2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
A new UI update is scheduled to be rolled out this month. Hope it fixes the DTS issue.

Also, does DTS passthrough work with the new 2020 models? or it's broken for those devices as well??

People are worried about the DTS issue but has anybody ever experienced the issue where you get a 1 second audio dropout every couple of hours or so? I suppose most people won't hear it but if you're binging TV shows, you'll hear it a bunch of times. This isn't even unique to Kodi. It happens with other 3rd party players as well. I wonder if the FireTV 4K stick is more suited for Amazon's own players (which I never use) than 3rd party players.

Anyone got this new UI update already?

What the hell is wrong with Amazon? Firs they promised the update last year, then said it was coming this year in Mar, and a few days ago it srated, my FireStick4K still doesn't have it. And it seems its still OS 6, with no fixes. So whats the point ??!!

Amazon is not selling you a Kodi experience. It's selling you Prime Video and whatever other services they are pushing, on a subsidized device. They couldn't care less if they break players and apps they don't care about.

When using Kodi with my TV it correctly switches refresh rate including 23.976.
However with the projector only 50, 59 and 60 refresh rates are offered in Kodi menu. It also doesn’t switch to 23.976 when starting playback on the projector.

I guess this is caused by the projector not correctly advertising the supported refresh rates. I know for sure the projector supports 23.976, because with my sat receiver this refresh rate is working. The sat receiver can be configured to select 23.976 and other refresh rates regardless of display EDID.

I wonder if there is still a way to enable 23.976 refresh rate in Kodi?
Any help is much appreciated. Thank you.

so i ordered one of those fire tv 4k and i am happy to report: 4k HDR x256 playback now finally works WITH ambilight (hyperion.ng)

:happyhippo:
HappyHippo..  I have the same configuration FIre Tv CUBE 2020 + Hyperion NG + Android Grabber, but the grabber doesn't capture the video only the AFTV menus or the APP rolling color wheel.  I tried Kodi (1080p and 4K) and Youtube, the grabber only sends a black image.  Which grabber are you using in the AFT?

Question for those who have owned both a fire stick 4K and a fire cube: is the image quality any better on the cube?

Yes. Fire OS 6.2.8.0 (NS6280/3233)
Got it yesterday, too.

If I'm not wrong (my boy is using it now, can't check/confirm), it does "fix" one thing.
The description on the Audio is now changed from "Stereo" to "PCM" and it says it supports multi-channel PCM.

Multi-channel PCM is never an issue for me, it's been always working in my setup.
But I know it didn't work for some of the folks here.
I'm wondering if the latest firmware really fixes the multi-channel PCM issue for you?
That is you can choose to get multi-channel PCM instead of DD+ when playing DTS/AAC contents.

Kodi Android v19 changed from using floating point to integer audio, which fixed the 5.1 PCM problem. (7.1 still doesn't work).

I only have 5.1 speakers, so I can't fully confirm if 7.1 is working or not.

But when I play the 7.1 audio test file from Fraunhofer, I can confirm that both Back and Side audios are coming out of my back/surround speakers.
Doesn't it mean that my setup is capable of handling 7.1 audio?
