Kodi 21 on webos is practical unusable due to the A/V offset.
What is the status on fixing the issue and the release of a kodi 21.1 that works?

Thank you for the great software šŸ™šŸ˜Š

There is an sync bypass you can use, that works for me, or putting it on 60, but this is only with using external output like soundbar, i donā€™t have any sync problems with the tv sound outputā€¦

Hi, I wasn't using my TV for a month or so, dev mode disappeared. I had to reinstall it as well as Kodi. Is there a way to avoid this in the future? If so, how?

Can you give a little detail on how that is configured?

Yeah, I was very surprised to see this problem being there still. I have LG OLED G3 TV, running webOS 8.3.0 (with firmware 03.30.74), and the Kodi version I installed first was Omega (20240606-9c2a48de). And yes, the audio/video unsync is present there very clearly, impossible to ignore. I tested many different videos that I have in my collection, from movies to TV shows and random short videos - all of them have this unsync issue when trying to play them in Kodi.

At the same time, none of the other applications installed on the TV have this problem. I tried YouTube, Twitch, Netflix, etc - all good. So it is really something "exclusive" to Kodi.

I probably could live with a manually specified audio offset, but as I soon discovered it needs to be adjusted for different videos, so while some are fine with 400 ms, others require changing it to 300 ms or a different value, which one can find only via trial-and-error, which kills all the joy and wastes a lot of one's time.

I did try to enable Audio Passthrough and with AC3 transcoding too, but that didn't help either, although I saw several users stating that it resolved the issue for them.

And then I tried to install the latest master version of Kodi (20240620-3d14ee65, to be precise), and in that one I noticed some more options in the Audio Passthrough section, so I enabled all of them, and good heavens that did help, so now I don't have the audio/video sync issue anymore. I am not sure which ones exactly did help, but it looks like all of them need to be enabled (so both the AC3 transcoding and the DTS things). Here's a photo of that settings section, just in case (sadly, couldn't make a proper screenshot - Kodi just captures a black screen for some reason, probably webOS doesn't let it to access window manager or something):

Does it work properly when pausing or scrobbing forward or reverse?

While using v21 stable I don't have av sync issues but as soon as I scrob forward or reverse the av goes out of sync

Oh yes, it pretty much does struggle with that. So once I jump to a different part of the movie, it takes some seconds to catch up and "normalize", and after that it plays fine. But if I do this way too often, Kodi eventually freezes and crashes.

Also, I was too early to celebrate and pronounce that the unsync issue was resolved by allowing Audio Passthrough, because some videos still have quite bad sync issues (probably depends on audio codec? One video in particular had AAC-LC).

And even those videos that I thought are fine now - there is still a very-very little but noticeable unsync, like 50 ms or less. I mean, without Audio Passthrough enabled the unsync is very bad, so allowing it does improve the situation significantly, but unfortunately does not eliminate it completely.

I don't know, I guess I'll have to abandon the idea of running Kodi on the TV and just get a proper external box, such as Vero V or some other.
Too bad, the happiness was so close Smile

Hello,
I'm using latest nighty xbmc.kodi_20240620-3d14ee65-master_arm.ipk
have all passthrough boxes checked, output channels 2.0 on kodi and HDMI ARC set to passthrough on TV, and have literally no sound on any of supported formats except PCM.
Maybe I'm repeating, sorry for the lack of time, but did not found solution or normal explanation in forum.

TV: LG B9
Soundbar: Samsung Q70R

Have coreelec box connected to the same setup, where all formats are working on soundbar and TV speakers + Atmos (TrueHD).
Can someone give any tips, or at least explanation why it's not working and is there planned fix in future if possible?
Thank You.

PS: Kodi works like a charm but no sound Sad

Screenshots: Kodi settings

Copy the settings from the screenshots. It works perfectly on my LG CX (AAC-LC too). It should work on the G3 aswell.
If you want to fast-forward or rewind the video. Stop it first. Then the audio will not be delayed when you resume.

Hi
I found the userdata folder for my Kodi install on my LG wevOS. I can only access it with the webOS Dev Manager app.
Has anyone had any luck getting permission to add anĀ advancedsettings.xml file or any other files?
In case anyone was wondering where I found it it's inĀ /media/developer/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.xbmc.kodi/.kodi

It's very similar to Android in this regard.

On a non rooted TV you have to use Kodi's inbuilt file manager to gain access to the userdata folder.
