Hi.

Seeing as you have purchased a Commercial product based on the pi, you should really be ashing the makers of the product for support.

They have there own support and forum.

But i am using a raspberry pi in my pi-top, because 'Ceed Universe' killed the SD card.

Bit lost here, you say you are using a raspberry pi in your pi-top, what did you have in it before ? I thought it was designed the raspberry pi ?

By following the link above, I found out there seems to be a problem with the pi-top and sound, so If I can find this (and a possible fix), why can't you ?

Do you actually mean you are running Raspbian Stretch with Desktop OS ?

Its about the SD card
a pi-top has a different pre-programmed SD card than a SD card for a raspberry pi

and no, i wasn't using desktop. its a python coded version of creed universe

Ditch that "pre-programmed" microSD card, get a new one, about 16G to 32G, Class 10 or A1, and flash the latest raspbian stretch with desktop using Etcher.

once installation is all complete, then install the drivers for the sound card (I take it you're using a Pi-Top speaker module). Battery monitor is already included in the latest raspbian image, you just have to enable it at the panel.

if you are not using the Pi-Top speaker module and using the audio jack to output audio to a set of USB speakers, then just connect the speaker plug to to the audio jack. Make sure you select "Analog" as the audio output device.

I have a Pi-Top v1 with a battery in "coma" state, but that didnt deter me from still using the Pi-Top as always plugged in RPi-LapTop.
( RPi model used in Pi-Top is Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, in USB native boot)

i found out why the sound was horrible

its with the pitop hub(2.0) the sound plugin is DESTROYED
i think someone (probably my sister :lol: ) pulled the chord out way to hard and/or to fast :(




i've been using the SD card you suggested since "creed" killed the pi
