1)Can Diva identify the type of audio? It just says bitstream but I want to know what: DTS, DD, DD+,...
Is this possible to add?
2) ATV4K => input 0 DIVA.
Audio out DIVA => Soundbar HDMI IN
The Apple TV sends CEC-ON and CEC-OFF commands when you power it ON and OFF respectively. I would like the option to forward those CEC-commands to Diva's audio out and so forth to the Soundbar connected to this audio out.
The Soundbar will not select its correct audio input output if I power it on with a remote. It requires a CEC command for this.
Can you please consider implementing this?
1) Normally you need expensive dolby license to decode and know audio format, however there is a possible trick here since Diva have FPGA, but that is not yet implemented, for the moment, we cannot give more accurate info on audio format (same for Vertex or Integral2 or any of our devices currently)
There is a good chance we can add such feature in the future but for the moment, it's not the right time for that, we are still working on building strong fw by fixing customer issues, so at the moment, we only consider bug report. Please keep this suggestion for in a week or two.
2) No, that's clearly a misunderstanding on how CEC works, the only way to have that working is by connecting your soundbar output to your TV, since TV is root and a device with several output only have one master CEC out and Diva Master CEC is TX0 not Audio out. so TV can see Diva and everything connected at input, TV cannot see what is at Diva output since CEC does not work like this, it's a kind of reverse tree, TV is root and all fall down from there.
In case you connect soundbar to your TV, then Diva cannot be set as audio system under CEC anymore. so you lose ARC extraction feature by doing this (still perfectly fine for eARC since eARC solves all this)
Other option is to make a translation CEC > IR, when Diva get CEC commands from ATV or TV, it can send command to IR out, so you can stick a IR TX on sound bar IR eye/window. this is something we are considering but not yet implemented cause as explained previously, currently we are not in a new features adding stage.

You can email any code to harmony and they will add to your account (privately, or publicly), that's part of their service for their customers and they do it very well.
