Do you use audio passthrough

  • Hello,


    I notice that in the audio configuration is audio passthrough option. I activate it. The only problem is that now the volume is not working with Kodi, it works with my TV remote.


    This is not a problem, I could map TV volumen with CEC in the remote.


    Is better to activate it? I want to know your experience with this.


    All my Libreelec devices send audio+video from HDMI to the TV, I have no dedicated audio amp.


    Kind regards.

    If you are using passthrough then kodi is sending the bitstream so the device (tv or amp) can decode it. Therefor kodi has no control over the volume.

    Thanks Irusak,


    I try it and I can not change the volume of the TV with CEC, I try this:


    Code
    echo "mute 0" | cec-client -s

    And it doesn't wotk.


    It works well to power on/off the TV:


    Code
    echo "on 0" | cec-client -s
    echo "standby 0" | cec-client -s


    How could I control the TV volume?


    Kind regards.

  • My receiver supports HD audio, but I just use PCM nowadays to be able to control the volume. There's zero difference as far as I can tell.

  • with the tv remote maybe?

    Thanks,


    Of course I can control with TV remote, but I just want to use one remote.


    I try with CEC command and it doesn't works.


    Regards.
