Support for power button
#1
It could be nice to have support for a power button that would run Moode through the shutdown process.
Sometimes, the browse hangs, and makes access to the shutdown menu impossible. such a button will prevent a corrupted system due to an untimely power cycle. I have had to reinstall moode twice due to such a problem Smile
Furthermore, it could come in handy when installing the rpi as part of system that is usually powered down using one button.

Should be possible to use reboot script like here http://moodeaudio.org/forum/showthread.php?tid=148
or similar and wire a button to GPIO pins to triggers it

Hi,

I sometimes just pul the plug on my systems due to laziness and have never had an issue with SDCard corruption or file system corruption.

I've been using only Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SDCard's for over 4 years and have experienced only 2 bad cards during that time period. Some of my SDCards experience full image reloads or whole Builds almost every day that I'm working on moOde and no issues.

What brand SD Card are u using?

I came across this and have found it to work with 3.81.

Heres something similar:

Getting a LED going might help too (i've not tested this).

"On the HiFiBerry Digi+ Pro GPIOs 5 and 6 are also use and cannot be used for anything else."

"1-2. Connect the wires with GPIO pin 5 & 6."

So my I use GPIOs 5 and 6 for resetting with HiFiBerry Digi+ Pro?

You should probably better ask HiFiBerry directly... Angel
