New Vero2 - no sound

Hello everybody,

first of all, thank again for Vero2. Just received one day ago. Great look, great product except… sound.

I don’t have sound. I tried a lof of thing but impossible to hear something.
I tried the two emplacement for jack input, and I also tried linux command to sacn pci ou usb bus, but impossible.

So do you have a idea to fix this ?

Thank.

Regard.

How are you trying to play audio? Currently, Kodi is only outputting sound via HDMI. Android supports Analog. I will soon look at adding support for Analog audio to Kodi (a few days).

Sam

Yes of course, I read some movies from my synology NAS.
So with my omcs on raspberry pi, I have no problem with sound with jack cable.

But with Vero2, nothing.
And why there is no indication on the box for the 2 jack input or output ??

Regard.

Please change this thread from “Raspberry Pi” to “Vero2” forum… thank. I made a mistake.:confounded:

I don’t fully understand the question.

The jack is actually an RCA output (it can provide composite video up to 576p and two channels of audio). If you’re trying to use this, it will be a few days until we get Analog audio running. HDMI will work fine for now however.

I tried to connect Vero2 to a computer screen no a TV.

So I have a HDMI to vga converter for the picture.

For the sound, I made the same thing like the raspberry pi : use a jack to connect the sound.

You may need an RCA cable (like the Pi 2 cable). I will announce on the update when we add audio support via Analog for Kodi.
Sam

Yes I use the same cable (headphone jack) like I used in my raspberry pi 2 (which is working fine).

So you said that Kodi is not supported Analog…!

Strange because I used Kodi on Raspberry pi (1 and 2 ) with Kodi 15 and Kodi 16RC3, and no problem with Analog.

You must said with “Analog is not suported with Vero2” …no ?

Analog works on Android and most applications.

Analog will very soon work on Kodi and on OSMC on the whole. We need to work on ALSA

Hello,

do you some fresh news about the analog problem ?

Thank you.

Regard.

The latest kernel and Kodi build should handle analog audio without issue

We will push it to release when we are happy with it

Sam

Ok, just because you said that you’ll send me a way to do it (before the official release)…

Regard.

You can already update via the staging repository, but that’s not recommended unless you know what you are doing

Sam

Ah, and do you have the ppa:<ppa_name> ?

And the update 'll come this week maybe ?

Regard.

ps : is there a way to reitinialize the Vero2…? I can’t find doc about this :confused:

You can reinstall from OSMC.tv/download

You can reinstall from OSMC.tv/download

Yes I know that, but how to put image on the internal memory ?? The documentation say nothing about that.

Thank you very much.

You can write the image to an SD card. Just follow the instructions in the installer.

The update will come this week.

And from sd card we can reinstall osmc on vero2s internal storage??

Hello,

can we have some fresh news ?
3 weeks after received Vero2, we have’nt audio, and we can’t not use this official OSMC box.

But you promize a build, a update, a repository, … and … nothing.

The solution to watch a movie is to buy a Raspberry pi 3 and put Vero2 in trash ?

I’m very sorry to insist like this, but you are not really specific.

Can you fix this problem now, really ?

Thank you for your help.

Regard.

Hi

I was traveling from Friday to Sunday and haven’t had much of a chance to catch up on things.

We had an Analog build which was working with some success, but didn’t push it in this month’s update because it wasn’t completely stable.

If you want to try a new build (wait an hour or so for the CDN to synchronise), then run:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
  • Change ‘jessie’ to ‘jessie-devel’
    Run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vero2-mediacenter-osmc

Then edit /usr/share/alsa/cards/SOC-Audio.conf to:

#
# Configuration for Amlogic M8 Audio
#

<confdir:pcm/front.conf>

SOC-Audio.pcm.front.0 {
	@args [ CARD ]
	@args.CARD { type string }
	type hw
	card $CARD
	device 0
	format S16_LE
}

<confdir:pcm/iec958.conf>

SOC-Audio.pcm.iec958.0 {
	@args [ CARD AES0 AES1 AES2 AES3 ]
	@args.CARD { type string }
	@args.AES0 { type integer }
	@args.AES1 { type integer }
	@args.AES2 { type integer }
	@args.AES3 { type integer }
	type hooks
	slave.pcm {
		type hw
		card $CARD
		device 1
		format S16_LE
	}
	hooks.0 {
		type ctl_elems
		hook_args [
			{
				interface MIXER
				name "IEC958 Playback Default"
				lock true
				preserve true
				optional true
				value [ $AES0 $AES1 $AES2 $AES3 ]
			}
		]
	}
}

SOC-Audio.pcm.default {
	@args [ CARD ]
	@args.CARD { type string }
	type plug
	slave.pcm {
		@func concat
		strings [ "dmix:" $CARD ]
	}
}

Reboot, and reconfigure audio. We are still working on improving analog.
