HD Audio Passthrough Testing


Can someone test these HD Audio sample files and check if they can play correctly in Kodi 18 on Android 9/AndroidTV 9 firmwares?
Also list the AVR make and model used and make sure it’s updated to the latest firmware.
For files that have a problem, please list them and then in Kodi - System - Settings - Logging, enable debug logging and also install the Kodi Log Uploader addon from Program addons.
Exit Kodi, re-open it, redo the tests with the files giving problems and post the Kodi log.

Latest Kodi app

Enable Bitstream in Android Audio Settings and enable
Passthrough, DTS, EAC3, DTS-HD, True-HD in Kodi Audio settings too.

I don’t have an AVR so can’t test.
According to Kodi’s log there is a problem with 8 channel audio(True-HD) so I just want to make sure everything is working, otherwise I will make a test firmware that enables other audio output that might fix it. FLAC 5.1/7.1 will also be a problem I think but that’s easily fixable.

1.) Test if there is sound output, no sound or noise.
2) Test if audio plays smoothly without crackling or stuttering
3) Test if sound output is correct eg. DTS-HD MA and not just DTS that gets outputted.
