Playback counter

What’s the purpose of the playback counter? The “clock” advances forward, but the numbers remain at zero. Is this normal?

should be showing the played time of the song.
which file types are you playing?

It doesn’t seem to matter what I play. But then again, there is also either no sound, or very distorted sound. I am still experimenting with the HifiBerry for the Pi B+, so far without success.
I think I’ll wait until this DAC is officially supported.

I think the counter remains to zero because Volumio is not playing music. It can occurs for differents reasons, but I your case seems due to a bad config (driver ?)
