Added Input playback on MyVolumio Superstar? v2.632

To use this feature, you of course need a dedicated hardware.
It seems that the digione sig is detected also as an analog input (which it's not, as far as I know).
Will need to blacklist it in order to avoid confusion.

Is this feature dedicated only for myvolumio superstar accounts or to all paid accounts?

Let me know if something is still not clear

i confirm that USB audio input works like a charm.
I used https://www.behringer.com/Categories/Be ... 22/p/P0A31 (PCM2902)
It's hot plug and play - no reboot needed.
only one usb external audio in can be used and is shown!

I promise, with an I2S DAC the sound quality will be better.
I found this DAC boards for RCA input...

Yep, the release of Hifiberry DAC Pro ADC is the thing that gave me the idea to do it, and I must say that the results are indeed very good.
I also use this feature to listen to my turntable: I have a Pro-Ject USB phono that I connect directly via USB (results are very very good)

OK, after checking the Behringer UCA222 as USB RCA input Device i sent it to my dauhter.
She updated her volumio system to v. 2.632 and upgrade the myvolumio account from virtuoso to superstar.
She is having a RPI3B & iQaudIO device.
She is having a plugin error of "smart_inputs" Plugin and should contact the developer.
I belive this is why she can not use the USB input.
Any Help please. Thank you.

no problem anymore!
I found out that she has used the wrong connections - USB in the computer and Line in the volumio device. :)
