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!
