RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - _Spook_ - 2016-10-05

I tried HDMI bitstream 5.1/7.1 and HDMI passthrough 7.1/5.1 to AVR. No sound. Same setup on #1003 4.7.6 is OK.

I also made sure that the output device was correct because that sometimes changes for some reason.

RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - jjslegacy - 2016-10-05

Same here with 4.8 no audio on the asus chromebox. Nothing looked out of the ordinary - will have to dig in more later.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - Milhouse - 2016-10-05

Correction to my earlier post, my NUC is a NUC6i5SYH not NUC6i5SYK.

@_Spook_ and @porkchop999: I've now hooked the NUC6i5SYH up to my Onkyo NR-828 amp (into 5.1 speakers) and I get no audio with any recent 4.8 build - not #1003x (4.8.0), #0926x (4.8-rc8) or #0919x (4.8-rc7). I've tested both with and without passthrough, same result - no sound.

Audio is working fine with the same setup and 4.7.6 (ie. #1004). Audio is also working fine with my Revo3700 (Atom)/ION2 and 4.8 (any version) into this amp. The amp doesn't support 4K, nor does my TV.

The only 4.8 builds that have working audio when the NUC is connected to the amp are #0917k and #0917m:

#0917k: without the 4k patch; without the lspcon patch
#0917l: with the 4k patch; with the lspcon patch
#0917m: without the 4k patch; with the lspcon patch

#0917l also has no audio.

Oddly, all these builds have working audio when testing with my 1080p computer monitor over HDMI.

Obviously the 4K patch would appear to be the problem, but I've no idea why the same builds work with a cheap computer monitor but not with a more capable amp. And why this problem is only being reported now, when the older builds also had problems (or maybe it's only with specific hardware?)

Are you Intel users testing these 4.8 builds with 4K capable hardware (either amp, TV or both)?


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - Milhouse - 2016-10-05

Here's a new 4.8.0 build #1005x: Generic

It's the same as #1004 (in terms of Kodi etc., but built with gcc-6.2), but does NOT include the 4K patch like previous 4.8 builds. Can you test this and let me know if you now have working audio?


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - porkchop999 - 2016-10-05

Yes #1005x has audio


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - Milhouse - 2016-10-05

Great, I've now dropped the 4K patch so it won't appear in future 4.8 builds.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - porkchop999 - 2016-10-05

I still have it skipping a frame every 5 sec (only on 4.8 builds). But will do a bit more testing to make sure its not hyperion or something like that causing it.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - porkchop999 - 2016-10-05

Looks like modesetting driver was causing the skipped frames. No problem with the intel driver.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - fritsch - 2016-10-05

Don't forget to file bugs for all this upstream. Concerning the 4kpatch, also in the already open report.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - pacoma2610 - 2016-10-05

using #1004 works everything fine,

but i have some entries in my Logfile which I do not know myself what that can mean, and no idea how to resolve.

Hope someone of you can help me there, or confirm that the messages are harmless

- ERROR: DBus: Error org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown - The name org.freedesktop.UPower was not provided by any .service files
- ERROR: Got MSGQ_ABORT or MSGO_IS_ERROR return true


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - Milhouse - 2016-10-05

@_Spook_ and @porkchop999 - can you confirm if #0926x (4.8-rc8) has working audio for you?

My NUC6i5SYH when connected to my amp has no audio going back as far as #0917l (which is based on 4.8-rc6). I'm sure we had positive reports with these builds, and I can only assume this and later builds with the 4K patch were all working for you both (but not the latest #1003x build based on 4.8.0 - I've no idea what changed here, if anything).

I'm just wondering if the 4K patch _ever_ worked... or maybe it only worked when connected to a 4K-capable output device (or something very basic)? For me, the 4K patch works only when connected to a simple computer monitor with the most basic audio capabilities, and doesn't appear to have ever produced working audio with my amp.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - porkchop999 - 2016-10-05

Yes #0926x has audio
I have hdmi going straight to the TV (4ktv) and the audio going via DP to the receiver (my receiver messes up the color space)


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - _Spook_ - 2016-10-05

I will check all this after work for my setup.


RE: LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 17.0) - jjslegacy - 2016-10-05

Millhouse - just as a reference my asus chromebox is hooked up to a Denon amp to a jvc proejctor (1080p) so nothing 4k related and I had no audio in the 1003x build.
