I think that TonUINO is now International, I’m Michele and I’m new in the community, Italian and currently living in Wien.
This week I’ve ordered the components and yesterday assembled everything. With my little knowledge of german and Google translate I’ve managed properly so far but now I need some support.
I did’nt get how to organise the mp3s and the folders and how to setup and how to assign to every mp3 the correct card.
Can somebody help me?
the sd-card has to be formatted fat16 or fat. This means you can only use cards up to 32gb.
The structure should be:
Use the files from the repository for the folders advert and mp3.
Put your own files in the folders 01 to 99. Each folder can contain 255 mp3 files named 001.mp3, 002.mp3 up to 255.mp3.
Prepare a folder on your pc and copy it to the card in one go.
Put your sd card in the dfplayer, power everything on and put a rfid card on the reader and leave it there.
Now TONuino asks for the folder to attach to this rfid card. Navigate through the folders with the vol-up vol-down button and press play for the folder you like. TONuino says the number and starts playing the first file in the folder while navigating.
Next it asks for the mode for the selected folder. Again navigate through modes with vol-up and vol-down and press play if done.
That depends on the software you have installed. On the stable one you need to long press the volume buttons for volume change. And hold play Pause to reconfigure a card. On the DEV version you can change the button behavior on the admin menu (i.E. swap volume with next track). The reconfigure card is in the admin menu as well when you use the DEV version.
I met some problems of assembly but seem resolved (I have sound, light, badges are read).
Now I try to make it work and it is true that an English manual (or at least in German) would be very practical.
I translated the speech.txt file into French, but I still can not generate the mp3 files (either under linux with create-soundfiles.sh or windows with text2speech)
@nanos did a translation of the current DEV sound files to English. You can download them here. Maybe this helps to get you started. You need to flash the DEV version though, which brings some extended functionality.
Do you see everything recognized fine on the console in the Arduino IDE? It should give you an error message if the NFC reader is not recognized. You should see activity when you hold an empty card near the reader as well. It’s important to have the card near the reader the whole time. Don’t remove it or the the registration will fail.
If you have problems with the German Prompts have a look at my Firmware, it does not have 100% the same functionality as the current DEV (it lacks the recent modifiers and some other minor things) but almost everything else is there (plus LED and infrared remote support). I offer everything I have in german and english (documentation and audio). Maybe this helps you to get familiar with the system. You can then switch back to the official firmware anytime once you know how everything works in principle.
