Description Of Issue


I have the following problem

the HifiBerry Digi + (RAAT SDK version 1.1.36) is recognized under audio, but is inactive under zones after activation. Play is not possible.
What can I do to make the HifiBerry Digi + work?

Thank you in advance for your answer and hopefully a solution

Hello @Martin_Barkow, and welcome to the community! Could you please send me a screenshot of “Settings > Audio” and the zone picker? Thanks!


in the meantime i found out the solution myself. You have to transfer from an active zone in which the playback works to an inactive zone (<- ->), then the inactive zone is activated and playback is possible.
