I just bought a raspberry pi 3b and the Kuman PIFI Digital DAC+ HIFI DAC Audio Sound Card Module I2S interface for Raspberry pi 3 2 Model B B+ SC08.

When I plugged it in to my raspberry pi and hooked it up to my amp and speakers, no sound came through. I did further research and found that there were 2 sound cards occupying card 1, with the same id, but different names.

So I have come to the conclusion that either my sound card won't register, or it has put itself onto card 1. If it has put itself on card 1, then I am not sure how to enable it, or move it to another card without also doing the same to the built in one, due to them having the same id.

All the information i have about the sound cards came from using cat /proc/asound/card0/pcm(0 or 1)p/info which was the following:

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/info

card: 0
device: 0
subdevice: 0
stream: PLAYBACK
id: bcm2835 ALSA
name: bcm2835 ALSA
subname: subdevice #0
class: 0
subclass: 0
subdevices_count: 8
subdevices_avail: 8

pi@raspberrypi:~ $ cat /proc/asound/card0/pcm1p/info

card: 0
device: 1
subdevice: 0
stream: PLAYBACK
id: bcm2835 ALSA
name: bcm2835 IEC958/HDMI
subname: subdevice #0
class: 0
subclass: 0
subdevices_count: 1
subdevices_avail: 1

I looked around on stack exchange, but could only find people referring to USB sound cards. I don't know how to use any of this code to help.

I am new to using the raspberry pi, so i'm not sure if I can offer much more information. Thank you!

  • Sound cards have to id parameters: the card number and something else(I forget right now.) You should be able to specify both in whatever program your using. – scitronboy Apr 24 '18 at 23:26
  • Hi. I am using terminal to enter all of this in, but The problem is that I don't know how to specify the sound cards by certain parameters and move them. That is what I couldn't find anywhere else on stack exchange. – Lord_of_Cheddar96 Apr 24 '18 at 23:46
  • What software/command are you using??? – scitronboy Apr 25 '18 at 1:51
  • i don't know what you mean – Lord_of_Cheddar96 May 3 '18 at 7:31
  • I mean what software or commands are you using to play the music??? depending on which software/commands you are using to play the music, setting up the card might be different. – scitronboy May 4 '18 at 18:13
