Dear fellow audio enthusiast, Today I published a first draft of mpd-monitor, a minimal load and realtime monitor of an audiostream as handled by mpd. A screencast says it all: Details and documentation are available at the gitlab repository: https://gitlab.com/ronalde/mpd-monitor/. When you experience bugs or issues, which will be the case, please submit those in the gitlab project. I would like to hear your thoughts. Happy listening and monitoring, Ronald
USBridge+DietPi: DAC issue: Soekris 1101 USB DAC
ursdiego posted a topic in Allo's TRANSPORT SupportHi! 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 a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and I installed PiCorePlayer in order to try out the compatibility of my DAC. It worked without problem. Given that I got it to work with a RPi, I thought I could buy a USBridge with no risk. Even more so, as the DAC is natively supportet by Linux according to the manufacturor. Some additional information: The power should not be the problem, as I connect the DAC through a device that cuts the USB power supply from USBridge and adds power from a clean (linear) source. If I connect the DAC directly, it does not power up (I suppose, USBridge does not deliver enough power). This setup works flawlessly with the Raspberry Pi 3 B+ and PiCorePlayer pCP4.1.0. While it boots, the 44khz-led switches off on the DAC. This is not a normal behaviour. Normaly, it remains on normally, or it switches to another value. This might indicate some issue on the communication between DAC und USBridge. Any possible solution??? And: I suppose that PiCorePlayer would not work properly on a USBridge, supporting the clean USB-port? Or would it? If yes, this would possibly resolve the issue for me. And if yes, how to... I am not familiar with eMMC - flashing... If it helps if I provide Log-Files or similar, please let me know how to get them, I am a complete newbie (I manage to SSH into DietPi with putty, but I have no idea where and how to find the log-files). THANKS INDEED in advance! Urs
Dear music lovers, I am having my Allo USBridge connected with LAN Ethernet cable to my network and via usb to my Mytek Brooklyn DAC. I manage my USBridge with dietpi v6.28.0 through PuTTY SSH. I see the usbridge upnp/dlna renederer as "dietpi" in the mconnect android app, however I have no sound. I read in this forum that some times the alsamixer set to mute state for the USB DAC. When I try to manage this with "alsamixer -c-1" I get: "cannot load mixer controls: Broken pipe". Please see the results of commands lsusb, aplay -1, ..etc. attached. Can an anyone guide me through a solution. (I am not very knowledgable with Dietpi) Thanks in advance, Olaf
