Sound problems after update

Hello forum,

I moved to OSMC/Kodi18 with OSMC/Kodi17, now I have the problem that it loud in the speakers crack when a music App/Radio starts.

Previously, I did not have this problem with Kodi17, with the video apps/media libraries the problem does not exist.

My sound card on the Raspberry Pi 3+ is a Hifiberry AMP 2


dtoverlay = hifiberry-dacplus-overlay
dtparam = audio = off

This is how it works under OSMC Kodi 17 without problems

Someone an idea, a defect is probably ruled out, since it works. But would like to switch to Kodi 18, because the update brings a lot of speed, feels more fluid.

I’ve already googled, similar problems were there before without significant solutions.


Hallo Forum,

bin mit OSMC/Kodi17 auf OSMC/Kodi18 umgezogen, jetzt habe ich das Problem das es laut in den Lautsprechern knackt wenn eine Musik App/Radio startet.

Vorher hatte ich dieses Problem mit Kodi17 nicht, bei den Video Apps/Mediatheken ist das Problem nicht vorhanden.

So läuft es unter OSMC Kodi 17 ohne Probleme.

Jemand eine Idee, ein defekt ist wohl auszuschließen, da es ja läuft. Würde aber gerne zu Kodi 18 wechseln, weil das Update doch einiges an Geschwindigkeit bringt, läuft gefühlt flüssiger.

Habe schon gegoogelt, ähnliche Probleme gab es schon früher ohne nennenswerte Lösungen.

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

  • 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.
