I’ve just assembled a music player to replace my Squeezebox duet, comprising of a Raspberry Pi Model 2 B+, with a Pifi digi+ v1.0 HAT (Hifiberry Digi+ clone).
I initially tried Runeaudio, which was ok (and software volume working ok). I then went on to Volumio 2, which seems to me to be an all round better proposition, with a far more attractive GUI. The problem is, I can’t get the Software Volume controller to work, which is a show-stopper for me (since the Amp is a bit awkward to get to).
I’ve trawled a lot of forum posts, articles etc and tried various approaches, modifying mpd.conf & asound.conf, all to no avail. The volume remains the same whether the software volume dial is ‘unlocked’, or not.
Software Volume control seems to be problematic, from my research. Does it not work for the Hifiberry Digi+, or is there a magic incantation, I can use?
