Thx for the compliments, but what we really need is you to do a report like the others, with a pastebin'd xbmc.log. Smile

And that goes for EVERYONE! We need logs. Working non working. Report your setups.

Thx for the feedback. As much as I don't like to tell people to upgrade, you may have better luck with your Yahama receiver if you upgrade to 4.3.x and then select '16bit' in the Audio settings screen in Frontrow, rumor has it. Wink

Seems like Apple fixed some Audio issues they had.

XBMC: 20110620-862ff92 IOS: 4.2.1 ATV2: 4.1.1
Pioneer VSX-1014TX connected via SPDIF to Panasonic TC-50PX14 (Plasma TV).
TV is then connected by HDMI to ATV2
Using HDMI - SPDIF passthrough on TV since my amp does not have HDMI
HDMI audio, 5.1, AC3/DTS selected

I installed the AE .deb, loaded XBMC and immediately noticed no GUI sounds (which AE has) I then went in and deleted guisettings.xml. Once XBMC was restarted I had GUI sounds and setup all of my audio settings again.
Tested were several forms of video/audio combinations.
Xvid/MP3, H264/DTS, H264/DD, H264/AAC, H264/AAC 5.1.
Everything worked great except for the AAC 5.1 the center channel appeared to be missing. (This was the last video I tried and at the end of xbmc.log)

Other issue I noticed is that all of my videos now take about 3-4 times longer to load then they used to in previous builds. The waiting screen only showed up for 5 seconds or so and now it's almost 20-30 seconds before a movie will start. Not sure if AE has anything to do with this.

Pastebin would not allow me to upload entire log so I updated from the point I started testing.

XBMC 20110620-862ff92 ATV2: 4.2.2 (2203)
No receiver
HDMI 2.0 to Samsung TV, AC3/DTS Off
Music + Movies via FTP; ATV2 is on WiFi; FTP server wired on LAN


As already reported, ALAC files stutter, downpitch

I too am seeing longer load times as #35 and #38.

Wife reported that XBMC been crashing during past few days (as I started this AE testing) randomly while child is watching her cartoons: MKVs 720p, some AC3 some DTS some 2.0

FLAC file started playing well pastebin, but then XBMC crashes 56 seconds into this song. Are there other logs that I could look at/pastebin post crash to pinpoint the reason?

Setup: ATV2 ---HDMI---> Panasonic TV ( TH-42PX75U ) ---TOSLINK---> Pioneer Receiver (VSX-516)

Previously, I couldn't run the setup this way, as there would be a loud static sound when playing any audio. To remedy this, I would have to do HDMI directly to the TV, and TOSLINK directly to the receiver. This would allow playback of DTS & AC3 content just fine.

With the AE merged, I can go to the setup I stated above (thankfully!). When playing DTS / AC3 content (and doing pass through), it gives me a loud clicking sound. The other sounds plays fine (GUI sounds & other video files). Once I disabled AC3/DTS passthrough all the audio seems to play fine.

xbmc.log - AC3 / DTS disabled (Disregard the NFS issues, I was working out the permissions.)
xbmc.log - AC3 / DTS Enabled (Loud Clicking Sounds)

XBMC settings: Optical/coax. 5.1 speakers, AC3 selected

The American
720p: stereo plays fine but AC3 has no sound. With AC3 and Output stereo to all speakers selected, this also has no sound.
1080p: stereo plays fine, AC3 has no sound, and DTS tries to downsample and I get stuttering stereo with random freezes of video.

Sidenotes: I have always had trouble with this receiver playing AC3 from the AppleTV variants (I have both an ATV1 & ATV2) on XBMC, as well as from my Mac mini.

You deleted guisettings.xml ?

No Center Sound through HDMI on 5.1 movies after upgrading using most recent here http://hadm.net/xbmc/ae/.

equipment atv2 connected to Panny 50vt20 via HDMI then ARC to Panny SCBTT755

Get all channels apart from center. tried deleting guisettings.xml but no joy. tried various permutations of audiooutput section as well. Anyone else seen this? i'd rather not use optiical if i can help it,i mean pressing one button too many to watch a movie. Lazy i know but i'm almost at my nirvana !!
