I have an odd behaviour with OSMC with Kodi 19.1 on my rpi3.
Right after booting up, sound is working fine. Kodi menu click sounds are there, I can stream and hear music via raspotify and I can start movies and audio with passthrough is working just fine.
But once I started a movie playback and then stop/end the playback, there is no more sound… no menu click sounds, I can no longer hear music streamed via raspotify. If I start another movie, audio is working fine again, with passthrough. But when I stop it again, no audio…
What I tried:
in the settings → system → audio menu changing eg the feature “keep audio device active” restores audio directly, right afterwards click sounds are back, raspotify playback works (but just until next movie playback ends). I tried off, 1min, 2min, always
settings → system → audio → enable/disable output inaudible signal makes no difference
as I read something regarding joystick and controller support interfering with this audio stuff, I deactivated drivers and peripherals for joystick, mouse and controllers, but with no effect
Any further ideas? It is not that I couldnt live without those click sounds, but also other audio output (except movie playback) doesnt work. So would make sense to get this fixed
It is a fresh Kodi 19.1 on OSMC install, my old OSMC with latest Kodi 18 works normal without this bug. It is the same hardware, just a new SD card.
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.
Depending on the used skin you have to set the settings-level to standard or higher, in summary:
enable debug logging at settings->system->logging
reboot the OSMC device twice(!)
reproduce the issue
upload the log set (all configs and logs!) 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.
Unfortunately there are no readable audio capabilities of the connected HDMI device in the logs but the first thing I suggest to change is to set GUI → settings → system → audio → output configuration → best match instead of optimized.
While playback is running no menu sounds are played,I set that in the audio settings, actually it is also default. But my problem arises onve I stop the playback, so not pause, but really stop the playback and close the movie.
