Requesting auto-connect for snap plug 'hardware-observe' & 'ALSA''

Hello, I am respectfully requesting to add ‘hardware-observe’ and ‘alsa’ auto connections to our cluemaster-mediadisplay-core snap application that runs only on CORE os with ubuntu-frame and has audio needs on CORE. This is a standalone core os device that is tightly integrated to our business software and the only snap on there will be the cluemaster snap.

Our kiosk-like core app has audio needs, so we integrated @Ogra 's latest pulse-server code into our application so we could have full audio sound control without the need for loading the older PulseAudio snap that is years old, has problems with HDMI audio, and is separate so we can not control outputs on core. To make the latest pulse-server code work inside of our snap, we require two auto connections, the ‘hardware-observe’ and the ‘alsa’, so the pulse-server code and see and identify audio hardware and send audio to HDMI outputs. We tested first by manually connecting these two interfaces and these are the two that make sound work. We are only using the audio-playback plug in our app which was manually approved the other day with the pulse-server code integrated.

Thank you for considering our request.

Hi. Can the @reviewers please vote? Thanks in advance

Hello @emitorino @alexmurray, I respectfully request the approval votes for the alsa, and hardware-observe so we can start testing and using our core app. I have not seen anyone vote for this thread yet and wanted to make sure it was not getting burried in the forum after the holiday.

Good Morning @reviewers , would it be possible to start votes for our request, please?

Thank you

+1 from me for auto-connect hardware-observe and alsa to cluemaster-mediadisplay-core since pulseaudio is not loaded. Can other @reviewers please vote?

@ClueMaster I am assuming you are aware of the alsa lack of proper multiplexing and due to your specific use case this is not an issue, is this correct?

Hello @emitorino . Thank you so much for the vote. Yes, we are aware but we only will have the cluemaster app + ubuntu-frame on a core PC and nothing else.

+1 from me too for auto-connect of hardware-observe and alsa for the cluemaster-mediadisplay-core snap.

+1 from me for auto-connect of hardware-observe and alsa for cluemaster-mediadisplay-core, as well.

+3 votes for, 0 votes against. Granting auto-connect of hardware-observe and alsa to cluemaster-mediadisplay-core. This is now live.
