Pimoroni Scroll pHAT + Volumio


#1

Dear Pimoroni community,
did anyone manage to display the song title played via Volumio (https://volumio.org/) or another MPD on an PI-attached Pimoroni Scroll pHAT?
I even rather would like a Pi Zero with scroll pHAT display the title of a song that is playing on another Pi with Volumio on my network.
As I am not much of a python programmer, any idea or help is welcome.
Many thanks and best regards
Muhackl

I have a program that does something similar, I’m using my Volumio player as a radio.

I could post the whole program, or, if you prefer to delve a little yourself, you might like to start here :

Hi,
I’d like to revive this topic. I startet this project again and did not find a solution since. The page @TracyS posted is down unfortunately. So I would be happy for any help.

you could look at some examples here :

basically you need to connect to your MPD source, then you can get status information, details of the currently playing song, etc.

maybe try and get a bit of code running and come back if you need more help?

Cheers,
Tracy.
