Wolfson Audio card with Volumio

Postby cwoehlrich » Thu Oct 03 2019 16:51

Hello,
I would be very happy for some help on that topic cause I am quite new here and run into problems.
I run an Raspbi 2B and plugged the Wolfson card on top.

- Installed volumio-2.619-2019-09-24-pi.img
- Ran sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get install vim to get an editor
- Ran Steps 1-5
- After reboot I got the welcome dialog where I can select the Soundcard.
- Volumio reboots
- I insert an USB-Stick with some music, can select music and press Play

I get: Error
Failed to open "alsa" [alsa]; Failed to open ALSA device "hw 1,0": No such file ore directory.

I have no idea what went wrong and would appreciate your help to get the soundcard run.

If you are following my instructions from page 24, then just remove the # from the dtparam line in config.txt.

Current versions of Volumio expect the sound card to be hw 1 i.e. the 2nd hardware for sound, so the onboard sound is hw 0 and so should not be commented out as required for previous versions.
