Generic ALSA output device

It seems like Volumio only lists the hw: devices. I’d like to be able to setup a device accordingly (in /etc/asound.conf):

pcm.my_device {
type plug
slave.pcm “hw:0”

and use it in Volumio. Consulting MPD, this at least seems possible (


By setting up audio_output in mpd.conf:

audio_output {
type “alsa”
name “alsa”
device “my_device”
dop “no”
always_on “yes”

it seems to work. However, it would be nice to list “my_device” in Volumio for selection :slight_smile:
