For audio. The Samsung might do AC3, but not DTS. Therefore you could enable AC3, keep speakers to 2.0 and enable Dolby Transcoding.

Thanks !

Why do we need to keep the whitelist empty? I thought one should enable them?
And what is the correct kodi image to use now with the correct audio?

Hello! I'm new in this forum. I have Kodi Leia 18.5. installed on a fire Stick4k The problem is that I cannot see the audio options DtsHd, Dolby TrueHd. I am in the audio options in expert mode and with the passthroug activated. The F. Stick 4k device is connected to an AV receiver that supports all audio formats. I have seen some images online where these options appear but not me. Can anyone help? Thank you!!

FireTV has no support for TrueHD and not for DTS-HD.

DTS-HD-HR is supported though.

Hi

Tried to search for this but can't search for HDR. Due to 3+ letter search.

I just can't get Kodi to to switch to HDR10 for 10bit x265 files on my fire TV 4k. My Sony doesn't say its in HDR mode. If I force to HDR10 it looks way too dark, so not sure it's working right?

Any clues?


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - fritsch - 2020-01-12

Make sure the input you connect it to is actually capable of doing HDR. Also make sure you allow the FireTV itself to do HDR -> Screen Settings in Android Menu.

Thanks !  
The Fire TV 4K stick has the best Wifi I've seen in any streaming device I've owned. I do wish they would make another FireTV box in the future, though so we don't have to buy wired adapters.  

Full agree. 

full desagree.

Fire TV 4K + MrMC impossible to see my 4k rip 
Nvidia Shield + Kodi 18.5 same 4K rip are perfect.

Why do you compare MrMC vs. Kodi on a different hardware?

iperf3 testing with FireTV resulted in 300 Mbit/s directly next to a 5 GHz AC Repeater and it resulted in 195 Mbit/s with the router two rooms away.


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - Facakente - 2020-01-14

Hello ,

I am using Firestick 4K , connected directly to my hw-Q80R sound bar which should be able to decode any audio format , though I don’t see anything being displayed on the sound bar when running Kodi leia, even sound is great though I am not sure if I am getting the best sound available .

My Kodi settings are:
7.1 channel
Dolby digital (ac3) enabled
Eac3 enabled
Dts enabled

I don’t see options to enable true hd and dts-hd

So when playing a movie on the sound bar I just see displayed the hdmi port nothing else,
Can someone tell me if this is expected ?

Thanks in advance .

DTS-HD, TrueHD is not supported by amazon's firmware.

For second:
play a DTS file, and AC3 file and post your kodi.log aftewards. One can see what it opens.

I am new on this and I am struggling to export logs from fire stick ,I did find the logs, is there a simple way to export those logs , I have taken a picture with my phone though but not sure where to look .
Thanks for help.

Just found out that when playing the Witcher for example it does display Dolby Atmos.

Maybe I before I was not getting anything displayed on the sound bar because I was always playing remux uhd which have true hd or true dts , therefore as fire stick do not support it , it was expected.

Use the Kodi Logfile Uploader addon from the official (built-in) repo. You can find it under program addons.

Run that and it will upload the log and give you a URL. That's what you need to post here so people can use it to access the log.

Tried that already , though it returns that log file is too large.

I could access logs via Xanax build on the wizard.
