For the old version of the cube I don't know think you can be too lucky cause its firmware is quite shitty.

Sure, thanks, I'll have to check it all out. For now I just plan to use it as a basic media player. Installed it on the 1st cube and right away I got sound properly synced, something I never had with the "normal" kodi! 

A Debug Log would be great, then I see which device that actually is. You know this thread normally is for the new AMLogic Cube.

Do single layer profile 5 Dolby Vision mp4 files works with Kodi on this device?

@fritsch   if you had to choose a 2nd Gen Cube or a 4k Stick (w/HDR/DV) for Kodi,  which would you select?

I never had the chance to test a cube myself. Only saw some logfiles here which looked good. I am quite happy with my FireTV 4K, but would be eager to try on Cube, but I see no point in buying me one.

I see you released a new version of your fritsch firetv on March 1st. Can you tell me if this newest version will allow me to use the passthrough on fire cube so I can select true hd and master dts in kodi? I have been reading your comments on this and it appears that you are saying the issue isn't with the fire cube but more because of old fixes that were done in kodi for prior amlogic processors. Is that a fair statement? Finally, If this current version you released doesn't fix these issues, will they be corrected in kodi 19? Thanks for all the help your have provided.

FireTV Cube does not support DTS-HD nor TrueHD via IEC format and not via RAW format. Firmware limitation.

Use my build and post a log, then we can directly see it from the logfile.

Ok. I will work on that logfile today. I must have misunderstood as I though you said the fire Cube firmware looked good and that these issue were in fact IEC support from amlogic but with the removing of all the hacks in previous versions of Kodi would help to make this work correctly in v19.

Not really. We can only provide what the FW supports. Therefore it's very interesting what your Debug Log will reveal. The fritschfiretv is the first version that can use RAW or IEC (both defined Android standards) and will log out what it supports.

So: Install my version, start it, enable debug logging, restart kodi and post the log. No need to play a file for now.

You see: DTS-HD-MA in the RAW enumeration. Sadly the firmware extracts the Core of DTS-HD-MA, which it announces in RAW mode to DTS only. Means: For RAW you need to test, for IEC - we pack - so what we do in, it will be put out.

If I did this correct. This should be my logfile with the March 1st fire TV build you posted.

Let me ask you this is it possible to play these HD audio files in PCM out of Kodi with fire TV cube. I tried to set the channels yesterday to 7.1
And fixed and turn off passthrough. My receiver showed Multichannel and I had sound playing a true HD file but there was a thumping sound in the sound track so something wasn't correct. I also noticed if I leave it set to 7.1 fixed and stop Kodi and then restart it it starts doing it immediately even though I'm not playing an audio file. Very weird.

Same as for FireTV4K. Try to set the PT device to RAW (it's the below sound device), then play a DTS-HD-MA file. Verify what your AVR says and post the kodi.log, please.

I have also included a log file link to what happens if I set it to 7.1 and best match. It starts making a thumping sound almost immediately.

Here is that log file link.

Thanks for all the help in this.

All look terribly broken :-)

Makes me wonder, cause it works fine for the other three guys reporting back on your device. Not much I can do. In your log even the multi-channel opening fails heavily, which has zero to do with IEC or RAW.

Make sure it is directly plugged into the AVR, do a restart of the Device perhaps. Other than that: Totally odd.

Even more "funny" the device is properly opened and afterwards the trouble starts.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
