How well does Rock64 deal with HDR and Atmos on Kodi?
#1
I'm looking to use the Rock64 for emulation and media playback. I will be running RetroPie, Batocera, Recalbox, Lakka, or RetroArch. Which ever one runs the best, or is easiest to set up will be fine. I plan to install Kodi into which ever OS I go with. One of them even has Kodi preinstalled. The emulation capabilities of the Rock64 are just fine for my expectations but I'm curious about how well it handles HDR video and also passthrough audio with Atmos. I searched around to see what people had to say but most of the posts are from two years ago or more, and I know that development usually moves along pretty quickly so issues from two years ago may have been solved by now.

I will be playing media locally with Kodi. Files will be in h.265 10 bit with HDR and most will have Dolby Digital Plus with Atmos, some will be Dolby TrueHD with Atmos. Output will be via HDMI into a home theater receiver that fully supports the above audio codecs.

Does anybody have any recent experience with this type of setup? Any problems with either HDR or Atmos passthrough?

As my understanding, KODI (LibreElec) still not capable handle well on HDR and Atmos passthrough.
