    And when might that be? Will the kernel be changed within the next LE 9.0.x or rather with LE 10 in 3 years?


    Currently LE9 works more like a beta on the Odroid C2. I can view exactly one video file with sound and have to reboot before playing the next one.

    I've been using CoreELEC since my last post and it's running smoothly. You should try it.

    Similar issue, same setup (Odroid C2, latest LibreELEC), except that in my case I'm having problems specifically with aac/mp4 files.


    Aac/mp4 videos play without sound. Aac/mp4 audio files (music) play without sound.


    Other formats, stereo or not, work fine.


    Anyway, so far, I've found 3 workarounds, but none of them is ideal.


    1-Play everything through the default/analog output. This doesn't affect passthrough signals, but plays music files through Odroid's DAC, which sounds considerably worse than my AVR's DAC.


    2-Enable "stereo upmix". This makes aac/mp4 play, but will upmix everything that doesn't passthrough, including my music files. Far from ideal, in fact, I'm yet to find any upmixing process that sounds good.


    3-Enable "stereo upmix", reduce number of channels to 2, enable "Dolby Digital Transcoding". When you reduce the number of channels to 2, a new option called "Enable Dolby Digital Transcoding" shows up under "Passtrough" settings. This allows video files encoded with aac/pm4 to be properly decoded by the AVR...Again, the downside is that music files are still processed by Kodi; They're not really upsampled, since there are just 2 channels selected, but are still being unpleasantly processed.


    To sum up, the problem boils down to playing music. Every one of the above workarounds "solves" the "video without sound" issue, specially option 3. However, in every one of them music quality is still being affected either by Odroid's DAC or Kodi internal processing.


    If you ask me, this is a bug.

    Have you tried CoreElec ?

    Similar issue, except that in my case I'm having problems specifically with aac/mp4 files. Other formats, stereo or not, work fine.


    And no, I haven't tried CoreElec. Lost my emmc>micro sd adapter, so unless there's another way to install it remotely, I'm stuck with LibreElec. Tried to place its image inside the update folder and restart, but it didn't update to CoreElec.

    Hey guys,

    So, I need some help here. I'm running KODI on the latest LibreELEC on Odroid C2.

    In KODI, I have two audio output devices which I can select:

    -ALSA: Default (AML-M8AUDIO, Analog)

    -ALSA: AML-M8AUDIO, HDMI

    Ideally, I always want to use my HDMI output because it then leaves all audio decoding tasks to my AVR (Denon s930h), which has a much better DAC (digital to analog converter) than my Odroid C2.

    Really, I'm not being picky here. The difference in audio quality is actually quite noticeable.

    The problem is, HDMI works most of the time, but it simply doesn't work with MP4 files.

    When this happens, if I change the output to Default (Analog), the audio comes back, but with reduced quality, since it gets decoded by C2 instead of my AVR.

    Anyway, my AVR should be capable of decoding pretty much anything, and I'm fairly sure it can decode MP4 files.

    Do you have any idea about what's happening? Maybe I'm missing some other configuration?


    Here's the log file. I try to play an MP4 movie via HDMI and there's no sound. Then I change to Default (Analog) and the sound comes back. Then change back to HDMI and no sound again.

    Thanks in advance for the help,

    M.

    If remote access from PC works, why do you think it's an LE problem?

    Well, I'm just asking for help.


    Maybe,most likely probably, someone has gone through the same problem and knows the solution.


    It doesn't necessarily mean I'm assuming it can only be a LibreELEC problem.


    It might be an Android problem, it might be a router problem, it might be a Kodi problem...Or a combination of variables. Who knows.


    All I know is that my setup has been working fine for months and suddenly there's this issue.


    Thank you for the very helpful reply.

    UPDATE: So, after changing ports it worked for a few hours and then the problem came back. Can't connect again.


    I don't know what to do guys...Is anyone going through the same issues?



    Thanks.

    Hey guys,


    Something weird happened.


    All of a sudden, either Kore or Yatse are unable to connect to LibreELEC.


    Yesterday everything was working just fine. Nothing changed, except for this issue.


    I've checked everything and can't find the problem. My phone is connected to the same network (obviously) and I can access LibreELEC remotely from my PC.


    i'm running the latest LibreELEC on Odroid C2, by the way.


    Could you give me a hand here?


    Thanks!:)


    UPDATE: I changed the connection port to 8081 on LibreELEC and both control apps and for some reason it's working now. Maybe something was causing conflict on the default 8080 port...Who knows...It's solved anyway.

    Hey guys, how are you?


    Well, I'd like to know why the default language for both audio and subtitles is German, and what should I do to:


    1- Make the default language whatever is the original one and make it always 6 channels.


    2- Change subtitles default status to ON and its language to Brazilian Portuguese.


    I'm very thankful for the addon, and it mostly works pretty great. This isn't such a big deal, but it can become annoying having to change language and subtitles each time you start a new show, specially if you're binge watching.


    By the way, I'd like to report a minor bug too: Brazilian Portuguese, which is coded as pt-BR, is named as Portuguese-BRETON, in the subtitles choice menu.


    Thank you very much,


    M.


    PS: I'm using the latest LibreElec (9.0.0) and the latest Netflix add-on (from the default Netflix repository)

    Hey guys,


    How are you?


    Well, I'm running the latest LibreELEC Beta on Odroid C2.


    Netflix is running pretty smoothly, but it doesn't "remember" my audio/video/subtitle settings, so each time I load a new movie or series episode, I have to setup everything manually again.


    I know this is a minor issue...Netflix is running fine, which is a great thing. However, it can become quite annoying.


    Is there any workaround to this?


    Thanks!

    Copy and paste to Pastebin. Then post the generated link.

    Here is the debug log link hastebin


    The logfile upload tool came back to life somehow.


    By the way, the song I'm trying to play is Door Number Two, by Walter Becker, from the Circus Money album...They're just regular Mp3 files, no fancy format. I have no idea why there's no sound coming through digitally via HDMI.


    The same thing happens with some movies as well.
