Firstly thanks to all those who created Ropieee.
Just after a bit of advice with setting up a Pi 3+ and Touchscreen as a replacement for a Squeezebox Touch via USB to an Oppo 205.
Basically I have Roon server at home and Squeezebox server at our other place, where this device will be used. Ultimately, I want to replace the Squeezebox server with a Nucleus when funds’ allow and have Roon servers at both homes.
In the interim, my wife is finally comfortable controlling the Squeezebox Touch/AV receiver with a Logitech remote (plus iPeng on an iPad) and I’m trying to replicate the setup as closely as possible for the sake of marital harmony, no pun intended.
If I install a FLIRC so that she can continue using the Harmony One, do I use a USB extension cable for the FLIRC so that it has line of sight to the remote from behind the Touchscreen and if so, are there any special requirements for this?
I’ve never used a FLIRC before. Do I just program it with the Squeezebox remote or does Ropieee have some other requirement?
If I program it with the Squeezebox remote, I assume that I program the AV receiver’s volume up/down/mute instead of the Squeezebox Touch and that this will work with Ropieee too?
Thanks for your help.
