Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

You need to create ctl.!default block in asoundrc too, since the log tells that it fails to open the mixer controls.

Also I may be wrong about referencing the card in forked-daapd, you should check its manuals too.

 

I read below link under software mixing

https://www.alsa-project.org/main/index.php/Asoundrc#dmix

 

I follow .asoundrc overthere and aplay running with default device

 

unfortunately forked-daapd has very limited reference for the card

Please try

card = "default"

in forked-daapd

 

/var/log/forked-daapd.log

FYI, sound output is OK by testing "aplay -f cd -D default test.wav"

I have no idea too. Please try to experiment, maybe comment out this line, use something like "default" or "dmix".

 

try mixer = "dmix" or mixer = "default", not working

forked-daapd has very poor documentation regarding sound output setting

now to find correct setting, it's like trying to find needle in the desert :(

I think the developer (E.Jurgensen) might be willing to help. So I would suggest to ask him directly in this thread:

https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=49928

 

I know this is a Raspberry-Pi Forum, but regarding sound-card configuration there should be no difference. Maybe he has an idea, or another user has a similar setup to yours. If you can solve your problem it would be nice to post the solution here as well.

 

Best wishes, Bernie_O
