    Anyone have this working? I can see the mp3 files from Home Assistant/TTS playing in my LMS browser but I can’t hear the files. Volume is set at max. I tried playing the files in my chrome browser and they work perfectly but no sound when I send the files straight from HASS. Thanks

    Hi Cyn,

    Sorry about the late reply.

    Does a random radio stream or your music play okay? If not, please check your output device selection in the advanced options of Squeezelite.

    Yes, everything plays great from MyMusic and Tidal. From all appearances you would think GoogleTTS is also working…LMS shows the text that I sent over from the raspberry Pi & I see the countdown timer working but I just don’t hear anything. I even copied the file from the pi and put it in MyMusic. I use a USB DAC (Schiit BiFrost) and I am beginning to think there’s a problem decoding the file?

    Any thing you can suggest would be apprciated.

    Finally making progress! I changed audio output from Front, CARD=Device, DEV=0 to just default & it now works. It keeps playing in an unending loop but at least for now I hear the googleTTS message. I also had success on sysdefault, hw & plughw. Is there a guide explaining these options and which one I am suppose to be using? Not clear how to set this up for best stereo performance.
    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Cyn,

    Our default setting is sydefault which is also what we would recommend for stereo performance.
