    PiCorePlayer configure DAC settings

    Hi all,

    I have a DAC called Sabreberry. I got 3 of them and tested them with PiCore 3.11 and DAC settings I-Sabre-ES9023 DAC

    Two of them are working fine but one not.

    The one not working I hear the source playing but also noise as loud as the source, little like pink noise. I thought the DAC maybe damaged so I got new one and some more.
    Problem is the same. Then I tested the DAC with the volumio player. and on this it works. So I think it is a settings issue

    Following infos I have on the DAC

    no I2C needed
    no I2S clock
    no EEProm
    should work with hifiberry-dac-overlay

    Ive tested all Sabre DAC and hifiberry DAC on the Picore Player 3.11 and the 3.20 beta. But problem is still the same.

    Some idea of how I could get them working on the PiCore?
    Is there a way to configure or change the existing DACs in the list?

    Thanks a lot

    Here I have a list of sample rates it should work but I'm not to deep into this issue to know whats up with this.

    Framerates to 45.1584 should work
    I should set 192fs oder 128fs and 96 with 382fs or 256fs but I don't know what it means

    The DAC is from here http://muc89.com/minidac/i2s-dac/sabreberry.html

    That sounds like an hardware problem. The one who isn't working is most probably broken.
    You should contact your seller and issue a warranty claim.
