Out of nowhere, I now have a Mute icon at the top right corner of my screen. Audio is just fine when watching movies but I don't hear the sound effects when I navigate through the various screens.

I'm running the latest Dharma.

Thanks in advance.

Press "+" or or "-" from your keyboard to adjust audio volume or "F8" to toggle muting. You can (if I remember correctly) use "F9" and "F10" keys too to adjust volume. I'm in the train now so I can't check. Big Grin

The reason why you are able to hear audio when watching movies is that you are probably using audio pass-through. XBMC won't touch pass-through audio streams and volume controls don't affect pass-through audio.

I'm having a similar issue. big honk'n white "mute" sign on the upper part of my screen - when i try using volume up or down it says "Passthrough Audio in Use"

I cannot disable passthrough audio or my sound won't work correctly.

Any ideas as to what the heck is going on here?



edit: nevermind, i just needed to be at the "home screen" and then turn the volume up.

or just press the mute button on your remote Smile

Thinking of getting that elusive donor status? Team Kodi accepts donations in bitcoin as well as paypal.
