    I am still trying to understand the switches. The logic diagram has them listed by mnemonic and I think I have found a table that lists the mnemonic and it's logic description. Now I have to work out the working combo.

    Hi Paul

    I am just going to set mine up for headphone and speaker for now. I have saved alsamixer settings. How would I find out what the settings are?

    Some of the settings that are required don't make sense. Oh well, more research using the datasheet.

    Hi Paul

    I posted this to the betaicoreplayer6.0.0 pi4 forum but thought it was getting lost with all the posts. I hope this is OK.

    I am trying the 6.0.0 rc1 version. With the analog audio selected I can choose hw:CARD=aiyvoicebonnet,DEV=0 as the output but there is no audio output.

    Thank you for all your work getting this to work.

    You still need to do the manual mixer configurations.

    I did the manual mixer settings in alsamixer then went to the web page and saved the settings.


    every time I reboot, the alsamixer settings are the same, but I have to switch to the voice bonnet in alsamixer.

    The diagnostics page always shows [ INFO ] Squeezelite Volume controls as PCM.

    Some cards you cannot just do a alsactl restore, as alsa mixer tries to dump all of the commands at once, and some commands aren't valid until other modes are switched. You probably need to do them one by one. Make a script and then run the script via the user commands section.

    Hi Paul

    Operator error here :-(

    I missed 1 alsamixer setting. Sorry about that.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Hi Paul

    piCorePlayer6.0.0-rc1 is up and running very nicely.I have installed it several times to try and work out a install procedure.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks

    Greg

    Here is what I have worked through (I think I have it correct)

    setting up piCorePlayer (pCP) 6.0.0-rc1 on a Raspberrypi Zero W with a AIY version 2 voicebonnet

    download the piCorePlayer6.0.0-rc1 image from the piCorePlayer web site

    burn the image with your prefered SD card programmer

    mount the SD card and edit the wpa_supplicant.conf.sample for your wifi wireless router/access point

    change the file name to wpa_supplicant.conf

    connect to HDMI monitor and keyboard to set up alsamixer

    insert SD card into pCP and boot

    connect to the pCP web page and goto the Main Page

    click the Resize FS button (if desired)
    click the partition size dropdown and select the desired size
    click the Resize button

    goto the pCP Squeezelite Settings web page

    Set the output card to USB Audio

    click the card Save button

    click the card control button

    click the save squeezlite settings for reboot button

    go to the pCP main page and click the Reboot button


    after reboot

    goto the Squeezelite Settings page

    set the Output setting to device hw:CARD=aiyvoicebonnet,DEV=0

    click the card control button

    click the save squeezlite settings for reboot button

    go to the pCP main page and click the Reboot button


    after reboot

    go to the pCP cli and enter alsamixer

    It will probably display the PCM setting information

    enter F6 to change the Output setting to hw:CARD=aiyvoicebonnet,DEV=0

    set volumes and enable options using cursor and m keys

    I set set headphone and speaker gain values to 72
    and enable headphone, speaker, I2S2, DAC1 MIX, all HPO***'s, all SPK***'s, Stereo DAC MIX L, Stereo DAC MIX R. all other options disabled. all options have not thoroughly been figured out.

    go back to the pCP Squeezelite Settings web page

    click the card control button

    click the save squeezlite settings for reboot button

    set the player name you want and save

    go to your LMS server and select your new pCP

    you should be able to play music at this time

    go to the pCP main page and click the reboot button

    pCP should reboot and start playing music (providing you left LMS playing)

    Now you should be able to add extras to pCP (LMS server, etc.)

    Enjoy!
