My setup is Raspberry Pi4 4GB
HiFiBerry DAC2 Pro (from PiHut)
Official 7" touch screen and Smartipi Touch Pro case.
I installed Volumio 2.882 today and it will not recoginise my DAC. I was quite surprised as I followed a guide online and the person said they used this exact one and it seemed to work for them. I’ve tried setting it to every HiFiBerry DAC in the option list (my exact model isn’t in the list) and restarted every time but no luck. I get no sound at all out of the DAC.
It’s strange because if I set it to not use I2S the headphone out on the pi works fine. It actually doesn’t sound that bad and has made me wonder about just using it this way instead. The interesting thing is, that if I have it in this mode there is a little green LED on the DAC itself. Still no sound out of it. However if I try and only the I2S options, the LED is off.
How do you go about getting a DAC added to the list. Does the actual DAC manufacturer need to do something to make it supported?
Has anyone managed to get this combo to work. I think I’ll just return this DAC and maybe get a different one. I thought this one was a good compromise between quality and price £45
Cheers for that.
I added that to boot\config.txt but still it doesn’t work. I tried setting it to use HiFiBerry DAC and HiFiBerry DAC Plus but still I get no sound and the little led is not on on the DAC itself. Am I missing a trick?
Also, I presume when you say add it to config.txt, it doesn’t matter is I add it to userconfig.txt instead does it? I’ve tried both and neither work but if you add it to config.txt I believe it will be overwritten with updates where as userconfig.txt is not.
that’s the last of the posts i found it working on pi3 didn’t find it for pi4
you could test it oke
you will need to update the Linux kernel to at least version 4.18.12 your above that.
so no need for update
i would try the force_eeprom_read=0 in userconfig.txt it worked on pi3
Yes I think we posted at the same time. These are the lines I added and it worked. Hopefully it will help someone else struggling with the same thing. It would be really nice if they got it added as an option in the list so it could work without needing to edit the file. It seems like quite a popular option.
Thanks so much for you help and quick responses.
Checking back in with this thread in April 2022 since editing the boot file didn’t work for me. Had to buy a different DAC, but would love to see if Volumio is resolving this issue so I can eventually buy another Pi and use it in that one.
