Happening to me also on a Samsung TV.

I had same problem with LG tv, (offical 3.2) just suddenly stopped working. Happened while I watching something, I notice because I couldnt bring up the gui.

I rebooted and I did a hard reset on TV and still wouldnt work. Changed HDMI port on tv and it started working again.

I have tried it with my Raspberry model B, and Yamah AMP connected via HDMI and albums now play as if listening to the original CD from my CD player!
I personnall would like it on by default.... lol but then I would, but it should be in there as an option to enable. I could not find this documented
on the RPI site/forum, it has taken me since last September to get this going, as I did not assoicate the issue with montiors or popping sounds lol.

Again I would like to thank Popcronmix for suggesting this in another thread I posted in. I am sooo so happy with openelec 3.1.6 now.

Maybe. It needs testing. It may well cause problems when dts/ac3 passthrough is enabled.
But can anyone who's interested in this please add the config.txt option, and report back if it's good.

Hi Popcornmix,

tested it out in my config.txt, cause if i used the 30 sec or 10 min standard jump mode in a mkv (mostly TV Series) i had a resync Problem of Picture and sound thats gone worse, everytime i push the 30 sec forward Button... in some cases after 3-4 jumps, i had 1,5 or 2 gap between Picture and Sound in a TV-Show.

Now with:
hdmi_force_open=1 (the idea from JAVABOYUK)
hdmi_force_edid_audio=1 (my own editing to force DTS/DD put through Receiver)

... there are no resync issues ever! I can jump forward and backward and Picture and Sound are always equal!
Great Tip and works for my Installation (RASP ->HDMI to -> TV then -> HDMI to Receiver)

Greetz,J.

OK some feedback after more testing...

Alas with the
hdmi_force_open=1
With 3.1.6 and still with 3.2 on my Raspberry PI, I find if I "jump" to the next song or skip forward in the song my raspberry will loop playing the "current" 1/4 second of music and you have to reboot the PI to stop this, unplugging and plugging th HDMI does not fix it, and nor does trying to stop, play another track etc work. However I can still reboot the PI.

(Note I am controlling the PI vi the XBMC remote controller on my iPhone over wifi.)

So looks like a firmware/driver issueHuh
Any suggestions who I can talk to about this, happy to help.

I'm still having problems with my tuner/tvheadend.

It was working fine when I used it last night, from a cold boot and had done so for several days before, with me plugging in the hub and usb tuner first, then the RPi.

This morning, I got the error again when trying to start TV, so I unplugged everything, took the USB tuner out of the hub in case it needed to discharge and plugged it back in, re-powered the hub then the RPi and still had the same problem http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=61346

So I shutdown again, moved the USB tuner to a different port on the hub, which has helped before for some reason, re-powered and this time I didn't get the error but TV didn't start either and when I selected the same channel and tried to start it again, XBMC locked up completely. http://xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=61348

EDIT: After a further reboot via SSH it's working again now.
I have found most of the more recent gotham builds to be flaky.
- I had a persistent startup problem with the most recent build: It would freeze on the XBMC splash screen. The only workaround I found was to killall xvmc.bin. deleting guisettings may have helped initially, as it booted ok with no guisettings file. Subsequent boots froze again, however;
- every build I tried since august has messed up the video calibration (the widths of interface elements are distorted) between restarts and has to be manually corrected.
- since people have mentioned CEC issues, I was having CEC trouble with many gotham builds throughout August, but this seemed to be resoved with the mid-september build.
- generally less stable.

I am, again, back with the July 7 build. Some features are definitely slower, but it is the most reliable Gotham build I have used.

I'm using MythTV PVR Client with Ubuntu MythTV 0.25.2.15 running on the backend and an HDhomerun Dual Tuner.

Any recommendations for the popping?

BTW, I do not see a commercial skipping option in the XBMC GUI. How is that interface supposed to work? I'm not using a keyboard for my RPi, just the xbmcRemote App for iPhone.

Thanks for any info or recommendations,

I tried hdmi_force_hotplug=1 as well as hdmi_force_edid_audio=1 but neither of them helped with the loud popping while muted.
Hmm.. Looks like all Add-on's are gone (can't see many), when I make a new Gotham install :-( OpenELEC-RPi.arm-Rbej-Version-Gotham-Branch(11.09.2013).tar.bz2
The same image, worked yesterday, with no problems ?!?

I have never had any popping, using mythtv/hdhomerun with various 3.1.x builds. RPi is plugged into TV via HDMI, and TV plugged into receiver via toslink (optical) cable.

Off your topic, but is your RPi networked wired or wireless?

Thanks for the reply. Any advice on how I should go about helping resolve this? I'm a kernel module developer professionally, but its been in wireless drivers and the network stack. I have not looked at Sound/Video drivers.
smanders, I don't have any particular insight into the issue. My only thoughts are that you might try connecting directly to the TV to see how that goes. I assume you are using HDMI passthrough so that the end device decodes audio?

Would you mind answering my question? Is your RPi networked wired or wireless? I can't get decent playback of Myth recordings by wireless on the RPi. Frequent buffering.

Hmm "XBMC Version Check" and other says at start up, that Add-on' has broken repository, when I install the lasted Gotham build (11-09-2013) from Rbej.
Anyone have an idea ? And I can't find many Add-on's anymore.


Best regards
Why are there so few Gotham builds ? Have they gone into a freeze period for the GSOC 2013 changes ?
Running airplay in this frodo build?
iOS 7.0 is broken in Frodo and Gotham.
