Smile Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 HDMI in Kodi
You don't need to do this if you use Firmware 1.0.8 (Beta) and SPMC 13.4.0, with Firmware 1.0.8 (Beta)
and SPMC 13.4.0 you will have 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS in SPMC 13.4.0 (XBMC).

You only need to do this:

Set the audio settings (not in SPMC) on HDMI Bitstream
(for S/PDIF users set him on S/PDIF Passthrough in Audio settings), and then start SPMC 13.4.0 and go to
Settings/System and set Settings level to Expert.

Now go to Settings/System/Audio and enable Enable passthrough

Now you have 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS in SPMC 13.4.0 (XBMC).





Ok guys now we have finally Dolby Digital 5.1 and best of all DTS 5.1 in our movies :-)

This is what you have to do:


ROOT

First install Firmware 1.0.7 on your Open Hour Chameleon and then Root him with 3288_ez_root.

Put the update.zip file on an external SDcard or the internal SDcard (both should work).
Turn off USB if you used that to copy the update.zip to sdcard.

At some point the system should tell you that a update.zip is available and would you like to install?
Click yes.
The system will reboot and install the update.

If he says nothing power down your Open Hour Chameleon, and and power him back on, then he will see
the Update.



Your done!


Thanks to Bob.



Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1


So now he is rooted download Root Browser.

And now use Root Browser to delete libmedia.so, you can find him in the Root of your Open Hour Chameleon, System/lib/

There will pop up a message asking to accept or not accept root access for Root Browser, click on YES.

Then download a special made libmedia.so, and place that in System/lib/ with Root Browser.

Now download a special made Kodi 14.0 Beta1 and install him.


Ok power off your Open Hour Chameleon and when he is done booting set the audio settings (not in Kodi) on HDMI Bitstream
(for S/PDIF users set him on S/PDIF Passthrough in Audio settings), and then start Kodi (the special version).

Go to Settings/System and set Settings level to Expert.

Now go to Settings/System/Audio output set the audio output to 2.0 (setting to 5.1 causes lag on sd streams) and enable Enable
passthrough
and then Dolby digital (AC3) capable Receiver and then Enable Dolby Digital transcoding and then DTS capable Receiver.

Also remember to change hardware acceleration to Mediacodec only in Kodi, Expert Settings for smooth playback.

Thanks to Jakemate.


Good luck guys and girls, and have a great Android TV BOX with Kodi with Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1


Dolby Digital 5.1 Sound Test file : MEGA link

DTS 5.1 Sound Test file: MEGA link


Problems:

1: There is one problem, if your movie have 2 audio sources like Dolby Digital and DTS and the movie starts on Dolby Digital, you cannot
put him on DTS, because then you are thrown out of Kodi.

2: You cannot Rewind or Fast Forward more then 2 a 3x if you go faster you are kicked out of Kodi.

Thanks for this solution, but I think it should be integrated in the next Firmware (hopefully).

Yes what i can read HERE it also works with S/PDIF, but you have to set him on S/PDIF Passthrough in Audio settings of your Open Hour Chameleon.

WARNING: Do not try this or you will have to restore your box with firmware 1.05 recovery software.

I tried Beelink r89 firmware.

It also screwed up another card which had 1.07 after I tried to boot on OH firmwarem

Y'know, I think, I think that a week from now, you'll be less in the mood for being amusing.
