Volumio 3 Buster Beta for X86

You may be pleased to know, that I’ve just “alpha” tested an upcoming beta/rc1 and it seams the awfully screeching sound from the 3.101 has disappeared. Automatic switch between headphone and speakers also works again. But, this is with an rt5640 codec. You and I may have to work on getting it working on your rt5651 based Intel Atom soc, your help would be appreciated

3.112 works as intended for me. Thanks for Spotify connect. Have not checked multiroom (as this feature is not for me)


Calling for Intel Atom Baytrail/ Cherrytrail Users with rt5651 and es8316 codecs. I could use your help with improving onboard audio. Codec rt5640 already works, step to rt5651 should not be a big one. To avoid going offtopic in this thread, please send me an email at: ge.koerkamp (at) volumio.org


just had a look at version Volumiobuster-3.112-2021-10-08-x86_amd64.zip

Boot via USB Stick

There is no difference to version Volumiobuster-3.101-2021-09-08-x86_amd64.zip in my test results (see Volumio 3 Buster Beta for X86 - #253 by Robert.Hecht )

Here’s the log:

When playing hi res files via HDMI the first 5-10 seconds are broken. :x:
Not tested: multi room.

Plugin: Tested installation and function of “personal radio” - ok :white_check_mark:

Thanks for a straightforward review, other feedback has also been good so far. Log will be analysed

There is a new update out, this Release Candidate 1.

We will start the next stage, volumio-3-rc1-open-beta-testing using a new, single thread for RPi, Tinkerboard and X86.
Therefore I’m closing this thread.

Note: There may still be x86-specific issues, like missing support for WiFi devices (onboard or dongles), onboard sound and DAC devices, disk devices etc.
Also, you could encounter boot issues or other problems of which you assume they are x86-related.

These issues are no longer considered beta-related and can occur in the future with new hardware or components.
Please post these in this help thread: x86-hardware-issues-wifi-dac-disks-etc
