Just another thought. The text against that checkbox says „Disable Build-In-Audio (remove HDMI/Headphone Jack and put any other connected audiocard on position 0). This may be necessary to get the HifiBerry AMP+ working.“
Whatever I do with that checkbox, set or not set, Kodi audio always goes via HDMI to my TV. So it seems that checking that box does nothing, i.e. it is not removing HDMI or putting my audio card on position 0 – hence Kodi cannot see it.
I do remember that when it was working originally I was instructed to set my sound card in Rasberry settings to Hifi Berry – and that worked for a while. I think it was probably when the list of soundcards in the pull down box in Rasberry settings was extended that it all went wrong and stopped working for me.
