I've just received my Digi+, mounted on RaspPi2 with openelec 5.0.8 onboard.
I configured it with device tree, adding the overlay directive for the hifiberry-digi.
As soon as I'm activating the hifiberry in PARAMS/SYSTEM/AUDIO/output and set passthrough on, the sound works via TosLink but my LiveTV streams (both SD & HD) seriously lag. The navigation becomes sluggish and erratic and the screen often blanks. The image disappears for one or two secondes and comes back.
If I set the audio back to HDMI, the system stays in that bad status. I need a reboot to get things back to normal (a reboot with hifiberry selected doesn't make things going better).
my dmesg shows this error:
[ 5.550608] snd-hifiberry-digi sound: ASoC: CODEC DAI wm8804-spdif not registered
[ 5.550681] snd-hifiberry-digi sound: snd_soc_register_card() failed: -517
[ 5.550724] platform sound: Driver snd-hifiberry-digi requests probe deferral
Thank you for advices to fix this.
Digi+ makes openelec slower when activated
