Synology, hass.io, Spotify connect, USB Speakers

Hi,

I am very new to Home Assistant.

My setup: Synology Diskstation 720+, hass.io (Hass.io on Synology DSM (native package)), Spotify Addon (Premium Account), USB Speaker (Nubert NuPro A-200) connected to USB port of Synology Nas.

What works: Synology Diskstation can play audio via USB on my connected USB speakers, works fine.

My aim: I want to listen to Spotify on my Home Assistant with output on USB speakers.

What works: Home Assistant shows up in Spotify and I can play music on Home Assistant

What does not work: There is no sound output. In Spotify on my Mac I can see that Home Assistant is the Spotify device that is playing but Home Assistant does not direct the sound to the USB port/speakers.

The USB speakers display under Home Assistant / Hardware as USB DAC AUDIO but are not automatically configured as device.

Is there anything I can do to have Spotify sound output via USB connected to Synology NAS?

If any more specific info is needed I will be glad to provide.

Thanks and KR
Heiko

I would guess that the audio container couldn’t connect to the USB audio card. What does the logs say?

Thanks for your quick reply.

I am sorry, but I cannot judge what ist important in the logs, so I exported it.

But I do not see a way to upload .csv? Is there a way I could upload it?

Upload it to say pastebin. https://pastebin.com/

I registered with pastebin (free account) but did not manage to upload files there (it only pastes the path but not the files themselves)!? Also I did not manage to share the link to my pastebin to add it here!? :frowning:

Maybe you could download from my dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/2txldih8alun74k/AABXgUiEP_QSH4KVq3FAEDjea?dl=0
