Sound problem after suspend.

Postby JUSHJUSH » 23. Aug 2019, 12:15

Hello,
I'm using ArchLinux guest on Windows host. I have problems with sound.

The problem occurs after:
-suspending host system
-disabling and enabling bluetooth headphones(the only i tested) on host system.
-spontaneously, after using my guest for random amount of time

When the problem occurs i can't play audio, youtube video doesn't play(freeze at first frame), .webm vidoe doesn't play(unless they're without sound), spotify shows "can't play this song" communicat, etc.

I'm using pulseaudio + alsa, my alsa settings are not muted, restarting pulse/alsa doesn't help. I've tried every every audio controller in VBox settings.
The only solution i found is to reboot my guest.

I'm using VBox 6.0.10 r132072 (Qt5.6.2) with guest additions on Windows 10. I upgraded it from 6.0.4 few days ago and nothing changed.
I attached the VBox.log, the problem occurs at 00:05:25 after disconnecting and reconnecting my bt headphones.

@EDIT
I just found similar bug on kernel bugzilla, id 202499(I can't post link as a new member).
It may be not linked directly with VirtualBox

Can you simplify your audio setup? I also see a Thunderbolt Dock being involved in there, and docking/undocking has been problematic. At the end of the day what I'd like to see is:

That's the most interesting one, the other two have been known to cause issues. It's not easy to change your hardware on-the-fly:

If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
