Hifiberry dac+adc

Wed Jun 05, 2019 1:00 pm

I installed the Hifiberry dac+adc. It works fine with icecast/darkice for streaming audio coming from an analog source (My stereo system). But in the Rasbian GUI the device only shows as a playback device. It does not show as a capture device. Rasbian GUI sound programs such as Audacity cannot record from it. If I plug a usb adc into the Raspberry it works fine, but I bought the Hifiberry to have higher quality. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Yes I installed the custom kernel which is what made it work with darkice. I've contacted Hifiberry and they said they don't know what the problem is.

I figured it out. I had Darkice starting automatically on boot. It took over the soundcard stopping other uses. Stopping Darkice freed up the card for other uses.
