Baby tunes

So, here’s a first for me – a post about a finished project. Well, OK, not finished but in production at least.

Friday night the radio in the nursery kicked it.

I think the warranty has expired.
I’ve been meaning to make a headless RasBMC player anyway, so I distracted the baby with the box from my new router and jumped in.

It works! My music is mirrored on a NAS with an SMB option. I can export my existing playlists to the hard drive with a few tweaks in notepad++ to fix the paths. I’ve got a usb powered surface transducer to help keep the sound low.

Eventually I’d like to pack the entire thing in the clock radio guts. But that will have to wait ;)
