    My Max2play does play with the hifiberry Dac+ on my Raspberry Pi 3 card.
    But when I use Kodi it does not show up in the audio settings.
    Only the Pi’s analog option and HDMI.
    What is going wrong here???

    Hi TubeFX,

    Please diable build-in audio in the Raspberry Settings menu.

    Please also have a look at our wiki on Kodi: https://www.max2play.com/en/wiki/kodixbmc/

    Hi TubeFX,

    What options do you get after deactivating the build-in audio?

    16. August 2017 at 14:25 #30663

    Pi:HDMI and Analoque

    Kodi is playing only from the Pi: headphone out.
    Led on the Hifiberry is on though.

    Did you select your HiFiBerry card in the HiFiBerry menu or in the Raspberry Settings yet?

    16. August 2017 at 15:08 #30666

    Yes I did

    In Hifiberry settings i have Dac+ (pi 2/3)
    In Raspberry pi settings I have also Hifiberry Dac+ (pi 2/3).

    I have nothing else running besides this than Kodi and settings/reboot

    Hi TubeFX,

    Please select „none“ as sound card, reboot, select your HiFiBerry again, reboot and check again.

    This issue has always been related to deactivating the build-in audio. If you had not done a reboot after deactivation, please do so before following the instructions above.

    I am sorry to say that after those instruction stil no changes in Kodi!!
    Everything else is oké and I stop when I use Kodi, so nothing else is going .
    I also treid to install Kodi again.

    Very strange , bc the led on the Hifiberry is on and it plays wonderfull, only not in Kodi!!!

    17. August 2017 at 14:04 #30681

    Indeed very strange, this forum is full of threads with the same issue and the solve was always to disable the build-in audio.

    Please also make sure to disable Squeezelite and any other audio player to rule it out as a source of error.

    Also, could you share a screenshot of your settings page for audio output?

    18. August 2017 at 9:15 #30688

    I can but I don’t know how???
    I can make a screenshot but I cannot get it in this window here???
    No kopie/cut or paste?????

    Happy to say that it’s al working now.
    What have I done?
    I wrote a new .img from hifiberry installer.
    After boot up an M2P update and boot again.
    I have a older version of Kodi now (isengard) but it is playing music now over the Hifiberry output!!!!!

    Case closed!!!
