OMXPlayer is OK
PAPlayer has no LFE and channels 7 and 8 mapped on BL BR. see thread here for more info.

Latest milhouse build should have same mixing in paplayer/dvdplayer/omxplayer.
They will all match paplayer (and match xbmc on other platforms).

To be clear, are you using passthrough? Have you tried videos with 5.1 audio?

is anyone else having issues downloading? The links are just timing out on me, Or does someone have an alternative link?

Total XBMC spend so far: £76
Rpi (£24) + Pogoplug V2 (£15) + HD Star DVB-S2 (£29) + GPIO Ir (£3) + NOOBS 8GB SD (£5) = Cheap Media Center

DTS passthrough working fine for me on latest builds to a pioneer vsx 922

Have you tried adjusting xbmc volume while playing to narrow to xbmc or your receiver.
If it's not using passthrough you will be able to change the volume within xbmc

To clarify, my issue is no sound with 5.1 passthrough audio.

2.0 passthrough audio is working normally and I have not tested 5.1 audio not using passthrough. It is the combination of 5.1 audio AND passthrough that is not working for me.
Issue resolved. Possibly had something with the TV that was fixed by cycling it.

I asked about seeing if it will let you adjust the volume to try and identify weather it is the pi that is not passing the 5.1 audio through or if it's your receiver that doesn't know what to do with what it's receiving.
As I and popcornmix have stated, passthrough is working fine for us (2.1, dts, dts-ma, dts-es all work fine for me) so there is clearly something unique in your setup that is causing the problem.
Identifying if it's at the pi end or your receiver end is the first logical step

build: #0409

Config passthrough for all

Plays Beethoven_op111_sats1_multikanal.flac
FLAC Variable
5 586 Kbps
6 channels Front: L C R, Back: L R, LFE
96.0 KHz 24 bits

PAPlayer (default) has drops every about 5 seconds
OMXPlayer doesn't have drop.

Both are mapped the same (no LFE and channels 7 and 8 mapped on BL BR)
This is not what I'd like and I am waiting FernetMenta add-on:
Quote:We intend let users configure the downmix matrix in a future version of XBMC.

AC3 and DTS are Ok (quick test)

Config, audio player only:
HDD <USB> Sitecom 4port powered mini-hub <USB> RPi <HDMI> Denon AVR-2313 <HDMI-DVI> 22"Monitor

Nope, like this:

Correct subtitle should be:
TIM BURTON APRESENTA O
ESTRANHO MUNDO DE JACK

Edit: Don't know if it is relevant, but it behaves the same in omxplayer or DVDplayer.

There is no audio with 5.1, but there is audio in 2.0. The 2.0 is definitively passing the audio through. There is no sound in the 5.1 and therefore no volume to adjust.

Now that I think of it, I am not 100% positive that the 2.0 audio I checked was AC3, but I think so and will double check tonight. All my 5.1 audio is AC3.
Update: Issue resolved. Possibly had something with the TV that was fixed by cycling it.

# lsb_release
OpenELEC (Milhouse) - Version: devel-20140409170000-r18124-g1848fdc

Based on tip of XBMC master (492e29a, changelog) and tip of OpenELEC master (1848fdc, changelog) with the following modifications:
  • Includes newclock3 commits (except for 326b55a, a patch to avoid hammering the GUI, which has been replaced with a static spinner)
  • Excludes the OpenELEC fernetmenta patches (due to conflict with newclock3)
  • Includes Python regex package for evaluation purposes. Initial benchmarking indicates generally positive (and in some cases, significant) performance gains. See this post for a description of how to test effectiveness of this package with addons
  • Default setting for "Show RSS Feed" changed to disabled
  • Disabled "Total Duration" in Confluence (see build #0221 for details)
  • ALSA is enabled and any suitable hardware should be available in XBMC Audio Settings
  • Includes newclock3: "More efficient infobool expression evaluator" (reverted in stock OpenELEC)
  • Includes newclock3: "Allow small audio packets to be concatenated to make better use of audio fifo" (reverted in stock OpenELEC)
Build Highlights:

