    Does anyone know what is holding back the passthrough or playback of HD audio on the new Apple TV? I know certain apps (Infuse, MrMC and Kodi) are already able to passthrough DTS and Dolby Digital AC3, but so far there have been none that are able to do the same with DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD.

    Is it a matter of developers not implementing the feature in their software codes yet or is it a limitation of tvOS at the moment (which would only be resolved via a software update from Apple)?

    Haven't heard myself, but there's lots of stuff that comes up in a Google search...

    I have a theory. It has to do with the new corporate offices and server space. It's just a theory, but I like to give them the benefit of the doubt from time to time. :apple:

    Probably not until it is supported by the likes of Netflix, Hulu, HBO etc.

    I'm sure the hardware is capable, but doubt it's enabled for devs.
