No Sound on Splash Screen - Kite's SAIO

Post by tyler335 » Thu Apr 13, 2017 8:05 am

I have @kite 's SAIO. It works perfectly. Since the SAIO gets sound through USB, I am unable to get sound for the video splash screen when the pi zero is booting up. Does anyone know how to enable sound on the SAIO during boot before the splash screen?

The issue is that omxplayer doesn't support USB sound cards, however some of these changes might need to be applied https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q ... dio-device I will look at them this weekend to double check I have set up USB sound on my image correctly.. FYI I set the sound to how the sw image manual says to for USB audio, so the /etc/asound.conf is set up doing the work.

UPDATE!

The last comment on this thread said ALSA audio IS supported on omxplayer! https://github.com/popcornmix/omxplayer/issues/442

I have tested this with 'omxplayer -o alsa <video.mp4>' and audio works! We just need to find out where the call is made in a script somewhere and add '-o alsa' to the command and it'll work.

EDIT!

SOLUTION FOUND!
Edit '/etc/init.d/asplashscreen' and change the line:

Code: Select all

omxplayer -o both -b --layer 10000 "$line"
to:

Code: Select all

omxplayer -o alsa -b --layer 10000 "$line"
(the change is 'both' to 'alsa')

And you have sound on splashscreen :)

I will be adding this by default to the NEXT pre-made image.. I'll update here with link when done.
Great job! I had looked at this line in the code but at the time only local, hdmi, or both were options. This is recently added. Good find.

Ok, just an update. Found a small bug in that changing code on omxplayer call for splash screen will disable emulation station sound on game list scroll until you start and exit one game. Then scroll sound works. Not a deal breaker though. Maybe a work around for that can be found also.

For those (like me) who don't know their linux that well, you can edit this "asplashscreen" file by opening terminal (pressing F4) and typing:

sudo nano /etc/init.d/asplashscreen

After changing the code to what kite showed above, hold ctrl and choose the hot key option "write to file" (I think it is ctrl + O).
