Solved Kodi (19.0) and passthrough issue
#1
Hi, 
I use Kodi 19.0 nighty and Ubuntu 19.10 on Intel Gemini Lake x64 computer (Asrock J4105M).
I have CM6631A USB to i2s/spdif soundcard. I passthrough spdif sound to the external decoder. 
With my usb soundcard 'passthrough' worked well on my previous software (Ubuntu 19.04) and previous hardware AsrockJ3455M. In both boards in the UEFI I swithed off onboard sound (ALC887). 

But currently 'passthrough' doesn't work.
I don't know whether this is connected with the switch from Ubuntu 19.04 to 19.10 or from board J3455M to J4105M and don't know how to fix this...
Please advice what to do.

Configuration issue on your side. You use pulseaudio but did not properly configure it for passthrough. See the wiki: PulseAudio (wiki)
Are you sure you want pulse?
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

I would like to configure pulseaudio but in the newest Ubuntu 19.10 there are no 'Advanced' option and no checkboxs for AC3 and DTS passthrough (around the 'output devices' configuration). When I selected 'Digital Output (S/PDIF)' in the old Ubuntu I had AC3 and DTS checkboxs.

I use pulseaudio because sometimes I use audioplayback  from firefox browser.

Thanks, 
I haven't had Pulseaudio-Controls installed. 
I installed ubuntu server and after that minimal gnome-core.
I've just installed and configured Pulseaudio-Controls and everything works fine.
