          Now in my bedroom I'm getting something weird. I'm watching ufc replay with volume real low (wife is sleeping) and after a couple minutes the volume drops down by its self to were I can't even hear it. I have to turn it up and then it'll go back to normal. But when I turn it up I still can't hear it and then it'll get louder by itself and I have to turn it down. Both tv's have sound bars. Just started noticing this.
          Hey al8782 have you had any luck with the weird volume issue? I noticed this w/ openelec 5.0.8 on my Matrix Arm MiniPC, it only happened the once but it was very odd.


            where has the zip format for the m8 went all that is there now is

              Loaded this rom (link below) my M8 connected to a samsung 46" and I can confirm the following:

              - there is no audio on the analogue AV (headphone) jack (not sure about optical, don't need it as using samsung optical out to BOSE system)
              - a BT dongle and BT keyboard work well (not sure about onboard bluetooth, don't need it)
              - WIFI and cable ethernet work equally well
              - HDMI sound works well straight out of the box
              - All 4 cpu cores seem to be doing their thing
              - power off button does its thing properly as far as i can see
              - no problems with the remote

              Thank you to the compiler of this ROM!



                Greetings al8782. I have streaked on my square M8 the above ROM. All Dolby Digital video records play fine, yet from the remainder of the video document (ie. aac sound codecs) I don't get any sound. Any musings?

                Comprehended - After playing with my sound settings I found that I needed to choose the "Sound system blend".

                Much obliged for the extraordinary work. This is the best openelec variant that I have glimmered to my M8. securitas employee login
