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
