If you want to watch movies just plug the NTFS hdd into the router and access it from the fire TV Stick/Cube that you will read.

Hello,

since Saturday I am an owner of a Fire TV Cube. The forceraw don´t work for me. Kodi show me DTS-HD but when I try to play a movie in DTS-HD I can´t hear anything.

Just for fun I tried Kodi 19. Here DTS-HD with my Cube worked fine Smile.

Cool :-)

Could you post me the Debug Log? In v19 alphas I implemented a feature that DTS-HD-HR and DTS-HD-MA are distinguished. My Firetv 4k for example can only do DTS-HD-HR. For DTS-HD-MA I automatically fall back to the DTS-Core.

Nice, that you like it.

Btw. do you also have this "Stereo" delay issue as others reported? Does your box also automatically do "DD encoding" and outputting 5.1 if you want Stereo output?

Hello Fritsch,

please find the Link to the debug log (Kodi 18.4 - forceraw):

awecirofak.kodi (paste)

I also tested kodi 19 again. On the the Cube it´s the same: DTS-HD-HR is playing and DTS-HD-MA is fallback to DTS.

Yes Kodi (18.5) does automatically do "DD encoding" when I want Stereo, but I don´t have any delay.

The "DD" is a feature from FireTV by itself. Even if you select 2 channels in kodi, menu sounds and so on are transcoded by FireTV itself to AC3.

Okay - when I watch certain movies on my FireTV 4K with stereo sound I get ~ 150 ms delay. So - that is "somehow fixed" on the cube? :-)

Looking at your log: They don't seem to implement the IEC format anymore. This heavily sucks :-( - as we need to output via the inferior RAW format.

Could you give me a Debug Log with this one, please: http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/andro...bi-v7a.apk (adb install -r kodi-20191125-dc37495a-fritschfiretv-armeabi-v7a.apk  after you are connected.)

Please test DTS-HD, EAC3, also check if they are in sync in comparison to the 18.4 you are currently running.

Hello,

it´s a little bit funny.

Test 1:
Sound Settings Cube: "Automatic"
Kodi: Number of channels 2.0

Kodi plays eveything in Dolby Digital 2.0

Test 2:
Sound Settings cube: Only Stereo
Kodi: Number of channels 2.0 or 5.1 doens´t matter.

Kodi is playing everything in "Multich PCM 7.1". Passthrough settings disappear.

As I said I have no problems with any delay.

Hi,

I will stay with this Version. It works. DTS HR is playing without problems. DTS MA fallback to DTS. It seem everything is fine with this version.

Okay. Thanks. From your log it looked not so good, but if you are happy - let's keep you happy :-)

I will debug the RAW formats a bit the next days, to not break too much with upcoming v19 next year.

Good news :-) with that version IEC format works properly. You want to know the reason? In v18 - there was a 5 year old hack for amlogic hackarounds integrated. This I dropped for v19 and - in your above build - I backported it :-)

Great ...

All fine :-) I need to think about a real solution so that official kodi v18 is not horribly broken on the cube, because of the old AMLOGIC hack ...

I pushed a newer version, fixing some minors in Deinitialize code: http://mirrors.kodi.tv/test-builds/andro...bi-v7a.apk - other than that all the same.
