DTS-HD MA/TrueHD bitstream/passthrough XU4

Post by billybob »

My planned setup will be the XU4 connected via HDMI to a AVR that supports DTS-HD/TrueHD. Will bitstreamming/passthrough of DTS-HD MA/TrueHD work using Ubuntu/Kodi?

Even if it does, you probably will not be able to use it. HD audio requires encryption via HDCP for any licensed device. This means your TV or audio receiver will not be allowed to make use of the unencrypted data due to license restrictions. The XU3/4 and C1, like most ARM developer boards, does not have an HDCP key preinstalled.

Thanks for the reply. Is there anyway to get the HDCP key installed?
