Bug report

Describe the bug

There’s a issue with Kodi 18.3 (and 19.0 alpha) where the UI showing play time is showing the seconds going up and down extremely fast for DTSHD (and both DTSHD and TrueHD in 19.0 alpha). The progress bar at top of music screen is also jumping forward and back as it progresses. This occurs using Aeon Nox Silvo and Estuary.

My tests were using mka files containing DTS-HDMA audio (and TrueHD audio in Kodi 19.0 alpha (LibreElec Milhouse build)

The same audio contained in an MKV file and played with Kodi video player does NOT exhibit same issue.

Expected Behavior

Here is a clear and concise description of what was expected to happen:

The UI showing play time and progress bar should increment 1 second every second.

Actual Behavior

The UI showing play time and progress bar increments up and down (very fast), the overall progress continues to increase but flickering up and down.

Possible Fix

To Reproduce

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Play an mka file containing DTS-HDMA audio

Sample mka Files containing DTS-HDMA, DTS:X, TrueHD and Atmos:

I am playing with Kodi Audio set to HDMI passthrough with DTS-HD and TrueHD capable AVR enabled.

This issue was solved when I set Kodi's TV setting to 1080p 60Hz (it was set to 2160p 24Hz)
