--- Comment #18 from js@jschneider.com ---
Audio passthrough with Dolby Digital is not working for me with kodi 20 /
ffmpeg 6.  I'm getting no audio when passthrough is enabled and configured
correctly. 
Attached my kodi.log file.

How about using existing port ffmpeg4 (currently at 4.4.4) with kodi instead of
current ffmpeg port which is now at 6?

I'm using recommended settings for my set up as stated on
https://kodi.wiki/view/Audio_quickstart_guide. I've set output device to my
HDMI device, set "Number of Channels" to 2, disabled "Stereo upmix", enabled
"Dolby Digital (AC3) capable receiver" and "Enable Dolby Digital transcoding".

The same settings worked great for me with Kodi 18 / ffmpeg 4.3 and exact same
hardware and setup.

If I unset "Enable Dolby Digital transcoding" I get audio from front speakers,
but no surround sound.
