What happens when you do

aplay -Dhw:4,0 test.wav

card 4 device 0 should be the 3.5mm jack. If you want to test HDMI output just change the device number.

Alsa Lib Pcm, C:2660: (snd_pcm_open_noupdate) unkowen PCM fw:4.0 aplay :main 830: audio open error : no such file or directory

this is what I get back from typing in the command line

Yes makes sense, since aplay gave back Subdevices: 0/1 for this card. Maybe there is a overlay or something missing?
@MichaIng can surely help :slight_smile:

Are you sure that this was not a typo “fw:0,4” vs “hw:0,4”?

If you selected card 4 via dietpi-config, can you show the output of:

cat /etc/asound.conf
