  1. Update: I flashed an older version to an sd card, I believe it was v6.18 I booted with the flash card inside. USBridge worked as before - sound OK. Old version number was shown on settings page of Allo. When I switched the entire unit on the next time, I checked, and version 6.25.3 was shown. I believe, DietPi made an automatic update to the system on the SD-card. However, it continued to work OK. I removed the SD-Card and booted from the internal memory (emmc). Boot was OK, but sound did not work, symptoms as described in my previous post. So it seems, that the
  2. Hi I don't get any sound after my usbridge updated to dietpi version 6.25.3. I'm not sure which was the previous version. My USB 2 - DAC does not react at all. An observation: I use squeezelite. Squeezelite stays now always enabled, even if the DAC is powered down. Before the update, Squeezelite was always disabled, when the USB-DAC was not connected and turned on. Thanks for your help!
  3. Bumping... The wish is not so exotic though: Max2Play can do it: https://www.max2play.com/en/portfolio/plugin-bluetooth-2/ So why not USBridge? Any solution? Cheers!
  4. Hi! I look for a solution to get the PC Sound Output (e. g. the output of "Stereo Mix" or via "Virtual audio cable" or the free alternative "VBCABLE") to my DAC (and speakers) connected to USBridge, with as little time lag as possible. In particular, I want to play movies, bring the image to a (wireless) projector/beamer, and the sound to the speakers over USBridge and the network. It looks like HQPlayer from Signalist might work. But this piece of software has a prohibitively too high price for me. I would like to play the content on some normal player like
  5. Hi! Thanks, I had found this in the meantime, too. It works now, but I experience disconnects. As I do not use Ethernet anymore, I have no choice than to cold power off my USBridge and reboot it each time to get Wifi to work again. It happens randomly, often after less than 10 minutes after boot. I found this workaround made by a DietPi-Creator: https://community.roonlabs.com/t/wifi-disappears-after-a-day/25850/20 This is a script, and it works works by restarting WiFi after a disconnect. However, music stops for a couple of seconds, and obviously this
  6. Hi there It worked, and I first thought (relieved and ashamed at the same time) that it was a false alarm. Everything worked well, Squeezelite set to pcm 32bit, the DAC set to USB 2.0 and Allo/Dietpi set to USB Dac (for USB 2.0). However, it was not a false alarm: I switched off everything, and the next day I powered everything on, and there was again no sound. The DAC diesplay reacted when I played files with different khz-ratings, so there was visibly communicaiton between DAC and USBridge. However, no sound... After long experimenting, I found out the routine that seems to
  7. Hi there. I have a USBridge. I wonder whether it would be possible that the USBRidge acts as a Bluetooth audio RECEIVER and outputs to the (clean) USB Port??? Eventually with a USB-Dongle, and if yes, which one might work for this? Thanks for any help!
  8. Hi there! I just got my Allo USB Wifi Dongle. It should be "Plug in, and start surfing! Includes easy to setup driver." Well, as a spoiled windows user, I thought it would be litterally "plug and play". However, the manual ist called "Quick_Start_Guide_for_Driver_Compilation_and_Installation" and is not at all easy for me... Can somebody help me step by step...? I don't have a screen on the USBridge, I just operate it by the allo web interface or by SSH over Putty... THANKS!
  9. Thanks, I'll try, true, i saw the PM too late. However, LMS refuses to play tracks. It recognizes DietPi as a player, opens playlists, but when selecting to play, it switches immediatly to paused without playing. I believe this is, because somehow squeezlite "realizes" that there is a playback-issue due to compatibility/configuration problems with the DAC. However, I will see asap if hw_params gives a useful feedback, even if no track is playing. Best regards
  10. Hi! I changed squeezelite settings to 32 bit / u32be. Still no sound, and the DAC still refuses to indicate the sample rate, meaning (I believe) a failure in communication between DAC and transport. Attached is the SSH output for cat /proc/asound/card1/stream0, aplay -l and squeezelite -l. Thanks for your help! 190409_SSH_output_for_32_u32be.txt
  11. Thank you indeed for this information, @ALLOsupport, I will try this later today if I get a chance, and I will post the results. What I see is that ssh shows also "Altset 2" and "S16_LE" - I tried with 16bit - setting in squeezelite with no success either. Anyway, I try again tonight if possible.
  12. Thanks for this fast reply! I will try as soon as I am back home. However, juste two questions in order to understand: 1. If I select DSD (as you suggest), is the signal then converted to DSD? Or does it remain PCM (important, I want it to be processed as native PCM if possible, not as DSD, because I suppose that this would include unnecessary conversions of the signal that I want to avoid, as my DAC is a multibit design, and all the music I have stored is PCM). 2. The specifications of my dac soekris 1101 say: *** USB Input Type B, Isolated, Full
  13. Hi! Thanks for your help. I triend 24 and 24_3, same result. Here is the outcome: First what strikes me: ssh tells me: XMOS Soekris dac1101 USB Audio 2.0 at usb-aotg_hcd.1-1.1, high speed : USB Audio Why " usb-aotg_hcd.1-1.1, high speed"??? In Allo-Web-Interface "Sound Card" is set to USB (not USB 1.1!), and Soekris is set to "USB Audio 2.0". Here is all the SSH output as set to 24_3, see txt-file attached to this message 190409_SSH_output_for_24_3.txt
  14. Hi! I got a new USBridge with DietPi, my intention is to use Squeezelite. My DAC is a Soekris 1101 USB DAC. I connect the DAC and power it on. It shows the 44khz - led while it waits for the source to connect. Then I power on USBBridge and wait until it boots up. The result is, that I don't get any sound at all: Squeezelite is "enabled" (which is a sign that somehow it recognizes that a DAC is connected, because without the DAC connected, Squeezelite stays "disabled"). However, Squeezelite refuses to play tracks. Prior to buy the USBridge, I got myself
