since the October update, any movie or show I try to start that uses some sort of audio passthrough (usually DD+) starts with no audio. My AVR does not switch from the GUI stereo PCM to passthrough. When I wait long enough or when I mute/unmute, it sometimes works and then works for the whole show.
I am unable to reproduce a workaround, but the issue occurs consistently.
Here are my debug logs (removed DB password from advanced settings, but I guess that is a password the log uploader could remove itself ;)): https://paste.osmc.tv/odisoqiret
Another issue I observed is that when I start my AVR it does not switch to the OSMC input channel automatically (as before), but to TV Audio.
Look at the last lines: It only works when it falls back to PulseAudio, so pulseaudio has hijacked something here. I’m not too familiar with this, might be that @grahamh and/or @fzinken can help/explain more to this.
Ok, so I did apt-get remove --purge a2dp-app-osmc bluetooth bluez pulseaudio-module-bluetooth (it said there is no bluetooth package, but nevermind) and also apt autoremove to get rid of armv7-libass-osmc armv7-libnfs-osmc dh-python gnupg-agent libavcodec57 libavresample3 libavutil55 libbind9-140 libcdio13 libcryptsetup4 libdevmapper-event1.02.1 libdns162 libenca0 libevent-2.0-5 libfile-copy-recursive-perl libgdbm3 libicu57 libisc160 libisccc140 libisccfg140 libiso9660-8 liblvm2app2.2 liblwres141 libncurses5 libntfs-3g871 libperl5.24 libprocps6 libpython3.5-minimal libpython3.5-stdlib libsbc1 libssl1.0.2 libswresample2 libunistring0 libva-drm1 libva-x11-1 libva1 libvpx4 libwebpmux2 libx264-148 libx265-95 pulseaudio-module-zeroconf python-imaging python3-distutils python3-lib2to3 python3.5 python3.5-minimal update-inetd.
After a reboot the sound works as intended, so this is really nice!
I do not really use the bluetooth streaming these days, but of course it would be nice to have it back.
Thank you again for you help, this is an awesome project and one of the (perhaps the) best support experience I ever had!
