Hi, hope it's the right thread to ask: I use my xbmc box for playing audio as well (squeezeslave). Recently I installed brutefir and have totally fallen in love with the sound! Is there any chance audioengine could decode all my movie audio and presenting the resulting channels to jackd, so I can feed them to brutefir and output them als lpcm over hdmi into my receiver again?

Is that to weird or is there a chance?

This is a feature I would love as well though I only use xbmc on my pc.

I have been using a minidsp for room correction in the bass freq and it is a big improvement (I have measured it with Room EQ Wizard and calibrated mic) but I can't help but feel like the additional AD/DA stage is a compromise I don't really need and brutefir would fix this for sure.

Not trying to bug you, just wanted to see if you had a chance to look at this. Thanks!

Patience - this is rather obscure (transcoding mono to AC3) - I have made a note on the to-do list.

Just checking on this again. Angel Thanks.

Hi there....

I just installed the XBMCbuntu-Version from this thread:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=134252

I took the Version 2 and I won´t get any HD-sound. Just a crashing noise from all speakers at the same time. Switching to a language with DD or DTS works fine and I get the normal movie sound.

I know that I had to post my xbmc.log. Gonna do this tomorrow an I hope some of you can spend me some time to get some help.

Note: I´m not a Linux-Guru and the one and another had to be explained for me Wink

What kind of infos do you need, so I can get some help?

- xbmc.log
- aplay -L ?!?!

what else?

Greetings from germany

Hi there...

I got some logs:

XBMC.log:

aplay -l:

Hope that might help

I get the information, that I have got the 295.40 NVidia driver version (from the NVIDIA X Server Settings GUI). Might it help to downgrade the driver to 290.X?

How can I do this?

Thanks an greetings
David

Edit:

I forgot....I downloaded the 290.10 version already. But I don't know how to install or replace it.

Code:
wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/290.10/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.10.run
sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.10.run

you also need to enable debug logging before posting a log.

Thanks....

got another Problem now

BTW...debug logging is enabled but no rebbot after that. Is that important?

My new problem is, that I had to stop the X-server to install the new "old" driver.

I did that by switching via strg+alt+F1 to a console and type:

lightdm stop

Then I do this:

chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.10.run

and than I ran the .run file

Everything works fine and after exiting the installer I won't get back to the desktop. Even "lightdm start" won't help.

Take a look at this thread:

http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=135471

If I try to start XBMC by typing "XBMC" I get the error:

cannot connect to X-server

echo $DISPLAY throws out an empty line

I don't know how to go on now.

Try to install another graphic driver (295.53) didn't help. I thought it could be caused by the wrong driver

So my status now is...I have the new/old driver installed, but I can't start XBMC to see if AE works Wink

I replied in your other thread, check your X log at /var/log/Xorg.0.log to see why X is failing. Once you know that, you can work on the actual problem (what's causing X to fail) rather than the symptom (X is failing).

Hi there.

I got this managed and installed the 290.10 driver.

But still no HD-Audio

Here is the newest XBMC.log (with debug-log enabled):

the current aplay -l:

All the other Audio-Files (DTS, DD, Stereo, Menu Sound) works fine. But still got the noise (very similiar to the "white noise") while playing hd-audio content.

Maybe it's important...my XBMC is plugged via hdmi to a Rotel RSP 1570 pre-amp and then to a JVC D-ILA X3 beamer. If I play a file with hd-audio content, the pre-amp displays "multichannel" an not DTS HDMA or anything else.

Thank you for helping

what nvidia card? from the log it looks like you're running an ION system which doesn't support HD audio.

Uh, since when? It works in Eden just fine. Are you speaking about AE only?

not sure how that could be since eden didn't have support for any HD audio. from all i've read ION2 supports dts-hd and truehd, but not ION1.

One of my XBMC's is running Eden 11.0 on an ION 1. Unfortunately the amp it's connected to doesn't support HD audio. However, I just played a movie with DTS/MA as the only audio program. The amp showed "DTS Surround" and played through all 5.1 speakers perfectly. So *something* was doing the conversion from DTS/MA to DTS. Thus the confusion. My XBMC connected to an amp that does support HD audio still isn't working right - so I'm trying to figure that one out.
