    Kodi 17.1 audio passthrough issue

    There are issues and issues. Firstly, Kodi is an addon to MyGica, no matter if it is recommended as an addon or not. If you do get the audio to work witKodi on the 496PRO as soon as you get a stereo signal or go out of Kodi back to the "native" MyGica video player audio is gone - have to restart the 495PRO. DO NOT get surround on die native Video player at all. Do get 5.1 surround on the MX player - BUT AGAIN, as soon as the nest movie is stereo, AUDIO IS GONE - RESTART 495 Pro AGAIN. NO WE DO NOT HAVE TO TRY THIS AND TRY THAT FOR SOMETHING TO WORK PROPERLY. You put is on watch or listen to something and it works - PERIOD A year now - really!!!!!

    Yes Kripstoe, its actually sad. The MyGica495Pro could be one of the best media boxes out there if they sort out the audio multi-channel problem.

    My point is - the problem has nothing to do with KODI - it is the My Gica box/software combination that is the problem. I can get 5.1 though on Kodi on My Gica495Pro.....but nothing on the on the default MyGica playback software. And like mentioned before in the posts, once you do get 5.1 to work through Kodi, going back to MyGica default player, no sound at all and the box has to be restarted. It also does not support AC3 playback. Sort out the MyGica box default software and drivers and I am sure the rest will be fine.

    Honestly MyGica back-up does not exist. And this issue of no 5.1 is NOT only on the Kodi side, but straight from MyGica own software playback.

    Kodi 17.1 audio passthrough issue

    Hi Guys It really does not seem like we are getting any further in this matter. And to update on the 5.1 audio problem. It is not only in Kodi that I do not get 5.1 audio out - playing a 5.1 source video in the MyGica ATV 495Pro's default player I also do not get any 5.1 audio out. I am not even thinking about DTS............................ Tried it both on the Marantz and Denon receiver - only show stereo PCM coming in. So please......can you do something about this or not? Must we sell this unit as a STEREO Audio unit only? If so, bring the price down please. Thank you

    Yes Bucks_Fizz, and now they released another MyGica ATV 495, smaller than the PRO in internal memory and RAM - but further the same thing - I suppose to make it cheaper for more marked penetration. BUT my point is - correct ALL the shortcomings in the current range and it will be a brilliant product that would sell more. I know I can't go and sell this with confidence anymore - I sell it now only to customers that has a stereo setup and that are not thinking in going 5.1 soon. NOT GOOD MyGica, NOT GOOD!

    I agree Bucks_Fizz. Sad though, the MyGica ATV 495Pro can be a neat little media box. Just again listened to some WAV files through it with FOOBAR 2000 loaded as audio player - serious good sound quality, very well balanced and musical. Only the 5.1 issue!

    Kodi 17.1 audio passthrough issue

    I am a Audio Video retailer installer, and always on the lookout for a value for money product to introduce to my customers. Now the MyGica ATV495 Pro seemed to be just that. Honestly Picture and Audio quality wise I cannot fault it - value for money and all - BUT all my 5.1 and DTS customers are going to pass if the 5.1 Pass through is not sorted. And for the people that want a simple stereo Media player/streamer, there are much cheaper options for the ones not really bothered about quality and the whole surround thing. So yes, lets hop MyGica get this issue sorted soon, because then they have a potential winner on their hands.

    The POINT is this - we bought a media player/streamer, it didn't cost $4.99, so then we should not be the ones figuring out - or trying - how to get it to play 2.1, 5.1, and 7.1. The MyGica ATV495 Pro is a very capable media streamer - but why must a guy pay $140.00 for that, and cannot stream 5.1 surround. But connecting say Netflix and Showmax through his tv with a optical cable back to his Receiver he can stream NetFix etc in 5.1. I really believe that MyGica must now sort out this problem.
