I pulled out a new SD card , I haven't done anything with as far as audio goes.
I have the dvswitch programs installed.
tested aplay -l and arec -l and set the correct setting in /etc/asound.conf
tested playing a wav file through the usb sound card
Both of these worked
speaker-test -D sysdefault:CARD=1
When I ran USRPAudio.py I go t one error and that was for pyaudio.
So , I loaded python-pyaudio and python3-pyaudio
now the screen is riddled with the error I reported earlier.
