I use RPi 2 with OSMC, and I’m experiencing a peculiar audio issue. In Kodi, I set audio output to both HDMI and Analog, as I occasionally watch videos.
Whenever I start the RPi with no HDMI cable connected. the audio quality is really bad, like “canny” and hollow. No problems at all when the HDMI is connected from the start.
If i connect or disconnect the HDMI while the RPi is running, it hangs.
This goes for both MP3 and FLAC.
Is there any hidden setting for this? I want to be able to run my RPi with just the analog audio cable connected.
Have you tried setting /boot/config.txt to say that there is always HDMI connected, regardless of what it thinks is there - if you don’t then it will always select its own start config, which you may not like
