Enabling USB Soundcard without PnP

Post by Utakos » Sat Jul 02, 2011 8:30 am

PnP and other OS's been there done that, do not want to t-shirt. I now have a fresh Joggler with thanks to Roobarb!'s great reflashing tool and decided to just install iplayer and Squeezebox as this is all I require. What I would love to achieve is the ability to improve the sound quality with a USB soundcard but do not know really which one to go for and how to enable it?
On a side note has anyone used a bluetooth dongle with native os as this looks like a great piece of kit http://www.concept-av.co.uk/shop/access ... 4QodBGeCWQ to get audio to the hifi?

To enable external USB sound card you need to ensure that the pcm.default! section of your /etc/asound.conf files looks like this:

pcm.!default {
type hw
card 1
}
