DTS-HD HR with nightly or my firetv builds. Those are in sync as well. These changes were too intrusive for backport cause the old amlogic hacks stand in the way. Those were already removed in nightly, though dropping support for 3+ year old broken FW devices ... we don't do for Leia, cause of the whining that will start heavily.

Another good example of workarounds for broken firmware making trouble for new ones.

2019 Cube runs an AMLogic modified v4.9 Kernel, same as the new AMLogic S905X2, S905X3, S905D3, S922X and A311D Android devices.
I get the same DTS-HD MA, Dolby TrueHD - Kodi v19 audio limitations as Cube, when running Android TV Pie on the Odroid N2:

With Kodi v19 Matrix nightly (or @fritschfiretv Kodi v18.5):

DTS-HD HRA = Yes (not a lot of HRA content around these days)

DTS-HD MA 7.1 = NO (you get 5.1 DTS Core only)

Dolby TrueHD 7.1 = NO (5.1 DD Core only)

W. 

Yes. That's my expectation. I still find it totally fucked up - that the old workarounds we have for AML devices now kill modern devices ... that's just not fair. Good that these things are gone in v19.
I currently work with google to get the IEC 8 / 192 official. When this has happened, we will get those two on "standard" boxes as well.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
