WIFI Web radio receiver - DLNA audio renderer Luigi Findanno 2016 I don't designed a schematic and some explanations are not detailed but if you don't know (for example) how to connect a rotary encoder to Arduino, use the search engine you prefer. For other things you don't understand, use the same method. Hardware: 1) Router with USB port supported by OpenWrt 1) USB hub 1) USB stick 1GB (only for extroot, perhaps not mandatory) 1) USB audio card (PCM2704 tested) 1) Arduino nano 1) LCD 16x2 display with PCF8574 I2C expander 2) Rotary encoder with push button 1) 2 pole push button (230V inside) 1) LED (power on indicator) 1) 5V Relais transistor drived Resistors for encoders (10K), push buttons (10K), power on LED (330R) Connect the USB stick, USB audio card and Arduino Nano to the USB hub then connect the USB hub to the router. Find the 5V and GND on the router board, take it to power on the Arduino Nano. Arduino connections: LCD 16x2 I2C SDA A4 SCL A5 First pole of push button D4 (active HI) Relay D5 Power on LED D5 Volume encoder D9 D10 Push button Volume encoder D7 (active LOW, mute function) Tuner encoder D11 D12 Relay contacts: Common and Normally Open contacts are in serie with 230V before the router power supply (as a main power on switch). The second pole of push button (NO) is in parallel to them. Also insert a little switch in parallel to Common and NO relay contacts. It MUST be ON ONLY when you burn the Arduino firmware. Other electrical connections: Remove C4 from Arduino Nano board (it is connected to reset). See the schematic https://www.arduino.cc/en/uploads/Main/ArduinoNano30Schematic.pdf Some hardware considerations: You can compile OpenWrt for a lot of platforms as: Raspberry PI, Cosino, Carambola and so on. When possible, you can use a I2S DAC for the audio output. Wifi connection is not mandatory, you can use a cabled ethernet connection. Software: Compile OpenWrt including the following packages: stty usbutils block-mount kmod-fs-ext4 kmod-usb-ohci kmod-usb-serial kmod-usb-serial-ch341 kmod-usb-serial-ftdi kmod-usb-storage kmod-usb-storage-exstras kmod-sound-core kmod-usb-audio ffmpeg madplay mpd mpc upmpdcli avrdude usleep Flash the router. Configure the wifi as client (sta) and disable dnsmasq to save memory. Extroot is perhaps not mandatory but I did (see the OpenWrt documentation). Burning Arduino firmware: Install the Arduino libraries RotaryEncoder and PCF8574_HD44780_I2C. Compile and export radio.ino with the Arduino IDE (tested on 1.6.5 version). Use scp to copy radio.hex arduino firmware on the OpenWrt router. Login into router. Run flasharduino radio.hex and press the arduino reset push button in 1 second. Openwrt RadioDLNA software: Create the following folder /root/.mpd /root/.mpd/playlists /root/music Install mpd, mpc, upmpdcli with opkd command. Copy or modify the configuration files in the path as indicated in the repository openwrt folder. Note: use scp to copy the files from your PC to the router and vi editor to modify the files on the router. Edit with your data: /etc/config/wireless (ssid and key) /etc/config/network (gateway IP) Run the commands /etc/init.d/upmpdcli enable /etc/init.d/radio enable You can edit the /root/radiolist file and add you favorite internet radios. Reboot.
