The only option I can find in ATV is "Dolby Digital Out". I've now switched from auto to off. But it didn't help. I can't find anything else regarding HDMI/audio.

If you have perian installed (via nitotv) , remove it. It can mess with passthough.

set xbmc to analog out, downmix.

Thanks for helping out!

analog out, downmix - that's the default settings after installing xbmc. Doesn't work.

I haven't installed perian. And I'm unable to find it in NitoTV at all.

For the third time I've now jailbreaked the AppleTV. This time I tried using the instructions in the wiki. I now got an error message. I'm not sure if it could be related. XBMC works fine (except for the missing audio):

After this operation, 1331kB of additional disk space will be used.

analog 2.0

I also have had success with HDMI 2.0 with my hdtv.

Any idea when this functionality might be added into the ATV2 build?

I got an Apple tv 2 jailbroken with sn0wbreeze and xbmc installed through nitotv and I am having the exact same problem as markiz. Since i havn't got a movie handy for movie playback, I wouldn't know if the audio works in there. all I know is that the audio doesn't work and I'd really like to have audio on add-ons such as Grooveshark

Same here. Jailbreak 3.4.1 with snow breeze. No audio. I have read it is a known problem. Would be interesting what firmware he was on. I'm. Going to keep trying to look for solutions

Re JB w/ seas0npass.

Sn0wbreeze has bugs.

FOR IOS: xbmc.log: /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/xbmc.log (be sure to enable debugging)
For troubleshooting and bug reporting please make sure you read this first.
Always read the XBMC online-manual, FAQ and search the forum before posting.

Thx Keith. That's my plan tomorrow. Does this load nito tv? What is the best way to install XBMC? I used nito to install XBMC after snowbreeze I'm new to XBMC and it looks awesome. If I only could hear itBig Grin

The big question. Do I have to restore to 4.3.1 before doing this?

Also this corrects the SMB folders too?

OK...Success! So I did re-jailbreak using seasonpass on the mac. The first jailbreak was on the PC with snowbreeze. I didn't change the loaded jailbreak (4.3.1 on snowbreeze), just ran seasonpass. SSH in and followed the directions to here to add XMBC.

http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Ins...MC_on_ATV2


And presto, I have sound, SMB...although I don't think the hulu addon is working, but that I think is unrelated. I installed the Icefilms addon. This is really awesome. Thanks again...

Question  Sound Issues
Post: #29
Newbie.

Similar problems. Took me a while to JB but got it in the end using Greenpoison. The reason I used it is that Snowbreeze and Seasonpass use iTunes to install the ipsw - and I had continuous probelsm with itunes connecting to apple to verify.

BTW all the JB tools suggest a remote key sequence to set the ATV into DFU which did not work for me (Menu and playpause held for 7 secs.)
If you connect USB, then power, then hold Menu and down-arrow for 6 secs, release and then hold Menu and play/pause for 7 secs it works every time.

Anyone managed to fix the sound issue with a Greenposon JB?
