    Yea, def dont throw it away. I had two, and gave one to someone to try to get more interest, so would be fine with a second test unit, or give it to someone else.

    More than happy to send it over if you can cover the cost of postage. I've got no use for it. I did take it out and powered it on once when I first got it, was fully functional (I have not checked recently to see if it has any issues with the battery or not)
    Bradley Ouellette
    @ouellettetech
    Yea, thats fine, lets see if anyone else directly wants it, otherwise I'll hold on to it and use it for testing until another person wants it:)

    Ok please feel free to ping me directly if someone here wants it

    Is there any way to reflash the firmware in an Oboo? Was able to ssh in but then the os (or ssh) got corrupted and now I can't ssh into it or use the website to configure it. Doing a quick port scan on it shows that 22 is not available. I tried to get answers from Onion, but they kept autoreplying with "use the web page to reset it". So into the junk bin it went. Rediscovered it two years later and thought I'd try finding some support for it before I strip it for parts.

    once you get back into ssh you can run: firstboot -y; sync; reboot to do a full factory reset

    Does anyone know where I can buy a new LCD screen for the oboo? The flex cable on mine has a bad connection and will only work I orient the screen in a certain way. The back of the screen has the following numbers BLM-024AP04026-2, JL24017-11. I've tried looking up both numbers but couldn't find a match.

    They sent me a bit about it
    I'll see if I can find what they told me

    ​Sorry to hear that the display no longer works.

    The information that I currently have on-hand is that the LCD is an ILI9341 display.
    I would encourage you to count the number of contacts on the ribbon cable and the diagonal size of the display, and then to search for X-pin Y" ILI9341 displays based on your measurements.

    -Team Onion

    That was their response to m,y support ticket
    I feel like I found several possibilities but I don't have an Oboo any more to look for any more specifics
    Bradley Ouellette
    @ouellettetech
    you could possibly also repair the flex cable? Though I image replacing it is easier....
    chris711
    @chris711
    I can't see any obvious places where the cable needs to be repaired. If I straighten the cable the display works but as soon as I bend it to put the from cover on the display goes blank. The 24 in the part numbers means it is a 2.4 inch display, good to know it is an ILI9341 based display. From the schematic I know it is a 40 pin connector and they are using SPI for the interface. I'll just have to make sure the cable on the replacement is oriented such that it lines up with the connector. Thanks for the help.

    Hi everyone... I'd need some help.
    By accident I have removed the oboo-clock-scripts package and since then the clock wouldn't connect to WiFi. I have tried resetting to factory settings, going through web setup, invoking wifisetup from ssh, but nothing works.

    I can get the file for this package manually from http://repo.getoboo.com/oboo-clock/packages/oboo-clock-scripts_0.0.7-9_mipsel_24kc.ipk

    Any idea how to proceed from there in order to install it manually?

    Milan Petrovic
    @illuminated
    Actually, the package seems to be there after factory reboot (I can see it with opkg list-installed), but I still cannot connect to WiFI
    Milan Petrovic
    @illuminated
    I was able to somehow get it back (the WiFi)...
    The odd thing that happens to me now is that I cannot get working the custom weather API (Open Weather)... the default one works fine. And I cannot turn off the rest of the cards (calendar, timer, music), but apart from that, things work.
    chris711
    @chris711
    The list of cards to start is in the file /etc/init.d/oboo-cards. You can comment out the lines for the cards you don't want started. You can manually start your weather card, that way the output for the card will show up on your terminal and might give you a clue to what is causing the issue. The command will be something like /usr/bin/ort /usr/bin/js/weather.js.

    @ouellettetech
    yea, like chris said I'd try manually starting it, so you see the logs, you can also trying wget/curl on the system to test the url.

    groans The clock did not update to BST and so I rebooted it and it updated but now the display is dim again. I know I set it last time but why did it not save it with a commit?

