Hi there guys…
I have been following this thread for some time and finally got it working on a Pi3 with a cheap external BT dongle.
I am certain the challenge now face will be common to may people on this thread.
My setup is very simple at them moment:
Android phone plays music over BT
RPi3 running latest OSMC with this A2DP setup
HDMI from Pi to Hisense smart TV
I now wish to achieve the following:
HDMI (via Audio Return Channel) from Hisense TV to a Samsung Home Theatre system
Full 5.1 sound from Samsung Home Theatre system.
To date I am only getting poor output from the Samsung system. None of the sound modes result in all the speakers producing sound well.
My question is thus how to achieve 5.1 sound output via HDMI on the RPi3?
The Samsung Home Theatre cannot be relied upon to mix up to 5.1 it would seem.
Many thanks in advance.
