Hi All

 

I've updated to beta 1.7.96g and this resolved the crashing on play for older android tv versions (i think this is 5.1.1). Now there is no audio on anything we play. initially things were working fine!

 

I submitted a debug from within the app and embyserver.txt attached. please let me know what else will help and where else i can look

 

Thanks

Hi

 

Anything that we play on this now has no sound, do you need specifics on the container and mediainfo or a title for the logs?

 

The device identifies as S905.5; one of the titles tested was CSI: Cyber - L0M1S on S905.5 at 29/03/2020, 11:24:36 local time

 

which has the following mediainfo

Hi.  What kind of equipment is involved and how is it hooked up?

 

It looks like the system is reporting support for DD+ but it doesn't actually work.

 

Using the "Playback Correction..." menu option should get your sound back.

Hi

 

TV is a JVC 4K Smart TV running Android tv 5.1.1 (from memory); it is connected using ethernet.

Emby is running on a synology 1815+ as a docker image

other emby endpoints are working fine.

 

I'll try the playback correction and let you know

 

I set the TV to downmix to stereo but then playback was spedup like it was seeking forward... and still no sound

You set this in the app or in the TV settings somewhere?

 

There is no outboard audio equipment at all?  Just the TV speakers?

hi, yep i set downmix to stereo in the app and playback was seeking forward like it was sped up; its now back on auto

 

just the TV, simple set up here.

 

i tried playback correction just before submitting this post and it said "too many errors giving up" and did not resolve the audio issue

 

I've submitted logs from within the app and attached is the server log

Hi ebr,

 

Other than general bass, treble etc there's no other audio settings within the TV menu. there are SPDIF settings, this is set to auto; but I'm not using this! its all built in.

 

I'm really at a loss at whats gone wrong! i might reset the emby app settings and start again later today and let you know how that goes, other than that I got nothin!

so I've tried the following:

 

reset app data and cleared cache - no sound

 

installed firefox and played title using html interface (performance was terrible) - no sound

 

played title on PC via web interface and cast to tv using built in AirPlay app (Eshare Server) - Sound!

 

this is really weird!

I have the same issue on AndroidTV with Emby (both latest Betas, direct stream via exoplayer).

 

For me it's only on surround sound (more than 2.0 channels) that's the issue, I can hear sounds but no voice (center channel). I assumed my issue was due to an update to the AndroidTV.

I'll see what's been updated in the rom and roll it back to see if it's last Synology emby update (4.4.0.30) or not.

Hi.  Make sure you have your TV audio settings set properly as well.

I did install the android app (not the android tv app) when i was trying to get the debug version to work, and navigation was impossible within this version of the app on the TV and i think playback was abysmal; unless this has been updated within the last week or so?

 

If i can get chrome casting to work that would be good (am working on it), but it seems to work using the eshare airplay cast which is an OK work around for now (and also means audio is working from within android tv ecosystem)

 

not sure what the hell has happened to emby but something is up

 

happy to continue to try and debug with you guys if you can see something is up, or its something screwy with the old android version on this tv?
