[Raspberry pi] Low Analogue Audio Level r11708 #1057

I am using the composite output of the RPi using XBMC build r11708 having upgraded from r11661. I have the analogue output selected in Settings, although it doesn't seem to make any difference if HDMI is selected - I still get audio output on the 2.5mm jack. I have no idea what is happening on the HDMI output as I do not have an HDMI telly.

However, the audio level is significantly lower than other devices and swithching back to regular TV from the external input can be a DEAFENING EXPERIENCE!!!

I have tried "playing" with various settings such as 7.1, 5.1, 2.1, 2.0, Downmix boost etc and sending stereo to all speakers - or not. None of these settings make any noticeable difference to the audio output although perhaps they should? Makes me wonder if something is broken?

The media source makes no difference. The problem is the same whether it is playing local MP4 video files, streaming TV or playing MP3 or M4a audio files. (Edit: I have also ensured the volume is full up using the XBMC remote.)

Same problem. Appears to be from AC3 encoded video files for me.

If this issue is still present with our latest builds please report XBMC related bugs to http://trac.xbmc.org because RPi support is now merged to XBMC officially.

Hey Stephan,

Thanks for the reply. Does that means OpenElec now points to the main dev branch of XBMC instead of the RPi branch? Just trying to work out where OpenElec pulls in the code so I can see how many commits behind its builds are in regards to XBMC.

Thanks mate.
