No sound / Screen blacks out with HDMI with Sony Bravia TV on N64 roms

  • Hi everyone !

    First of all thank you for this nice project.

    I'm trying to setup recalbox on a raspberry pi 3 model B and everything seems to work fine except for N64 emulation.

    I have two problems and I think they might be linked:

    • Basically, if I setup the "jack" mode for sound, everything works correctly (even though the sound quality is pretty poor, so I'd prefer using HDMI for sound, but if I can't fix it, I'll just use a jack instead).
    • However, if I use the "HDMI" mode for sound, the screen blacks out every 20 seconds approximatly, just like the HDMI cable would have disconnected for a few seconds, and would have connected back again.

    These problems happen only while playing N64 roms, I've tried several roms, and all do the same problem.

    Also, this behaviour happens on my main TV (which is a Sony Bravia) but when I test it on a Samsung TV, everything works normally.

    I guess this is the kind of super-hard bug to troobleshoot, but I thought I'll still ask in case anybody had the same problem.

    Thanks for reading,


  • @tforgione known problem, i've found a workaround yesterday before i can release a fix (which is ready on my side)

  • Oh cool, does that mean that there will be an update that fixes it soon ?

    Thank you very much !

  • @tforgione yes there will be. No ETA, but this one + SELECT not working in netplay are ok on our side

  • Oh, super cool! Thank you!

    I'll mark this thread as solved then.

    Thank you again!

  • @tforgione i've posted a workaround in the main 18.06.27 topic

  • Cool, thanks !
