Lossless audio in TvOS 15

When the API details are clear, could someone comment whether the new TvOS - finally - allows pass-through or anyways something more than now?




At this point I assume it is only referring to music playback to be in sync with new iOS features. But I’m sure we will start seeing more details once people dig into the betas

Lossless audio is going to be in ALAC, which cannot be bitstreamed or passed through HDMI without decoding it first. It will still be lossless, only decoded into LPCM as you can do right now with other lossless sources with players like Infuse. I don’t think there’s anything technically new in the OS or the hardware to allow it, since apps have already been able to do exactly the same for years.
