DietPi 6 SSH login problems

Hi have login details changed? On my Mac Terminal i have tried to SSH into both RPi and Allo versions of V6 without success. I have worked on previous iterations without problem. On entering 'dietpi' as password I get... Root@(ip no)'s password: Permission denied, please try again. Any suggestions (...

Re: How to save changes made to alsamixer (Squeezelite)

There's no hurry. Have a nice Mother's Day (in Italy we celebrate it in May) :) Utterly brilliant! Worked like a charm through multiple reboots. It needed the removal of the quotation marks but otherwise i followed your very clear directions. Had a nice lunch too with both of our mothers (mine is 9...

Thanks once more. I'll give that a go later (I'm cooking the Mother's Day lunch).
Cheers, Bob

Thanks but I'm new to this Linux lark and I wouldn't know where to start!

Re: How to save changes made to alsamixer (Squeezelite)

You have been very helpful and there is certainly no need to be sorry. Oddly the PCM volume command did not work when placed within the inverted commas! I will have a go with another card but for the time being will live with it as it is - I am very pleased with the DietPi resilience and sound - it'...

Re: How to save changes made to alsamixer (Squeezelite)

Thank you for your assistance - If I could trouble you for a bit more guidance. I worked through your clear and helpful instructions and found that the following command set the required level... root@DietPi:~# amixer sset PCM Playback Volume 60 Simple mixer control 'PCM',0 Capabilities: pvolume pvo...

Re: How to save changes made to alsamixer (Squeezelite)

Im still stumped. In desperation I installed piCorePlayer on a spare card. PCM level in Alsa was 100% and volume was fine. However, in comparison with DietPi, it was less stable over WiFi. Are there any tweaks I can make in the DietPi-config menu that will force higher PCM levels on startup?

Re: How to save changes made to alsamixer (Squeezelite)

Thanks, strange indeed! Changes made in root (i think) see screen shot below... I am not all that savvy with command lines - how would I check user and group permissions and what should I be looking for?

Re: How to save changes made to alsamixer (Squeezelite)

alsactl store Thanks, I gave that a go but it did not work... On opening alsamixer PCM is 0 [dB gain: -64.00], this results in a very faint sound on my system through the DragonFly Red with the volume at 100%. I change the PCM to 84 [dB gain -4.00] which gives excellent sound quality and full range...

How to save changes made to alsamixer (Squeezelite)

After successfully running a RPi3/DietPi/DragonFly Red combo in Roon, I am trying to set up the same configuration with Squeezelite. I have the thing running OK but the sound output is very low. I have worked out how to set the required PCM level using ssh alsamixer but the setting reverts when the ...
