I'm using an Orange Pi Zero as a base for a WiFi radio. The basic operation should be

  1. Boot
  2. Connect to Wifi
  3. Load bash script using MPD/MPC to connect to wifi stream
  4. Set volume
  5. Check potentiometer circuit and adjust volume if needed

So far I have the OPi imaged with armbian (jessie) and have the stream connecting, potentiometer working and audio playing. My issue is getting the board to connect to wifi at boot.

The WiFi will connect when I set it up over SSH using either nmtui or armbian-config however when rebooting the OPi will not re-connect.

Any help appreciated
