I Have my Picroft quite a while now, however, never functioning.
So here is the story:
I ve came up with a setup of a Rpi 4 2gb ram with an headphone jack speaker, ethernet connection, Seedstudios 4 mic array and Kingston High endurance 32GB MicroSD Card.
so far so good…
I wrote the latest image to the card with the help of Etcher, set everything up, followed the driver install guide from Seedstudio (Guide from Seedstudio) and even installed the Skill from j1nx “h.ttps://community.mycroft.ai/t/respeaker-4-mic-array-hat-mycroft-a-i-skill/5773/41” wich makes the LEDs blink.
sadly, whatever I am trying to do, I dont get the mic being recognised by Mycroft, however the speaker output and blinking LEDs just turn out to be fine.
So here comes the part where I am searching for your advise:
- Whenever I make a call the mic level stays zero
- when I make the call to get the name for the soundcard (as stated in the guide:
~/seeed-voicecard $ arecord -L) it just returns its a directory
- when using the command from this site " pactl list sources short"
Mycroft Troubleshooting page, it just returns :
0 alsa_output.platform-bcm2835_audio.analog-mono.monitor module-alsa-card.c s16le 1ch 48000Hz SUSPENDED
- when trying to make a record with “arecord -Dac108 -f S32_LE -r 16000 -c 4 hello.wav”, it returns
ALSA lib pcm.c:2565:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM ac108
arecord: main:828: audio open error: No such file or directory
- when using the mic array on a blank raspbian, it works just fine until the moment I install Mycroft (followed Guide “h.ttps://www.j1nx.nl/project-1/diy-home-personal-ai-assistant-installing-configuration-part-4/”)
I am assuming Mycroft is messing up the mic input does anyone know how to fix this ?
Any help would be great, thanks (:
