Hi, it could be using an incompatible sampling rate by default. Pisound natively supports 48000, 96000 and 192000 rates. Ideally, the software should be configured to use one of those, or if that’s not possible, some software resampling stage should be set up.
Thanks for the quick answer! Ah damn, too bad. Someone tried with “pulseaudio” backend, but I haven’t managed to do that, and I got an error. In case someone is interested, started to ask there:
It actually worked out with an older shairport: https://github.com/abrasive/shairport
So I dont understand why it worked there. But I have severe lags in transmitting the audio so thats why I tried it with the new system. Hope it somehow works, and I understand it is a bit offtopic here. Thanks!
The error shown in the log says the card is busy. By default Patchbox OS has Jack backend set up, as it allows software that supports Jack to work at the same time. If possible, try configuring Shairport to use Jack backend. If it’s not possible, try stopping and disabling Jack and try starting Shairport again. To stop and disable Jack, do:
patchbox module deactivate
sudo systemctl disable jack
sudo systemctl stop jack
The first line turns off any Patchbox module you may have had activated, so it won’t end up starting Jack on next reboot.
