  • I've noticed recently that with playback of streaming TV shows, intermittently during an episode, I get a quick sound distortion(sounds like a robot) and a brief cut out of the sound before returning to normal.

    I thought it might be the player (VLC) but it also appears to be happening in other players as well.

    I don't recall this was happening before the recent two firmware updates?

    I've changed the HDMI output in Android settings to Auto to see if this will remedy the issue.

    Any ideas?

  • Describe your equipment setup. Is your device directly connected to the TV using an HDMI cable?
    Which app are you using to watch the streaming TV shows?

    Does the audio distortion happen at the same timestamp on a certain TV show, or does it occur randomly?

    I've heard a couple users who have had similar issues, but it was solved by either doing a factory reset or changing the HDMI cable.

  • Hi - thanks for the reply.

    Yes - my HDMI cable goes directly from the back of the box to the TV.

    I am using CinemaHD/Terrarium/Bobby Movie/ and the various other derivatives that you can stream TV from.

    What I'll need to do is watch an episode and make notes of the timings these distortions occur and then watch back again to see if it happens in the same places and/or use a different player and see if it happens in those places.

    Can you export your shortcuts you've created?

  • Yes - I've created quite a few and more groups.

    Unfortunately, there isn't a way to export or otherwise backup the homescreen shortcuts at this time.

  • Had this issue a few months ago a factory reset sorted the problem but unfortunately it has returned again. Thankfully is doesnt happen in the MTVOL app which I mainly use

  • Had the same issue as natlor. Set Kodi to use MX Player as an external player. Set IPTV Smarters Pro to use VLC Player as an external player. Not had any sound issues since.

  • Ok, my apologies. I'm seeing this issue on VLC player, but I'm also sure I'm seeing it on YouTube. MX Player doesn't seem to have the same issues. It's weird as I didn't get this from VLC player on a Fire TV/stick or A95 Android box.
