I am trying to set up Volumio to output sound from my Raspberry Pi over HDMI to my speakers, but had no success so far.
This is what my setup looks like:
- Volumio 1.55 is working fine on my Raspberry Pi Modell B Revision 2.0
- Raspberry is connected to speakers with built-in amplifier (Philips Fidelio E2), either by headphone jack, USB sound card or HDMI
- sound over Raspberry’s headphone jack works fine (but poor sound quality)
- sound over USB sound card attached to Raspberry works fine (sound quality only slightly better)
-> But: no sound using HDMI. According to my speakers manual, the speakers LED indicate: “Blinks continuously when no audio from the selected HDMI ARC source is detected, or when an unsupported audio format is detected”
I tried changing output permanently to HDMI with “sudo amixer cset numid=3 2”, but there’s still no sound audible using HDMI.
Are there any further settings or options I might try?
