Hi guys,

Own an HS251.
Connected it from HDMI to Denon AVR X4400H.
Have 5.1 surround.
AppleTV and Oppo 205 are also connected to Denon and I I I get surround.
I open the same movie from OPPO via network share from the NAS, I get surround.
I can not get surround from KODI.
Only Fronts and Center work.
What can be done?

Rookie mistake!
It was 3.1 :)
Thought it would be set automatically :)

Yep, done that, too!
Working fine.
Does it also support Atmos by any chance?
Planning to add 2 Atmos speakers.

never used the KODI on QNAP .. I have dedicated players for playback (and those do HDR+Atmos just fine, played back via DLNA from the QNAP )
