I’m hoping someone can help as Ive spent a few hours trying different solutions but with one result - no sound.
2017 Picade kit (not the latest) and used the video for the setting up the new picade (found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTgu1fUVsmw). From what I can tell, the picadehat and picadehatx have the same drivers so shouldnt be any issues here.
Essentially I am getting no sound. When I go to Retropie > Audio I get the following appear on the screen for a second
lv10: volumecontrol::init() - failed to attach default card!
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1052:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
lv10: AudioManager Error - Unable to open SDL audio: ALSA: Couldn’t open audio device: No such file or directory
I then select “Headphones - 3.5mm jack”
When I go to Emulationstation settings > Sound Settings if I change the volume, it always goes back to 0% when I leave this screen and return.
I have been told that Audio Device = PCM
My assumption is either its something I have left in the config file or an issue with the sound driver and am pretty sure its something straightforward that at a glance someone will roll their eyes and tell me where I am going wrong
Any help would be really appreciated as I am close to giving up.
