Audio is working but I get it on both HDMI (my tv) and SPDIF (receiver with 5.1)
Now I have to turn down my TV audio when streaming from the Vero 4k
That is in my case a downgrade from the vero 1 where you could select Spdif or HDMI.
Can I aspect this will be fixed in the next update from osmc or kodi ?
No – I don’t think so; it’s the design of the SoC. If your receiver / TV supports control for audio by source; then you can disable audio on the TV. Can you clarify why you have to separate audio paths for your TV; maybe there is a workaround or better way to plan for this.
Of course if you are unhappy with this, I wouldn’t want you to feel this is a downgrade and you are more than welcome to return the unit for a full refund
You can’t blaim this on the TV , it just processes the audio that is coming in.
I need control on the audio out from the mediaplayer and it really suprises me that you can’t.
In my setup video is going through HDMI to the TV and audio is going to my reciever by spdif (I have no HDMI on my reciever).
Now I experience audio on the TV speakers and my dolby surround reciever at the same time.
Before I start a media player stream I have to mute the TV but that gives an annyoing on screen sign so I have to put down the volume instead.
I never had these problems witk the vero 1 because there was full control on the audio out.
So I can not expect a solution from Kodi or OSMC in the near future.
The only solution I can think off is blocking HDMI audio with some kind of filter device but I am afraid it will downgrade my video (or I need to buy a very expensive one).
Do you have any other ideas ?
I’m not blaming the TV for this one; I’m just explaining how the SoC operates. By default, audio will be sent to both the SPDIF and HDMI out. However; if the display is a DVI display, then we don’t send sound as this would cause problems.
Conversely, last year we had a problem with Vero 2 where one user couldn’t get sound, and only video. For this user, the issue was caused by a long HDMI cable which presented some problems with EDID reading. As it was embedded in the wall; it would have been quite an ask to tell him to change the cable so we had to come up with a work around. Because the EDID couldn’t be read properly; the device fell back to DVI (no audio) modes.
So this means that the SoC can be told not to send audio over HDMI; but usually this is reserved only for DVI monitors which don’t support audio.
It may be possible to leverage this to solve the problem. When I checked the Vero 4K kernel sources however; it doesn’t seem that setting IEEEMode changes audio mode anymore. So it needs further investigation.
Sorry for the auto dutch correction (something the tablet does).
I tried various kinds of sleep numbers until 100 but it still doesn’t execute with a reboot.
Can it be that I am doing something wrong ?
Everyone thanks for your suggestions but it still isn’t persitent on reboots.
@sam I can’t seem to find a difference in resolutions between OSMC and Kodi. During the boot cycle the tv gets twice a new signal and says it is 1920x1080 @60hz.This is also the setting in system under the kodi settings. Everywhere I look on system information it says it is 1920x1080 @60hz.
