A2dp output to HDMI?

Hi all,

I installed a2dp, and my phone pairs with the pi. All good so far.

The catch is that it only outputs to the headphone jack. I’ve selected the output to pi:HDMI, and I see the player and file info on the top right of the screen, but no audio via HDMI.

What am I missing?


Is the TV off when this happens?

Hi Sam, no the tv is on.

A log and screenshot of audio settings might help


Aye Captain…



I can give you ssh access via my dydns if that would be easier for you to explore directly?

That shows your home screen, but I can see your audio settings from logs.

Can you try selecting Pi Analogue and see what happens?
I doubt it will change anything, but it’s possible Kodi is somehow hogging the sink.


try amixer cset numid=3 2

May need to sudo apt-get install alsa-utils first

Pi: analogue makes no difference.

set amixer:

    osmc@osmc:~$ sudo apt-get install alsa-utils

osmc@osmc:~$ amixer cset numid=3 2
numid=3,iface=MIXER,name='Master Playback Volume'
  ; type=INTEGER,access=rw------,values=2,min=0,max=65536,step=1
  : values=2,2

Still no audio…

So if I set amixer cset numid=3 1 then I get audio from headphone jack, same story if I set amixer cset numid=3 0.

I have to turn up the volume in aslamixer.

BUT if I amixer cset numid=3 2, I get no output.

Any suggestions?

Unfortunately not — it works here, although I can appreciate this is not much help.

Got it working!

Must be a receiver quirk because if i add this to config.txt hdmi_force_edid_audio=1 it works!

That’s odd.

Your display may be detected as a DVI display instead or their may be a hotplug issue.
