Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Well I have MPD 0.19.1 on my raspberry PI and alsa section that I successfully use for my USB DAC in mpd.conf looks like:

audio_output {
type "alsa"
name "ustars"
device "hw:1,0"
mixer_type "hardware"
mixer_device "hw:Dummy"
mixer_control "Master"
}

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Hi Maarten, Introducing default volume level is a very good idea - one will not have to manually adjust level after recalibration every time. An example script can be found in the scripts folder. Are you sure you did upload it there? Scripts folder was last updated 2 months ago. Best wishes, Nick

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Wow, I tried it with default setting and it works like a charm. As I mentioned somewhere above after installation on my ubuntu 16.04 system I had to manually create /var/run/synchronator folder - otherwise synchronator throws file not found error. Would be nice if it created the folder (if absent) w...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Thank you Maarten, I'll play with it next week - when I'm back at home. Unfortunately I'll not be able to test IR control for the simple reason that either IR receiver of my amp or remote are damaged. Meanwhile, as promised, let me report on the way I found to handle power management thing. Here is ...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Just an idea: One can use setting vol to zero twice in a second to put amp into idle. Also will have to send power=on command any time vol regulator leaves zero position - not a big deal, just occasional redundant command I believe.

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

That's an interesting approach, hadn't thought of that. If you're willing to test it I can implement that. I'm not giving any timeframe on that though, but can I report here when there is something to test. I'll gladly test. I've also added myself to watchers of your synchronator github project. As...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Hi Maarten, Thank you for prompt reply and fix. It works now! I'm going out of town for ten days and so will not be able to play much with it soon. As for suggestions I think it would have been helpful if synchronator did log actual commands it sends - that way I'd have understood why it did not wor...

Re: Control volume with custom scripts

Thank you Maarten, indeed your project looks like what I need. Well, installation and configuration went without problems. Upon running I got "Failed to open lock file" but creating /var/run/synchronizer folder did help. Now synchronator runs and log looks like: synchronator[3797]: Checking presence...

Control volume with custom scripts

Well my setup is like this: nettop with mpd server using alsa ---> usb DAC ---> Integrated Amp Integrated Amp is attached also directly to nettop through its RS232 comm port. I use that to send commands to Amp (like volume up/down, wake/standby). Currently I ssh to nettop and use moc player to play ...
