[solved] Troubles installing pisound / verifying power supply


#1

I have troubles installing pisound.
First of all, is there a possibility to check if the power supply is correct, and pissound is correctly powered?

Hi tomme, does the raspberry boot? What errors are you getting?


#3

The raspberry boot with microUSB cable. I can’t verify if the pisound boot or not 'cause i don’t see a ON/OFF led…

To be able to use the beta pisound, you must use an external voltage supply other than USB. See http://wiki.blokas.io/index.php/pisound#Power_Supply

If raspbian or the OS you’re running boots up, you can try installing the driver as described http://wiki.blokas.io/index.php/pisound#Linux_Driver or http://wiki.blokas.io/index.php/Step-by-Step_pisound_Installation_Instructions

p.s. I have split this off to a new topic, as the issue seems different from the other topic.


#6

Question to understand if my powersupply is correct:
If pisound is correctly powered rasperrypi must boot without its usual microUSB cable?


#7

Yes, micro USB cable does not have to be connected for RPI to run.


#8

Hey tomme, as you have solved this issue, can you share what power supply worked for you?

Thank you!
