    Picoreplayer does not output sound

    I'm using the latest version of Picoreplayer + Hifiberry DAC + (china blue version) + original LCD.
    Everything works perfectly, but sometimes when you turn on the power and start Jivelite there is no sound. Hands of VU meters show movement, but sound is not. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
    Just in the Rebootpicoreplayer from settings menu and then everything works.
    I think, it would be enough time lag at startup ???
    Could you give me an advice please ?

    Sounds like a bad connection between the board and the rpi, or a bad power supply. Do you ever see a lightning bolt shown on the display?

    Perhaps take everything apart, clean the contacts and re-assemble.

    Power supply is 5A, switched. There is never a flash on the LCD. I checked the contact between PI and DAC.

    Squeezelite is what's generating the data for the VU meters, so it thinks it is playing audio.

    Post a screenshot of your Squeezelite setup page.

    Then also post your boot log (From the Diagnostics->Log) and dmesg section of Diagnostics. Only post the logs from after the player does not produce sound.

    Why do you have the DAC+ADC driver loaded?

    Please use the regular DAC+/DAC Pro

    The logs show the card is taking a very long time to get detected. Could be due to wrong driver.

    Now I'm trying picoreplayer beta6, set DAC + (and pro) = same result. Sometimes he plays, sometimes not.

    You will probably need to talk to HifiBerry.

    The only other thing to rule out is Alsa equal. Disable that and check.
