Has anyone has issues with PCM through a receiver on the S905X?
I get load white-noise randomly when trying to play videos. It happens with all audio codecs as long as I am not using passthrough (I don't use passthrough because I need to be able to change the volume from my tablet).
I think the issue is the same one linked a year ago here:
I am pretty confident it is an issue with the PCM output not conforming to what the receiver expects. The white noise occurs randomly when starting to play a video, but also occurs randomly if I switch the receiver on/off or switch inputs while a video is playing. This happens both with TOSLINK and HDMI audio.
As I said it never happens with passthrough, but that isn't helpful to me.
I am unsure if this is an issue with my specific S905X box or an issue that would show up with any S905X box and my receiver, or possibly something that could be fixed via the dtb. I have tried many different versions of LibreElec as well as building it from source. All versions from the past 6months or so that I've tried have had this issue.
The receiver I have is a couple years old Denon AVR-S500BT
Have you tried change the HDMI cable?
