Stream audio from external DAC with VLC

I have a FM stereo tuner which I have been streaming over the home network using Windows 7 + VLC + DirectShow. Worked fine.

Using the same laptop, I figured I cld do the same with endless OS, but the v4l2 does not accept the behringer’s input. I know it works, because I can stream music files on the endless-os laptop to the device downstairs…the device is listed as hw:1,0 - this may just be a VLC issue ??

Do I need to activate V4l2 ?

BTW - Enjoying this release of Linux -