Potential fix for network failure with FIQ FSM enabled (which is now enabled by default - please test & report), fix for OpenSSL "Heartbleed" exploit, fix for stereoscopic font issue, added support for ISW IWL 4000 WiFi adapter.
  1. OpenELEC:
    • openssl: update to openssl-1.0.1g (includes fix for "Heartbleed" exploit)
    • linux: pm: disable async suspend/resume by default (fixes #2862)
    • dvb-firmware: update to dvb-firmware-0.0.39
    • projects/*/linux: (re)enable userspace firmware loader support, this should fix #3083
    • RTL8192CU: add 050D:21F2 device id, this should fix #3081
  2. newclock3:
    • Fix font display in stereoscopic modes (Ben Avison patch for this issue)
  3. Other patches:
    • Potential fix for the network dropouts with FIQ FSM
    • FIQ FSM enabled by default (dwc_otg.fiq_enable=1 dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=1 dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_mask=0x7)

Additional Testing Notes:
  1. Testers should try adding the following entry to their advancedsettings.xml:
    Code:
    <advancedsettings>
      <video>
        <defaultplayer>dvdplayer</defaultplayer>
        <defaultdvdplayer>dvdplayer</defaultdvdplayer>
      </video>
    </advancedsettings>
    and report if it is better/worse than omxplayer. You can still play files with omxplayer using the context-menu "Play using... OMXPlayer".

  2. The following settings are no longer required in config.txt and should be removed:
    Code:
    no_hdmi_resample=1
    hdmi_stream_channels=1
    no_resample_audio is now a default, and hdmi_stream_channels is switched based on audio content. For the time being when using passthrough, 2.0 speaker layout should continue to be used (you will still get 5.1 with AC3/DTS).

  3. The FIQ_FSM patch is currently enabled by default in this build (disabled by default in OpenELEC master). See the FIQ_FSM announce thread for details.

    One new feature, currently enabled by default, is accelerated support of high-speed isochronous transactions (webcams, real time devices, etc.). There's a possibility this could be used by ALSA or DVB modules (although not always) which may affect some users (hopefully for the better).

    If you need to disable FIQ FSM, add the following option to the end of the line in your /flash/cmdline.txt file:
    Code:
    dwc_otg.fiq_enable=0 dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=0

  4. These test builds include the option to dump audio and video packets to a file for later debugging. This is for issues with Live TV or streaming plugins that popcornmix can't access.

    In Settings -> System -> Debugging, enable "Debug logging" then in verbose logging enable "Dump video frames to debug file" and/or "Dump audio frames to debug file". These files will appear in ~/.xbmc/temp as audio.dat and video.dat. Hopefully popcornmix can then use these files when debugging issues.

With FIQ FSM activated while watching movies RPI freezes.
Will disable and report if freezes continue.

Can you upload the srt file and I'll see if I can reproduce it.

Update:
With FIQ FSM enabled in last release movies freeze in playback.

With this:
dwc_otg.fiq_enable=0 dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=0
WiFi dongle don't work

With this:
dwc_otg.fiq_fsm_enable=0
Everything is OK.

My dongle:

Now that I think of it, I am not 100% positive that the 2.0 audio I checked was AC3, but I think so and will double check tonight. All my 5.1 audio is AC3.

At the risk of being the guy in the saying "he who is half wise is completely stupid", I think that the relevant part of the log runs about 100 lines starting just before line 1100, part of which (the OMX lines) I have excerpted here:
Sorry I didn't realise you had posted a log already
Not sure if this is an important line to tell what is happening
Code:
1139 00:33:17 444.043945 T:2547647568   DEBUG: COMXAudio::PortSettingsChanged - bits:0 mode:0 channels:0 srate:0 passthrough
I would read that as it is passing through nothing.
Incidentally I have just checked a 5.1 ac3 test video and that is passing through fine for me.
Do you have a sample file or anything

Edit: Ignore this, just compared with one of my logs which appears almost identical.

Quote: Do you have a sample file or anything
I have tested multiple ac3 5.1 files and not found one that does have sound with this build, so I think that the problem involves some characteristic of my setup (as opposed to characteristics of certain files).

Just for laughs, I think I might change the XBMC audio settings back to 5.1 (instructions say to use 2.0 for passthrough) to see what happens.

OK. It's working now. I didn't do anything. Seriously. Well, I turned the TV off last night, but that's it. Maybe it was something with the TV that was resolved by cycling it?
