So is there a chance to get newer build with 3D support or is this dead officially?

It was never official anyway, it was one developer's work outside the usual kodi dev program. SO now he has said "no more", it is dead until someone else takes up the kudgels.

Isn't the Pi missing lossless audio support?

I haven't tried it yet, but I asked Popcornmix the same question recently and his answer was.......

Popcornmix Wrote:Yes, Pi can decode DTS-HD and TrueHD losslessly and output 8 channel PCM audio.
You want passthrough disabled and "number of channels" set to 7.1.

I wouldn't be too hard on @brazen1. He let his frustrations get the better of him w/choice of words for which he has already publicly apologized. Also, with all due respect to @afedchin, closing a thread with so many users and followers (most of whom did tests, provided samples, and posted debug logs), wasn't right either. It's somewhat of a slap in the face to the many who stood [email protected] It has left a sour taste in my mouth as a staunch Kodi supporter.

There have been newer builds since the dev thread closure, but no proper place to provide debug logs and have mature dev-centric discussion. I did start this thread in the h/w section, but focus there is more on h/w choices. And, I actually did that to help keep @afedchin's dev thread clean of non dev-specific chatter. Guess that didn't help prevent what happened.

Would be nice to have the MVC functionality code folded into the mainline Win32 dev builds as it seems to be working very well for the most part.

Maybe if we ask nicely @Martijn can get a newer build compiling for us again, if not maybe we'll have to try and figure out how to do that on our own, I know I had issues compiling openelec.. Maybe setting up a windows dev environment might be easier.. But I doubt it.

Talking about RPi2 and 3, even though it can't do ATMOS/X, I'm wondering if it's possible to have the decoded 7.1 multichannel upmixed to get some height speaker effects?

If you use Dolby Surround Upmixer(DSU) and Neural X, you can get height speakers effects, works great but not like the actual ATMOS and DTS:X mix.
