I already sneaked your Github Repo and installed the new version of your script. Really easy installing and good solution to choose what to see on display.
Only it is not working to good for me. I only see the MoOde Logo on display. No CoverArt is shown, no Radio.  I tried following your instruction as close as possible (two times!) but can not make it running.
Any suggestions how to search for the bug?

All the best

Hi Maartin.

I assume you are getting audio ok, and the Moode web interface displays coverart/radio images?

Can you ensure 'Metadata file' is turned on in Moode System Configuration.

I just noticed this was missing from the readme.

If that wasn't the problem then:

if you installed the service, can you post the output of:
Code:
sudo service tft-moodecoverart status

or if not a service, run the script by:

Code:
cd /home/pi/TFT-MoodeCoverArt
python3 tft_moode_coverart.py

does the script crash or give any errors? If so please post then.



Can you also post the contents of "/var/local/www/currentsong.txt". e.g.:

Code:
less /var/local/www/currentsong.txt

Cheers

Yes.

I missed that one (again). Now all images are shown! Yeah!

Thanks for updating!

That's Great

I have tried to catch exceptions in the script, but I'm sure there will be something i haven't foreseen.

Please let me know of any issues if they appear


Regards

Russ

@maartin

The script is up on github, at https://github.com/rusconi/tft-cover

Remember, the ST7735 version works for me, but the ST7789 (PirateAudio) version is untested.
I left the pin assignments t the library as per the Pimoroni documentation, so here's hoping.

Also python-musicpd and mutagen require Python3 so it's essential that any other libraries are installed for python 3. e.g use pip3

@TheOldPresbyope 

The script is as basic as my programming skills.

Python is new to me and I only discovered the mutagen library yesterday.
The script only displays embedded images for MP3s. i'm sure it can be expanded to other formats though.

Looking forward to some feedback.

Hi

The path has changed to https://github.com/rusconi/TFT-MoodeCoverArt

The script works great! Good Job!
I'm a Moode fanboy and was not getting on with the recommended Mopidy install. It was clunking and a little disappointing that the display was not updating internet radio track information (only one hit at connection). And I could not find a power off button on the GUI anywhere.

A couple of things I fell down on was enabling the SPI using raspi-config and switching on the Local Services>Metadata File to ON. But it is your documentation :-)

Thanks again.

The script is great!

Please help me modify the script. I need to leave only CoverArt, without any overlays. I have a second display for info.

OT: Nice. I've been meaning to re-purpose some square OLED displays I used to make a steampunk Halloween costume three years ago and your picture has convinced me now is the time.

Hi

I will add another option to the config file for cover art only

Russ


RE: Pirate Audio 240x240 cover display - rusconi - 04-23-2020

@viladata 

The script and config file have been updated, and uploaded to github

Cover art only is now an option

Edit config.yml to set overlay to 3 as below


Code:
  # Display control overlays:
  # 3=Artwork only
  # 2=Full overlay displayed
  # 1=Volume icon only.
  # 0=no overlay displayed
  overlay: 3


Hope this is what you were after.

This is what I wanted. I'm happy. Thank!


RE: Pirate Audio 240x240 cover display - Sniglar - 05-23-2020

These commands for gpio buttons on the Pirate Audio Headphone DAC no longer work for me in 6.52 (they did on 6.42):
/var/www/vol.sh up 5
/var/www/vol.sh dn 5

I'm currently using:
mpc,volume,+5
mpc,volume,-5

...which work on the DAC display and control the volume but have no effect on the Moode UI volume control graphic.

I've tried a few educated guesses but it appears they're not that educated :0)

Are there new commands I can use to return to a more synchronised volume control?

The help under the SAVE button
"NOTE: Use a comma to delimit arguments in the CMD field. Example: mpc,load,My Playlist"

Try

Code:
/var/www/vol.sh,up,5
