Button shim and audio control


#1

I’m hoping to use the button shim to control pi musicbox. I can see there is a mopidy addon that allows GPIO control. Has anyone done this? Thanks


#2

Button SHIM’s buttons aren’t directly wired to GPIO pins, so I suspect a direct GPIO control addon would not work. It’s something that’s possible, but needs someone to put the effort in to get there. Alas I don’t have as much time as I’d like to solve all these little problems!


#3

Ok. Although I think Mopidy supports keyboard commands so I could do that providing a shim script to take buttons to keyboard commands was running?


#4

Yes, that should work! RPC might also work, too, if Mopidy accepts network/remote commands (I suspect it might do)
