    Hello Everyone,

    Max2Play in overall works fine, great job and please keep it updated!

    My problem is very simple, but annoying. It wasn’t like this from the beginning… on HiFiBerry plugin page my volume slider is set to 0, no matter what I do. It doesn’t reflect real volume nor it has any impact on it.

    Please take a look at this screenshot:

    Of course I can modify volume with shell commands, but perhaps there’s a simple solution that I don’t see? Hint: reinstall from scratch didn’t change a thing.

    Hi TroLoo,

    Thank you for the kind words, first of all.

    Please share the command line options and output device that is selected in your Audio Player menu. Those can tell us what might be wrong with the setup. You might have to add an “hw” to the options or select a different output.

    Hi TroLoo,

    If not selected already, please select the Output device “sysdefault:CARD=sndrpihifiberry – snd_rpi_hifiberry_amp, – Default Audio Device” in Squeezelite.

    Please also check out our Wiki on optimizing Squeezelite to find out the command line options which should fix this issue: https://www.max2play.com/en/wiki/optimizing-squeezelites-volume-control/

    With your HiFiBerry Amp+ it should be: -o hw:0 -V Master
