Hi all,


i have the need to play some audio coming from an i2s source (a radio fm) into hdmi card output.


i am using a simple alsa loop command as:

arecord --rate=48000 --device=sysdefault:CARD=imxaudiosi4745 -B 8000 -F 1000 | aplay --device=sysdefault:CARD=imxhdmisoc

And a simple hdmi CEA setup as below:

mxc_sdc_fb fb.28: 640x480 h_sync,r,l: 96,16,48  v_sync,l,u: 2,10,33 pixclock=25174000 Hz


On kernel 3.10.17 (from boundary) the loop plays fine for minutes.

On more recent kernel 3.14.28, i get some underrun messages here and there, after 10 to 40 seconds, and audio is interrupted from some small holes, or fully interrupted sometime.


arecord --rate=48000 --device=sysdefault:CARD=imxaudiosi4745 -B 8000 -F 1000 | aplay --device=sysdefault:CARD=imxhdmisoc

si4745-codec si4745-codec.355: si4745 codec, setting sample rate as 48000

overrun!!! (at least 0.044 ms long)

overrun!!! (at least 0.870 ms long)

overrun!!! (at least 0.011 ms long)


I don't see btw issues playing a wav file directly to hdmi, so it is like some issue in the i2s->hdmi conversion.


Was some similar issue knows ?

What do you suggest to do know (can't switch to other kernel versions now) ?


Many thanks
