    Hello,

    i use a Raspberry 3 with Hifiberry DAC to feed my amp for my audio server purpose (LMS).

    Now i would like to use my amp for my Xiaomi Mi TV Box (video & TV live).
    The TV Box has SPDIF output. I imagine to plug an SPDIF interface into USB entry of my Rasberry.

    Question: How to get audio signal and send through the hifiberry DAC?

    Thanks

    Hi fabien,

    Max2Play and the Raspberry by themselves are not great for audio input.

    I would recommend using the box directly connected to your Amp, if it has an analogue output, or using a simple standalone DAC between the two devices.

    Hi Heiner,

    thanks for the reply.
    Unfortunatly, i cannot connect directly the box to my amp bacause of lack of input. My amp is internal connected to the Raspberry. This is one box containing amp & rasp with only USB/HDMI/Ethernet ports of the rasp are available.

    I would imagine a software solution with a usb device to get the SPDIF signal.

    Hi fabien,

    There is the wave input plugin for Squeezebox input. But this is not implemented in Max2Play and we cannot guarantee a steady solution that will work with your components.
