  1. Kodi 17.1 audio passthrough issue

    Still no updates: What really irks me is i like to watch music videos on the box. Some videos are 5.1 while others are 2.0. So as a result, i cannot play in party mode because the moment it plays a 5.1 video, all the rest (2.0) have no audio. I am in the market for a new box... And won't be recommending the Mygica to anyone going forward. 7 months - no resolution!!

    Morning, Any feedback on this issue - seeing as you were able to replicate it?
  5. Can't get 5.1 surround working

    Hi, There is a long thread about 5.1 and Kodi under discussions. Also, in case it is not Kodi, i found that if you set the digital sound output (under settings) to HDMI instead of Auto, the default movie player seems to play surround. But at times it causes stuttering. We have been waiting for almost 6 months for an answer - Welcome to our world
  6. Mkv plays no sound (audio as dts)

    Hi, There is a thread about this. Look for the topic 5.1 sound on Kodi 17. Chances are you are having the same issue as the rest of us.

    Further clarification: The DTS soundtrack does play in surround although my recevier does not show it playing a DTS track - only DOlby Digital. Bear in mind though, that from KODI 17, there is no option to choose a DTS reciever - only receiver capable of decoding DTS soundtracks. So the DTS issue may not just be a 495Pro issue, but the having to reboot each time you play a dolby file is
  8. Kodi 17.1 audio passthrough issue

    Hi Justin. The main issue is with 5.1. Be it Dolby 5.1 or DTS Let me reiterate : You can can watch a file with 5.1 sound including DTS. The sound works fine with the settings on Passthrough enabled. However, once you have watched the file with 5.1, you have to reboot the box in order to watch a file in 2.0 otherwise you have no sound. So it is not the fact that the box does not play the file with 5.1 but rather that you cannot watch a file with 2.0 afterwards without resetting the box Hope this clarifies

  11. Kodi 17.1 audio passthrough issue

    Hi Justin, I see you answered a whole lot of threads yesterday but this one remains unresolved three months later. Will we ever get a resolution?

    It is time like these where i miss my WDTV. That little box did everything with no issues. Unfortunately it seems to be discontinued.

    Hi Justin, Two weeks now - ANy updates?
  14. Kodi 17.1 audio passthrough issue

    Hi "Q" Sort of defeats the object of having a "one box to rule them all" hehe. I just wish we could get a resolution to the problem. My biggest fear is when Kodi 18 is released the issue just grows - Because to date, the question of IEC firmware has never been answered
