    Hi,

    I’ve just baught a Hifiberry DAC+DSP to be able to listen to the TV sound on my max2play multiroom player.

    I’ve got one raspberry pi 4 with DAC+DSP which read optical signal next to my TV. Let’s name it „TV“.
    I’ve got one raspberry pi 4 with a AMP2 which play the music on passive speakers. Let’s name it „Living Room“
    I’ve got a raspberry pi 3 with a 7″ touch screen with jivelite to manage music (start stop, choose source, change volume, …). Let’s name it „TouchScreen“

    All my raspberry pi have max2play installed. LMS 8.2.0 is installed on the „TV“ raspberry pi. I’v also checked that WaveInPlugin (v1.04) is activated. „Pause button stops playing PC audio“ is checked.

    I’ve add a Bookmark in LMS on URL“wavin:0″ nammed „Digital input“ .

    I’ve set the TV to output audio on optical out.

    When I try to play wavin:0 from jivelite on „Touchscreen“ I’ve got an error „Problem : impossible to open file : <Digital input>“

    I’ve chosen „Hifi Berry DAC (PI A/B)“ in max2play for „TV“ raspberry

    What should I do in order to be able to play digital input from the „TV“ raspberry pi’dsp on the LivingRoom raspberry pi’s speakers ?

    Thank you for any help!

    Hi Jack,

    Our drivers do not support the input from the DAC DSP. For this you would have to manually install the appropriate drivers and create a DSP profile. A simpler way with Max2Play would be the HiFiBerry DAC+ ADC. The analog input from the ADC is supported by us and can be used with the Wave Input plugin of the Squeezebox Server.

    More information can be found on the HiFiBerry page: https://www.hifiberry.com/docs/data-sheets/datasheet-dac-dsp/
