I have now recieved my new m2p bundle – Audiophonics I-Sabre V3 DAC Bundle with Raspberry Pi and Max2Play
Everything up and running but I cannot get audio output to my amp via the sound card. I can only get sound via HDMI to my TV.
On the Audiophonics page of the wab interface the sound card is appearing correctly. I have selected the ‘Advanced’ i.e. multi room config as I use LMS with multiple players.
However on the Audioplayer tab on the interface I see no reference to my soundcard, so I cannot set it up to output as required. All I see is a load of options in the audio output section under Squeezelight advanced options, but non of these make any sense to me and none seem to refer to my sound card, just various ALSA and hifiberry options.
Sorry if I am being rather thick – but how do I progress and get this working?1. November 2017 at 11:26 #32228
Sorry about the confusion. I know it seems counter-intuitive, but the right output device for your Sabre is sysdefault_hifiberry…
Also, check the command line options and if there’s a “hw:0” in there, make sure to deactivate build-in audio in the Raspberry Settings.9. November 2017 at 18:53 #32394
I am still having problems with this. With the Disable Build-In-Audio box unchecked I get Kodi Audio output options of HDMI, Analogue, both of these and ALSA: Default (bcm2835 ALSA ……
If I check the Disable Build-In-Audio box and reboot the ALSA option disappears but no hifiberry option appears, just the HDMI and analogue options.
It may be relevant that Squeezelite is not deactivated when I start KODI. I can play music on my amp from Sqeezelight at the same time as KODI audio is on my TV via HDMI ??

In this case, the Squeezelite player hogs the output. Usually, Squeezelite should shut down automatically when you start Kodi, allowing the output to be freed up. Please try removing the autostart from Squeezelite, rebooting and starting Kodi.11. November 2017 at 8:22 #32414
To help me set up Kodi with add-ons, network shares, favorites etc. I had attached a mouse to my Pi. I was also using the mouse to start Kodi from the max2play desktop. Doing it this way caused Squeezelite and Kodi to run concurrently, with the result that I had the problems reported above.
When I started Kodi from the m2p gui, squeezelite stopped and the hifiberry appeared in my Kodi audio output options, and everything worked as it should do.
