Allo boss on kodi 17.1

Allo boss on kodi 17.1
« on: May 19, 2017, 02:02:13 AM »
Hello,

I just received my Allo boss dac. I am trying to get the dac working but I can't retrieve it in my system settings as an output device.
I am using kodi 17.1 on a raspberry pi (latest version of hardware).

I added the "allo-boss-dac-pcm512x-audio.dtbo" in the overlays folder. Then I changed the config.txt to:


################################################################################
# License keys to enable GPU hardware decoding for various codecs
# to obtain keys visit the shop at http://www.raspberrypi.com
################################################################################

# decode_MPG2=0x00000000
# decode_WVC1=0x00000000
# decode_DTS=0x00000000
# decode_DDP=0x00000000
dtoverlay=pi3-disable-bt
dtparam=i2c=on
dtoverlay=allo-boss-dac-pcm512x-audio
                                         

################################################################################
# End of default configuration
# all values below this line were inserted from config.txt.bk (your old config)
# and can be merged with the above values
################################################################################

Can someone help me out? What am I doing wrong. The green power led on the boss board is burning.

Thx

Hi ,

 Add below lines on top of dtoverlay=allo-boss-dac-pcm512x-audio line

dtparam=i2c_arm=on
dtparam=audio=on
gpu_mem=128

  And then reboot and check the status.

And if not working pleas check boss driver is loaded or not using below command

aplay -l

It will display like allo boss dac

Please share the dmesg output and ls mod ouput also

With Regards

Thank you for your support. I however must admit that I am a linux noob. I made the changes you suggested. Now alsa is displayed as an option. I can however only select ALSA: Default(bcm2835). Then music output is through HDMI.

A log file is made to http://sprunge.us/CADf
