    Hello. This issue has had me at my wit’s end for weeks now. The solution is probably something really simple, but I just can’t seem to figure it out. I have an OSSC 1.6 with v0.81 firmware. My Gamecube is connected to this with component cables and the audio is sent into the AV2 port from composite to one of those y-shaped cables. The switch in between AV2 and the HDMI port is pushed in, but I absolutely cannot get any audio to come out in this mode. Both the RGB and VGA options work perfectly fine for other systems, it’s just component that’s giving me trouble here.

    Any idea what might be causing the problem?

    You mean the L/R audio channels I hope (the red and white RCA plugs)? Composite video does not contain audio…

    My only tip is to wiggle the switch some more, use a paper clip to be sure the switch is in full in or out position (cannot remember which direction it is).

    Likely. The GameCube’s audio can be confusing, because its official component cable doesn’t do audio, so you still need the composite AV cable to get audio from the console.

    As for the “Y-cable”, that should be a stereo RCA to stereo 3.5mm TRS adapter, not a typical y-cable/splitter, which would bridge the audio channels and effectively downsample to mono.

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah, the audio is coming from the red and white lines from the Gamecube’s A/V port. This is the cable they’re going into, which then goes into AV2 on the OSSC:

    Even if that was going stereo to mono, I’d figure that some kind of audio would be output, but maybe not? Is there a good way to push the switch back after it’s been pushed in, as well? There doesn’t seem to be much room to get at the rear of it.

    You’re right; it’s not easy to get at that switch. Easiest would be to disassemble the OSSC so you can get at the switch from the top. Personally, I used a butter knife.

    Well that’s why I like to use a paper clip, the loop can be used as a hook to pull the switch to the out position.

    The paper clip did the trick! Turns out the switch had to be pulled out and left in its original position instead of pushed in. Could’ve sworn the instructions said you had to push it in for audio off of AV2, but hey, so long as it works!
