I just made a fresh Jessie lite install of a RaspberryPi zero with pHAT DAC.
The installation of the pHAT DAC seems to be fine, passing the test.
Then I installed shairpoint-sync according to the guide: https://github.com/mikebrady/shairport-sync/blob/master/README.md
When trying to start shairport-sync I get the error: Failed to find mixer element
The /etc/shairport-sync.conf file contains:
output_device = “default”;
mixer_control_name = “PCM”;
running the alsamixer reports: "This sounds device does not have any controls."
but Item: is blank
Any ideas what could be wrong?
