2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K
As suggested I setup my Kodi this way …

number of channels: 2.0
output config: best match
keep device alive: off
send low noise: off

passthrough: audiotrack raw
dolby digital capable: true
dolby digital transcode: true
dolby digital plus capable: true

It seems to work pretty good, wondering if this setup is better than going with 5.1 Fixed 192khz setting …

I'm trying to control the sound from my TV's optical that's running thro a DAC to my amp, which is old and does not have a remote. Kodi running on the firestick can change the volume but it does so in 4dB steps irrespective of the volume controls I've set. Unfortunately, these 4dB steps are too large.

Is there any way I can change them?

So if I read this thread correctly - in 2022 "Stick 4K" still doesn't natively support audio passthrough (eg. DTS-HD Master Audio)?
And the only option is "Stick 4K Max"?

In my case I would connect it to Denon AVR 1912.
Not that I need much DTS-HD. But I was used to it playing BluRay connected to AVR 1912 or BR Rips with preserved DTS-HD MA channel.
Just wondering if I'm losing much going with "Stick 4K".

I was going to free up some space on my FireTV Stick 4K, and came across a hidden file in a hidden folder of 1.6GB !!! Since the stick has only 8 GB of storage this stunned me.
The file is in "storage/emulated/0/DCIM/.thumbnails/.thumbdata4-1967290299". I know that on Android the DCIM folder is provided for images and thumbnails, but that there is such a big thumbdata4-1967290299 file inside, I had no idea.

My guess is that it can be deleted without any problems for stick's functionality. I looked at the tips on the net, and fund that after deleting the file, it is desirable to create an empty file with the same name in the same place, and only then reboot-at stick.

Question, what is the size of that file on your FSTV 4K ?

Hi,everyone. I need a small help from you guys. This HDR10+ sample is from kodi wiki page of samples to test

https://ff.wetransfer.com/downloads/0f59...114/257cf4

Please test it on your FireStick 4K and tell me your results if brightness decreases heavily or contrast increases noticeably because it doesn't on my current setup.

When tested on my tv with native kodi app, it decreases the brightness of entire scene as it should. On my  HDR10+ phone with kodi, it plays as usual too with noticeable decrease in brightness but on firestcik tv connected to my TV, there is no visible change to the scene other than the brightest part of the sky.

Same happens in Amazon prime streams, HDR10+ on firestick 4k looks very bad compared to HDR10+ on native TV app. I need to confirm if this is same on all other TVs or my specific TV. No problem with Dolby Vision or regular HDR content though

That's cache for different videos I guess.
