I have an annoying problem with the speaker. I am using LG CM2540DAB small speaker system with CD,FM,USB,analog in connected to picroft. The device has an annoying feature that it shuts itself off after 6 hours of idle time to save energy, and this cannot be disabled.
As you can imagine, it’s not so great when using it on mycroft
If I remember correctly, I managed to circumvent this a long time ago on openelec, kodi had some option “keep audio out alive” or similar.
Do you have any suggestion how to do it in pulseaudio? I have commented out in default.pa suspend on idle, but that is not enough, I think I need to send some “pings” to the audio out in order to keep this speaker alive.
If there is no “nice” way, I will cron “aplay silence.wave” every 5 hours and make him play some silence I will record with mycroft microphone…
