Solved No DTS-HD and True-HD options/PT in Kodi
#1
Resolution: HT-E6750W does only support DTS and AC3 via external devices.


Apologies for my previous post which inadvertently violated forum rules Angel I cleaned up the system and hope now it's all within the rules! Sorry again Angel

Refreshed my system and updated Kodi.
Ubuntu 16.04.1, mainline Kernel 4.6.7
Kodi 17 RC, running on Zotac AD12, connected to Samsung Home Theatre via HDMI

Problem:
I can't select DTS-HD and True-HD passthrough in Kodi, the options are just not there.
When playing videos general PT for DTS works but True-HD PT and DTS-HD PT doesn't work.
(It worked with Jarvis on 15.10 before, on in my opinion similar set-up.)

Detailed information here:
Debug log: http://pastebin.com/TYbkEQKu
DMESG: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23730584/
Xorg: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23730586/
vdapuinfo: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23730599/
Mesa: http://paste.ubuntu.com/23730604/

In Kodi I can see 4 Audio Devices:
  1. HDMI Default
  2. HDMI @@@ <--- using this one at the moment
  3. ALC892 Analog
  4. ALC892 Digital S/PDIF

In the Passthrough section I can only see [email protected]@@ and ALC892 Digital S/PDIF.
When I select [email protected]@@ there is no DTS-HD and True-HD option available.

Update: I tried the hack fritsch proposed in a different post: 2148505 (post)
This put the options back into Kodi Audio settings, the whole system didn't play a single sound though. All muted or no sound, couldn't see any error. Guess the hack wasn't quite the right way for my systems here.


Your help to fix my system is much apprecitated!

Did you enable expert mode,
Do you also got specs of your receiver.
I know some all in one systems do support DTS-HD etc.
But only with the build in Blu-ray player not with the external connected devices.

No 192 khz available, therefore no TrueHD no DTS-HD. Fix that with your AVR handshake.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

^^ more information is needed. Most likely it does not support DTS-HD / TrueHD via HDMI but only with its integrated Blurayplayer. Does it have such a thing?

Kodi via Zotac AD12 connected to HDMI in from BluRay player (Samsung Series 6 HT-E6750W 7.1CH 3D Blu-ray Home Theatre System)

What I am surprised is, that I'm pretty sure that Kodi 16.1 did allow for TrueHD and DTS-HD.

For 100% sure it did not! Kodi cannot passthrough if the underlaying drivers say: 96 khz only. This has zero (0) to do with kodi.

Okay, okay..didn't mean to offend you!
I'm trying to get my head around this entry here:

But I can't quite figure out how to apply the changes and how to correctly create a new sad entry.

That's how my eld file looks like in original.

As you already followed the edid.bin thread - just take my edid instead of yours: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/5572...arantz.bin

put it to /lib/firmware/edid/edid.bin and make sure to adjust drm_kms_helper as needed. Your dmesg will tell: got edid from external block when you have done it correctly.

I cannot see any change in the Kodi audio options. Let me explain the exact steps I did and please tell me if that's correct.

1. Downloaded your file
Code:
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/55728161/edid-samsung-marantz.bin

2. copied to /lib/firmware/edid/edid.bin
Code:
sudo cp edid-samsung-marantz.bin /lib/firmware/edid/edid.bin

3. Created /etc/initramfs-tools/hooks/include-edid-data
Code:
sudo nano /etc/initramfs-tools/hooks/include-edid-data

4. Filled with required code
Code:
#!/bin/sh

PREREQ="udev"
prereqs()
{
   echo "$PREREQ"
}

case $1 in
prereqs)
   prereqs
   exit 0
   ;;
esac

. /usr/share/initramfs-tools/hook-functions
# Begin real processing below this line

if [ ! -e "${DESTDIR}/lib/firmware/edid" ]; then
    mkdir -p "${DESTDIR}/lib/firmware/edid"
fi

if [ -r "/lib/firmware/edid/edid.bin" ]; then
   cp "/lib/firmware/edid/edid.bin" "${DESTDIR}/lib/firmware/edid/"
fi

manual_add_modules i915 radeon
exit 0

5. made file executable
Code:
sudo chmod +x /etc/initramfs-tools/hooks/include-edid-data

6. Updated grub config
Code:
sudo nano /etc/default/grub
Code:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=HDMI-A-1:edid/edid.bin"

7. Updated the boot files
Code:
sudo update-initramfs -u
sudo update-grub
sudo reboot


Rebooted but cannot see any change in Kodi.

edid-decode claims:
EDID block does NOT conform to EDID 1.3!
Detailed block string not properly terminated

Not sure if that's an issue at all though.

FYI, this is my original EDID, extracted via your process from /sys/class/drm/card0-HDMI-A-1/edid

Are you sure the Samsung does passthrough dts-hd or True-HD ?
My friend had a Samsung set like yours don't know the model anymore.
The internal Blu-ray player does support all media formats.
But external connected devices don't.
Sold his device and bought a real receiver and everything worked.
Did some google look ups and it seems that more people have issues with devices like yours.
