Well, I've just updated to 3.8.2 and using Kali/Piano 2.1 (dual-mono) and now I'm only getting audio out of one channel, so something has gone wrong there!

Edit: switched back to stereo operation and connected to main L/R and I now have 2 channels back. Shame to not be able to take advantage of dual-mono though.

2. Player#2 = RPi2 & DAC+ Pro. No on-board wifi, and external USB wifi adapter in use. No known interferences with this hardware configuration.

Hi, Tom.

I'm on a road trip and using my phone so will be brief (or else my finger will wear out).

Have you tried running one of these RPis with the DAC removed but no change in location, enclosure, WiFi setup, power arrangement, OS, etc? If it remains accessible for up a reasonable time (in your case, more than 20 days, apparently) then it's tempting to say the culprit is indeed EMI from the DAC to the WiFi adapter.

I only say " tempting" because it is also possible to point an accusatory finger at your power supply and power cabling. If the supply is marginal then the extra load of the DAC might be enough to pull the supply voltage over the edge, so to speak. Similarly, if the cabling conductors have high enough resistance (small diameter/long length) the extra load could again pull the supply voltage down enough. Also, the more marginal the supply voltage, the more the system will be susceptible to EMI coupled to the supply line from the DAC.

Regards,
Kent

Hi,

No issues w/Dual-Mono on my end. Looking at the RCA jacks its L/mute mute/R.

There is also a test cmd in the home dir named piano.sh. It dumps out the mode setting and volume levels.

Below is with MPD set to Hardware and moOde knob at 30. If MPD set to Software volume then volume levels below would all be 0dB (100%).

pi@rp3:~ $ ./piano.sh
Dual mode: Dual-Mono
Subw mode: None
Sub xover: 60
Sub level: 70%
Main levl: 70%
Mstr levl: 70%

-Tim

I think you have to set the subwoofer volume to 100% to get sound from the other channel (Audio Configuration > Chip/Device options) and put the RCA connector on the outer right connector.

If only they could be purchased... outside of Europe and the US the shipping far exceeds the cost, which means buying 5 or so is the only economic method, but I've yet to find a vendor that will sell more than 1.

I've never understood this ridiculous policy.

Hi @r100,

No need to set Subwoofer volume when the mode = Dual-Mono or Dual-Stereo.

ah, ok, thanks for that. I was under the impression that I had to do that in certain cases while in Dual-Mono but cant remember which

I´m using Rpi3 with Allo Boss and iFi iPower. Sox Upsample to 32bit 384 khz, advanced rt-kernel, cpu-governor on demand, FiFo.

Enjoy

Hello Luki,

Danke schön.

I appreciate the feedback. I will give the new release a go as soon as i get some time.
I'm using the RT kernel (on demand) with the RR setting. I'm using an audiophonics ES9023 DAC which thankfully provides enjoyment. I'm watchfull of the CPU temps as the whole thing is in an aluminium enclosure (which i've drilled out for ventilation). Without "on demand", the CPU temperature was a consistent few degrees higher.

Thanks Tim, I changed my lirc config to the command found in /var/www/command/restart.sh

Code:
begin
prog = irex
button = KEY_POWER
config = mpc stop; systemctl stop nginx; poweroff
end
It turns off cleanly but still something is stopping autostart on a cold start.

I am wondering if the gpio pin used for the lirc receiver is being polled by something else... I seem to recall you wrote previously about rotary encoders for volume and a moode config but can't seem to find this through the forum search...perhaps I have the wrong terms....

is there anything else in moode using gpio pin 25 ? I recall something about the rotary encode being 23 and 24 and possibly the switch being 25 ?
