My Hifiberry Digi finally arrived

I finally got my Hifiberry Digi this week 🙂

It was delayed as I put the wrong house number on the order and the Danish postal service was unable to figure out that the package was for number 19 instead of 29.

But here it is next to the Raspberry pi:

After soldering in the 2-by-4 header and mounting the nylon spacer it all looked like this:

After some problems with my SD card and SD card writer I managed to get the latest Raspbian image running and a few minutes later I had sound via the optical output.

All I did was to follow the guide provided by Crazy-Audio on….

Here is what I did:

Get the newest Kernel

sudo rpi-update
sudo reboot

Add the following lines to /etc/modules


I also had to comment out the following line in /etc/modprobe.d/

blacklist i2c-bcm2708

After a reboot I ran the test script provided by Crazy-audio

mv check-system check-system.dac
chmod u+rx ./check-system.dac

Now the next task will be to get the system running with XBMC
