From day one, we have been open and honest with you all and we wish to continue this.
It has been brought to our attention that there are intermittent audio issues with a very small number of games with a small number of TV’s – only in HDMI mode (this does not affect handheld mode) and especially when using game capture.
We have done extensive testing and have been unable to recreate the issues on most TV’s. For the majority of games, no issues happen with any TV.
- No audio issues exist when in handheld mode
- No audio issues exist on any TV for the majority of games (list below)
- Intermittent audio issues exist on some TV’s for very few games (list below)
- There is a simple soft-fix which fixes the sound (see below)
- We are working on a permanent firmware fix
For clarity, no issues occur in handheld mode.
Regardless of the rarity of this issue, we want to be open and honest and let you know that there’s a small possibility when using HDMI, you may have random sound issues with a small number of games. These sound issues include: sound dropout (no sound) or white noise.
We are working on a firmware fix already, but cannot guarantee this for ‘day one’ (whereas we are promising an optional button mapping fix for ‘day one’).
We have also identified that using game capture significantly aggravates this – so when streaming/game capturing, you are likely to see the issue more frequently.
The Mini-HDMI cable can also heavily impact this issue. We recommend using a shielded Mini-HDMI cable and if you have regular sound issues, replace the cable or try a different cable.
How do I fix the sound in HDMI mode?
There’s a very simple soft fix you can do to fix the audio (if you do experience an issue).
Thankfully, we have save/load states, which means you can save your game at any time and then instantly re-load from that place.
If you do encounter sound issues, saving / exiting the game / re-loading the game will fix this:
- Press the menu button, then save state
- Return to main menu
- Re-launch the game
- Press the menu button. then load save state
