v17 DTS music playback from WavPack (.wv) files

I checked the channel status bit on the analyzer and it is set to "linear PCM samples" when you play the wavpack file. It is set to "other than linear PCM" for the WAV file. When I tested this with my Denon X6200W AVR, it did play the wavpack file correctly in DTS, but that was the first time. Now, it is not playing it at all and I didn't change a thing. (Tested with LibreELEC Milhouse build #1230 on Intel Haswell).

Here are two samples for anyone who wants to try this out (must like Mannheim Steamroller Smile)

DTS Wavpack (MediaInfo detects this as 2 channel PCM)

I also have to say that both the formats do not play in Android (nVIDIA Shield).

For the shield it's sadly clear :-( Float sink 2 channels :p - typical mixer. For DTS wav kodi will detect DTS and open the PT sink. You can easily verify that by pressing volume up / down. For the wav kodi will block it - for the other one, take great care :-) Ah and shield cannot play DTS 44.1 khz - with 48 khz it will work, their Packer is broken (on droid RAW api they pack - not we).
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
