START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
(2017-06-28, 17:20)wrxtasy Wrote: IEC Audio Firmware support is needed for Krypton Audio Passthough. I suspect the X8-H has old Android 4.4.x Firmware without that support.

First Options before new Hardware....

1) Install LibreELEC Kodi Kryton to a Samsung EVO, Sandisk or Lexar 300x Class 10 U1 microSDHC card and run a dual boot setup.
2) Install SPMC (Krypton test) from HERE and select the RAW Audio passthough options.
3) Follow the advice in this post and install an Alt. fork of Krypton.

All other MINIX Kodi support questions belong either on the Kodi Android Subforum or look in the MINIX X8-H Sub Forum.

Yes, it has Android 4.4.x and won't receive upgrades anymore.
I will test what you've suggested. Thank you very much.

The apk file from the 2nd link about SPMC had some parsing problems, or something like that. So I tried my Kodi 16 again and found some audio options I did not see before. No I have Dolby and DTS sound. Smile
Thanks for you help.

I always link to this topic and your opening post when people ask which Kodi mediaplayer to buy. It is of great help. Keep up the good work. It is very much appreciated.
