I'm having trouble with audio playing through 3.5mm jack. Audio is playing fine through HDMI, but when 3.5mm jack is selected using all 3 options (i.e. - terminal command, configuration tool or by right clicking the volume icon) the following happens. 1. no sound at headphones. 2. green tick next to analog is displayed when right clicking the volume icon. 3. volume control drops to 0% 4. when volume control is increased the audio again plays only through HDMI.
My project is setting up my rpi 3B + as a Bluetooth audio receiver and forwarding this audio to RCAs through HiFi Berry DAC+ Pro.
As there is tonnes of articles on how to do this, most of them are outdated and extremely complex, I'm having to really study each step. If I do everything at once nothing works.
So far I managed to successfully configure the Bluetooth to connect to my phone and I'm able to stream audio from any application on my phone (iPhone) to the rpi, but sound is only available through HDMI.
I got to where I am by following the following steps:
#sudo apt-get update. #sudo apt-get upgrade. #sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth bluez-tools. #sudo init 6. #sudo gpasswd -a pi pulse #sudo gpasswd -a pi lp #sudo gpasswd -a pulse lp #sudo gpasswd -a pi audio #sudo gpasswd -a pulse audio #sudo sh -c "echo 'extra-arguments = --exit-idle-time=-1 --log-target=syslog' >> /etc/pulse/client.conf" #sudo hciconfig hci0 up #sudo hciconfig hci0 class 0x200420 #sudo init 6 #sudo bluetoothctl #agent KeyboardOnly #default-agent #scan on #pair xx:xx:xx:... #trust xx:xx:xx:... #exit
I have now even disconnected the HiFi berry DAC as I would like to get the no sound at 3.5mm jack resolved first.
Any help in the right direction is highly appreciated.
