Hello to all,
My initial set-up with a Rasberry Pi B+ and Volumio was using the HDMI sound output from the Pi through an external DAC, and everything was working flawlessly.
I just added an hifiberry digi + add-on board, used the volumio system setting menu to declare the hiberry digi+, connected the digi+ board to the DAC with a Toslink cable, and started to listen to a few pieces from my USB hard disk. So far so good.
However, my user environment is not as perfect as before:
-I cannot operate the sound volume control, frozen at 100.
-I can listen to all the music files in the .flac and .wma formats, but no mp3 files can be accessed any longer.
I would really like to make everything work, since the sound from my amplifier through the hifiberry digi+ seems to have gained some depth and clarity (subjective feeling of course). Since I was not able to find posts related to these topics in the help forum, I am sending this message.
Is it expected that the sound volume control becomes unusable once the hifiberry digi + is set?
Have other people had the same issue with the mp3 files? Do you know of any solution to access the mp3 files again?
Thanks in advance for the time you guys will spend to answer. Volumio is a very useful and well-done tool, and I hope my questions will help make it even better for this specific configuration.
