I run MPD on a PI-zero. When configured the audio systen to analog (3.5mm jack) it runs ok. But when changed to HDMI and a HDMI splitter no sound comes out. When using “aplay” or “speaker-test” all is ok.

I wonder if the problem comes from the audio-output section in the mpd.conf file. There is a line like: device “hw: 0,0” What does this 0,0 mean? Is an explanation written somewhere?

Documentation for ALSA is old and all over the place. I found this site helpful: https://alsa.opensrc.org
