START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
Sigh !

Added this additional warning to Post #1 - because numerous AMLogic Android 6.0 box owners are getting burnt with the following issue:


And if that does not convince you that all AMLogic boxes with Android 6.0 are rubbish at the moment then read this post about DTS Audio passthrough issues.

WeTek and MINIX - who actually do Kodi box testing before sale have withheld releasing any Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates or new devices until the DTS Audio passthrough issues are resolved by AMLogic with new Firmware. The new Xiaomi Mi Box is affected by this DTS Audio issue as well.

What do current owners who need DTS passthrough Audio on AML Android 6.0 boxes do ?

Send them back immediately. Especially if they are devices with no after sales Firmware update support. You have bought a Doorstop.


Kodi developers are no longer putting up with using hacky workarounds for any Android devices that ship with Firmware that does not follow Google standard, Android API (Application Programming Interfaces) for Audio and Video playback.

This is why we always recommend with Any bleeding edge Android device, you need all the after sales Firmware support you can get - or put-up (and shutup) with the consequences. Kodi developers (and support staff) simply no longer care.
