Build Info: Kodi MVC WIP 20160505

Hardware: Intel NUC DN2820FYKH with Intel Celeron N2830 CPU, Windows 10 Professional 64bit, Intel® HD Graphics driver-version

Debug Logs:
Everest MVC MKV (created with MakeMKV)
Finding Nemo MVC MKV (created with MakeMKV)

Description: When skipping in MVC MKV files with TrueHD/ATMOS sound about about 85% of the time CPU usage increases to 100% and remains there while video slows to a halt.

Screenshots: Screenshots taken during video playback were blank. If helpful I can snap a pic/video with my phone.

How to reproduce: Play an MVC MKV file with TrueHD/ATMOS sound and chapter skip.

Finding Nemo seems to have slightly better chances of a successful chapter skip for whatever reason. There seems to be no problem with DTS-MA. I have tried disabling bitstreaming of TrueHD.

An ISO of the same movie plays fine but when converted into MVC MKV I'm not able to FF/RW or chapter skip without losing audio> video slows> video freezes. When doing a chapter skip the video actually progresses to the new chapter but the play timer starts back at 0:00> audio loss> slow video> video freeze. I have tested quite a few movies now (Everest, Finding Nemo, Minions, In the Heart of the Sea) and have also tried turning off TrueHD Capable Receiver. I also tried switching off 3D while playing which seemed to have no effect.
So I did some testing on my own with the same build and I can report that I have the same exact issues
Atmos/TrueHD are affected while DTS-HD is not.
Could it be a prob with the NUC DN2820FYKH? Even though yours is a Celeron N2830 and mine is the N2820.
Hopefully other members with different boxes will test that out, so we can rule out if it's hardware dependent or not.

Another thing I can't figure out for the life of me is WOL from S5. I can wake it up from S3 but not from S5 (via Magic Packet)...
Anyone has an idea?
HTPC 1: Vero 4K
HTPC 2: Intel NUC D34010WYK (Windows afedchin's Krypton MVC Build)
