Before you update your image, please capture any configuration changes
you might have made like current alsamixer settings.
Run alsa-show.sh & make a copy of result. Note a minimum
microSD card size of at least 16GB is recommended.

Latest RPi image current_image.zip has been updated to nwdr14.zip at
this location: http://images.nwdigitalradio.com/downloads

Please follow the "Getting Started Guide" from the UDRC Wiki.
https://nw-digital-radio.groups.io/g/udrc/wiki/DRAWS%3A-Getting-Started

This image has a Linux kernel (4.19.66) that includes Anna's main line
TI tlv320aic device driver that supports the UDC / UDRC II & DRAWS hats.
This means you can more easily make your own images.

On first boot, if you have an attached monitor, you will see the piwiz
configuration screen currently used on new Raspbian images.

If you are using a Raspberry Pi 4 and your monitor is blank then add
this to /boot/config.txt to use HDMI safe mode.
hdmi_safe=1

If you have any problems please include the output of script showudrc.sh
with your problem description.
