Micromega MyDac won't play 44.1khz
« on: August 16, 2016, 10:32:27 am »

Hi -
I have a Micromega MyDac connected via USB to MC on Debian Jessie.  When I try to play back 44.1khz flac files, I get an error from MC:
Playback could not be started on the output ALSA using the format 44.1kHz 2ch

If I force the 44.1 to be converted  to 48kHz it will play ok.  But I know the DAC supports 44.1 natively so it seems I shouldn't have to do that. 

I have tried with both MC 20 and 22, but are giving me the same problem.

Thanks in advance for suggestions!

Choose a hardware audio device in the menu (like front: or some such).
Don't use alsa, system default or default since they use the alsa mixer which enforces a 48k only sample rate.
