i am able to control the volume of the pcm device via mpd/mpc commands now. unfortunately it has no effect on the volume of the output sound (sound is playing but sound-volume stays at the same level no matter how high or low the controler is) …
at the moment the relevant section in forked-daapd shows like that:
#Local audio output
#Name - used in the speaker list in Remote
nickname = “Computer”
#Type of the output (alsa, pulseaudio, dummy or disabled)
type = “alsa”
#For pulseaudio output, an optional server hostname or IP can be
#specified (e.g. “localhost”). If not set, connection is made via local
#server = “”
#Audio PCM device name for local audio output - ALSA only
card = “hw:0”
#Mixer channel to use for volume control - ALSA only
#If not set, PCM will be used if available, otherwise Master.
#mixer = “PCM”
#Mixer device to use for volume control - ALSA only
#If not set, the value for “card” will be used.
#mixer_device = “PCM”
/etc/asound.conf is ecaxtly as you suggested.
what am i missing?
