Port to NTC CHIP?

It's a small $9 computer with onboard Bluetooth and Wifi... seems like the perfect candidate!

This tiny thing has the perfect specs for its size :) connecting this to any DACs and then your integrated amp would make it much perfect

Actually it has two I2C buses.

"*)The XIO GPIO pins are provided by an I2C Expander at address 0x38 on the TWI bus 2, as such, this address is not available on bus 2."

It's not I2C you need its i2s you need for audio.

Port to NTC CHIP?

Hi,

I'm interested in this too. Any updates? Is there any guide to port volumio to new platforms? I have both the CHIP sdk and a volumio build env ready !

I'd like to build a wireless speaker with :
  1. vintage radio box
  2. a disassembled Genelec 8040a (amp+loudspeakers)
  3. volumio
  4. CHIP computer

By the way, does the audio output of the CHIP worth it?

I'm very interested as well. I've got Volumio 1.5 running on a couple of chips and it's great, but a little wonky. I can't attach to a network share via the interface, so I do it via the OS. But for some reason it won't automatically connect when the CHIP is booted and I have to manually mount the share. I don't normally turn off the CHIP, so not a big problem.

Volumio2 is a huge step forward and I'd love to see a port or some guidance on how to install on a non-supported system. I've seen something about porting Volumio2, but given my limited Linux expertise, they've been confusing.
