So, I have a raspberry pi 3B+ with a hifiberry digi+.
I have connected the S/PDIF output to my receiver (DTS and DD capable).
The OSMC automatically detected the hifiberry and I was able to select it as audio output in the configuration. I enabled the passthrough options as I want my receiver to do the work.
Audio is reaching my receiver as I have 2 channel sound from the S/PDIF output on the receiver. The problem is, i have no DTS nor DD audio. Neither DD nor DTS videos are in 5.1 channels. The video files reports the 6 channels correctly, but only stereo get’s to the receiver. Kodi logs:
To get a better understanding of the problem you are experiencing we need more information from you. The best way to get this information is for you to upload logs that demonstrate your problem. You can learn more about how to submit a useful support request here.
So, in summary:
activate the logging
reboot the OSMC device
reproduce the issue
upload the log set either using the Log Uploader method within the My OSMC menu in the GUI or the ssh method invoking command grab-logs -A
publish the provided URL from the log set upload, here
Thanks for your understanding. We hope that we can help you get up and running again shortly.
Disabling “Sync playback to display” did it. Now I have DD and DTS passthrough although sound seems to get silent from time to time now and at some point during the playback sound directly stops and a lot of loud static noise.
Just to add more information, the “pauses” in the sound seems to be that the signal is interrupted and not getting to the receiver (the receiver DTS or DD display flickers and stops to detect the correct signal). After a few minutes and a few pauses, the sound stops and all I get is loud noise.
Hi Tom, it seems I am having a very similar issue like the post you just quoted. I have this “(the image is fine, just the sound that stops for a second or two, sometimes less, and then comes back)”. And then, eventually after a few minutes the full signal gets lost and i get only noise. It seems to be only a passthrough issue and disabling MMAL would not allow me to do passthrough so that fix won’t work to me. Will try to upload logs once I get home.
