Latest LibreElec on Intel NUC and audio

  • Would someone please explain how/where to execute the code above while in LibreElec?

    Can you try this alternative solution: https://forum.libreelec.tv/cor…ard-regression-9-2-9-2-1/


    In your BIOS, disable "HD-Audio DSP" as it's not required (won't be used by LibreELEC) and is in fact the reason why the audio is misconfigured in the kernel (which then has to be fixed by blacklisting the unwanted DSP driver that the BIOS option has enabled).

    Where do I access that BIOS change? Looking all through my LE and Kodi Settings.

    Sorry, you should be able to access the link now - it includes a photo of the BIOS option.


    The BIOS is the firmware built into your PC - if it's an Intel NUC then you should be able to access it using F2 as the device boots.


    milhouse , I was able to make the fix using your first suggestion running "PuTTY". Thank you.

    Yes, ssh (PuTTY) is the way to add the blacklist. However at this time the preferred option would be to disable the BIOS option as it's that setting which is causing the problem in the first place, and blacklisting as the second best choice. But whatever works! :)

  • Hello Milhouse!


    I don't have the "HD Audio DSP" option in the BIOS of the NUC's nor in the BIOS of a Dell and an ASRock Mainboard.


    But...

    To Blacklist the device worked...


    Thank you Milhouse!

    worked on my NUC7PKYH2

    Thanks!

  • To anyone affected by the NUC audio issue:


    could you please drop your current workarounds (i.e. re-enable DSP support in BIOS or delete the modprobe blacklist file) and test if this build works?

    LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-9.2-devel-20200320214349-16919f7.tar


    This is LibreELEC 9.2.1 plus the proposed fix (default snd_soc_skl blacklist) alsa-lib: add modprobe.d file to work around NUC audio issues by HiassofT · Pull Request #4260 · LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv · GitHub


    If we get confirmation that this works we'll add it to LibreELEC and create a new official build with the fix.


    so long,


    Hias

  • In order to try the fix how would I remove the "blacklist" used from this command?


    Code
    echo "blacklist snd_soc_skl" > /storage/.config/modprobe.d/blacklist-snd-soc-skl.conf

  • Confirmation that Hias' lastest developer release works for the Intel NUC6CAYH. I now have audio passthrough etc. without changing BIOS settings or doing anything else. Simply copied his tar file into Libreelec's Update folder and rebooted. Many thanks!


    Audio passthrough problems fixed in LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-9.2.2

  • Thanks for this thread.


    I was pulling my <filament like structures coming out of my head> out installing LE on a NUC7i5BNK and was about to follow up to this old thread when I found this. I was installing LE on the NUK, having finally just given up on AMLogic devices being stable, even if they are the current best path forward for HDR. They just won't stop randomly crashing for me playing video - problems I've never had with an Intel based Kodi box.


    (and really? the common word for the filaments that grow out of my head is a censored word on this forum?)

  • If we remove the word from our anti-spam list we get lots of nice chinese/korean people advertising their solution for preventing the mail loss of filament structures that come out of your head. The occasional user inconvenience is easier to live with than regular spam deleting.
