I am running 2x RBP2 at two different locations. They are using OSMC, installed from the installer about 2 weeks ago to play a directory full of movie trailers. They both seem to be randomly losing audio. Sometimes they play for hours without error, sometimes a whole day, sometimes only minutes. I have combed over the logs and it is not always the same file that causes the audio issues. I turned on debug logging and by the time I noticed it had happened again, the log had grown to over 700MB. I can’t even open the log file. I’m turning off verbose components logging and will wait for the issue to occur again so I can upload a (hopefully) manageable log file. In the meanwhile, here are the stats:
Device: Raspberry Pi 2
Installation media: SDCard
Power Supply Type: CanaKit 2.5A USB Power Supply with Micro USB Cable specially designed for the Raspberry Pi 2 (UL Listed) (from this kit: http://www.amazon.com/CanaKit-Raspberry-Complete-Original-Preloaded/dp/B008XVAVAW)
Power specs: 2.5A
Peripherals: No peripherals. Wifi module may or may not be plugged in, but is not being utilized.
Storage Device: Approximately 2-3GB worth of movie trailers in 480p, 720p, or 1080p mov and mp4 files are stored on the SD card. They playlist is being created via an autoexec.py script I will post below. I believe the issue is completely unrelated to this script.
OSMC version: 2015.07-1
XBMC version: 15.1-RC1 Git:Unknown compiled Aug 7 2015.
Codecs: none purchased
Audio/Video Output: HDMI for both, passthrough disabled.
Overclocked: Default osmc install settings.

import os, xbmc def get_filepaths(global,local): file_paths =  for root, directories, files in os.walk(global): for filename in files: filepath = os.path.join(root, filename) file_paths.append(filepath) for root,directories,files in os.walk(local): for filename in files: filepath = os.path.join(root, filename) file_paths.append(filepath) return file_paths pl=xbmc.PlayList(1) pl.clear() full_file_paths = get_filepaths("/home/osmc/trailers","/home/osmc/localonly") for i in range(len(full_file_paths)): xbmc.PlayList(1).add(full_file_paths[i]) xbmc.Player().play(pl) xbmc.executebuiltin('xbmc.PlayerControl(RandomOn)') xbmc.executebuiltin('xbmc.PlayerControl(RepeatAll)')
This script creates a playlist out of all of the files in /home/osmc/trailers and /home/osmc/localonly. The trailers folder is a btsync shared folder that keeps folders of 3 separate pi’s synced with a central computer. The localonly is a folder to place trailers that only play at that specific location. (i.e. one location is getting a title that another location is not, I only want to play that trailer at the first location.) These are uploaded manually via sftp on a location by location basis.
Apart from the install of btsync and the autoexec.py script, the only thing non-standard on the install is a script that opens up a reverse ssh tunnel and forwards the ports for btsync and ssh to it, so I can access to troubleshoot even though the pi is behind a firewall. The script is very basic bash. If it doesn’t find pidof ssh it creates one. It is executed every 60 seconds by cron.
It should be noted that a third RBP model B is also running the setup without audio issues. Version: 2015.07-1 15.1-RC1 compiled Aug 7 2015
