I already confirmed that stock ouya + side loaded xbmc works with passthrough - as in it passed the Dolby Digital / DTS signal correctly to my Onkyo HT-RC260 receiver which the lit up with the appropriate "DTS" or "DD" lights, and of course you can hear the difference with much better sound pinpointing.

Anyway, after struggling with CM11 + xbmc passthrough static for a while , i stumbled upon a fix/workaround the other day.

My connection is Ouya ----> Receiver ----> TV

For my Onkyo receiver, I found that in the options::hardware setup::hdmi menu, there were options for RHID (HDMI-CEC) and Audio TV out. When I enabled "Audio TV Out", the passthrough static stopped and digital surround sound started working perfectly.
Before writing this I toggled it back off to check and of course the static returned and went away onced I turned it back to "On". It seems counter-intuitive and I can only guess but these options must all be related to the broken HDMI-CEC in some way (something I don't personally use anyway)

It's worth a shot, it works great on my Onkyo, perhaps there's a similar option for other receivers.
Thanks for the advice. My setup is the same, except I have a Yamaha. There are similar settings, so I will try to toggle those.

In XBMC, can you tell me what you see under 'Audio Output Device' (System --> Settings --> Audio Output)?

I have my settings the exact same, except that I am not getting two settings/options that you are: Number of channels (Mine is set for 2.0 and greyed out) and I have no Output Configuration. Thanks for posting.

Apparently, at some point whilst flashing, my system partition was getting full and stopped before the play store could be flashed. That's why the keys file wouldn't flash either. Thanks for your input though.
You are completely correct. The dev had a May build of gapps up originally and then replaced the link with a June gapps build that is bigger. It fills up your system partition so not all gapps get copied and you can't flash the Ouya key layout. It's not just you. I had the latest original firmware when I updated. A micro gapps package solves this but I hope the dev notices this. CWM Recovery won't warn you that the system partition is full either so it appears everything is still flashing when it's not. The gapps in the op is over 150 MB. I recommend flashing the latest pa micro package that is around 95MB. If you still have plenty of room in your data partition to download the rest of the apps from the Play Store then the minimal package is fine.

You won't get an auto update from Ouya if you use this CM11 ROM. It's different firmware. You can read about the difference in gapps packages here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2397942. I recommend micro modular at 96MB. It includes gmail, Google search, and Google calendar among others and you don't have to waste space on your data partition to install those apps. You will still have plenty of room on your system partition if you flash this package also. In my opinion, the goal is to install as many gapps in the system partition as possible so the small data partition will have more room for play store apps like games and such.

These will work but they're almost a year old and very outdated. The link I provided has gapps updated to 8/18/14.
