Hello there,

 

i am looking for a good App for the Fire TV Box that can stream with passthrough.

Kodi is able to do this (Only Kodi v16 DTS-passthrogh) but i don't like there Frontend and i dont like that i cant have my own server like with Plex or emby. 

So i came here and everything works great, even better than Plex!

 

But i am not able do get DTS passthrough working on my FTV. I got a AV-Reciver and this is only getting some kind of converted audio (Maybe AC3) but no original DTS or DTS-HD...

Maybe im missing some Settings or so and you guys could help me.

 

Or maybe it it working in theater-mode. Than i would buy a Premiere

 

Thanks allot!

You could always use the Emby plugin for Kodi....

Btw, while Kodi I believe can bit-stream, it's not really passing through DTS-HD from what I have seen in the past.

 

The only Android player I have seen that can pass DTS-HD through is the Shield.

Yep i know. But i thought there might be a direct way without using Kodi

Sorry, but the Shield appears to be the only box that properly supports DTS at this time.

 

It is possible that future firmware and/or player updates may improve this but the Fire is running a fairly old version of Android right now too.
