Pi4 + LibreElec ... No Sound

Wed Nov 06, 2019 5:19 am

I setup a Pi 4 with the latest libreelec build and there is no sound. 4K videos play fine, but no sound. I have audio output set to HDMI and using a genuine RPI cable. I tried feeding the HDMI signal to both a Smart TV and a monitor with built-in speakers, and in both cases, no sound. I’m convinced it’s an RPI/LibreElec issue but not sure where else to look besides in the settings.

Issue resolved. All I needed was to use the OTHER HDMI connector on the PI. Somehow, by default only ONE HDMI port has sound, not both.
