The best Multimedia center I've tried is KODI, so I will install an configure it for this project.
For a short and easy install solution, I will install OSMC. It is based on Debian, which means that it has over 30,000 packages available in its repositories which makes it very expansive.
Regarding to your OS, get the last version installer on the page https://osmc.tv/download/ and start it with a double click.
Don't forget to turn on SSH acces during the install process. The befault login is osmc and password is osmc.
That the easy part : everything is done ! Enjoy.
You can grab the box I used for this raspberry here : http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:922740
By default crontab is not install on the raspberry Pi.
Install crontab, and edit a cronjob for root :
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install cron
sudo crontab -e
Create the job (for root) :
# arret de la machine de dimanche a vendredi
30 20 * * 0-5 /sbin/shutdown -h now
# arret de la machine les samedis
30 23 * * 6 /sbin/shutdown -h now
Now, your raspberry will poweroff (shutdown) at 20:30 from sunday to friday and at 23:30 on saturday
OSMC can browse content from a Samba share, this is what we need to add our medias from a NAS.
In OSMC program, go to :
Add repo to yum and install :
cd /etc/yum.repos.d/wget http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/isv:<span class="search_hit">ownCloud</span>:community/CentOS_CentOS-7/isv:<span class="search_hit">ownCloud</span>:community.repoyum install <span class="search_hit">owncloud</span>cd /var/www/html/chown -R apache.apache <span class="search_hit">owncloud</span>/
Install Apache and Mariadb :
yum install httpd php php-mysql mariadb-server mariadb sqlite php-dom php-mbstring php-gd php-pdo
If you have selinux, you must give right to write data :
setsebool -P httpd_unified 1
Open the firewall for Apache :
firewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=httpfirewall-cmd --permanent --zone=public --add-service=httpsfirewall-cmd --reload
Start Apache and MariaDB :
systemctl start httpd.servicesystemctl start mariadb.service
systemctl enable httpd.servicesystemctl enable mariadb.service
Create the mariadb data base :
mysql -u root -pcreate database <span class="search_hit">owncloud</span>;grant all on <span class="search_hit">owncloud</span>.* to 'clouddbuser'@'localhost' identified by '<yourPassword>';quit
Apache settings :
vi /etc/httpd/conf.d/<span class="search_hit">owncloud</span>.conf
#<IfModule mod_alias.c># Alias /<span class="search_hit">owncloud</span> "/var/www/html/<span class="search_hit">owncloud</span>/"#</IfModule> <Directory "/var/www/html/<span class="search_hit">owncloud</span>"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride All Order allow,deny allow from all</Directory>
Restart Apache :
systemctl restart httpd.service
I use ocloud for Android wich work silently. You can found it here on Google play
I use a rsync command from the Raspberry and my owncloud server.
You need to define a SSH key from the osmc default user :
sudo apt-get install ssh ssh-keygen -t dsa -b 1024 -f ~/.ssh/cloud
Transfer the public key to the remote server :
ssh-copy-id -i ~/.ssh/cloud YourRemoteUserInOwncloudServer@YourOwncloudServerName
And the rsync command that you have to run in a cron job every 10 minutes (This rsync, will copy a remote directory /data/owncloud/YourRemoteUserInOwncloudServer/files/InstantUpload/ content to the local directory /home/osmc/cloud/)
rsync -avz -e "ssh -i /home/osmc/.ssh/cloud" YourRemoteUserInOwncloudServer@YourOwncloudServerName:/data/owncloud/YourRemoteUserInOwncloudServer/files/InstantUpload/ /home/osmc/Pictures/
There are so many screen saver that you can use in OSMC...
In the settings of the screensaver, you just have to define the source folder as /home/osmc/Pictures and enjoy.
I look for a good solution to output a nice music quality from my Raspberry Pi 3. So I don't want a software correction or something similar, I realy need an hardware solution.
On this page I describe the solution I tried (?) and the other I've found on the web.
Standard version : €24.90
The HiFiBerry Digi+ is a high-quality S/PDIF output board for the Raspberry Pi model A+/B+, Raspberry Pi 2 and 3.
The MAMBOBERRY HiFi DAC+ is a high-resolution digital-to-analog converter(DAC) for the Raspberry Pi models A+/B+ and 2B/Zero/Pi 3.
Specially designed to deliver the best audio playback quality, and also an ultra low power supply ! with 1A power ability, for the Raspberry Pi models.
I didn't test the Mamboberry as it is a DAC, but the HifiBerry is a very good solution and give me the quality I was looking for.
The HifiBerry is very simple to plug and comes with all the screws you need to be attach on the Raspberry card. By default the HifiBerry card use all the Gpio ports, so if you need some, you have to extends the card for that.
Under OSMC, you have to specify the new output card.
