Okay I am able to play DTS and DD both in 5.1 in kodi.

It is not important wich HDMI I use with my nvidia-shieldtv androidtv box. So ARC is not revelant for this.
What I need to do is to enable passthough in my kodi 18.6. Also I have to set the "Output configuration" to "Best Match" or "Optimized".

I can set my nvidia-shieldtv androidtv box to 2 different audio settings:
-Automatic
-Manual (here I can choose for example DTS, DD, EAC3 and so on)
It is nesseary for me to select automatic to be able to play DTS-5.1 or DD-5.1 in kodi.

When I play a title in DTS or DD I need to select the right one in the Samsung output menu.

@zoelechat some questions:
-Is it normal that I got the same results with none parameter, auto or dts parameter?
-Is the idea behind the auto parameter to set dts or dd on its own?
-Is there a chance to set DTS, DD or PCM with a terminal command? Can I use your libSpdifMode viewtopic.php?f=63&t=8815 for that?

Well I don't know how behaves Shield audio selection (does it recode?) therefore auto sounds good to me :)
I think best option is to get rid of DTS, and tell Kodi to recode everything (or at least surround tracks) to AC3, such option exists IIRC.
Then you can reliably use libSpdifMode to instant switch output mode as if your were doing it manually deep in tv menu.
I do NOT receive any PM. Please use forum.

THX for the reply.

SUCCESS! :D

Bought an FeinTech VAX00102 HDMI 2.0 Audio Extractor, ARC compatible on amazon(de). A nice device!

It has an HDMI for my ShiueldTV device and a HDMI-OUT to the TV. Also there are OPTICAL+Coaxial output to my Sound-System.
Technically I am now able to play DTS-5.1 and DD-5.1 on my old 'teufel' sound-system in:
kodi - DTS-5.1 & DD5.1
netflix - DD5.1 with help of a special "hack"
AmazonVideoPrime - DD5.1 with help of a special "hack


Special lib-shieldTV hack, see here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/shield ... l-t3894442
At the end I did not need this lib-hack here.

But when you solve one problem there is a next one :D
When I change from TV to HDMI or startup my TV (F-Series) I got this message, see here:
