Hi!

At first, sorry for my bad English.

I have installed the final kodi from the kodi.tv homepage and after some testing it isn't possible to get any surround sound! I got only stereo sound!

Can someone tell me why?

Ask on the Kodi Forum.

 

Ask questions here If you are using VidOn XBMC.

Gregiboy , that was rude ....

The answer , currently only vidon xbmc and vmc provides support for passthru , note that this is also license limited support

Only HD audio passthrough needs license, the AC3, DTS passthrough are free.

Forgot to change the text... :sb:

But I just downloaded the Helix and installed it on my VidOn Box and played some movies, the information displayed on the OSD showed DTS-HD MASTER 5.1...

I use vidon xbmc for 3d but that's not the only file I have and vidon xbmc don't have the aspect ratio option and I hate black bars. And why should I ask in kodi forum they did not make the box, features are controlled by vidon. I just want to use kodi has a second option until vidon can incorporate the aspect ratio option but with kodi or any other player there is only stereo output.

The features are not controlled by VidOn in Kodi.

 

They are controlled by the Kodi software.

So the question is why kodi software is not passing through on the vidon box when it pass through on other android box remember there is hardware and software. Hardware got to give access to software.

Vidon xmbc and vmc are using allwinner api to passthru to the hdmi or spdif device

Kodi is not using allwinner api , but instead is using the default android sound device

It's all about software configuration
