Good morning all
First I’d like to thank you for the work on PiMusicBox. I was stoked when I found it and got it up and running with my local files and the ability to browse spotify, it’s fantastic.
I have an old Pi B+ that I was doing nothing, so I have taken it upon myself to start a new project with an old bush AC2 radio to remove all the old innards and replace with up to date kit; as many others have done before me.
I have the TtsGpio working ok with buttons to control the volume up and down, but I’d like to use a rotary encoder to control the volume and to pause the music. If I connect the SW pin on the encoder to the button mapped to Main on TTS GPIO, it works as a button. I can’t seem to get the volume working with the rotation of the shaft though.
I’ve read about plenty of people getting this working, but with no details on how they managed to do so. I am a system engineer and worked in IT for the past 20 years with some coding experience, but a complete noob to python so any help people could offer would be absolutely fantastic.
I came across this one last night https://github.com/KreMat/mopidy-rotaryencoder but upon attempting to install, I was greeted with unable to locate package.
Thank you in advance
