[SOLVED] Zotac ZBox HD-AD02 - no sound via HDMI - Sheldor73 - 11-12-2011

Hi,

i am totally new to openelec/XBMC, so please forgive a maybe stupid question.

The box ist set up and ready. But i have no sound at all. Not in the menues, which is not so important, but also no sound in the movies. :-((

The Box ist connected via HDMI to my Yamaha RX1800 a/v-receiver.

My Settings on the Audio-Page:
HDMI
5.1
check
check
check
hdmi -> i tried most of the other entries as well.
iec958

Please give me a hint how to get sound.

Thx
Chris

Try login to the box via ssh.

Go to /storage/.config and copy the fusion .conf file

cd /storage/.config
cp asound.conf.sample/asound.conf_fusion.sample ./asound.conf
vi asound.conf and uncomment the hw:0,3 line like below, save the file.

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave {
# pcm "hw:1,0" #delete the first hash for sound over analog
# pcm "hw:1,1" #delete the first hash for sound over optical
pcm "hw:0,3" #delete the first hash for sound over hdmi
rate 48000
}
}

reboot the box and see if hdmi is working now.

Try the solution in this post. It seems to work for Zbox AD02 and AD10 boxes.

Hello, i have a same problem with my ad02 - no sound via hdmi.
I tried a solution above (pcm "hw:0,3" #delete the first hash for sound over hdmi
rate 48000) - still have no sound.
then i tried a solution from silvertim37 (pcm "hdmi") and now i have sound in menu but still no sound in video or music or anymore..

what should i try to do to get sound? any ideas?

thx.

So, it works now. I tried to remove "rate 48000", restart box and now it works Wink

here my settings:

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave {
# pcm "hw:1,0" #delete the first hash for sound over analog
# pcm "hw:1,1" #delete the first hash for sound over optical
pcm "hw:0,3" #delete the first hash for sound over hdmi
}
}
