The most cost effective solution that will fit your needs would be to grab one of these HDMI to Optical Audio extractors and team that up with a Nexus Player, that I believe is on sale for as low as $25. I would check that those Apps you need are supported first. They very likely are.

HDMI to S/PDIF Extractors:

J-Tech Digital Premium Quality 1080P HDMI To HDMI + Audio (SPDIF + RCA Stereo) Audio Extractor Converter (Support Apple TV 4 Gen)

ViewHD HDMI Audio Extractor | Optical Toslink + L/R Stereo Analog Converter Outputs | VHD-H2HSAs

I can look into that, but i was under the impression that, while that may get the audio to the receiver, it won't be received as DD5.1 or DTS but will just play in 2.0.

If i know i could do what you suggest and have a movie playing from kodi that's encoded as either DD5.1 or DTS sending all the channels to the receiver, i might just do that.

Does anyone know for sure?
