Audio watchdog timer for silent pHAT BEAT / Pirate Radio


#1

My Pirate Radio keeps going silent for ages for no obvious reason.

Is is possible to have an ‘audio watchdog timer’ in the Pirate Radio software i.e. something that causes a reset or some other action if there is no audio output for x seconds?

Not easily- do you have to reset the whole radio, or just hit play/pause again? It could be a networking hiccup. It seems VLC is poor at recovering from those, but there may be a setting related to correcting that.

Sometimes changing the ‘station’ gets it going again other times I have to do a full power cycle.

My gut feeling is its network glitches.
