For me, Vero4K + is connected with the HDMI cable to the Onkyo 905 receiver. So I send a sound to Onkyo and it’s just decoded there. And everything works very well even Dolby True HD 7.1 sound formats.
Only even with lossless audio formats Vero shows 8bit?
Is this how it should be?
Do I have something wrongly arranged?
The description of the sound looks like this:
pt-truehd, RAW, RAW, RAW, RAW, RAW, RAW, RAW, RAW,8bits, 48000Hz
That would be tricky to do, because when passthrough is enabled, the audio isn’t being decoded, so there is no way to know how many bits are actually in the audio stream. Kodi only tracks the name of the codec and the number of channels in the database.
The information seen “RAW 8bits” refers to the fact that the only processing being done is to send the raw audio stream across HDMI or Toslink 8 bits at a time.
