Hello all,

Another topic caused by the lack of DTS support by Sonos.
I invested some money in a new home media entertainment setup.
Bought a LG OLED55C7V, Sonos Playbase and Nvidia Shield.
Everything works pretty great, however I do run into the problem that .mkv files with DTS audio are being downgraded to stereo sound when played with kodi.

I've strounded the internet looking for the ideal settings, but the so called solution of setting Kodi to 2.0 channels and enable audio passtrough is not doing the trick for me.
Audio settings on my LG tv are: audio output: auto with SIMPLINK enabled.

Anyone able to help me out with this issue?

Thank you in advance!
