Getting rid of Pivumeter?


#1

Hi,

I have a Pi Zero W with both Display-O-Tron and Speaker-Phat.
I 've already set the pivumeter’s brightness to 0 in the asound.conf but it is still making the dothat’s LEDs glitch when a sound is playing…

Is there a way to get permanently rid of pivumeter ?

Thanks,
Charles

Try editing /etc/asound.conf and changing:

pcm.softvol_and_pivumeter {
        type softvol
        slave.pcm "pivumeter"
        control {
                name "PCM"
                card 0
        }
}

to:

pcm.softvol_and_pivumeter {
        type softvol
        slave.pcm "hw:0,0"
        control {
                name "PCM"
                card 0
        }
}

If yours is different, then you can use/change the file here. Sound will work if you just simply remove asound.conf, but it’s also used for software volume.
