A HiFiBerry installation with button control and LCD display

RPi HiFiBerry 2014 openPieter Kleinjahn has installed a Raspberry Pi, the HiFiBerry DAC, some buttons and a LCD display in one box.

The buttons can be used to control MPD. Distributions like Volumio and RuneAudio are based on MPD, therefore this could be interesting for many readers. Peter has provided the Python script that controls everything. You can download it here: mydisplay-20140409. Note that we provide this “as is” without any support. However, the code is clean and well-documented. Therefore it should be relatively easy to adapt it to your needs.

Help wanted – Linux kernel development

tux_enhanced_penguin_linux_art-1979pxTo improve our HiFiBerry drivers (especially for the HiFiBerry Digi), we’re looking for somebody who can support us with some kernel development. The person should be familiar with the ALSA sound subsystem. We need to create a sound subdevice similar to the sound driver for the HDMI output. This will be included in the official Raspberry Pi Linux kernel.

Is somebody interested in supporting us here? Contact us!
