first of all, I love your product. A very nice way to build a controlable multiroom player. But I’ve got still some issues here.
I want a multiroom setup where the server is in the kitchen (and configurated fine already) and a another in the livingroom for music from server’s squeezebox and Kodi from itself.
Raspberry 3 B+
–> bought as a bundle from your shop
Get passive speakers to work with AMP2. Is there a way to check if Hifiberry’s AMP2 is sending sound to the output (just to make sure it’s not a problem with the speaker), because till now I couldn’t get my speaker to play a sound?
If Kodi streams to screen via HDMI I still want to hear the sound from the passive speakers.
So I assume I have to change standard output when HDMI is connected in Raspberry settings. But only standard (HDMI), jack and HDMI are available in the drop down menu.
Well, I now assume to disable raspberry’s internal on-board sound. –> If doing so, squeezelite stops working and cannot be re-started.
Do I have to change settings in the extended audioplayer menu?
I already tried several setups, always with the newest image from your homepage and with newest M2P version. Do kernel and package updates help? I sometimes did that but often appear problems when terminal is updating Apache2.
I already got up a working multiroom setup when choosing ’none‘ as Raspberry’s soundcard and put earphones in the RP’s jack plug. That works fine.
But I want to use AMP2’s passive speaker outputs.
Any help welcome!!
Thanks a lot!27. September 2019 at 10:03 #47168
For Kodi you need to deactivate the build-in audio in Raspberry Settings and reboot to make the AMP2 the first slot. Then you need to make sure to have „hw:0“ in the command line options of Squeezelite to have it also recognize that it’s now in the first slot.27. September 2019 at 22:23 #47190
Yepp, that solved the problem. did a fresh install and followed your steps.
