Audio watchdog timer for silent pHAT BEAT / Pirate Radio


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.
