Graham and all.


For what is worth, I have been having very good luck using the Pine Rock64 SBC as a replacement for the Raspberry Pi-3B.   I can tell you that it runs circles around the Pi and moreover it can be outfitted very inexpensively with eMMC very inexpensively that make the Rock64 run even faster.  I can’t testify as to how well it will simultaneously support streaming as I have yet to configure it to do so. 


The Ayufan OS’s have been improving in reliability but at present I have been having very good stability with the DietPi Linux image running OP25 with not freeze ups at all running the http console and switching among plots.

Occasional stalling seems to have been an ongoing problem for me with the RPI3.  Most of the time it'll run for day or weeks, then out of the blue the audio ceases to be sent to broadcastify.  If I pull up the terminal screen the tsbk counter is running and the darkice process is present, but silence...  Curiously the same symptoms have never manifested themselves on my other (main) stream hosted on an intel powered laptop.

Very soon I'm going to be moving away from using the PI3 as a host so hopefully reliability will improve.  I obtained an Intel NUC7I5 that is going to run both feeds in parallel with the new web-based terminal as the front end.  It cost 20x more than the PI3, but if it increases reliability and doesn't need so much babysitting it'll have been worth it.
