Target version:-


Since a lot of people watching fullHD or 4K movies usually have a 5.1 sound system (or more, or similar like soundbars), a lot of TV producers implement audio passthrough feature that lets audio systems handle the audio track.
Personally I have an ATMOS soundbar and I feel the difference while playing a movie with bult-in Sony TV app and Movian.
So I'm requesting this feature that can improve an already excellent app.
Great work Andreas!
