    I apologize for my ignorance here. I posted the results of the "amixer" command using putty in post #38.


    This is the output from aplay -L

    The Kodi audio setting that works with my Sony is:" ALSA:HDA Intel,SNY SONY TV *00 on HDMI#1"


    In earlier versions of Chrome I stumbled on hw:0,7 mostly by trial and error. I have no idea what the "7" device is. Maybe you can school

    me a bit on what's going on here. Thanks in advance for your patience. :shy:

    I understand that I need to find the card name. I'm stumped as to how to find it. At one point in the past before V10 I had to use Custom Audio Device to get any sound at all from Chrome. The settings that worked were hw:0,7 but for some reason I get audio without the custom settings now. So I guess I not understanding where to find the "Card No." When I ran amixer I posted it earlier but it does not show any PCM card numbers just hdmi 0-4. I'm obviously missing something here.

    I thought I'd offer an update to this audio issue I've been playing with. I can now watch video without the Chrome crash with

    "uh oh something went wrong" error just no audio at this point. Still trying to determine which PCM Chrome is using on my system to move forward Seems a bit more involved than I thought.

    I admit I'm clueless here as to which PCM Chrome is using.

    I ran amixer with Chrome running and I get this:


    LibreELEC:~ # amixer

    Thanks so much Amanda. This issue has been a real bummer for the past few years and I had to create a dual boot system just to deal with this one little bug. Glad to know I'm not alone and thanks again for your hard work as well as the devs who made it happen.

    I'll let you know how it works out for me.

    I have the same issues described here with my HDMI connection and would appreciate a summary of what was done and steps to fix it. I'm a bit confused as to what was entered and where?

    Thanks in advance.

    RD

    Bluetooth is disabled. You are correct. BlazeTV has a volume slider onscreen. I've read the thread you provided a few times but I'm a bit rusty on details to enter changes. It's been a few years since my RPI days but I think I can still use putty to SSH into the HTPC if that's what's necessary. I'm a bit fuzzy on exactly what worked for Amanda and just what she entered to get there. Can I simply edit the guisettings.xml file from my Linux system? Just need a little guidance here. Thanks in advance.

    I disconnected wireless mouse/keyboard and used an ancient plug in keyboard. Same results. I navigated to my subscription sight and the video played with no sound. I navigated to youtube and sound worked. Then back to my subscription site and the uh oh something wrong error.

    I have a dual boot set up to run Win10 on one drive and LE10 on the other. I now need to run Win10 just to get sound to work for one subscription site. Very odd. Same exact setup running Win10 and Chrome and all is good. LE10 with Chrome and the errors. Must be some hidden issue someplace. Any thoughts?

    RD

    Thanks for the interest. This is my first shot at sending a logfile and I used the LE System selection. I hope I did it right. I forgot to write down the entire link but the ending was 3y80. I might need some hand holding to do this correctly and thanks again. This issues has haunted me for some time now.


    RD


    Just for the H of it I retraced my error in Chrome and uploaded the logfile again. I paid a little more attention this time and the link is http://ix.io/3y8e


    Hope I did it ok.

    I was hoping some of my issues with Chrome might be solved with the V10 upgrade but now I'm really stumped and hoping someone might have a solution.

    I'm running the LE x86 V10 on a PC and Chrome works just wonderful. I'm writing this using Chrome on LE at the moment. No special audio device needed and all is well.

    I moved my LE drive to the HTPC (same basic PC hardware) only uses Sony HDMI for video/audio. I didn't need to change anything and audio works great for Chrome running YouTube and online local TV channels. I subscribe to service called Blaze TV which works fine on the PC and dies with "uh oh...something went wrong" on the HTPC. Obviously something to do with the HDMI system but like I mentioned I'm stumped. Anyone have any thoughts?


    RD

    I've had the same experience. I found that Youtube usually works first try so I go there first then on to TV sites. Sometimes nothing gets the audio motor running and I have to close Chrome and start all over. I know it's hokey and frustrating but eventually it works. I'm hoping that LE10 will address the problem and fix once and for all.

    RD

    Thanks to both PA and Da Flex for the replies. Still on the fence here and I'm totally spoiled with LE. I tried Kodi on a FireStick and it works but is clunky to me after using LE for so long. I won't bore anyone with the trip through the weeds involved to get a stick working and updating. My Intel x86 system running LE has been three years without a hiccup. Rock solid work of stellar software IMHO.

    A small portable system does have appeal though and still looking for right one to test out.

    RD

    I'm building a LE system for my daughter and wonder if anyone has used the Mi Box. The specs and reliability look pretty good. I own a few RPIs but I wanted to keep this build as simple as possible. Using just a remote with no keyboard and maybe a usb stick for offline storage. Seems lots of cheap Android boxes around with some pretty bad reviews overall. The Mi seems to have good reviews or does it?
