​thanks I will try that
Turn the volume up on remote that came with the TV box.
If you come out of Kodi and play something on say youtube do you get sound? Lets be simple first and eliminate an issue with the entire box rather than just a single app.
Try restarting the Android box then start kodi

probably the most useful question to begin with for the op, would be....

which box do you have the problem with?

just stating "android box" is needle in haystack territory. there are tons of android boxes.

What difference would that really make though in trying to trouble shoot? If someone said they had an M8S/Firestick/Shield/whatever Chinese generic brand my first question would still have been "do you get sound outside of the app you are currently saying is not getting sound"

but knowing what box he/she has will greatly help any trouble shooting advice. surely you must see that as being an important piece of information

Personally I don't in the case of a sound issue unless the person is running through another sound system rather than direct through the TV. Even knowing the brand of the device is pretty useless without knowing which homebrew version or stock android version it is running. In most sound issues it software settings related or faulty cable.
1. Do you get sound outside that app
Yes - then issue with settings on that app. Lets take a look at the apps settings.
No - Have you tried a different known working HDMI cable.
Guys its an easy fix, turn the volume up on the remote, victoriae78 off watching it now. Anyway .... McGregor or Diaz tonight?

so would it not be the case that knowing the device they were running would be helpful in this situation. and I also acknowledge that knowing if they get sound from other apps is as useful information.

anyway, I'm bored with this conversation.

so, op, what is the model of android box you are using.

A couple of times i come downstairs and everyone is huddled close around the TV because the android TV box turns the volume down by itself.
I think Diaz tonight, every time McGregor has fought at featherweight he has always had the height and reach advantage, Diaz might gas out quick because he took the fight at short notice so doesn't have a full camp behind him.

Yeah me too
M8s box - easy to show 100 different firmware versions, 100 different homebrew android versions, different launchers, different ram versions, different chipset versions but all labeled M8s.
Hopefully as River said she just needed to turn the sound up on the remote!
Actually i think 3rd round stoppage to McGregor even tho i do have a soft spot for Nate since winning The Ultimate Fighter when it was shown free on Bravo.

the box says T8-AMLV3. no sound on dexter or pheonix either when I tried last night. will try hdmi cable later. thanks for help so far couldn't get back on last night as toddler decided to get up.
have you tried settings>system>audio to see what the output is as sometimes my melee f10 remote is the device that is highlighted for playback.
Old post I know,but if you change the output in Advance settings to HDMI it should work.
Go and pull it back out the cupboard and try it lol.
I fixed this by going to programes, maintenance tool, fresh start. It wipes the kodi to fresh install. You will need to input the fusion.tvaddons.ag as the source in system adding. But it worked for me. After days of messing about with HDMI cables and settings.
can you see an annoying red dot or an x on the screen?. I had this problem and took ages to sort out.

Dude I have had no sound and this was out of commish for months until I just turned up the sound on the damn remote. THANK YOU even though I feel like an idiot lol.
Bluetooth enabled headphones or devices are receiving your sound if all else fails

Yup, that worked.... its the little things, unbelievable.
Try on a different TV even if you have to take it to family or friends as that will prove its the box. Also try a different hdmi cable and a different hdmi slot. Possibly put in every hdmi port on TV. Change the audio settings to pcm on TV and turn off dolby. Turn up volume using code box remote and turn up TV volume. If that fails you may have a duff box
