    Hello all,


    I am running the standard generic.x86_64 version of Librelec 9.2.2 on a CM60 Asus Chromebox. I have been running this version and previous versions on the same Chromebox before without any problems.


    A couple of days ago, upon starting my Chromebox, I found that there was no longer any sound coming out on the HDMI output. The picture is fine.


    After trying without any succes to deselect-reselect HDMI audio output and then reboot, I tried sending the sound output through the analogue channel (mini-jack output plug), and found that the sound does work fine on that output. Unfortunately this is not a practical long-term solution for me: I do need to send both the picture and the sound through the HDMI cable.


    I noticed that whenever I boot the system with the audio HDMI output selected, I get the following error message in the KODI log, right after the point where audio devices are enumerated:


    <code>

    ERROR: ActiveAE::InitSink - returned error

    </code>

    And shortly after, the log gets bombarded with similar error messages:


    <code>

    I am getting none of that when I reboot after selecting the analogue output.


    In the hope of getting rid of that problem, I went as far as reinstalling librelec from scratch, but unfortunately that did not help.


    I am not sure what else I can do short of replacing my Chromebox. Any suggestions as to where the problem might be?


    Many thanks,


    Pierre

    HELP NEEDED with charset issue in closed captions


    Hello all,


    After many unsuccessful attempts to get my closed captions to show correctly in streams from my Tvheadend server I am turning to you for help.


    Problem: French accented characters are plainly missing from the captions. No characters whatsoever shown in their place.


    Setup:

    - KODI 18.3 running under libreelec 9.1.002 on a Chromebox

    - TVHeadend server 4.2.7-44

    - TVHeadend client 4.4.18.2 running on the same machine as the server

    - locale set to UTF-8, fr_CA



    The problem does not appear to depend on the tvheadend client, as I am getting the same problem when accessing the tvheadend server from a client running on a different machine.


    Thanks in advance for any tips/suggestions,


    Pierre
