Thanks for answers.

But in XBMC option "passthrough device" is greyed out and no sound in the movie. Interface sounds over HDMI are OK. When I connect my S/PDIF USB interface, then "passthrough device" is not greyed out and DTS sound in the movie is OK (over HDMI, not S/PDIF). I can even disconnect USB interface after starting XBMC and everything is OK. In summary: S/PDIF USB interface must be connected when XBMC is starting to get passthrough sound over HDMI. I was testing OpenELEC (live USB) - exactly the same problem. Delete ".xbmc" directory does not change anything.

Logs:
dmesg
xbmc.log
xbmc.old.log - S/PDIF USB interface connected
vdpauinfo
dpkg -l |grep mesa

It looks like problem with XBMC?

You have installed pulseaudio ... not subject of that howto.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
@mhop:
You can try whatever you want. This howto here shows a working way from a minimal setup to working xbmc. Other ways are existing, but I don't support in the context of this howto.

You already got your answer, but why not follow the howto then install xubuntu-desktop

@nickr: That will heavily interfer with the upstart script

@all: We just fixed the audio drop problem with AMD gpus. The cause was that the hdmi clock did not match exact enough the video clock.

I will post a new kernel tomorrow, where we will also switch to 3.12-rc5 + hd audio + lipsync preparation + audio sync fixes. This will introduce and upstart init script change, in order to get the audio enable with xrandr

Hi. I just installed Xubuntu 13.10. Do the instructions on the first page change at all, or do we still have to follow those instructions exactly?
@ beschmid -- be sure to post this on the freedesktop.org page -- https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=63997
you might have to create an account to post.

i'm not sure how much @fritsch can help with this one.
Linux Mint 18 LTS 64-bit - Kodi 17 Beta6
Odroid-C2 - Libreelec v7.90.009
@locomot1f: I just did. Do you know of any other support forums or bug reporting sites we can add to on this? I am not sleeping until I get this working Smile

@fritsch: When I enable Live TV my system freezes. Is there a log or any info I can provide you to troubleshoot this?

After removing pulseaudio problem has gone. Thanks! :-)
