I’ve just put together the Pirate Radio kit, I’m having a few problems getting it up and running.
I ran the standard installer for airplay using
curl -sS get.pimoroni.com/airdac | bash and i can now see the raspberry pi under airplay on my iPhone however the phat beat doesn’t seem to do anything. There is no audio and no VU LEDs are lit.
I tried to run the tests to see if they shed anylight using:
The tests start to run but theres no indicator from the phat beat that anything is happening. The tests seem to get stuck when they reach the
Testing VU Meter and the tests hang there. However i never hear any test sounds in the tests it run prior to this.
I also tried execute the
python test.py script and nothing seems to happen, the terminal goes to a new line and it hangs there.
I used the GPIO hammer headers, and there appear to be no contact issues between the headers and the board.
Is there anything I may have missed or could I have a faulty Phat Beat?
