Audio while using pi 3 for p10 matrix
« on: August 23, 2016, 05:31:20 AM »
hey guys was wondering if I could have audio playing out of the same pi player running my p10 matrix or am I going to have to run a second pi in slave mode for the audio output


Thanks
Scott

You could use a USB soundcard on the Pi running the P10's.  The P10/RGBMatrix code needs the PWM, so the onboard soundcard is disabled when running P10 or direct-attached WS281x pixels on the Pi.
