I just installed Volumio on a Raspberry equipped with the official Raspberry touchscreen. It’s nice how everything works quite out of the box (note: I’m not a Linux afficionado…).
However, what I dislike is that while using my PC browser or smartphone as “remote control” works well, everything get’s very laggy when using the touchscreen (slow scrolling, delayed playback, things like that). However, this might be homemade, as I’m still on a RPi B+. What’s your experience with newer RPis? Can I expect more speed when using a more up to date model of the RPi?
Also, what annoys me is that the display goes black after a couple of minutes. Is there a way to prevent this? I’d like to have the album art and metadata visible at all times. I understand that there might be a little danger of burning in the display, but since I’m not a heavy user, I would risk it. The best option would be to have the display go to reduced illumination after a while and go back to full illumination whenever the information displayed is changed (new song, notifications, etc).
And, finally, after the first reboot the tabs on the screen don’t read “Playback”, “Browse”, etc anymore, but something more cryptic like :common.tab_playback and common.tab_browse. How can I revert this?
