i got my pi-top Ceed and the Speaker this week. Is installed the package and set the speaker to mono. I2C is enabled and the Ceed was rebooted. Than I wanted to play music with the omxplayer. Tried both normal and hdmi, and I tried the mplayer...
But there were nothing to hear. What can I do, to get it to work?
Michael Davis. Any luck with the Pi-top Speaker + Pi-Top Proto & Sense Hat?
Here is also problem with Speaker and Proto+Sense HAT. No sound until Sense HAT is removed.
I forgot to say that I am using pi-topCeed. Before I bought it, I used Sense HAT and Cluster HAT apps very succesfully with Raspberry PI 3B+. Now I want try to get those working with pi-topCeed.
"i2cdetect -y 1" shows Sense HAT (UU) and Speaker (73) =mono. Alsamixer is also loaded, but no sound from Speaker.
I did some problem solving and got sound working, but this is not permanent solution to problem.
Here is video of it and in comment section there a guide how to do it.
Permanent solution to this problem is to get pi-topSpeaker mk.2
mk.1 works in i2c interface and mk.2 i2s interface. My problem was to get protoboard (sense hat and cluster hat) working with speaker. My pi-topCeed is rather new, but was shipped with mk1 speaker.
