I try to install Pimoroni pivumeter (with Scroll pHat HD) on OSMC.
The setup of the Scroll pHat HD is ok, I can make it work with the exemple scripts.
But when I install pivumeter and I reboot, OSMC gives me the sad smiley. If I remove the .asoundrc file created by the pivumeter installer, OSMC is booting.
I Use a HifiBerry Dac Plus Pro
Here is the .asoundrc:
You need to post the logs
Don’t know much about this, but try asking Pimoroni and pointing them to this thread.
They’re very helpful chaps and a few of them use OSMC regularly. I’m sure they can help.
Logs will also help.
I wonder if kodi is getting confused about which Alsa sound card to use ?
I just installed pivumeter on an osmc Pi without a dac and osmc still works.
I’ll add a dac and report back cos I’m interested in getting this working with hyperionD
I dug out my old pi1 with a cheap Ebay 5102 dac.
I had to build wiringpi from source and then installed pivumeter.
Copied the sample asound.conf to /etc and rebooted.
Osmc still works fine
did you install wiringpi ? It’s a pre requisite but apt-get couldn’t find it so I built it from source.
Note, I don’t have any supported hardware so I don’t know if the vumeter actually works !
Thanks for your answers.
WiringPi is installed.
I had a look at the log. The issue was with i2c. I enabled i2c and OSMC booted ok. But the pivumeter didn’t worked.
I went to OSMC settings, system, audio to look at the sound card used. There wasn’t the ALSA: Default (snd_rpi_hifiberry_dacplus Analog) anymore. Only HDMI and analog.
If I delet .asoundrc and reboot, I can find the ALSA device.
I have to investigate with the Alsa conf…
Someone asked about this on Twitter and I put them in Pimoroni’s direction, but we haven’t heard anything from them just yet.
