WHOA! You sound perfectly capable of making this work.Sorry I tried every option I could find and no luck. I want my RPi 3b+ to boot TTD 70 on boot but it wont work no matter what I try. I am completely new to this. I was able to get the program to execute a script that plays a station tone and activates a strobe in the bunkroom and play audio after the tone. .
I noticed that TTD will not open unless I open and run pulse audio first so I make sure to do that when I SSH in or use a tv/monitor so I added pulse audio in crontab
When I went into the crontab it shows a syntax error Non-ASCII character '\x99' in file /home/pi/TTD/TwoToneDetect70 on line 2, but no encoding declared...
Maybe Im doing it totally wrong, idk...went through a bunch of searches and youtube videos with no luck
So I got frustrated and tried to download the TTD image from the website onto a brand new SD card I bought today and no matter what I do to the SD card (followed instructions from raspberry pi site) its just the rainbow screen.
Any help is appreciated!
Try this route:
1. Download the v70 zip file from the Windows version section to your regular computer.
2. Extract the files.
3. Image your new SD card with the latest Raspbian image ( no need for the recommended software, just make sure you get the full image, not the lite version.). The pi3 B+ requires the latest OS otherwise you get the rainbow screen that you saw. Boot the pi using the fresh image.
4. Create a directory in the /home/pi directory called TTD.
5. Copy the four highlighted files from the extracted folder (see attached pic) to new directory on the pi. If you struggle with this, try putting them on a usb stick and inserting it into the pi.
6. On the pi, in the TTD folder create an empty file called simply ffmpeg.
7. Install pavucontrol on the pi. You can search for it in the add software menu item or install it from a Terminal window by typing sudo apt install pavucontrol. Now in the Sound and Video menu item, start pavucontrol.
8. Open the Terminal window on the pi’s desktop. Change to the TTD directory (cd TTD). Type python TwoToneDetect70.pyc at the command prompt. This will attempt to start TTD . You will likely get an error message, report back here what it is. I am not sure what dependencies may be missing from the new Raspbian OS but there will likely be a couple to install. You may be able to figure out from the messages which ones they are and install them yourself. I believe one is related to pushbullet.
Once you get this far and have TTD running we can then work on autostart.
