Re: Aplay issues

I just looked at your changes again, and I am not sure I understand what is happening.

Might you have made any changes to /etc/modprobe,d/alsa-base.conf?

Re: VOIP

You do not need 512 MB for VOIP..

I have been using Twinkle and a Logitech USB headset for VOIP on my R_pi (256 MB) with quite acceptable results.

Re: Is Anyone Using RadioTray? (Solved)

The plot thickens! Bizarre.

I switched the output from a USB headset to the 3.5 mm analog jack and Radiotray works!!!

I have no idea why, because the USB headset works in a variety of other situations...Radiotray seems hardwired to the analog output.

Thanks for your help, troombatzia.

Re: How to disable integrated sound card?

Here is the /etc/asound.conf that I tried to link to above:

Code: Select all

pcm.mmap0 {

    }
}

pcm.!default {

This config file works for me whether I am using external USB audio or the built-in bcm2835 analog audio.

Re: How to disable integrated sound card?

I assume you are using Raspbian. Without the USB card plugged in, boot your system, and at the command line type "aplay -l", and you should see "Card 0 :ALSA [bcm2835 ALSA] device 0 etc".. Now plug in the USB sound card, and re-type "aplay -l". You will probably see in addition your USB soundcard li...

I think I may have stumbled onto a solution...at least it seems to have been working for 2-3 days. Go to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, and comment out the line "options snd-usb-audio index=-2". This line seems to set a lower loading priority for module snd-usb-audio than snd-bcm2835. Since snd-bcm...
