it would be awesome if we could use USB HID protocol to play/pause playback from ropieee when using a USB DAC that has IR and supports its. My irDAC ii does. Not sure how difficult this would be somebody else is looking into it but I think for a mac server not an endpoint.
Any updates on getting HID media control support into RoPiee? I have an Oppo HA-1 connected via USB and the infrared remote that comes with the unit does not work. I switched to RoPiee to get native DSD256 working, since that doesn’t work via a Macbook Pro, so now I have to choose whether to lose DSD256 or remote control…
Implementing HID should also allow plugging in an external keyboard with media controls, no?
Thanks for the reply. That isn’t the issue. I literally just unplugged the HA-1 from my Mac (where remote works) and plugged into the Raspberry Pi. Also, the mute button, volume, etc. non-media controls that go directly to Oppo, work.
I’m running RoPieee on a Raspberry Pi 4 - works great and recognizes my several USB DACs. I just connected a HiBy FD1 DAC/Amp - realized the FD1’s flat, square shape fits perfectly on top of my Pi’s Geekworm fan-less case. Like an external HAT! I was excited because the FD1 has hardware control buttons. The volume buttons work, but the play/pause does not. Bummer. Is this the same issue others on this thread were talking about? I tried the FD1’s switch that changes it from USB 1.0 to 2.0, but that did not change things. The FD1 is only $59. If this is still an outstanding issue just waiting for the developer to have test hardware, I’d be happy to donate this FD1 to the cause, or buy a new one and ship it to you. If that would help.
