Ok, thanks, i'll wait it out then
I did a firmware update for the HDMI 2.0 (for which i had to use a windows 10 64 bit installation) which should address some HDMI 7.1 audio issues. But now instead of silence i get loud white noise with DTS-HD-MA 7.1 material. Also the whole interface of LE seems more sluggish...
This Nuc6Cay seems to be the wrong device for LE, or is it possible to tackle this for the development team?
Any news regarding the 7.1 Audio passthrough?
Unter Windows 10 I am able to play all kind of Audio (DTSHD, Dolby Atmos, 7.1... whatever). Also I am able to play 4k videos without shuttering.
But I prefer LibreELEC - I have installed current 8.0
Is there a way to activate 7.1 passthrough there too? Maybe a custom build?
It really is a pain! I sold my NUC5PPYH (here all kind of Audio was working with LibreELEC 8.0) to buy a NUC6CAYS because of the HDMI 2.0. But now it does not work as suggested...
I do have the same annoying problem with this Nuc6cays. You can disable passthrough and set playback to stereo upmix per file to have audio, but that's not a solution...
