For the RDS EDM plugin, you're of limited to using those pins. I use a different pair myself. I can't remember right now which ones they are, but I know I had to change the values for the plugin. You'll want to make sure t take a long ok at the pinout for the light to make sure you pick alternate pins of the correct type.

I had updated the plugin a deem months ago and v1.8 worked ok.  There have been some changes I think with the code recently and I haven't done any testing the last 6 months.  It's good you got things working with the script though- the physical setup is usually the toughest part. For the scrolling txt I think the way to do it means using a RDS function - I'll have to go back to look at what is available with the edm rds chip.  I'll revisit this in the upcoming months but appreciate the feature request and happy to see you getting value out of this.

How can I go about troubleshooting the reason the song text isn't switching?  The callbacks script isnt working?    Either its like not registered, or not functioning?


I am just not sure where to start to troubleshoot--- but I have no problem doing it.  Just point me in the right direction.


Thanks!

First post here!    I got my EDM RDS working tonight, but only from the rds-song.py python script.    I can change everything just fine.    I even enhanced it to change the "program type" option.   I'd like to finish that development and get that to you drlucas.

You should be able to set your fppd log level to 'debug' and check the 'plugins' mask checkbox and get plugin related log messages in fppd.log.

One thing you may want to check is the metadata for the .mp3 file itself.  That's where the script pulls song and artist name from.  You may have already done this, but thought I'd point it out to save you some more difficult debugging if you hadn't done this yet.

Hey everyone,


I've made significant enhancements to the EDM RDS plugin, that I'd like to get checked into github and/or get back to drlucas so he can check it in.    I'm still in progress---but I wanted to get the ball rolling on getting my changes integrated, and maybe (if I am lucky) verified by someone else besides myself.


Its been a ton of fun working on it and I'm very thankful for all the work that got it this far!

I'm all for it. What are the details for the change - I'm a rookie level with github but let me know your info and I'll add as a contributor or you can set up your own repository and people can just test it locally
