MakeMKV, Xbox One, Kodi Pi, Sony TV, Oh My...
I have no IDEA where to post this, as it involves so many different devices and questions.. I hope this is OK...
Kodi 18.6 (I think.. Leia) running on a Pi 3+ - audio output set to HDMI, w/ passthrough enabled. Dolby and DTS receiver capabilities selected in menu structure, but the options for TrueHD are not shown on my screens.... ?
Xbox One S - Dolby app installed, HDMI bitstream and "Dolby Home Theater" audio output options selected.
Both boxes connected to an Onkyo TX-NR797 via Monoprice Certified Premium High Speed HDMI cables, and the "HDMI:Enhanced" option activated on the receiver.
Receiver connected via the HDMI/ARC ports to a Sony XBR-75x900F television.
Confirmed working Dolby Atmos on Bluray discs played both on Xbox and separate Bluray player, as well as streaming via Netflix, Disney, and Amazon Prime Video (depending upon streaming device used... don't get me started...)
I own "Blade Runner: director's cut" on bluray, which has a TrueHD sountrack, which plays back fine from the disc. Ripped the disc w/ MakeMKV twice.. once with ONLY the TrueHD track, and then once with the TrueHD track and the backup dolby digital backuop 5.1 track.
The only device I have that will play the rip with the TrueHD track is my el cheapo homebuilt Kodi. A Roku Ultra returns "can not play file.. may be corrupt." The Xbox and media player app built into the Sony TV both only play the version with the DD 5.1 track.
Any ideas why?
