Haven't done any serious programing since the mid 80's and after that was lucky to have lots smart folks around after so I didn't have to do much more than point at problems and wait for the smart guys to do something about them.
No programming per se involved although there are numerous kernel parameters that can be tuned. Two that Soundchekk recommended involve increasing the buffer size (which can be done using the PiCorePlayer interface) and turning off the HDMI output if you plan to run it headless like most folks do.
On the Advanced Tab of Squeezelite you'll find "Buffer Size Settings". He suggests entering 20000:600000. That creates a huge output buffer that eliminates streaming.
You'll need to directly "hack" the config.txt file in the root folder of the PiCorePlayer sd card. No biggie, just add:
If you're running Windows, use Wordpad as it preserves the Linux carriage returns.
I have 24,000mAh Powerpack capable of 5V 2A output. Would that work?
Absolutely. Right voltage and more than enough current. I have a collection of battery packs at 1A and 2.1A and plan to try those as well.
Run it on Ethernet only and save a few milliwatts.
Let me know how the 2.1A supply works as that's exactly the spec. of my 24,000mAh battery pack I'd like to try.
In many ways, firmware configuration is less intuitive and straightforward that older programing languages like Basic, FORTRAN and COBOL. Even the HEX machine language instruction set for the Motorola 68000 fairly easy to understand. Took a few steps to do any though. ;-)
Last night I listened for a couple of hours using a 1A battery and am now using the "big" 2.1A Jockery.
I'm finding these offer more resolution than my cheapie Jameco linear, albeit not as convenient. :)
