Under Settings -> Sound -> you find the option HDMI passthrough.

You mean the system settings (there is an option and device support precondition) and i the stockplayer settings (there is no option). You need the option for the player too... like in xbmc available. That is the problem of the most Players in Android Market - no passtrough option.

I am using a Seagate 3TB Expansion.

Hey mate, did you have USB Debugging enabled by any chance to get it working?

The drive mounts okay and it can see the drive storage size and free space, but its only viewing 5 directories and maybe 10 files out of 1000+

My best bet is that the ATV1200 (20121210 firmware) is struggling with the AF partition alignment used in the external seagate enclosure.

@Darjk, sorry haven't replied before. I just plugged it in, browsed via mnt to the drive & added it to the library. Didn't use debugging.

@Xardos
You really have DTS? I have only DD.
How did you connect your receiver? HDMI ?
Another thing is android footer, any chance to skip when watching full screen?
Thanks!

-looks very fast & stable

-XBMC Version http://www.pivosforums.com/XIOS_DS/XBMC/...010813.zip is working, AML-Player is starting, videofiles with all sounds(DTS,DD,DTS-HD) are playing (my Pioneer VSX-921 is switching the display !yeah!Cool), but now the problem: the file is playing, you can hear wonderful DTS-sound, but the screen is only black Sad if you press a remote key, the player-menu is visible. You can use the player, no crash, but a black screen.... Does anyone have any ideas ?Huh

@Xardos
I am using the 130115/xbmc010813 but plugged directly into a TV with HDMI cable and am getting sound and video. I have tested 1080p video and it works perfectly to my surprise. All video is smooth and all sound through my tv works fine. I will test plugging into my pre-amp to test output via the pre-amp.

Very happy with the setup now as it seems to work perfectly.

good news keeps on coming from geniatech:

http://www.geniatech.com/down-eng/androi...130115.zip

"I just tested xbmc 010813 apk version, the usage is higher than our version, and, this audio is software decode. Both video and audio are hardware decode on our xbmc version.If you have interesting, you can compare them."

I'll report back as soon as I test this

you have to set the display-settings in system to 1080p50Hz..

other problem:

1. the aspect ratio is´nt correct -> player options in xbmc are changing the screen bar sector only (movies are always rendered to fullscreen) - not the movie itself are changing - circles in movies look like eggs... ( /sys/class/video/axis have r/w permission)

2. movies running for a long time ok, then will the sound (HDMI passthrough, equally whether stereo or dts) after 20-30 minutes to the AVR Pioneer VSX-921 dropout. The AVR Display switched to stereo, an then i have video only, no sound.