    Hey peeps. .So Does anyone know how to access audio on the command line of the oboo clock. I actually built my own clock bases around the omega a few years back and I thought the Oboo would be like that only more robust.. Trouble is I see it has all the tools to play audio mpg123 and alsamixer etc.. only no sound devices are found. So how do you play sounds from the host filesystem? I am not interesting is playing audio to it from blue tooth I am more interesting in streaming radio/podcasts or playing custom alarms.
    @ouellettetech: Apparently you are the man to ping about this sort of thing.
    Bradley Ouellette
    @ouellettetech
    @veritanuda:matrix.org yea there was someone that posted how to stream a radio station ill try to look that up and get back to you. Also the mp3 code is in the alarm file. I can find that quickly. Be warned there is ONLY 32MB of storage on the device. Its not too hard to add a usb stick as extra storage, though I really wish tbey had exposed the microsd cards.

    hmmm
    Bradley Ouellette
    @ouellettetech
    Lol, of course it doesnt play directly from alarm... (actually prob better that it doesnt to make surr two different processes don't) they send a mqtt command for audio. publish('/audio', JSON.stringify({
    cmd: 'playLoop',
    value: expireSound
    }));
    You could send the mqtt command from the command line, is one option.

    Well if needed I can mount a network share but for now the sample is already on there I just need to figure how to playit
    I saw the functions.. as laid out but did nto seem to work out how it read the path

    Can I use moquitto_pu to do that?

    Usage: mosquitto_pub [-h host] [-k keepalive] [-p port] [-q qos] [-r] {-f file | -l | -n | -m message} -t topic
    [-A bind_address] [-S]
    [-i id] [-I id_prefix]
    [-d] [--quiet]
    [-M max_inflight]
    [-u username [-P password]]
    [--will-topic [--will-payload payload] [--will-qos qos] [--will-retain]]
    [{--cafile file | --capath dir} [--cert file] [--key file]
    [--ciphers ciphers] [--insecure]]
    [--psk hex-key --psk-identity identity [--ciphers ciphers]]
    [--proxy socks-url]

    Btw, here is the post about playing from a network. https://getoboo.com/community/topic/play-audio-from-network-sources/

    oh hang on he is using mpg123.. lemme see if I can enable the sound card then

    Excellent it works!

    gpioctl dirout-low 41

    enables the internet sound card.

    Bradley Ouellette
    @ouellettetech
    Yea you can use mosquito you bind to localhost, and you pass in the audio file as a parm. Such as the alarm uses "usr/share/oboo/alarm/alarm_classic.mp3"
    Good

    @veritanuda:matrix.org

    Actually as I said I had a script already on Omega 2s from the custom clock I made I wanted to re use that.. :)
    Now mpg123 works I can do that..
    Bradley Ouellette
    @ouellettetech
    Cool, let me know if uou need anything se or want to hekp out. (Honestly havent touched it in a year, need to het back to it, i was trying to get testing setup before pushing a bunch of fixes and then had trouble with testing...)
    veritanuda
    @veritanuda:matrix.org
    [m]
    OK thanks.. I appreciate you remembering for me :)
    Honestly though I have an oboo clock still in it box and I am figuring I need to work out how to compile my own firmware for it. Cause i won't be able to update any more.
    veritanuda

    Ok script is working fine now. Just needed to change the Sound device name and works like a charm
    Actually all it is , is just a script to ring a chime on the hour between 8-midnight because it is for my fathre who is used to an old wind up clock doing that and I just felt it would save him having to look at the clock
    he can't see well anyway.. so..
    But you re tight 32 Mb of storage sucks.. I might do what I did on m custom clock and get it to boot off a microsd card instead.
    I've done that before so assuming it is an omega at it's heart it shoud not be too tough.

    Yoz @ouellettetech I have issues with the Weather not getting updated and showing a blank screen every morning.
    Connecting via WInSCP SSH and added OpenWeather and edit weather.js to use OpenWeather based on https://github.com/ouellettetech/oboo

    Now, how do I restart the service?

    Hansen
    @shenlong
    Oh... I got it.
    It is like linux:
    service oboo-cards restart
    Hansen
    @shenlong

    I noticed the OpenWeather.js is not working.
    Reverting back.

    Anyone knows whether there is logging for the oboo modules? I wanna check the issue where every morning, my oboo screen is blank.

    chris711
    @chris711
    You can go to /etc/config/system and add "option logfile '<logfile path>' and option log_size '64' to add a log file.
