    piCorePlayer and Topping MX3

    Hi,

    I've been using piCorePlayer for some years, just got a Topping MX3 - update from earlier Topping model and can't get it to play (yes it is in USB mode!). I've tried every output option going for squeezelite, some of them appear to work from the logs but I don't get any sound. I have updated piCorePlayer to 6.1 today.

    Any clues much appreciated.

    thanks
    Paul

    The device has a 24bit/96KHZ USB input,

    so maybe try using the output beginning plughw:

    In the LMS web gui > Settings > Player > Audio

    do you have this set to 100% volume ?

    Maybe try connecting everything up, starting the Topping, select USB input, then turn on the pi.

    or reversing the procedure, pi on first then Topping

    Edit: is the output set correctly on the Topping ?

    Thanks, seems this was a bit of a problem solving 101 issue - answer power cycle the Topping.
    I had tried soft power cycling everything but it seems that the Topping needed power to be unplugged and fully rebooted, then reboot the pi and now multiple options work including the hw:CARD=MX3,DEV=0 that I thought it should be.

    thanks
