Peter, yes I confirmed those settings. They where in the correct
configuration before I started messing with things today. By themselves
they didn't improve my situation.
However, GOOD NEWS, when I selected
Android setting -> Display and Sound -> Advanced -> Fixed volume ON
Then I'm in Michael's situation. I start playback and my receiver misses
the stream type. BUT no more fuzz, just silence. That's a big
improvement. Then I play / pause and I'm of to the races, full
DolbyDigital passthrough. For now this is very usable. Just have to
educate my family.
Let me know if you need help debugging this further. I'm happy to help.
