I had the problem that after setting up Pi MusicBox, AirPlay worked fine. Then after a couple of hours, where it wasn’t in use, but was turned on, I tried AirPlay again only to find that it would skip / modulate and speed up randomly. My first thought is that is might be that the Raspberry Pi is overheating, as I measured the temperature to be around 50 C.
My Raspberry Pi isn’t in a case, as I have just bought it, and is only passively cooled (without a heatsink). I had read that this should be enough, as the Raspberry Pi would throttle itself to keep cool, but I might be mistaking in this.
I am totally new to Raspberry Pis, and therefore don’t know much about the accessories needed. But is there a way to ensure it doesn’t overheat using passive cooling and without a heat sink?
I hope this makes sense, if anyone requires further information then I am happy to give them.
