Hi - installed RoPieee on Raspberry Pi 3 without a HAT. However, I said it had a HAT (Pi DAC 12S) by mistake. RoPieee was found by roon and installed. Now when I correctly say no HAT configured it is no longer found by roon. Even when I try another HAT it is not found. Roon only finds it if I say Pi DAC again. How do I get roon to forget this and start again, as I can’t get any audio out of 3.5mm connection?
The built in RPi 3.5mm output is pretty crappy. Suggest you use either a hat or a usb dac connected, even something as simple as a dragonfly dac would be a higher step up from the pi output.
The issue is that Roon does not see Ropieee, unless I configure to say I have the Pi DAC - even though there is none. So my question was more about how to get Ropieee visible and useable. Thanks.
RoPieee does not act as an audio endpoint itself without:
- a HAT based DAC
- an USB DAC
In the latter case it’s important to realize that the DAC should be turned on to be able for Roon to pick it up.
I don’t know that ropieee enables the 3.5mm audio. @spockfish Harry could answer that. Failing that you could use dietpi.
Roon won’t see ropieee or dietpi unless it has valid device enabled. I2S is a dac interface option for a specific hardware interface.
Re-image your sd card and start over would be easiest I think
Ropieee has good reasons for not supporting the 3,5 mm analog line out: you don’t want to use it for anything. It’s that bad. Really.
Thanks for advice. Decided to go with DietPi as only needed for radio in kitchen. Works fine now.
