I have used pianobar for Pandora for quite some time without issues. However, at some point after recent updates, it's fallen silent. I use the analog output jack and get no sound now. Only a "click" when I start a music stream.

Things like omxplayer still work perfectly.

When I start a Pandora stream with pianobar, I get the message:
ALSA lib pcm.c:2217:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM cards.pcm.front

Any clues as to how I fix this? Streaming Pandora is the primary function for my RPi, and now I can't do it. Thanks in advance. Neall

SOLVED -- Well, I guess the "Unknown PCM cards.pcm.front" error was always there, because that wasn't the problem.

All I had to do was use 'alsamixer' and unmute the darned thing and turn up the volume there.
