No audio...?


Hi folks,

I have one of the new Picades featuring the new picade-x hat. Everything is working as intended except for the audio. I’ve checked the connections to the hat and they seem to be ok (they don’t come out even with a firm tug).

This may not be relevant, but I previously used this card / pi with the new Hyperpixel.

I tried re-running the setup script and this is the output:

Checking for dependencies...
alsa-utils is already installed

Already up-to-date.

Finalising Install...

Picade HAT: Installer

Installed: /boot/overlays/picade.dtbo
Warning: /etc/udev/rules.d/10-picade.rules already exists, not replacing!
Warning: /etc/asound.conf already exists, not replacing!
Config: Uncommented "dtoverlay=picade" in /boot/config.txt
Config: Uncommented "dtparam=audio=off" in /boot/config.txt
Installation finished. You must reboot for changes to take effect!

My /boot/config.txt now looks like this:

I think this is most likely a software issue caused by me previously using this card in a HyperpixelPi. Any suggestions for what could be going wrong? (dtparam=audio=off looks suspect to me but I have no idea what I’m doing with this file)


So… my Retropie setup went mental after I messed with a few too many settings, so I just wiped it and did a fresh install and now I have sound (but no ROMS. Good job I have them all backed up somewhere after the recent rom site crisis)


I made the same mistake. Turned out my previous build had a DAC installed. Fresh image fixed that.
