I've installed a few systems with this How To and everything is fine. Since I never needed it, I wasn't mssing it, but yesterday I tried to connect a USB harddrive and I couldn't find it in Kodi. So, what do I have to do to automount USB storage devices?

It is done automatically, pastebin your polkit file, that you created within this howto.

Audio Engine: SPDIF has only 2 pcm channels. DTS, AC3 are encoded via those 2 channels. It's obviously clear that you are not able to change Speaker Layout when running via SPDIF.

Hi,
After upgrading to 14.04 and Kodi I think I did something wrong and now, after trying to get Kodi working I have laggy HW accelerated video playback (about 6 fps with less 20% CPU load, info screen says that frames are missed and dropped). Help me please to understand what's wrong because it's not only a HTPC but also a home server with lot's of stuff that is hard to reinstall from scratch.

You run oibaf ppa, which does not seem to work at all in your case. Please follow that howto from scratch.
