    It's a packaging issue in the image. If you download dt-blob.bin and replace the current file in /flash it should work fine. At least, I have normal stereo output here, a cable needs to be acquired to test the optical output.


    Thanks, that fixes it nicely. I have analogue audio and optical audio too.


    If you fix the package, I will reload Five Ninjas version then do a complete update to yours so we can verify the package is complete.

    and analogue should work?



    and analogue should work?


    I tried the today update and get HDMI audio for both settings (HDMI and HDMI and analogue) but no analogue when set to HDMI and analogue.


    Tested with HDMI connected and change settings, also with NO HDMI connected, using VNC to see screen, no audio both times.
    Tried each setting after a power off (power connector removed) still no analogue audio and there is no red light in the connector suggesting no optical out either.


    *** edit: cannot get LEDSs to work, I am sure it did once .... (LEDs pattern does not show at startup the power down pattern that is in the Five Ninjas build). :s


    Happy to retest for you

    Update on last post after some lateral thinking....


    Added echo blacklist snd_bcm2835 >> .config/modprobe.d/disable-spdif-for-hd-audio.conf from here Latest build testing [NOTE ADVICE] - Help / Support - FiveNinjas
    then I get another option in system settings ... audio: ALSA: Default (snd_slice Analog), when this is selected and music is playing there is continuous white noise and a tone (maybe about 1khz).


    Power off system and the sound stops (as expected :D ). At power on, as soon as the Libre ELEC splash screen goes, there is a crunchy sound (like speakers pop when power on an amplifier (a badly designed one!)) and the white noise and tone are there as before (with no music playing). This time the power on LED sequence worked too, and the power off sequence worked as well.


    Retried power off three times, results as above.


    Reboot system, results the same, power off LED sequence, rebooting OK, white noise and tone come back and about a second after that, the startup LED sequence starts.


    After a while the audio stops (I guess when it sleeps) and using keyboard to wake up Slice the noise and tone are back again.


    Hope this helps

    Further update , there is a red light in the audio connector indicating the optical output is turned on. I have tested the Five Ninjas build and get audo via optical. There is no (decodable) modulation on your build.
