Audio clock is still working okay for me. If you switch back to "audio clock" is it still broken?
I wonder if somehow it wasn't actually on "audio clock", but was just displaying that as it had internally got an invalid setting?

i'll give it a try, i've never used audio clock before, is there any advantage over video clock?

Hi again,

with the new config still the same. Noisy sound in xbmc.

my asound.conf at the moment
Code:
pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
    device 0
    format s32_le }

as i unstand. the line e.g "format s32_le" in asound.conf says the DAC can only handle 32 bit audio, is that right?

The xbmc.log shows the following (for safety rebooted after editing asound.conf)

Code:
21:34:50 211.642441 T:3058901536  NOTICE: Enumerated ALSA devices:
21:34:50 211.642578 T:3058901536  NOTICE:     Device 1

21:34:50 211.643631 T:3058901536  NOTICE:         m_dataFormats     : AE_FMT_S24NE4,AE_FMT_S32NE,AE_FMT_S16NE,AE_FMT_S16LE

I think when xbmc use the asound.conf the line with "m_dataFormats" should only contain "AE_FMT_S32NE" because we force to use "s32_le" or not?

I've not discerned the difference between "sync video to display" disabled and "sync video to display" enabled with audio clock.

I think "sync video to display" enabled with "resample" is the best option for smooth video and decent audio when using dvdplayer.
I've been experimenting with "PLL adjust" as a new sync method which appears to work well for some files (and avoids resampling). Still experimental rather than recommended for now.
With that config, (testing S16 and S32) both my sample and other sounds are noise in xbmc? That is disappointing.

I don't know where the 'AE_FMT' names are coming from... Ah - quick web-search turns up AudioEngine, which popcornmix mention in earlier post.

Was that log sample from when you had S16_LE or S32_LE in the config file? (Three formats have 'NE' on end, only one has 'LE')

It is also curious that xbmc says 'Device 1', but that could just be a counting thing.
Yes i in all my tests i dont hear a clear sound in xbmc.

Here is a debug log with different files. All files sounds noisy.

I could only play your test sample via aplay without asound.conf or with a asound.conf that contains
Code:
pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
    device 0
    format s24_le }
Well, I am convinced that the problem is not in the driver or DAC hardware. But my hope for a work-around using config file is not playing out - it seems xbmc is ignoring it or not seeing it. I don't know...

You have also reached the limits of my knowledge - popcornmix or someone else with more knowledge of xbmc's audio processing will have to take things from here. I suspect the noise problem is not in xbmc per se, but in some lower level component (used by other software packages too) which may complicate getting it fixed.

The recently posted build has 24 bit support disabled in the driver for your hifiberry-dac (even though that is not the problem), which side-steps the issue by hiding that particular capability of the card for ALL owners & uses.

Thank you for working with me to pin the problem down as far as we did. Good luck!

Debug log using the new CECStandbyRender patch. Problem persists: after a few hours(?) UI gets stuck at 2fps. Unusable...

There's a bunch of CecLogMessage and CecStandby in the debug log. Too many to paste here.

thanks for the log. it is the remaining libCEC bug with LG not regaining AS.
as there is still "vendor id" reestablishing the SL session - and keeps quiet during TV off, I will create the trigger on that one OpCode.

Looks to have fixed the issue. Again, many thanks for your continued efforts.

@h.udo

this would be it. https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-packa...lper.nouse

@Milhouse

keep first patch in place. add this one as new (order no important) or just add this as hunk at the end of original patch.
@mk01: Many thanks, will include it in the next build.

Look what it says Lambada Genesis

I've posted about it in this post

Common addon methods is a module developed by Eldorado and it is used in metahandler.

https://github.com/Eldorados/script.module.addon.common

It doesn't seem to be properly registered.
This may be a Helix bug, it may won't require an update by Eldorado.

Presumably you meant to link/quote this post?

It doesn't appear to be a Helix bug, rather this is by design and Eldorado needs to update his/her add-ons to make them compatible with Helix.

You might want to make lambda/Eldorado aware of PR5201 which introduced the change that Eldorado now needs to accommodate.
