Audio output
#1
Hi everyone.

My problem is getting Audio output to my speakers via either BT or the stereo-audio otput (headphones).
I've found no way to get this working.
I've tried the settings in sudo raspi-config / advanced, but no success.
Audio output on the settings panel in Open CPN refers to "unknown 0".

Audio output via HDMI seem to be working OK (but I don't have HDMI in my boat)

Please help

Best regards
Peter

Raspberry Pi 4B 4GB
OpenCPN 5.2.0

I use Logitech Media Server and Squeezelite to play music from my RPI. I got Bluetooth working reliably using these instructions:

https://github.com/oweitman/squeezelite-bluetooth

You can probably use parts of this to get your Bluetooth working as well.

Full disclosure - I ended up removing these modifications because they conflicted with my Bluetooth connection to my Calypso BLE wind transducer. When I had them installed they worked very reliably with good audio quality.

Great,
Looks a bit complicated  Huh
I'll give it a try from my backup card.

My Raspberry identifies and connects to my BT speaker from the BT menu... BUT... No sound!!!
The sound seems to lock on to the HDMI regardless of my config setting

i use the following, it creates an AirPlay Device, you can stream Music from iPad or iPhone to the Raspberry Port.
It works very well, if you use the little 3,5 mm Cables to your active Speakers. Works with WiFi, so you don´t have
to use your Bluetooth.

sudo apt-get install shairport-sync

keep on, Holger
