Setup HD Audio Passthrough Support on ROC-RK3399-PC-PLUS
Need to use Custom Android 10 firmware, any one of the 2 posted by me in the forum.

Go to Settings - Sound
Decode & Bitstream


Select HDMI Bitstream


Open Kodi
Go to Settings - System
Enable Expert Settings at the bottom Left
Go to Audio
Scroll down and enable the
'Allow Passthrough option'
Select all the audio codecs your avr supports,
but keep 'Enable Dolby Digital(AC3) Transcoding' disabled unless you only use a tv or SPDIF that only supports AC3




Refer to this guide for more detailed settings

You will need an AVR Receiver to play movies with DTS-HD, True-HD, Dolby Digital, DTS-HD-MA sound etc.
Amazon or a local audio shop should have them.
Make sure to also get 5.1 or 7.1 speakers if buying an AVR seperately and not as a complete package.

You connect your ROC-RK3399-PC-PLUS device with an HDMI cable to it and then another HDMI cable from the AVR to your tv.
