Tagged: Zero RPI Justboom Digi DAC pHAT
14. Mai 2020 at 14:55 #48779
I’ve just set up a RPI Zero with Max2play and a Justboom Digi pHAT.
I have two problems though so any help will be greatly appreciated.
First, the Spotify Connect plugin does not autostart on boot despite I have checked the related tick box. I have to manually start it through the Max2play server page. Strangely, when I move the sd card to a RPI 3B+ the plugin will autostart normally. Why is this happening? Any ideas?
Secondly, despite I have set the Justboom pHAT as my primary interface and have also set a -C 10 parameter to utilise both services (Spotify Connext & Squeezlite) with the same audio interfac, I haven’t figured how to set Spotify Connect’s initial volume to full. It starts around the middle and have to manually higher it from the Spotify app on my mobile phone. At the same time the Squeezlite initial volume is set to full.
What command line values should I set for the Spotify Connect to start at full volume? I tried PCM 96% or PCM 100% but don’t seem to have any luck.
Many thanks!17. Juni 2020 at 17:07 #49047
Please excuse the late reply, somehow I missed your request. I tested the autostart problem myself and it didn’t work for me either. I passed that on to our chief developer. As soon as there is a fix, I will contact you again. For the volume problem you can try the following: Enter „–initial-volume 100“ in the command line options of Spotify Connect to get the volume at 100% after starting.8. Juli 2020 at 15:51 #49267
Our developer has found the time today to work on your request. He has now added a fix to the Max2Play Beta. This fix will delay the autostart of Spotify Connect for the Pi Zero. Please do a beta update and tell us if it works. If it does, the fix will be integrated into the next Max2Play version.10. Juli 2020 at 1:31 #49276
Thank you for your work with this.
I have updated to the beta version and now both Squeezlite and Spotify Connect clients will autostart and switch one another upon request.
I have another problem though. There’s no sound on either interface. However I might be doing something wrong or missing as it’s been a while since I last set this one up and I can’t remember. I have to re-learn everything from scratch.
Is there anything in particular I should check?
I found where the problem was. The header is not secure enough and it was losing connection between the Pi and the Hat. I can confirm you can proceed with implementing this bug fix to the next official update!
The initial volume of Spotify Connect however is still low. I did put the argument into the settings, tried also an alctl store but at all times after reboot the volume will be at 50%.
Could you please let me know where the conf file of the client is located? I’m thinking to try to set the value to 100 there instead.
