No unfortunately. They are now saying it will be for Kodi 20.

I‘ve been listening to my Abbey Road 7.1 FLAC mix. Since adding my new amps I’ve removed my BD player from my rack so no Atmos Abbey Road can be played here now.
Ahh, no worries... Yeah I saw your new amps - they look sweet... 👌🏻 It’s prob more down to an authorising problem... There really can’t be any extra audio info in there?! If there’s a way of using an an Atmos renderer to downsample then it might be solvable someday too...

Its about double the normal Atmos bitrate. Apparently the TrueHD is packed differently for high bitrate and Kodi (and other players) doesn‘t unpack it correctly so there’s missing bits in the stream sent via HDMI for Atmos decoding. I’ve only heard this issue on Abbey Road.

Every other Atmos mix plays correctly, and I’ve heard a few dozen including most Atmos BDAs and many Atmos movies. I think this is why it hasn’t been fixed in Kodi yet, as it’s only affecting a small user group with Abbey Road.
