Yes, inability to passthrough HD Audio is a known problem with recent Intel hardware and Linux - see the Intel Apollo Lake thread.

Your original post was confusing because you said:

which would have been a new and completely different issue - I had asked someone within the LibreELEC team who has a Kaby Lake to confirm your report but they don't need to now.

Until the issue is fixed in Intel hardware (firmware) and Linux kernel there's nothing anyone can do. If you must have HD Audio passthrough (not entirely sure why - PCM is just as good) then my current advice would be to avoid Intel.
