I would think that if you don’t see this issue when running Windows 10 then it has to be drives related, Intel doesn’t provide drivers for Linux and Linux operating system validation is limited.
I would recommend that you try drivers and patches available at: https://01.org/linuxgraphics/downloads/2016q4-intel-graphics-stack-recipe this is the only recommendation I have at the moment.
I hope this helps.
I just purchased a NUC6CAYH and installed ubuntu 16.04.2
Multi-channel (5.1 or 7.1) audio dolby digital and dts do NOT make it to my Yamaha receiver from Kodi.
I think the "assumed answered" status on the original question is incorrect. It certainly misled me into thinking nuc multi-channel sound worked under ubuntu. I'm certainly feeling buyer remorse!
I've tried disabling pulseaudio and using alsa instead per this:
I certainly got different options in Kodi's system/settings/system/audio output, but Kodi starts up with a red 'no sound' icon in the upper right corner and no changes I can make will turn that off. And no sound at all.
Edit: May 29 -
With the stock config of pulseaudio, I never got anything higher than stereo via HDMI.
somehow, struggling with different settings, the volume in Kodi got turned off. That's what the red 'no sound' icon means. After turning the volume to max, I DID get 5.1 (dts and ac3) working via hdmi in Kodi. I NEVER got optical Toslink working at all.
I disabled pulseaudio per above link, and chose the following in Kodi's system/settings/system/audio output/
Audio output device: "HDA Intel PCH, GSM LG TV on HDMI #0"
Number of channels: 5.1
Output configuration: optimized
Stereo upmix: not selected
Maintain original volume on downmix: selected
Resample quality: medium
keep audio device alive: 1 minute
play gui sounds: never
Enable passthrough: selected
Passthrough output device: "HDA Intel PCH, GSM LT TV on HDMI #0"
Dolby digital (ac3) capable receiver: selected
and everything else capable receiver: selected...
I suspect, unless you also own and LG TV, you might see your own device on HDMI #0.
While playing a video, press keyboard "Enter", select speaker icon to get "Audio and subtitle settings" dialog. I chose the following:
Volume at: 0.0 dB
"Enable passthrough" selected
Have you checked for updated graphics/audio driver package(s)?
Have you tried installing the Ubuntu 17.04 release instead?
No to updated graphics/audio driver packages - mostly because I haven't found anything nicely packaged that can be installed and removed via apt-get. I'm not into fiddling around with low-level drivers manually.
No for Ubuntu 17.
