Tried various things with .conf files above after getting root (/) filesystem mounted as rw, but still unable to get things working.
Used retroarch directly after stopping emulationstation manually, i.e.
retroarch --menu --verbose ; customretroarch definitely being read-in including the following audio settings. have confirmed that audio_device is @ 0,1 and modified the audio_driver with alsa too.
retroarch --features compiled with ALSA as expected, nothing else valid to use:
simply getting an "failed to initialize audio" error from retroarch log:
[ERROR] [ALSA]: Failed to initialize...
[ERROR] Failed to initialize audio driver. Will continue without audio.
decided to take a good look at osmc config with retro and what its using:
audio_driver = "alsathread"
audio_resampler = "sinc"
audio_device = ""
audio_sync = "true"
I emulated this in recalbox, and the errors in retroarch stop with the following in the retroarch startup as in osmc
[INFO] ALSA: Using signed 16-bit format.
[INFO] ALSA: Period size: 384 frames
[INFO] ALSA: Buffer size: 1536 frames
so figured I was onto something, however still no sound.
really just clueless now. remember, I launch emulation in osmc (from kodi) and I start up a game... audio just works.
i suppose my next question is: is there something in kodi that launches stuff correctly or emulation station, or is this simply a recalbox 'startup driver problem' that doesnt recognize the audio correctly. can anyone shed light on this for me?
@oyyodams yes indeed but the one I got came with the new switch support packaging and last firmware from factory, so it seems very recent, maybe there's a new BT chip or something new hardware wise that triggers that PIN code request, well anyway it's "fixed" but new owners may come across this issue too.
Just uploading a new update. Still missing the SG-1000 theme, however, have now uploaded 'clean-720' which will run all 20 systems and only consume 107MB of memory! This is less than the stock theme so ideal for Raspberry Pi 1 users. You can access all my themes at: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/ypp92a26q516k/Recalbox Will continue to update and tweak my themes.
