What is the multi-channel audio like using the HDMI connector? 5.1? 7.1?
I did some research on the iMX6 and found the HDMI output is version 1.4a. Which suggest it has HEC(Ethernet over HDMI), ARC(Audio return channel), CEC(Consumer Electronic Control), up to 8 channels of digital audio(LPCM/192Khz/24 bit audio), and various flavors of video formats. So does the UDOO Quad and OpenELEC output at least Blu-Ray quality video and audio? i.e. 1080, 5.1 audio at least, I'm hoping for 7.1 audio!
Any updates about this topic? I would like to have openelec (not to mention kodi) running on udoo quad. I've dowloaded and flashed the OpenELEC-imx6.arm-5.95.3-udoo_quad-v01 but it doesn't boot (for instance, android booted with the same uSD card). I've tried to download the OpenELEC-imx6.arm-5.95.2-udoo_quad-v01 but i land on a 404 page. Any chance to have a media player SO for the udoo quad? Tks.

Many thanks, it boots!
You are welcome.
There will be no more recent images because support for imx6 was removed in Kodi. Maybe it will be back in 2020.
Sorry to bother with this old topic - I am trying to give new life to my udoo-quad and I was trying your image.
It works great with HDMI
I am now trying to use the lvds, I un-commented the line:
but I can't get the screen ligthing up (I can feel the touch screen sensor receives power)
Do you have any hints/suggestion on how to debug it?
I am now trying to enable debug in the /flash/uEnv.txt and see if by serial I can read any log.
