    I have just enabled Allo Piano 2.1 Dual Mode(Dual-Mono) and have noticed that Master (now my left channel) and Subwoofer (now my right channel) volumes are not linked. I am running 2.44 (with http://shop.max2play.com/media/downloadable/currentversion/allo.tar) and have aslo tried the beta (with http://shop.max2play.com/media/downloadable/beta/allo.tar)

    Is there some magic setting to get these linked or have I missed something obvious ?

    This is what my plugins for Allo look like …

    Hi mattzee,

    Thanks for sharing your logs right away and being detailed in your issue.

    I contacted Allo on the issue and this was the response:

    Currently with squeezelite, no solution. We are implementing Master volume which will change both DAC volumes. will be available in few days

    2. August 2017 at 9:26 #30300

    Thanks Heiner.

    Hi mattzee,

    Synchronised Master Volume (Speaker & Subwoofer) is now possible.

    To make it work, please follow these steps:
    – Beta-Update Max2Play under Settings/Reboot
    – Do a Kernel Upgrade in the Raspberry Settings menu (button at the bottom of the page)
    – The Kernel should now be Kernel 4.9.41 (you can check in Settings/Reboot in the Debug Info)
    – The beta updated Allo Plugin menu now has a “Master” element to adjust the volume
    – If you want to connect it to Squeezelite, you have to replace the -V Digital with -V Master in the commando line options of Squeezelite

    9. August 2017 at 22:19 #30530

    Hi Heiner

    Just a quick update for you …

    – Beta-Update Max2Play under Settings/Reboot
    Done

    – Do a Kernel Upgrade in the Raspberry Settings menu (button at the bottom of the page)

    Kernel Update started

    Custom parameter Kernel removed
    UPDATE ENDED - CHECK ABOVE LOG FOR ERRORS

    – The Kernel should now be Kernel 4.9.41 (you can check in Settings/Reboot in the Debug Info)
    Yes, was
    Linux max2play2 4.9.40-v7+ #1022 SMP Sun Jul 30 11:16:10 BST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux

    now have
    Linux max2play2 4.9.41-v7+ #1023 SMP Tue Aug 8 16:00:15 BST 2017 armv7l GNU/Linux

    – The beta updated Allo Plugin menu now has a “Master” element to adjust the volume
    Confirmed, looks ok .

    – If you want to connect it to Squeezelite, you have to replace the -V Digital with -V Master in the commando line options of Squeezelite
    Done.
    Am now using this for squeeze lite
    -C 10 -o hw:CARD=PianoDACPlus -V Master -a 80:4:: -R -u vLE:::28 -r 176400,192000 -D 80 -f /var/log/squeezeboxserver/squeezelite.log -d all=debug

    And this for shairport
    -t hardware -m hw:CARD=PianoDACPlus -c Master

    alsamixer now shows the master
