I have a TCL P8S Android Tv and not able to get 5.1 out unless I use an external player; what could be the problem. 

Sound is set as Auto.

The native player outputs Dolby sound normal

What are your other options there?

 

What is the outboard sound equipment and how is it connected?

I tested emby on the Shield and sound passthrough is incredible. I think my TV has a problem working with the Emby Android TV app.
I'll plan to get an android box that can passthrough all codecs.
