I currently us an Odroid C2 with Volumio as my music source in my car. Volumio–>Odroid HiFISHIELD2 Toslink–>DSP–>Amps
A second Odroid C2 is running Android5.1 and I use this to control Volumio via the Web interface.(as well as GPS and other things)
Odroid has a way to safely shutdown the C2 via android app and GPIO pin pulse.
I have no way to shut down the Volumio Odroid C2 safely besides the webGUI/shutdown. I usually just turn off the power, have not had issues yet.
SO I am considering replacing the Volumio Odroid C2 with an Intel NUC with a miniBOX NUC DCDC intelligent power supply for safe shut down when the key is off. http://www.mini-box.com/DCDC-NUC
Before buying a NUC and power supply, I wanted to confirm that the NUC and Volumio will safely shutdown when the Power supply sends the shutdown pulse? I know it works with Windows as i have had a carPC for 15 years, does it work the same with Volumio/Linux or will it be the same as a hard shutdown?
Thanks for all the hard work, I have no less than (4) Volumio servers in my house/car!
