    FWIW, the "-H" in the end of the AMLogic line chip model code/name/alias means "Dolby certified".

    yes,you're right.

    Pass through should be working with Amplifiers' decoders.

    Decoding itself needs the chips certified by Dolby or DTS,as The Amlogic S802-H is the first certified SoC solution available to STB and OTT box manufacturers featuring DTS-HD decoding technology.

    The Brain.. is correct
    Most of my devices are doing passthrough
    ( box spdif --> 5.1 dolby/dts/thx --> Amp or soundbar) or ( USBdac --> headphone )

    And dolby and DTS are lic free ( if I remember correctly )
    Thats why the made new ones like Atmos

    Still.. if its a software issue...there should be a solution

    For Amlogic,it produced some specific chips with Dobly and DTS after paying.

    Without licence,most chips shall never passthrough HD audio codes.

    It's a money issue.
    It's not that.

    You don't need licence to passthrough, only to decode.

    There are (or will be) 2 versions of Mi TV Stick.

    The one specified by the OP will be the 4K version, with S905Y2 SoC and 2 GB RAM.

    The one already available is 1080p only, with S805Y and 1 GB RAM.

    ohhh... don't say that. I won't buy on principal that 1GB Ram is circa 2015 not 2020, lol.

    The Tv stick only has PCM - Dolby - Dolby plus - DTS sound options

    I have the Mi connected to the Tv using a Side HDMI port ( because the TV is connected to wall, cannot access back )
    The TV is connected to Soundbar... the Bar lights says : Surround - Dolby prologic 2 ( no matter whats played )
    - Have not found any DD/DTS content to play - unable to get Cast to work ( soundbar also has a light for Dolby/DTS )
    After I boought my soundbar.. my AVR has been collecting dust and is no longer connected to TV

    I played... many hours of Youtube ( So, many ads ) Then switched to Smart youtube tv ( installed using Downloader FTVnews )
    Then many more hours Netflix.. In stalled Kodi... watched TWitch live stream for about 2h ( RoomTemp between 24 up 30c )
    No issues at all... ( with Stats for nerds enabled.. shows little to no frame drops )
    Video quality. abit less then Firestick 4K, mostly seen with quick movements on the screen
    Voice controle works... even on Dutch
    Subtitle on Netflix.. working

    Some Nags:
    Browsing Google play using text.. It brings Up two different Onscreen Keyb
    The Remote Back button.. On the apple tv and firestick the are placed left... but on the Mi the are middle
    Sometimes it loses connection to remote...that give a short animation (2s) on tv ( hold 2 button ) even during movie
    Unable to uninstall Google play music ( this service will end sept.. I here )

    As it stands... Im quite impressed

    DTS-HD MA and TrueHD format are only going to be on top dollar boxes, NvidiaShield, Beelink GS King, and Zidoo high-end players.

    The chip S805Y2 that is the recently released 1gb/8gb device is basically an S905+S805 hybrid, new release of the same old technology for bottom tier media player chip.
    The Beelink GS King does NOT passthrough the HD audio codecs........ Unless you are running CoreELEC on it.

    thanks

    -it should arrive next week..

    Note : the specs say Amlogic S805Y2 with 1 GB of ram ( Not like the first post states S905Y2 with 2GB )

    Cheers
