Odrioid C2/Cantata/MPD/HDMI - No Sound

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm new to Linux and trying to set up a music server using my Odroid C2/Armbian/Cantata/MPD/HDMI sound.

Got Armbian 5.60 (Stretch) 4.18.8 installed.

Cantata sees the small test music library I set up on the C2 and appears to play tracks as the progress bar moves.

I get no sound from the C2 connected HDMI monitor. (for initial testing only, i2s + DAC/Amp later).

I tried the same set up using the Odroid Ubuntu/Mate desktop image a few days back and it worked straight out of the box.

My suspicion is that the audio output settings in the mpd.conf are not correct (mpd 0.19.21).

For HDMI sound output, does my version of Armbian use Pulse Audio or Alsa ?

Could you give me some pointers as to what the audio output entries should be for MPD to give HDMI sound output?

I see this is a problem with the latest version of Armbian/PulseAudio for C2 not outputting audio over HDMI and is being worked on.
