    piCorePlayer: Squeezelite doesn't start when USB DAC is turned off

    Hi there,

    I started using piCorePlayer recently. So far I am excited about how easy it is to use both for running LMS and Squeezelite.
    My question is about Squeezelite which I run on a Pi without anything else running (no LMS).

    I schedule a cronjob to reboot at night.
    This morning I found out that Squeezelite was not running. I then found out that Squeezelite won't start if my DAC turned off (SMSL Sanskrit 10th II). The Pi is connected to my DAC with USB.
    I have "Output setting" set to "hw:CARD=AUDIO,DEV=0" and there is no problem with playback or startup as long as the DAC is turned on when I start Squeezelite.

    Question: Is it possible to make Squeezelite start even when my DAC is not turned on? (I of course accept that I can't hear the music when it is not on :-))

    Perhaps it is not necessary to reboot every night. Any experience with stability when not rebooting?

    Thanks in advance.

    There's a guide on the piCorePlayer site to make Squeezelite (re)start when the DAC appears: https://docs.picoreplayer.org/projec...-from-usb-dac/

    The thread that led to that guide is here: https://forums.slimdevices.com/showt...lug-in-USB-dac
