Do amlogic-ng builds work well on GXL(S905X/S905D/S905W) devices?

Thank you, glad we seem to have got to the bottom of it.

I just have four audio output device options:

ALSA: Default (AML-MESONAUDIO, Analog), PCM
ALSA: AML-MESONAUDIO, PCM
ALSA: AML-MESONAUDIO, HDMI
PULSE: Default, Bluetooth Audio (PULSEAUDIO)

I’ll try your suggestion, but maybe just leaving the output at 2.0 and using my receiver’s Dolby Prologic II capabilities might be simplest.

Yes, but then you downmix the audio to 2 channels, and then upmix them back.
With AC3 transcoding, the system will transcode AAC to AC3 and it should, at least in theory, only have 1 stage of processing.

Not too taxing on the S905X CPU?

Should be able to handle it ok.

Interestingly it stops the stutter and freezing of the video, but there’s still no sound, so I’ll stick to PLII or maybe even go back to non-ng. Thanks for your time anyway.

Try build 19.1.0

It’s highly recommended to upgrade to at least minimum CoreELEC 19 Matrix as EOL for 9.2 was announced!
