Windows does not support Dolby Vision via the DirectX api.

never update for kodi ?

kodi dont work with atmos and hdma, it encode sound..... why ?


RE: Kodi DoVi - jjd-uk - 2021-11-15

Well it's impossible for us to support Dolby Vision on Windows if Microsoft do not provide an API.

As for Atmos, TrueHD, DTS-X, and DTS-HD MA, Kodi will pass all those through to an AVR if you have appropriate hardware.

API = Application Programming Interface
AVR = Audio/Video Receiver


RE: Kodi DoVi - asox27 - 2021-11-16

I have to figure out how to tell Kodi to let HD sound pass through the settings.

Does your AVR support Atmos? Do you have an AVR?

Also check your Windows drivers to see what formats are available for you via the AVR.

I only have a soundbar with the possibility of playing ATMOS sound and a computer where I read my movies with kody. But the soundbar is plugged into the TV.

What type of Atmos? You can have Atmos that uses Dolby Digital Plus (what streaming apps typically use) or Dolby TrueHD (what Bluray typically uses).

Are you connecting your computer to the TV? then using either ARC or eARC to get sound to the soundbar? if so what does your TV support, ARC or eARC? If trying to playback TrueHD based Atmos then your TV must be capable of passing it through which not all TV's can do, so you need to check if the TV has eARC support, and if so can it pass TrueHD over eARC, and in addition some TV's have a setting to switch between sending LPCM or passthrough.

You could also try connecting your computer direct to the soundbar.

The type of Atmos depends on the source, either Dolby Digital Plus or Dolby TrueHD. If connecting a computer to the TV, check if the TV supports ARC or eARC and if it can pass TrueHD over eARC. Connecting the computer directly to the soundbar is an alternative option to explore.
