Dear all, We've noticed some of you are having questions enabling passthrough. Here is a simple, step-by-step guide. 1.) Enabling passthrough inside the system - Go to the basic setting folder on the MINIX launcher screen, or open the "SettingsMbox" app directly; - Move to the 3rd category - Advanced; - Make sure the "Digital audio auto-detection" option is "OFF"; - Scroll down to the last option - Digital Audio Output, click into it; - Choose the passthrough option you need - either SPDIF passthrough (not applicable for X6), or HDMI passthrough, or both (not applicable for X6); After step 1, you may proceed to step 2 if you want passthrough from XBMC/Kodi; 2.) Enabling passthrough inside XBMC/Kodi - Go to SYSTEM -> Settings, click to go inside; - Scroll all the way down to the last option - System, click to go inside; - Scroll all the way down to the last option again - Settings level, click 3 times to "Expert" level; - Scroll up to the Audio output option, move right, select "Enable passthrough" + "Enable Dolby Digital transcoding", total of 5 blue dots will be checked; - Enjoy; Last but not least, if you are NOT connecting the box's HDMI to the external decoder directly, or if you're connecting using the SPDIF OUT port from the TV, then first of all you must check whether your TV could handle these multi-channel streams, we can't help you if the TV doesn't support that: http://www.cnet.com/news/20-tvs-tested-which-sets-can-pass-surround-sound-to-a-sound-bar/ http://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-l...s/1389050-tvs-5-1-passthrough-hdmi-spdif.html https://forums.plex.tv/index.php/topic/30034-the-lg-smart-tv-dts-tragedy-thread/ Regards, Team MINIX.
