Hi. I use Alpha 4 and Raspberry Pi 2.
I connected my USB external sound card to the pi and it was recognized in the System -> Audio Input menu. That is the good part.
Once I select one, the nice “click” sound when selecting menu items in kodi turns into an uncomfortable and short hiss-click sound. Sound in media files turns into the same intermittent clicks and hiss from the kodi menus and movies play at just a few frames per second. top shows that kodi is struggling with 100% CPU utilization (on one core).
Is there any log i can get you that can help solve this problem?
The sound card didn’t work in raspbmc either by the way.
