Audio passthrough

    Hi everyone,
    After lots of hours wasted, it appears that MacOS Big Sur running on Mac Pro 2020 is not capable of passing through HD audio to the soundbar. Kodi only shows AC and DTS passthrough which is not what I am after.

    As such, I decided to install Parallels as I know that Windows doesn't have an issue doing that. However, when I connect my laptop to the soundbar (which is connected via eARC to my TV), the sound output doesn't change to 'Default, SONY 30' like it does on the native OS. Hence, there are no passthrough options as the sound isn't recognised to be external.

    I am very new to Parallels and am unaware of its limitations, however a few people on Kodi forums indicated running it without issues. Do I need to install any additional drivers?
