    Go to Digital audio auto-detection (within Android's Settings, then Advanced tab), turn it back to OFF, then the line below (Digital Audio Output) set to SPDIF passthrough. If I've got an HDMI lead and an optical lead in at the same time, this settings allows the TOSLINK digital audio out (optical lead) to work in general. Within the Android app from YouTube, audio is produced from my amp. In Kodi, using default settings with SPDIF passthrough set, 5.1 (AAC encoded, Looper rip from Navi-X). This worked, however I couldn't tell about DD encoding as my hardware predates that. A few people have mentioned in the forum the importance of needing to set Number of Channels: to 2.0 in Kodi's System area, then System again and Audio Output. Please click "Reset above settings to default" first, then double check channels is (confusingly) set to 2.0.
