I'm experiencing very crackly audio (hard to hear what is happening) when using headphones and only when the controller is on WiFi (sound from the Chromecast is fine and sound from the 3.5mm jack on the headphones is fine when the controller is connected to my phone by USB C).
I have tried on two different internet connections, one of them with ridiculously good WiFi that nobody else was using and insanely low latency (with plenty of bandwidth) and another less good, and with two sets of headphones.
I have reported it via feedback, but not got any sort of reply or acknowledgement.
The problem is i.already put on chromecast plastic cover some PI heat sink on it
Enokay Black Heat sink set for Raspberry Pi 2/Pi B+ (3 Packs) https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B014KKY19G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_zCS6DbS6518BP
So i dont really want to ship them back you know.
Yep. Same problem with brand new hardware. It isn't a headphones issue or connection issue either, based on the fact that it both works and doesn't work in different circumstances with them the same, and continues to not work in the same circumstances except either of them changed.
TBH, I suspect that it is a hardware issue, but it just affects lots of controllers, and both the old and new one are affected.
Do you get it all the time? Yesterday I noticed that in my setup the audio sometimes was OK, but every now and then it would crackle.
I start to wonder if this is an audio code issue where the quality goes down in order to adjust to the Internet link.
@FigsI get it constantly. I doubt it is a codec issue for me, as I get it even when playing at 1080p on an internet link and WiFi that can sustain >100Mbps bi-directional with <1ms latency and no packet loss (almost literally, there will be entire days between when a test packet is lost with our monitoring, ~0.00000001% packet loss).
