I have tried to disable the Front Panel Audio in the BIOS, but it does not disable Audio "completely"

I tried, but Daphile will still load the Intel sound card driver.

I am sorry but that section contains lots of incorrect information.


As of Intel HDA - just pick the soundcard you want to use in daphile config (I assume it offers such basic functionality). Having Intel HDA driver loaded does not mean it must be used for playback.

Can you specify which of the information that is incorrect and why?

I have a DAC (USB) connected directly to my motherboard (PC), so no need to load unnecessary driver(s)

The whole section on linux audio, alsa, pulseaudio, Intel HDA, USB Audio.

Audio drivers (as well as other types) are loaded automatically and unused drivers do not consume any CPU and load the system. It makes no difference if drivers for other soundcards present in the system are loaded. Of course disabling other devices will not hurt, but if disabling is not possible, no problem, it is just a mental issue of feeling better.

Default Daphile and WDMyCloud network settings

For those who desired to use the low cost WDMyCloud as music server but canít manage to get it run for Daphile, attach is a screen shot showing an example of successful network settings to share.

Thanks for the input kind reminder. In accordance with the provided link, it seems this security issue can be fixed by updating WDMyCloud to the latest firmware.

Thanks Triplefun but it didn't let me install anything. I did a reset of all settings to the latest firmware default and radios are back and all works
