That won't work as long as your box syncs with the TV instead of the AVR. Disable ARC and retry. For HD Audio you need 192 khz samplerate and 8 channels.

I did not quite understood you Smile
The box connected to Sharp HB60 soundbar which have Dolby/DTS decoders via HDMI and the soundbar output to TV HDMI(ARC) input .
I had no problems ever to passthrough DTS and Dolby with that setup .
How should I disable ARC ? Different HDMI port in TV ?
Also in log the stream audio properties :
Stream #0:1[0x101](ger): Audio: eac3 ([6][0][0][0] / 0x0006), 48000 Hz, 5.1(side), fltp, 256 kb/s


EAC3 needs 192 khz, but your bar only announces 48 khz. So it won't work. Enable Dolby Transcode and you get AC3.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
