journalctl -u gmrender -f would be tail the log constantly until you cancel it

It seems to be "STOPPED".
So i guess the app is sending the correct information ?

After reading this post :
https://www.audiosciencereview.com/foru ... 03/page-69

It could be an usb power issue.
I'm going to try and test differents configurations and see.

But it's maybe not a Dietpi issue or question, so i won't bother you more with this :)
Thanks you both for your help !

I wouldn't wonder indeed. USB power is a typical issue on SBCs, although I'd have expected the Sparky SBC to be prepared well for USB DACs in this regards :?.

While it may not be a DietPi issue, it would be great to know if you found a solution, so probably we can add it to our docs, e.g. our GMediaRender docs, of as part of a general troubleshooting part when it comes to blocked audio devices :).
