Thanks Vladdrac,

Please copy and paste this code into a terminal, then reboot your system:

Code: Select all

cat << _EOF_ > /etc/asound.conf
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave {
		pcm "hw:0,0"
		format S16_LE
		rate 44100
	}
}

ctl.!default {
        type hw
        card 0
}
_EOF_

Let me know if this resolves the issue.

Also, which program are you running, Kodi?

Hi Fourdee, thanks for the reply,

Yes I'm running Kodi, but with those changes there is no sound yet.

Hi Again,

solved by changing the boot.ini configuration file

was setenv vout_mode "dvi"

changed to setenv vout_mode "hdmi"

Another thing, when choosing 1280x720p (I only have a HD(720p) TV not Full HD(1080)) the tv cannot sync the image, I have changed the setting in the boot.ini but with no luck, when chooding 1080p, the image itself doesnt fit on the tv.

thanks

Hi Vlad,

Strange, hdmi is the default setting for XU4 boot.ini in DietPi. I'll take a look through the code to see if its being changed.

Sounds like overscan.

Try replacing the option "setenv videoconfig" with one of these in /DietPi/boot.ini:

Code: Select all

# 1280x720 (720P) with monitor provided EDID information. (720p-edid)
setenv videoconfig "video=HDMI-A-1:1280x720@60"

Code: Select all

# 1920x1080 (1080P) with monitor provided EDID information. (1080p-edid)
setenv videoconfig "video=HDMI-A-1:1920x1080@60"
Failing that, on your monitor, usually under "zoom" options, try setting to "16:9" or "Native" or "Centre".
