I first tested Mycroft out on a Raspbery Pi2b - PS3 EYE, and a cheap 3.5mm speaker. I knew it wasn’t recommended but I just wanted to try it. I liked Mycroft after testing, so I bought the following gear to run Mycroft:
- Raspbery Pi 4b
- 5.1v 3amp 15.8watt power supply
- Blue Snowball ICE microphone
- Creative 3.5mm Pebble speakers
- 32gb Samsung EVO U1 MicroSD card
I can load Picroft fine from the stable image.
I can run the setup wizard and successfully pass both the recording and playback tests.
Once Mycroft launches, Microphone and Speakers no longer work.
In the Mycroft CLI window, the mic level doesn’t register anything.
I can type commands in the mycroft cli terminal and everything operates as it should, just without any working mic input or speaker output.
I have played with alsamixer, pacmd, mycroft-config, I cannot figure out what’s going on. And I bought the recommended hardware.
So, I’m really lost at this point.
mycroft-speak does not work, but arecord and aplay both work fine.
If anyone has any ideas I would love some help. I’m putting a fresh load back on again to start over.
