No sound on Raspbian Stretch Lite

Post by colinbrogan » Fri Dec 21, 2018 2:38 pm

Ok, I haven't been able to hear any output or input from this since I've installed it. The bottom of

Code: Select all

/boot/config.txt
looks like this:

Code: Select all

# Enable audio (loads snd_bcm2835)
# dtparam=audio=on

# audioinjector device tree overlay file
dtoverlay=audioinjector-wm8731-audio

Code: Select all

aplay -l
gives me this:

Code: Select all

card 0: audioinjectorpi [audioinjector-pi-soundcard], device 0: AudioInjector audio wm8731-hifi-0 []
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
I can also boot up jack without anything protesting like so

Code: Select all

jackd -P75 -dalsa 0 -r44100 -p1024 -n3 &
. Which outputs this:

However, all sound tests I've tried seem to give no output. I've tried running the test script on the github page, but I am getting this output (Maybe because I am in Stretch Lite)?

My bad. I am using the audio injector with the DI box. Nothing was wrong with the card, I was just routing things incorrectly through the DI box
