SPDIF output

Unread post by benwillcox » Sat May 25, 2019 6:42 am

Has anyone actually got SPDIF working on Android?
Pin 2 of J7 has no output nor does pin 7 on the GPIO. The fdtget commands in the thread viewtopic.php?f=181&t=34528 do not work on Android.

Thanks,
Ben

Hi, the Android is not ready to use SPDIF on J7 yet and will need some change to make the work other than the device tree. Internally, we are having the discussion if it can be supported and the audio output device can be selectable by the user.

Thanks for the reply, that's a bit disappointing to hear as I've not seen anything in the documentation to say SPDIF is not available on Android, and the sales information advertises SPDIF output but also doesn't state any condition on the OS used. But, glad to hear you are working on it and hopefully it will be available before too long!

I'm glad I saw this thread. I was planning on using SPDIF on Android as well. Saved me hours of hair pulling. Hopefully a solution will be found.

I'm using one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Neoteck-Extrac ... 36&sr=8-14

It goes HDMI from N2 to HDMI in (convertor) - HDMI out (convertor) to monitor (or tv).
The spdif can then be used for whatever you like, in my case I've got it going into a surround sound set-up (haven't checked it's 5.1 channel but only needed it for basic speaker set-up - optical headphones work too)
Oh and the 5v input isn't actually needed, it works fine without it.

Hi,

Just updated to the latest version and unfortunately it's still not working me - no output on pin 2 of J7 or Pin 7 of the GPIO, either in Kodi or any other application.
Does it need to be enabled somehow?

SPDIF output on J7 is not fully tested yet, let us try J7 next week and let you know if it works or not.

OK thanks, so it has been tested with Pin 7 of the GPIO? As that doesn't work for me either.

Ben.
