[WIP] AUDIO - 5.1 issue
#1
Hi,

My system :
- archlinux
- pulseaudio set on 5.1 HDMI (works with other players)
- latest kodi
- kodi set on PA device, 5.1 speakers,  no passthrough
- a yamaha receiver

So the issue :
When i play AAC 5.1, i get 5.1 sounds (  21:31:07.714 in the log)
When i play DTS/AC3, i get 3.0 sounds (21:32:18.879)

From what i see in the log, it switches from "Channel Layout: FL, FR, FC, LFE, SL, SR" to "Channel Layout: FL, FR" ?

Log : https://pastebin.com/uAYRdbLP

Bibi

Can someone help me ?

Why don't you read the wiki?  https://kodi.wiki/view/PulseAudio#Passthrough_Mode
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

I misread your "," in the above sentence, sorry for that.

Turn off adjust refreshrate and try again

Is bogus.

From kodi's log all fine:

Sink does what it should. start pulseaudio with debugging -vvv and see what you get. Other player for sure don't refreshrate switching - I think that while switching PA reconfigures the device and routes your stuff somewhere else.

It seems that enabling enable-remixing in pulseaudio settings made it works again (which is strange behavior)

Could you please check your pulseaudio log? If you need remixing then it means that it finds a very odd layout or something, so that it does not cope with kodi's standard mapping. This can be fixed by changing your PA config to include the channel configuration.
