Hi,
does anyone use an Home Cinema with the fireTV and can get HD Audio to passthough? Ive tried all different settings in Kodi and i just get a very high pitched static.

Im not sure if the fireTV supports it but there are dolby digital ON/OFF in the settings so i assumed it would.

Thanks in advance.

Hi I posted the solution, follow that link and it should work fine. I lost my DTS and dolby sound when the new update happened last week.

I restored my dts settings perfectly using firmware 5.05.1 and kodi jarvis 16.0... passthrough enabled in kodi along with DTS capable receiver are selected.

I heard that with spmc 16.2 version, you can even have DTS-HD and TrueHD (upto 7.1 channels) passthrough firetv if you have OS 5. There is a toggle in audio settings between Dolby/DTS passthrough and HD audio passthrough.
Since I have the rooted OS 3, HD audio is not going through but only the core Dolby/DTS 5.1 goes through. Jellybean OS is not capable of passing HD audio but lollipop does.
You still have to do the firetv settings posted above in post #2.

HD audio is not working for me on OS5 using SPMC 16.2. I too had the no dts playback issue and the above fix didn't work for me since it was already set to that. I turned off sync video to display or whatever it's called and my dts playback worked again.
