RE: 20150420 (1.0.24) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
In the known issues section this line should be edited:
- SPMC HD Audio support require Koying to enable that in SPMC.
- We are trying to get relevant code and instructions from RockChip to Koying.

if you are indeed doing that.

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.

Hi. I still get only DD or DTS with SPMC which I believe is an SPMC issue not OHC. When using the native player however I now get HD audio without any issues Smile. Great result as far as I am concerned - thanks.

I confirm, I also tried the ROM provided by Pop110, with SPMC comes only audio DD - DTS.
Another thing, I have no idea if it is a problem only my own, but with the revision 23/24 no longer works AirMouse.

RE: 20150420 (1.0.24) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
On my setup, I get the same behavior with .23 and .24 . DTS-HD blinks for a second on my Pioneer reciever but it disapeears and I guet no audio.

What seems to be a new bug on version 23/24, is that if I select SPDIF (on both OHC and the Receiver), there is nothing else being transmitted. I reverted to version .13 and DTS/DD are back working normally (via SPDIF).

I tried using SMBC
SMBC then added the MKV File with DTSHD Soundtrack as an added video
this gives me just dts

if i go thru OHC file explorer to the share file
and use the core player to play it
i get Loud static
even after i stop the video

have to reboot the OHC to get rid of the loud static sound

RE: 20150420 (1.0.24) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
Unrelated to this specific firmware, but it looks like you don't loose passthrough (non HD) on frame refresh switch if you're using optical/ SPDIF.

That's correct as you are using SPMC.

As we keep saying SPMC playback is not what we are talking about when discussing firmwares. There we are talking about native player.

SPMC needs work to get HD audio if it gets the sources etc. from Rockchip for Koying to add it.

So dont report or expect HD audio from SPMC. You should get DD or AC3 from SPMC with HD audio. If you are not then that's something to report in SPMC section.

Confirmed (with sync disabled), still get really bad audio issues when using SPMC. Cannot use native player as it decodes little and like you I'm connected direct to TV not with any AVR to decode or do a quality job of outputting to one standard. So I cannot tell if its firmware or SPMC only.

Can anyone confirm what is known as a variety of terms from disco effect, looping, stutter, gaps, etc in audio playback of any audio track in any container is still present. Using downmix direct to TV. Those with AVR may never experience this of course.

Koying, this is correct. I am using version .13 and SPDIF works flawlessly (either with native player or SMPC). You can use frequency switching and it does not affect SPDIF at all.

On the other hand SPDIF is not working properly on firmwares .23/.24 (at least on my setup).

? The receiver tells me DTS-HD on playing a DTS-HD ISO-BD, shouldn't it?
