VS1053 not playing with the VS1053b Patches w/ FLAC Decoder

Post by karawin » Wed 2017-08-09 0:16

Hi I developed a wifi webradio based on the esp8266 and vs1053 (KaraDio).
at https://hackaday.io/project/11570-wifi- ... and-vs1053

Some users reported that with the patch loaded, the vs1053 is not able to play.
When the patch is not loaded, it play well.

The version reads on the chip is 4, so a vs1053.

Do you know if there are some type of vs1053 that doesn't accept this patch (2.40)?
What is the B variant? Is there some vs1053 without the B and if yes, are they able to accept the patch?

Thanks

There might be some very old pre-production vs1053a IC's around, otherwise all of them should vs1053b/vs8053b and compatible with the vs1053b patches package.

Are there specific files that do not play, or nothing is played?

If the markings on the IC indicate vs1053a, then the patch indeed is not compatible.
