Request -  SACD/DSDIFF playback in XBMC
You are right, this feature has to be implemented in OS-level. It seems the developers of intel/nvidia-drivers are a little lazy. Huh
As far as i know the DSD-over-HDMI feature has to be integrated in the intel/nvidia drivers, but the developers don't want to/ have their reasons not to want...
Same thing with MVC-3d integration.

@HeresJohnny:

I do not 100% agree with your opinion. SACD-playback is a important feature (which works flawlessly in foobar2000) but has a lot to do with DSD-over-HDMI. People with SACD-iso's want to hear pure DSD, otherwise they could use PCM-material, which is much easier.
This is no problem in stereo, but for multichannel there is still no possibility to playback DSD-material, except a handful of VERY expensive DAC's. DoP is only working for stereo as far as i know. Are there developments in multichannel-DoP?

It appears that multichannel DSDIFF playback is finally possible as of Kodi v18.0 "Leia". I've just updated my Shield TV (Android) Kodi. The multichannel files (Sony DSF as well as Phillips DFF) that previously generated only sound garbage are now crisp and clear. Output is over HDMI to my Amplifier. SACD Iso's still don't work, but at least we have options now.

I couldn't find any reference of DSD or SACD in the changelog, so I don't know if this got sorted finally by changing the nvidia/intel drivers or by adding a software feature for converting these types of signals to PCM. Anyone else have any infos on this?

Yes, it is possible to playback multichannel-DSD. I was not aware, that this was not possible in former versions of Kodi.
But the point is, that DSD is still converted to PCM. So it is not really an achievement in my opinion.
Btw. DSF and DFF is more or less the same - DFF is lossless compressed DSF. Like flac for PCM.

FYI - Playing DSF files with Kodi's latest (18.0) eliminates the loud noise between tracks. I run Libreelec 9.0 on (2) Intel NUC's. Nice job Kodi !
