Please forgive me for crashing into your online community- in which I am a stranger to you, but not to the gear. I hope I am not a big bother and someone here might understand my plight and find it easy to copy and paste me some links. If this is the type of request that comes in twice a day... my bad.
I am no stranger to the Pi. I have been using it as a cable cutting device for almost six years and the amount I have not spent on cable service itself, along with their their included set top box DVR charge per month, taxes and all the other fees since I cut the cord- my savings have topped topped over $6,500 earlier this year to date since I started using the Pi. Love it. I've branched out trying to buy other SBCs with more horsepower, but seem to keep returning to the Pi.
I've used Volumio and Rune before. I have no problem getting Rune running and using it. I like it. I'd like to be directed to being able to use Rune for online streaming services. Podcasts? http:// stream addresses? Some other way to use add-ones like in the video section? Any hints, tutorials you know of, other threads, cool projects....
Help Request ONE:
Looking to be able to
Audio Add Ons

--USE 3rd PARTY HiFi multi-pin DAC Hat: PiFi Dac+ v2.0
edit: I forgot to write about the DAC. It's a Chinese knock off that supposedly works with the HiFi Berry setting in Rune. Can anyone confirm or deny? I got it working on one of the Rune settings before. The name on my knock off is:
"PiFi DAC+ v2.0"
there it is, sitting on a Pi.
SONG & ARTIST "simple" DISPLAY
I am not opposed to any embedded on device GUI, whether it be just DOT Matrix type text on 2 or 3 lines and simple contols that move up, down, left, right, "enter" with buttons used for scrolling. Realizing Rune is controlled by browser, probably just the artist/song display on that simple display is what I am after. Assuming Rune will continue to be controlled via a web interface. Again, simple display on the device, which again- will be a stereo component with amps with few contrls and a little display... like this:
Pandora, Spotify, Some Podcasting Service, Obscure Audio App by my favorite band, Amazon Music, Google Music, http:// streaming links, YouTube Music(?), Future Streams
There seems to be a hodgepodge of elements of this project on Instructables ads sites like it. I'd just like some pointers on some good tutorials for this stuff. The display on the outside is what I'll need most help with, along with integrating an Arduino.
Just looking to put it all together and not miss something really important.
Pointers, tips and advice all welcomed.
And.... again, sorry if people come here with big ideas all the time asking for advice. The difference my be that I actually complete this stuff.
