels. I tried installing this plugin. Added to the plugin directory text files with settings for the Vim console (this is an edited copy of the files from Odroid with codes taken from the file for Libreelec).

Now you can select “Vim Remote” in the settings of the web interface. But when you try to use the console, the console has a display of codes that come from the remote, but the reaction in the system to them.
I think the reason is not the correct configuration files lircd.conf.

@Gouwa @numbqq @Terry can you provide a settings file for the lirc for the VIM console ?

Скрипт на python3 для автоматического запуска с последнего трека и времени при выключении Volumio.
Понадобится установить pip3 и библиотеку request

Скрипт писался под Asus Tinker Gpio.
Позже поправлю под Khadas (если получится добратся из питона до gpio status - я так понимаю прейдется через proc ).
И так логика работы.
При включении считывается номер трека и его время при Выключении.
После пропадания 1 на Гпио включается пауза и записываются данные о треке в файл.
Если за время (пока чуть больше 100 сек - можно изменить легко) на Гпио появится 1 то продолжится воспроизведение, если не появится на Гпио 1 - то система выключится.

Сам скрипт.
В папке со скриптом создайте файл от своего юзера с именем track.number
С таким содержанием

Не пинайте если что за код он не такой красивый но работает.


All DEV things are welcome, but … MPD version 20.06 is a real problem! MPD 20.10 or higher is needed to be added in the standard image to avoid manual install it later on.

Volumio sounds much better using pure UAC2 and this is achievable only by disabling (not using) on board VIM audio (because of ALSA). The same is for I2S.

Please don’t forget that Volumio is … THE OPEN AUDIOPHILE MUSIC PLAYER, and not just a music player!

Я могу написать ето по русски тоже, но я не уверен в правильности написания :slight_smile:

On this subject, there was already a response from the developers that this version is still being tested and is not yet recommended for use in standard deliveries.

Do not use the dtb file - this automatically disables the built-in sound systems.
If necessary, I can add a dtb file option with the audio portion disabled.

I use it exactly this way for my self with MPD upgraded to 30.18 :slight_smile:
But for testing purposes I use your standard image untouched and with all drivers.

Файл в папке на Dropbox обновлен.
Сделал скрипт для Khadas Vim2.
Там же есть инструкция по установке доп пакетов и автозапуска.
С автозапуском пришлось повозится.

По какому пину работает?

gpio176 (PIN37 GPIOH5)
Все описано в readme
Если на пине 1 (3.3 volt) то работает если убрать то пауза и таймер.
Я через оптрон в машине сделал.
Таймер выключения около 60 сек ( но легко можно поменять на то что нужно)

Updated the images on the official website of Volumio. Those who wish can test them.



I tried to add a settings file for the remote control Khadas, but it does not work yet. You may need to change something else in the General settings.

If you are not Wi-Fi adicted, the best image for volumio is still Volumio-0.4-2018-04-05-aml9xxxarmv7.img frpm balbes150. It’s sounds much better than the “official” from volumio download site
Wi-Fi is important for RPi users becouse RPi zero don’t have RJ45 by design for example. For VIM my suggestion is to use wired connection with no Wi-Fi.
