Toon App: Volumio

Toon controller for the Volumio player.

What is Volumio?
Volumio is a free and Open Source Linux Distribution, which runs on a variety of devices, typically small and cheap computers like the Raspberry Pi, but also on low power PCs, notebooks or thin clients. It is designed and finely-tuned exclusively for bit-perfect music playback, transforming your device into a headless Audiophile Music Player, that is controlled via your mobile phone, computer or tablet.

To let it work, create 4 playlists in Volumio and give them and name them 1 2 3 and 4 . Each playlist can contain 1 webradio station. Like in the Volumio workaround:

• music-library -> webradios -> volumio selection -> webradio -> click on right-side menu -> add to queue (this was the only thing in the queue)
• queue -> save as playlist (created a new playlist)
• music-library -> playlists - I can see the new playlist and it contains the right webradio.

In the Toon Setup screen select 4 short names for each button refering to playlist 1 2 3 and 4.

BTW: I do not have Volumio myself so i cannot help with questions related to Volumio.

Looks like it since it is a shield for the raspberry pi and volumio runs on a pi. I have not installed volumio myself so maybe another memeber can help?

It does look like Raspberry-pi hardware, then it should work. I use a DAC+ (Hifiberry) and that works great thanks to Oepi-loepi

Quoted from the alieespress reviews on the page : After checking, 'HiFiBerry Digi' is the card I selected in Volumio which got this working. And I am currently listening via the coax output.

So, yes. It should work
