Hifiberry Dac+ Reicast no sound?

  • Hi, does anyone know how to get this combo working? I have searched and found a thread with info on changing the sound to ALSA, I tried this as the Hifiberry is routed through the ALSA mixer but after changing the config the result was no sound and emulation was too fast. Can anyone help? Thanks.

  • I have sorted it, anyone else with the same problem needs to do the following:

    sudo nano /boot/config.txt
    And scroll down to the bottom. If you see a line that says: dtparam=audio=on

    Disable it by putting a # in front.
    Then add:
    on the next line. Save the file.

    Next create /etc/asound.conf with the following content:

    pcm.!default {
    type hw card 0
    ctl.!default {
    type hw card 0

    Then go to: /home/pi/.reicast/emulators.cfg and change it to this:

    reicast-audio-alsa = "CON:/opt/retropie/emulators/reicast/bin/ alsa %ROM%"
    default = "reicast-audio-alsa"
    reicast-audio-oss = "CON:/opt/retropie/emulators/reicast/bin/ oss %ROM%"

    Save and reboot and enjoy!

    Also has anyone managed to get reicast to change to 16:9 aspect ratios? maybe i'll start a new topic for this.
