Just started using Recalbox on an old Zotac ZBox.
Regardless what i did, or what audio device i've chosen in ES, i didn't get any sound 😐
Not in UI, nor in retroarch.
Even via SSH, with aplay... no sound at all! On any devices!
So i fired up Kodi, did the sound settings there (tried them all, since i did not know which of my 4 HDMI devices will actually play)... and played some videos. Great, sound via HDMI, device 2 🙂
Back to Recalbox, changed audio device to the second labeled HDMI device.
Reboot, to start clean...
... but STILL no sound 😐
Now the workaround after a fresh boot:
- start Kodi
- leave Kodi
Voilà - immediate recalbox GUI sound, and within retroarch et all 😃
What does Kodi different?
Do we need a better sound initialization? Un-muting? ...?
Some alsa settings?!
