Just wanted to say thanks for the reply. I mistakenly had set the Denon to 7.1 instead of 9.1 and that fixed everything.

Thanks for sticking with me. So...setting the Denon to output PCM 2.0 is not enough. You are saying is that the Kodi box / HTPC itself would need to be set to pass only PCM 2.0 audio out (turn off...

Got it, thanks. This has been very helpful. I didn't consider I'd need to change the source audio down from 5.1 to 2.0 to make it work. I don't believe the Kodi box HTPC I built (which is what...
