AK4118 on Raspberry 4B - start settings?

  • I installed an Ak4118 Coaxial I2S audio card on Raspberry 4b but I can't choose it in the Libreelec audio output settings. What command should I give to install the new sound card in the system? Thank you !

  • Thank you Iridium, I've tried dtoverlay=hifiberry-dac and it's ok, now I can find it in audio setting.

    Unfortunately now the problem is that activating "audio passthrough" the audio disappears, so I don't have the decoding DD5.1 from the amplifier...

  • kardano, have you resolved your problem? If you use dtoverlay=hifiberry-dac, it will be recognized as an analog audio device, so you aren't able to change sampling rate frequency nor do "audio passthrough".

    I second you should try what Iridium suggested.

    Please kindly share your result, I am eyeing the same board, but if it cannot be recognized as a digital audio device, it's a pass.
