Am new to the forum so sorry in advance for any ignorant questions.
I’m using an Audiolab 8200CD DAC with S/PDIF inputs from the TV and BDP while the pi-B+ is connected via USB. As with notholdsworthy says, powering off loses handshake - the DAC can still “see” the pi (Audiolab displays “USB Link”) but no further data (i.e. sample rate) and play is not possible from the GUI. I haven’t tried switching between SPDIF and USB inputs on the DAC but I’m guessing this will create the same problem. Rebooting the pi solves this.
So thanks to Michelangelo for a possible fix - the problem is I am a total newbie to the world of the pi and have no idea about Linux or command programming… so while I am keen to implement the fix (and donate ) I am struggling to get going.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to an idiot’s guide?
Thanks BTW for a truly amazing project!
