Problem: No sound: Pi zero w with Hifiberry DAC+ zero
#1
Dear moOde Community,

I have some difficulties to get my system working. It seems that all my hardware is working but no sound is coming out of my DAC+. Huh
The I2S devices i tried are Hifiberry DAC, Hifiberry DAC+ and the Hifiberry DAC Zero.

I put some informations that could be helpfull:

aplay -l



Code:
pi@moode:~ $ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: sndrpihifiberry [snd_rpi_hifiberry_dac], device 0: HifiBerry DAC HiFi pcm5102a-hifi-0 []

That system info log says your volume is set to 0; try setting it to 100 and see if that helps.

To troubleshoot, first establish that a default config using the On-board audio device works.

- Turn off Bluetooth, other renderers, MPD replay gain etc.
- Set I2S device to "None"
.
.

- Reboot

Then verify that a radio station plays and that there are nor errors displayed or printed in the moode log. Note that you don't actually have to actually connect the On-board Pi RCA output jack to your audio system for this test.

So I set the config to default by following your guide from GitHub to do the setup.

After that I played the stereo test and the radio with the volume turned on, but sadly it wont give out a sound...

This log entry suggests some sort of breakage.

20190702 190014 worker: ALSA volume set to (amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Digital',0)

Just try a fresh image on your Pi with no audio board or anything else attached and with no modifications or settings changes.

This is what I get with a fresh image without anything on my pi:

Should I now shutdown and put the dac on the pi and proceed to the AP and I2S setup?

Does the included Stereo Test file play?

If it does then just follow the Setup guide.
https://github.com/moode-player/moode/bl.../setup.txt

It included the Stereo Test file and the Radio play. No errors displayed.

I then set the system with the DAC up and could also play the File and radio but no sound coming out...
