OpenELEC Testbuilds for RaspberryPi Part 2

No, /var/log/messages has been replaced by journalctl with the change to systemd in OpenELEC 4.0.

I've only got the Pi hooked up via HDMI to my LG monitor which has a stereo line-out so not passthrough for me.

It happens while playing normally.

LG IPS225 monitor - it's been fine up until this build (although I didn't really test the previous build that heavily with respect to audio)

No indicators for that.

(2013-11-25, 15:06)popcornmix Wrote: Does it occur with all files? Anything in common with files that chirp? (i.e. sampling rate, coded, number of channels)

I've noticed it with my Blade Runner film (VC1, DD5.1) that used to play fine. I've also noticed it with DTS (5.1), and Flac (stereo).

I'll have to work through that and get back to you, hopefully later today/tonight.

I followed this tutorial and I'm not sure anymore that it works...

That method never worked. Follow this method.
