No sound at startup

Post by Lyonel » Fri Dec 09, 2016 7:13 pm

Hello,

I currently use the audio Injector card on my Raspberry with Liquidsoap to stream an audio stream to an Icecast server.

Liquidsoap starts at the start but I have no sound. I have to re-run the script:

Code: Select all

$ alsactl --file /usr/share/doc/audioInjector/asound.state.RCA.thru.test restore
to get sound on my stream.

How to make everything run every time you reboot?

What happens if you run :
alsactl store

Does it reboot using the stored settings ?

Not sure ('cause I am not in front of my desk now) but it may have to be run as super user :
sudo alsactl store

Not sure why your system is behaving differently to the norm.
One suggestions is to edit .config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
Add : @alsactl --file /usr/share/doc/audioInjector/asound.state.RCA.thru.test restore
to the file and test it works, should apply that command for you each time you restart.

OK - hmmm ...
It is possible something is resetting your mixer after startup ... the autostart script is meant to run the alsactl restore command at boot time. One would assume that it has been run and has setup the mixer into the correct state. Is it possible that another process is starting after the autostart script and messing with the mixer ?
Have you installed any audio apps which may be doing this ?
