Hifiberry
I have noticed there's a sale on at hifiberry - is it supported in xbian now?

The most recent mention that I have found is on github where the mk01 says the modules have been added to a kernel package. Does this mean it's working?

RE: Hifiberry
I did a search on here but it didn't shed much light on the matter. Last comment was back in May (although someone claims to have a digiberry working).

Maybe one of the 'devs' will enlighten us?

RE: Hifiberry
You may want to make this a request on github, mk01 would be more apt to answer your question there.

RE: Hifiberry
3.15.y line of kernel was confirmed to work and support hifiberry.

3.12.y was configured accordingly and later 3.12.20 was issued so even 3.12.y should support it.

only problem is "ugly" design of the modules in the chain which refused to configure DMA in case DMA support is not compiled as module.

RE: Hifiberry
So does this mean....

Yes it works?
No it doesn't work?
Or it works but only on some systems?

Sorry but I am a little confused by this! :-O

RE: Hifiberry
@Skywatch

you are making too much complicated Wink
FACTS:
1) three users demanded that via git issue tracker
2) support was added into all kernels
3) ONE user responded it is not working
- problem was fixed and he confirmed "it is working now"

nobody else ever returned to the other two issues "we would like to have support"
so until anybody tells differently:

yes, it works.

Yes, I can confirm - it works, its supported by ALSA drivers.
But it doesn't work for XBMC.
AFAIK only some OpenElec experimental builds can utilize ALSA drivers.

You can get one now ;-)
Latest XBIAN release supports ALSA.
Big thanks for devs.

RE: Hifiberry
0xFF,

Wow! - That is great news.

Can't wait to see how this works.... What is the process to set it up and running with XBMC under Xbian please?
Is it just a tick box in the XBMC menu or is there more to it?

Cheers for the heads up.

RE: Hifiberry
For me it was: apt-get update; apt-get upgrade; apt-get install xbmc-alsa-package.
After that you have option to select ALSA in the XBMC menu.
Take look at an "official RC3 thread" http://forum.xbian.org/thread-2451-page-4.html

RE: Hifiberry
Thanks 0xFF!

I'll order one in the next 7 days to try.

EDIT -------

After looking into it more I found another DAC that I have ordered to try, and have another in mind to try in the future if it doesn't perform......

It's actually named "xbian-package-xbmc-alsa".
