    White Noise Night Light

    So the lights on the Speaker pHAT are called the VU Meter. Are you 100% sure the /etc/asound.conf file is moved or renamed? I googled "disable VU Meter on Speaker pHat" and got a few results, those might help. One suggestion was to run the following after renaming or deleting the /etc/asound.conf file; "sudo systemctl restart pulseaudio"As for the noises, they will just play over top of each other if you don't stop them in between (I had thought about calling the killall command from the stop button before each sound, but sometimes I like layering whitenoise and rain). If stop isn't working, test to see that the command actually works. After starting a sound, in the SSH terminal run "killall omxplayer.bin" if nothing happens, then there's a problem.If ...

After starting a sound, in the SSH terminal run "killall omxplayer.bin" if nothing happens, then there's a problem.If ctrl+c is killing the webapp, when you run it from the terminal, put an ampersand '&' after the command "python3 webbapp.py &" that should run it in the background and drop you back to the terminal.Hope that helps. Let me know how it goes. Good Luck!

    Interesting. Well, since I can't measure feet of streaming music, I'll have to stick to counting seconds. Even though having a number like "274 seconds" is pretty meaningless, but it'll still be cool to have it functional.

    Nope, no tubes. Couldn't find one of those for cheap enough. Everyone wants a fortune for them, even the ones in rough shape.

    I've started making one of these and I've got to the part where I'm wiring up the circuit. Why are you using such high resistance resistors? The 10mm diffused red LED has a 1.85 - 2.1 forward V at 20amps, so wouldn't you only need a 68 ohm resistor? Or is there more than 3.3 volts supplied by each pin? I feel like I'm missing something, and I don't want to burn out an LED or fry a resistor.
