    Hi dear M2P community,
    I’m using a Rpi Zero with a Hifiberry mini Amp.
    Fresh install of the latest M2P version.
    YMPD as Player.
    When trying to change the volume, the error “problems setting volume” occurrs.
    I found several posts to this topic in this forum but none solved the problem.

    Settings in M2P and mpd.conf say:
    Soundcard: default – snd_rpi_hifiberry_dac
    Aufioformat: 192000:24:2
    Mixer device: hw:1
    Mixer: Digital (I also tried Software)

    alsamixer says: “This device has no mixer” – sounds a little disturbing for me.

    How can I solve the issue?

    Many thanks and best regards
    Muhackl

    Hi,
    I contacted Hifiberry support.
    To get this to work, you have to add/change the following to/in the /etc/mpd.conf

    audio_output {
    type “alsa”
    name “sysdefault:CARD=sndrpihifiberry”
    mixer_type “software”
    }

    As the Hifiberry Mini Amp does not support either Digital or Hardware (or Master) volume control via ALSA.
    Regards
