Octo not showing up on booting

Hey there,

quite often, the Octo does not load correctly and I need to do the "sed -i 's/\=volumealsa/\=REMOVEvolumealsa/' ~pi/.config/lxpanel/LXDE-pi/panels/panel" command and reboot the pi.

Any idea how to prevent this from happening ?

Thanks

Have you checked the ~pi/.config/lxpanel/LXDE-pi/panels/panel to see that it is necessary ?
Before you run the command, does is say volumealsa inside that file or REMOVEvolumealsa ?

thanks
Matt

I hadn't checked that file .
It says : type=REMOVEvolumealsabt

I've change d the line
type=REMOVEvolumealsabt
to
type=REMOVEvolumealsa
but it doesn't change anything.

/boot/config.txt is fine : audioinjector-addons overlay is in use and the dtapram=audio=on is disabled.

It worked fine the first time I did the whole procedure, but now it doesn't, even if I redo it all (Before you setup the octo and low-level setup commands)

dmesg | grep "audio" gives
[ 5.681450] audioinjector-octo soc:sound: ASoC: CODEC DAI cs42448 not registered - will retry
[ 5.681469] audioinjector-octo soc:sound: snd_soc_register_card failed (-517)

Update : sometimes it does wotk when redoing all the steps.

Perhaps we should talk privately about this ?

Hello, I'm having this same error, and my card will not be recognized. Do you think you can post the solution to this?

I am not sure why this problem would surface.
Can you please tell me, do you have anything external plugged into the board ?

What is the symptom of the card not starting ?

If you do the following is the problem fixed ?

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe -r snd_soc_audioinjector_octo_soundcard
sudo modprobe -r snd_soc_cs42xx8_i2c
sudo modprobe -r snd_soc_cs42xx8
sudo modprobe snd_soc_cs42xx8
sudo modprobe snd_soc_cs42xx8_i2c
sudo modprobe snd_soc_audioinjector_octo_soundcard
thanks
Matt

Hi,

I recently picked up the octo and see the error mentioned above intermittently (ASoC... -517).

The only things I have attached to the raspberry pi (3 model B) are power, hdmi, usb keyboard and mouse (plus the octo of course.)

When I ran your "sudo mod probe" statements below, the octo was seen.

Regards,
Kevin
