I'm newbie for Rune Audio and have been testing it with an earlier version of Raspberry (the first ver.) for more than a week. It just works and I'm pretty happy with the reliability.
Now I have a DIY project in my mind which includes a set-top-box like device that has 1 x Raspberry 2, 1 x Raspberry A(which I already have) and a 3.5" touch LCD. As the only way to access RuneUI is using another device browser (mobile or desktop), my plan is to configure "Raspberry A + 3.5 touch LCD + Raspbian" and autoload "RuneUI of Raspberry 2" in web browser after the boot-up.
My main purpose is continuously displaying the Playback screen and show the cover over my AMP. In order to skip to next track or see the playing song name, I do not want to unlock iPhone and call RuneUI from Safari.
I have some concerns;
- Will 3.5" 480x320 display will successfully show track details and cover?
- I will need two power supplies, one ETH hub to connect two Raspberries and a bigger housing,
- Anyone tried such a solution before? Do you think it is meaningful?
Thanks in advance,
