DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Krobar - 2021-11-19

Hi All,

I'm trying to investigate the issue I raised here:
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/issues/17427

The issue seems to be that many HDMI receivers do continually relock the DD+ bitstream when presented with the current one IEC/DD+ Packet followed by 5 empty IEC packets when a 256SPF EAC3 source is used (Confirmed by AV manufacturer debug). The code that currently combines the EAC3 frames can be seen here:
https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/49a04cd6a7f49ea9a0f05c492b11a3ba7c542a99/xbmc/cores/AudioEngine/Utils/AEBitstreamPacker.cpp#L311

I'm a C++ amateur but was hoping someone could help me understand this. As far as I can tell the current implementation will passthrough blank audio frames whilst building up the needed 6 frames for 256SPF DD+ which does line up with the diagnosis seen by the the AVR manufacturer. I tried moving the EAC3 buffer to DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp using the recent TrueHD changes as a guide but whilst this did not break it, it did not help either. I think the buffering of DD+ packets needs to happen nearer to the Videoplayer but am struggling to understand the full chain. Should I be looking to buffer these packets in VideoPlayerAudio.cpp?

I may be able to help you with the code but unfortunately I'm no expert on the specific audio format it self. A working example of a short audio stream might help as a starting point.

Thanks, here is a sample MKV with 256SPF DD+ 5.1 Audio:

If it bitstreams correctly or not will depend on your receiver. Most Denon/Marantz work (But not all) alot of other brands will fail. It all depends if the receiver will tolerate 5 consecutive blank audio packets without trying to re-lock.


RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Boilerplate4U - 2021-11-19

We've got an Onkyo TX-SR608 that support most codecs using pass through up to DTS-X/D and Atmos. I'll test the sample file when I get home sometime early next week. 

EDIT: are you able to create a sample file that fails as well?


RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Krobar - 2021-11-19

The file provided will work for some receivers and not others. Here is a a compatability list that I got partly from my own hardware and from a lot of people who kindly tested on AVS:
Arcam AV40 - Kodi 18 March 1st - Broken
Arcam AV40 - MPC HC - OK
Onkyo TX-SR805 - Kodi 18.5 - Broken
Onkyo TX-SR805 - PowerDVD 19 - OK
Marantz AV8805 - Kodi 18 - OK
Marantz AV7705 - Kodi 18.5 - OK
Denon AVP-A1HD3D - Kodi 18.2 - OK
Denon AVR-X1300W - Kodi 18.5 - Broken
Denon AVR-X1300W - Kodi 16.1 - OK
Denon AVR-X1300W - Win 10 Media Player - OK
Datasat RS20I - Kodi 18.5 - Broken
Emotiva XMC-2 - Kodi 18.4 - Broken
Anthem MRX750 - Kodi 18.5 - Broken
Arcam AVR750 - Kodi 18.5 - Broken

As you can see the older Onkyo 805 fails but is your newer 608 able to handle that file when bitstreamed? (All receivers work when it is decoded to PCM)


RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Boilerplate4U - 2021-11-24

Hi, fails on my Onkyo TX-SR608 using Kodi 19.3 on Win10 although I'm not sure about the root cause considering all the errors below: "WARNING <general>: ActiveAE - large audio sync error". Do you get the same?  

Maybe OT but a very strange side effect is that this also ruin my WASAPI interface from time to time. When I try to play another video there is no sound at all and the playback freezes after about 10 seconds. I need to restart Kodi to fix it.

Thanks for looking at this. I assume it works fine if you do not output bitstream and let it decode to 5.1 PCM?

I will collect another error log tomorrow and see if I get the same sync errors.


RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Boilerplate4U - 2021-11-24

Transcoding using HDMI DIRECTSOUND works. I don't know if it's by design but using passthrough the sound is always delayed with about 2-4 seconds but with transcoding it appears immediately.

RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Krobar - 2021-11-25

Have made a small amount of progress. If I change the threshold variable from 100 to 600 in cores/AudioEngine/Engines/ActiveAE/ActiveAE.cpp it is possible to get sound with bitstream output. I have to start the video, turn off audio passthrough and then turn it back on which results in getting sound about 80% of the time with a consistent DD+ lock on my receiver (So severe dropouts but much better than no sound/lock at all). 
The log then looks a bit like this (Large audio sync errors are gone):

RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Boilerplate4U - 2021-11-25

Great progress! Regarding passthrough, I've got similar problem with WASAPI when I switch between window mode and full screen.  When the problem occur I ​have to start the video in window mode, toggle passthrough and then switch back to full screen. There's something fishy with Kodi but what..

Btw, I tested with both the old and new media player in Win10 and the Leawo Bluray Player without any problems. 

Is there a way one can capture the audio output and save it to a file?


RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Boilerplate4U - 2021-11-25

This is what happens when WASAPI fails. I have seen this reported in the forum as: no sound and the video freezes after 8-10 seconds. I'll have a look at what has changed in the past when it comes to the sound layers/sinks, which can also be the reason why the empty sound frames are produced.

Btw, might be a bit late to ask but what is the main objective here, as in get rid of the blank audio frames, convert it to something else or?

RE: DVDAudioCodecPassthrough.cpp - Audio Frames to HDMI Audio Frame/Packet ratio - Krobar - 2021-11-25

HDMI requires that EAC3 packet be combine to a total of 1536 Samples Per Frame. Source media can be 256, 512, 768 or 1536 SPF with 1536 SPF being by far the most common (Which requires no packet combining at all). The sample I provided is the most extreme 256SPF case so 6 audio samples from the source file need to be combined into one HDMI audio packet.

My current thinking is the existing mechanism to combine these packets is being done in the wrong place, if we combine the DD+ frames much nearer to FFMPEG then we wont generate blank audio frames. I dont understand the synching yet either but my thoughts are if the audio packets rate is decided with knowledge of the SPF it can be effectively set 6 times lower for 256SPF and then the timing problems will probably fix themselves. The other thing I don't quite understand is how you deal with the PTS offset when your combined HDMI audio frame is a combination of 6 audio frames from different PTS time stamps, do you use the timing of the first frame or the last frame?.

Is the source file actually 5.1 16/44 or 5.1 24/44? My receiver can play 5.1 24/44 PCM content but I'm not sure if support for that is universal.

Edit: Are any other audio apps or potential WASAPI audio applications running?

Ok, thanks for a good explanation. I need to get into the details to be able to understand and put this into practice. In other words, it's now time to study the knowledge of audio technology at the advanced level and dig into the source code. 
 
Quote:Edit: Are any other audio apps or potential WASAPI audio applications running?

No, checked that several times. it's probably a bug when InitializeExclusive is called even though it's already been initialized. It needs to be released before calling it again. I'll look in to it later on.
