    No Sound at all 1900 Pro

    Install Kodi 16.1 until they release Android 7.1.2 for the box and everything will work fine.

    Mr

    I have the kr303 not the 301.

    Mr

    Any chance you could put up pairing instructions for the KR303 in case I have an issue like that with mine?
  4. Did you read my May 24th post on this issue???

    KR-303 remote

    What is with this remote. When I first use it, it works great. Then after a while the air mouse cursor starts freezing in spurts and I have to hit buttons multiple times for it to register and sometimes it flashes as if it's trying to reconnect to the fob. It seems like it's a dying battery but it doesn't matter if I charge it over night or unplug the fob and plug it back in. The only thing that works is factory restoring my box. Is this remote not perfected yet or what?
  6. That's because "Force Stop" doesn't actually close it from being open in the background. Try it, if you have an android phone. Open an app then back out of it or hit the home button and go to settings and hit "force stop" on that app then hit the square button, you'll see that it is still open in the background.
  7. I have an explanation as to why, when after playing a file with AC3 audio in kodi the PCM audio doesn't return for other apps after kodi is exited. Like other android devices (phones), when you hit the square button it brings up all the apps still open in the background and gives you the option to close them. I have found that on another android box that gave me the option to have the triangle, circle and square button, once I hit the square and was able to close the kodi app still open in the background, the PCM audio returned without having to restart the box. The MyGica firmware doesn't give you the option to have the triangle, circle and square button to be able to do this so I'm left to assume that simply exiting or backing out of the app doesn't completely close it and therefore explains why the PCM audio doesn't return...and why restarting the box works because restarting the box closes all apps still open in the background. Likewise, the problem still remains that if you play a file with AC3 audio in kodi and then try to stream a video through an addon that has AAC audio or play an mp3 or aac music file, the PCM audio is still suppressed until you use the square button to close the app and reopen it to go back in; seems to be a problem that was never addressed with Kodi 17. So afterall, the problem is and always has been kodi 17, not the Mygica firmware so upgrading it to Android N won't fix the problem unless they add the ability to have the triangle, circle and square android buttons to be able to completely close apps still open in the background.

    1900 Pro Garbled Audio

    That's awesome, what's the ETA on that?

    1900 Pro Garbled Audio

    The garbled sound is from faulty processing in the chipset of the box. Running the HDMI to the TV first before the receiver doesn't change anything. The only fix is a software/firmware update which they say they are working on to fix all the audio issues. It might help to do a factory reset on the box and then reinstalling and setting up all your apps from scratch for now.

    KR-303 remote

    I wouldn't say the cable that comes with it is required, just one with equal or thicker gauge wire then the one that comes with. The one I was using was thinner gauge before I realized that was the problem.

    KR-303 remote

    Sounds like the battery in the remote is just dead. I had a similar issue with mine and even after charging it didn't work. Later found that because I was using a different cable to charge the remote then what came with it, it didn't have the current carrying capacity to charge it properly. Started using the cable that came with the remote to charge and it worked fine after that.

    1900 Pro Garbled Audio

    Kodi isn't the cause of this audio problem, neither is the method in which the box is connected to a tv or receiver (hdmi or optical). It's a problem with the chipset. Playing a file with AC3 through kodi17 causes the chipset to not switch back to PCM afterward; is one problem but this one is something that happens in the chipset when the unit is booted up because the audio is garbled for everything right off the bat from bootup. Restarting the box is the only fix and sometimes doesn't work for the garbled problem because it's random and intermittent, in that case restarting multiple times has been the only fix...I've found.
  13. Well it's been another month since I last asked and now a year since the last software update of any kind. Any word on when there will be a firmware/software update to fix the AC3 audio problem caused by kodi 17?
  14. Just noticed another issue. I recently got the KR303 remote and noticed that when I push the Kodi button to open kodi rather then scrolling to it and hitting enter to open the app, the sound is gone right away without even trying to play a file and remains gone (even for other apps except if I play a video file with AC3 audio within kodi) till I restart the box. I noticed this because I pushed the kodi button on the remote to open the app and tried to play . m4a music files off my stick and there was no sound; restarted the box and opened kodi by scrolling to it and hitting enter, music files worked fine.
  15. Well it's been another month; any new news on when there will be an update to fix the chipset passthrough audio problem?
