Hey everyone,

I've been looking for a solution to this problem, but I keep on finding unrelated topics. So excuse me if this is a duplicate.

I'm using Kodi 17.0-Beta6 on Windows 8.1. When I use the keyboard for navigation I can hear the GUI sounds, but these don't work when I'm using a controller. I tried downloading different GUI sound addons, but none work with the controller. It should be irrelevant what controller I use, but I tried MS controller (Xbox) and DS3 (Playstation), so we can rule that out.

Any help is appreciated. Wish you all a happy new year!

Cheers,
Mud

There's an option to load in different joystick profiles, so it must make some difference. I note the look & feel add-ons had GUI sounds for various, did you load one up? In the system audio settings, I did note a GUI 'play gui sounds' might want to change that to always. The system sounds are usually 'direct sounds' and might not be handled by HDMI waspi, just a few of the possibilities, perhaps a fix is in one of those?

Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately I've tried all of these to no avail. Changing controller profiles didn't have any influence, I already said I've tried different GUI sound addons, and the option in the menu is already set to always.

I'm seeing this very same issue. I believe this is a bug, so I've opened an issue here: http://trac.kodi.tv/ticket/17248

Same issue here. No GUI sounds using an XBox 360 controller in Windows 7 and Kodi 17.01 Krypton (I had sounds before updating, when using Jarvis). And I do hear sounds when using my keyboard. Just not with the controller.

Any updates on this bug? I see the bug ticket, but I have no idea to tell if anyone is working on a fix, or if it's on the radar. Really wanting my GUI sounds back after updating to Krypton.

Same here, But Im on a Nvidia Shield Tv using the Shield Wireless Controller, No sound. Tried downloading Aeon Nox 6 GUI sounds & Titan UI sound, But none work with the controller.

My wireless/bluetooth androind keyboard remote works & sound (Clicking & so on) works just fine.

EDIT: Im also using the latest Kodi 17 from the play store.

EDIT2: Just realised that Im not in the Android section... Sorry. Either way, This seems to be present in both because Im having the exact same problem.
