Audio support for suround sound (5.1 / 7.1)

Postby salundy » Tue Nov 20, 2012 9:16 am

It´s possible with this unit through HDMI or optical output to listen real suround sound?
All the other TV sticks can only put out stereo sound (PCM 2.0).
Does anybody own the Neo X5 Box to test it for me?
Can i use the RC11 Fly mouse to have all functions like the Minix A1, or should i buy also the Minix A1 Fly Mouse? Both devices do look alike.

Thanks

Does your receiver display any of the following symbols or logos: DTS, Dolby Digital, DD 5.1, Neo 6.1 or anything similar.

Yea its says "DTS-HD Master audio" and "DOLBY True HD Prologic IIZ" - IDK if the receiver is using them though because my receivers settings honestly confuse the shit out of me lol. But when I set it to DTS I can hear audio from my center channel and my two floors but not my back rears - im probably using the receiver wrong though because not even my apple tv has good audio when only on PLII I can only get loud audio if it is set to external stereo and then the logo for DOLBY disappears? So IDK

According to the facebook page of Minixtech, both Android 4.1 and Rk3066 can coop with ac3 dolby surround, but it seems to be a problem to get it to work. It has their attention, but I think they are busy with other things at the moment.
