Question What correct audio options do I set for KODI 19 for passthrough dolby

Hi
All
I am really confused about the Kodi settings for passthrough
I have the A95X F4 Android box and a demon receiver
I am running Kodi 19.4 on Android 11

When I select 7.1 channels in Kodi The receiver shows the signal as Multi IN and PCM
I have a 7.1 setup

All the passthrough options are enabled
When I change the channels to 2.0 in Kodi it works fine and the receiver shows Dolby without PCM

How was every setting up Kodi, please
Is it normal to set 2.0 channels when enabling passthrough?
I am confused as after reading and more reading I do not have a conclusive answer

Please help
Thanks all

Follow the instructions here to set Kodi to Expert mode:

Then follow the instructions here to switch on all the Passthrough settings that your receiver supports (scroll well down the page to get to the Audio section):

You'll also see that the Number of Channels setting in the Audio Settings is not relevant when you enable Passthrough.

When doing pass through you cannot do frame rate matching in any way shape or form or it will change sound to pcm.

Just look at your amp if the dts-hd/tru-hd comes on your good to go.
