Low Volume after update from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6 - InuSasha - 03-15-2015

Hallo,

after the update from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6 the volume was very low.
I had to increase the volume from -40dB to -15dB.
In the Logs i haven't seen any noticeable problems.

The omxplayer had a bug, that the volume scale was implemented linear.
The new volume scale is more an curve. That reflect more the scaling of the dB-scale.
Now the behavior is the same like dvdplayer and paplayer.
The minimal and maximal volume are the same, but in the mid you have to tune a bit higher.
(see the graph same posts later)
(thanks to popcornmix for clarification)


Bye,
Sascha

Also have this problem after the upgrade from 5.0.5 to 5.0.6 with RPi model B.
Would be interested to know what caused it.

Can you tell me how to roll back to 5.0.5? Where can I pick up this older version?

Wait a moment.
If the patch 69, raise the problem, we can ignore it.
I actually work to confirm this.

this patch changes the graph of the volume scale, but not the min or max value.
you can see it the little image Wink

@openelec team: information about this kind of changes are good Wink

The old volume scale was a bug. It didn't match dvdplayer or paplayer. It has now been fixed. See:

@popcornmix:
but why it is only changed in RPi builds?

Because the bug was in omxplayer which is only used by the pi.
