2.99.1 "Error - no devices found" - markguy - 01-04-2013

I updated to 2.99.1 and the box hung (for about 30m) when rebooting after updating. I pulled the plug, powered it on and everything came back fine... except there's no sound. And checking System -> Settings -> Audio output, I see listed beside both "Audio output device" and "Passthrough audio device" : "Error - no devices found".

I'd post logs and such, but I'm headed out for date night with the wife momentarily... which in retrospect, seems like a terrible time to update the media box. I'm hoping to salvage the latter portion of the evening by quickly asking if anyone has a clever solution. And if not, I'll post responsibly tomorrow morning.

Huh. Okay, I don't know if this is better or worse. Now any time I reboot it from the OpenELEC menu, it hangs. Powering down and bringing it back boots back and then, two of five times so far, can't find the audio device.

experiencing the same problem, after updating to 2.99.1 openelec no longer detects a sound device. although it did work once or twice (out of 10 times).

running on ION x86 board.

edit: i just updated by placing the files in the update dir, but should have deleted the config dir and all (see wiki). so i assume that is the problem, for now i went back to 2.0 until i have more time.
