Re: Trouble Getting HDMI Output From RPi4

I've been having issues with hdmi as well, basically tried everything I could find, but nothing seems to resolve the issue... (Swapping cables, config.txt editing, reinstalling, new Power supply) The Pi loses connection with my TV for two seconds, after playing media of any kind... I think it's hdm...

Re: USB audio adapter that also amplifies sound?

I have tried several USB audio, like the Sound Blaster X-Fi Go, and some other cheap equivalents, like plugable.jpg comparing it with the RPI's built-in analog output, the USB audio dongles's audio does sounded louder (and better/clearer). however... it does hog some space on the USB ports which pr...

Re: USB audio adapter that also amplifies sound?

AFAIK there is no standard for "headphone level" but the USB audio adaptors I've used have been loud enough for me, when the digital volume control (ALSA level control) is turned up. Headphones usually have low impedance (8 to 32 ohms) and will not give much volume if driven directly from a relativ...

USB audio adapter that also amplifies sound?

Hi Pi community,

I'm thinking about buying a USB audio adapter, but do those also smplify the audio? Because the 3.5 jack outputs a very low volume, so I am looking for a good alternative.

Not a hat because I am rocking the FLIRC case.

Thanks in advance.

Can the raspberry pi team please STICKY this thread? Seeing as the team are working on resolving hdmi issues at the moment??? We don't stick threads like this, and that won't help from an engineering point of view anyway. To really get it 'stuck' so its gets worked on you need to add an issue to ou...

Re: How is 3.5 mm analog audio out on PI4?

I don't think it would be worth a high quality audio out unless it also came with a decent quality audio in. As it is you can just use a cheap USB adapter. I haven't tried it but this would almost certainly work: Amazon: Plugable USB Audio Adapter with 3.5mm Speaker/Headphone and Microphone Jacks (...

Re: Strange problem on my Rpi 4 4Gb hdmi TV connection..

Well i thought i would ditch the other thread i opened because i foolishly thought it was pulseaudio... Whilst pulse isn't even installed by default... Bought a new hdmi cable ( an extender almost the same as suggested ) but that did not change the outcome, it's definitely some kind of weird HDMI au...

Re: Pulseaudio disturbs hdmi signal to tv and causes tv to blank/reconnect?

For all of those who are facing similar issues, set hdmi audio to analogue in you TV. Plug in the RCA/3.5 Jack in your Pi, and hook up to the input of your TV. Set system audio to analogue, and boom you are ready to go. That's more of a workaround and doesn't really address the issue. The problem i...

Re: Pulseaudio disturbs hdmi signal to tv and causes tv to blank/reconnect?

Update 4.0 I can confirm that the same thing happens when playing audio. Next thing i tried was changing the hdmi audio setting in my TV to analogue (i think this disables sound via hdmi), and the reconnecting/restarting is gone! Kind of stuck at this point... Is there something i can adjust in the ...

Re: Pulseaudio disturbs hdmi signal to tv and causes tv to blank/reconnect?

You have not told us, which media player you are using (on Raspbian). Kodi (using Libreelec or Raspbian) and omxplayer can switch the video resolution when playing video to match screen and video resolution and FPS. This might cause the effect you describe. It can be disabled in Kodi. You have not ...

Re: Pulseaudio disturbs hdmi signal to tv and causes tv to blank/reconnect?

You don't need pulseaudio to have audio output. In fact it is not installed by default. Huh??? So how come I can uninstall it? I lose volume control when I do! How do I regain volume control, after getting rid of Pulse in Raspbian? And how do I get rid of pulse in Libreelec? The Raspbian desktop ha...
