I try to get MX Player to play dolby 5.1 or dts sounds on my TV.
- TV: Philips OLED POS 9002 with Android Oreo
- Sound: Bose Soundtouch 300 Soundbar with rear speakers, connected optical. Can play Dolby Digital and DTS.
- App: either direct (using USB) or via DS Video and streaming from NAS. Latest version from Google Play Store.
No matter if I use a custom codec (mx_neon.zip) or not and any decoder (hw+, hw, sw), if I try to play certain test vidoes from here: https://kodi.wiki/view/Samples
especially the channel checks and it is some sort of upmix from stereo, but definitely no disctinct channel selection.
To be exact: I did not test all variations (custom, standard, all decoder) so far...
--> it seems there is exactly the same behavior with my new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - only stereo as well...
Is there anything that I can test or do or try to get it work. Besides the sound issue, DS Video and MX Player are working very well, it would be a pity that due to sound issues I can not use it for anything else than stereo.
Thank you for any hint.
