Kodi will not play back audio from DVD with PCM audio
#1
I have a Human League Music Videos DVD . I made a DVD9 backup of the disk. The backup plays fine in VLC and the disk plays fine in a DVD Player. 

When I launch the DVD image in Kodi the video plays back but audio does not play back. Going to Audio OSD menu says there are no audio tracks. 

The disk has only PCM audio there are no other tracks.

MediaInfo reports the following (from ripped VOBs) :

I checked the page at https://kodi.wiki/view/AudioEngine and it looks like PCM from a DVD should be supported.

Thanks

File an issue on GitHub with Debug Log and sample if possible.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

I don't have any issues with that DVD (The Human League - The Very Best Of). PCM track plays fine. Tested with Kodi master and 18.5.

Yeah as OP did not post any Debug Log - nothing we can do.

Is that a Region 1 NTSC release?

Did you try the DVD or files extracted from DVD?

There's only one rule and it's quite simple - if your device contains banned addons (wiki) then we don't support it...
