Hi,
after search and search , try and error for a few days
i have worked out a super easy way to use all 4 outputs of the logilink 7.1 usb soundcard.
how to:
*install the multisqueeze plugin.
set in mediaplayer squeezelite any soundcard exept something from the logilink usb card
i used „equal – equal“ (save)
* desactivate autostart squeezelite (save)
*now use a terminal program like „putty“ to get acces to your raspberry pi.
*login as pi with password raspberry
type the command cd ..
type the command cd ..
type the command cd etc
type the command sudo nano asound.config (this opens the file in an editor)

*just paste the next few lines under the existing text

pcm.dshare {
type dmix
ipc_key 2048
slave {
pcm „hw:1“
rate 44100
period_time 0
period_size 1024
buffer_size 8192
channels 8
}
bindings {
0 0
1 1
2 2
3 3
4 4
5 5
6 6
7 7
}
}
pcm.frontx {
type plug
slave {
pcm „dshare“
channels 8
}
ttable.0.0 1
ttable.1.1 1
}
pcm.centerx {
type plug
slave {
pcm „dshare“
channels 8
}
ttable.0.2 1
ttable.1.3 1
}
pcm.backx {
type plug
slave {
pcm „dshare“
channels 8
}
ttable.0.4 1
ttable.1.5 1
}
pcm.surroundx {
type plug
slave {
pcm „dshare“
channels 8
}
ttable.0.6 1
ttable.1.7 1
}

if you want you can change the names frontx centerx backx and surroundx to whatever you want (exept to back because this is seen as a command, just ad an x to be sure)

*save the asound.conf file
reboot
and magicaly the 4 names of the outputs are selectable in your multisqueeze player options.

* et voila you have a multiroom system for 4 rooms with 1 pi and a 25$ usb soundcard.
isn’t that great.

i would say well done for a noob who didn’t know wat alsa was a few days ago.
