Hoping this will be perfect for hires multichannel music (both audio-only and HD video concerts). I've been using a NUC which is great, no issues, but hoping to find a decent low-cost Kodi player for others in the surround music community.
I don't want to alarm you HJ, but I hope you read this before hand, clearly spelt out in Post #2:
Quote:- Interlaced Bluray Rips containing VC-1 content have stuttering playback. Normal VC-1 Movie Rips fine.
If these HD video concerts are Interlaced VC-1 you are going to have continual stuttering playback problems.
No idea when this long standing AML bug will be fixed.

Someone knowledgable Dev, with ALSA Linux / Kodi and AML Kernel experience will have to sort out the the Multichannel Audio issues.
ALSA Audio for AML is an absolute mess, with numerous patches to even get AC3/DTS passthrough Audio to work.
The S905 Kernel does support LPCM, when I went last went looking.

Thanks for the replies. Actually no multichannel PCM this means the C2 is useless for my application.

I did read the info on post #2 but (to me) it's not clear:

"- No HD Audio decoding by the C2 to output as Multichannel PCM. PCM 2.0 only."

Because of the words 'HD Audio decoding' I presumed this was internal DTS/DD decoding not PCM Passthrough. I wrongly thought that FLAC multichannel was supported. I think post #2 needs clarifying.

I was waiting on the Hub but thought I'd give the C2 a trial. I guess I'll lock up the hardware until a fix comes through...
