I can tell you one that you definitely shouldn't install: ES File Explorer. Maybe you remember it from its glory days, but the Android TV version is toxic.

The vast majority of Android apps, like Firefox, are not available from the Android TV app store. It's possible to install it anyway, but it requires several steps. No, it's not the equal of a PC....

I tried switching between GPU and display scaling in the nvidia settings, but it had no effect. In both cases it was using GPU scaling, presumably because 1440p isn't reported by the Sony as a...

But you're sure that it's actually using 1440p and not GPU scaling? Are you using a custom resolution in the nvidia settings?

Chances are the Nintendo outputs uncompressed audio, and if so, the only way to get more than two audio channels is to connect it directly to your receiver.

In general no, but it supports passing through Dolby Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, and DTS. So if the audio is in one of those formats, you can get 5.1 over ARC.

What video card (or integrated video) are you using?

If your TV is a 120hz model that can reverse the 3-2 pattern, you can just leave Kodi on 59Hz (i.e. 60000/1001 Hz).

Small OLEDs have been close to price parity with LCDs for a while now. This doesn't mean that the industry can switch to OLEDs overnight, though (if they tried the price difference would increase).

Since the receiver appears to be working correctly (shows 5 speakers active), I would blame the Sony. The audio file could also be to blame, unless you know for sure it's really got 5 active channels.

The receiver can accept up to 7.1 (PCM) over HDMI. This has nothing to do with its file playback capabilities.

LG Display's OLEDs (the only TV size OLEDs currently available) actually use white light with filters. It has a 4th subpixel, but it's transparent, for extra brightness.
