Hello to the community;
I have an LG 70UM7450PLA model TV with Sony STR-DN1080 receiver working flawlessly.
(HDMI-CEC On, Connected to HDMI ARC Port)
Recently I have added an Odroid N2 (Coreelec loaded) Set Top Box.
When the STB is connected directly to TV via HDMI. I can use the magic remote via HDMI-CEC and all works fine, but only Multichannel AAC Coded Videos. (All other formats like DTS, DD 5.1, Atmos etc. passthrough to my receiver fine, via the TV). But the Multichannel 7.1 AAC videos are sent to the TV as Multichannel PCM but it is not correctly passed through to the receiver. Ex: No sound on Surround and Centre channels on a 5.1 PCM Video
When I connect Odroid N2 directly to the receiver. the above issue is resolved, but this time I cannot use the magic remote to control the Odroid via HDMI-CEC. (The CEC feature is enabled in the receiver as well.)
Thanks in advance for any suggestions to both use magic remote & have multichannel PCM pass-through with above devices.
Note: The setup was working very well with my old Zidoo X8 and I wanted to switch to a Coreelec only system.
