Description (last modified by outcave)

Hi. I'm using the latest (at today) Android nightlies (arm64-v8a) of Kodi 18 on Nvidia Shield. Kodi is configured for audio passtrought for Dolby Digital and DTS, so both Dolby Digital and DTS will pass over HDMI passtrought. 'Adjust display refresh rate' is setted to Start/Stop. If I put in play a movie with DTS audio during playing a Dolby Digital movie, no audio is heard.

More in details, Kodi will not go to switch from Dolby Digital (currently movie in play) to DTS (movie that i'm going to play). On my AVR I still see "Dolby Digital" instead to see "DTS".

To reproduce:

  1. Start Kodi
  2. Put in play a movie with Dolby Digital audio track
  3. During that movie playing go to your library (so your movie play remains playing in backgruond)
  4. Choose to play a movie with DTS audio track
  5. Now the DTS movie will play but Kodi will not switch to DTS (from Dolby Digital) then no audio is heard

The issue is also in the opposite direction: hear digital noise when play a Dolby Digital movie if a DTS movie is already playing

In others words Kodi will not go to detect the audio change, it reopen the sink, but still tell the old stream format.
