Odroid sound card multichannel capabilities

Unread postby Nagawika94 » Sun Aug 06, 2017 6:09 pm

Hi!
As I know HDMI pass-through is not implemented in KODI 17 on XU4, I'd like to know if I could use KODI 5.1 decoding feature and pass the decoded multichannel audio stream to my AVR. Unfortunately it looks like in pavucontrol that Odroid sound card can only handle 2 channels maximum.
Can you tell if it can handle 6 channels?
Thanks!

I have no idea really.

Please try this C2 approach on your XU4.

Thanks for your advice
Unfortunately the "AE_SINK=ALSA kodi" command does not enable the Audio pass-through options...
Do you think something has to be done differently with XU4?

Thanks Voodik
I guess your advice is to buy the vantec nba-200u external usb sound card
odroid, what about the usb-spdif tested by HK ? Would it help me to have surround with Kodi ? Can it handle more than 2 channels ?

I'm using HK usb-spdif on Debian jessie by meveric and it's doing the job. For me HK usb-spdif was the cheapest option. I've tested it with 5.1 sample files which plays sound on each separate channel on my home-cinema. HK usb-spdif is connected to home-cinema with toslink.

Thanks Gburas!
hopefully one day hdmi pass through will be implemented in KODI 17
I'd like to buy this product unfortunately it seems HK does not sell it anymore. Do you guys know where I can purchase it?
