via Google I found this forum, so maybe I can find some experts here for the problems I encountered while planning a new project: an internet radio via Raspberry Pi and a compartible touchscreen. Since my kitchen radio broke some days ago and I still have a Raspberry Pi around, that might be a good use for it along with a small touch screen. Some questions that came up:
Is it possible to automatically start Volumino (or a similar software) after booting a RasPi, perhaps with a script of some sort like using the Autostart on Windows? If yes, how so?
How to best manage the audio. Here I thought about using a small BT speaker. Is it possible to use these with a cable 24/7? Sound does not have to be that great, just at least better than the tiny little small speakers in my old radio.
Now the hard part: Is it somehow possible to solder any kind of manual switch to a RasPi to get it to shutdown fast/automatically? Since I need to get up at 5am each morning while having only very limited time, I just lack the time and I dont feel like shutting it down manually each time.
I think especially #3 will be the hardest part. Anyone tried similar projects before? Thank you in advance.
