NUC7i5bnh on Android

I am running Android 7.1 RC2 on my NUC. I know it's not an officially supported OS yet, but I am hoping to find some advice nonetheless. I am not opposed to buying an adapter - anything to find a solution.

I have it running very well now, except for one thing. Audio works, but I can't change the volume using my Rii i8+ remote. More specifically, it goes only from 0 to 100. It won't go to anything in between. One click volume up goes to 100, one click volume down goes to 0. I don't think it's anything specific to the remote...just an issue with HDMI audio currently. I have a soundbar. The soundbar does have an optical input, which I am currently using for my cable box. I am willing to switch it over for the NUC, but I believe the NUC does not have an optical audio port. Do I have any options there? Or any other suggestions for a workaround? Thanks much in advance for any advice. I'm not looking for "switch to a different OS". I have used Windows, LibreElec, and even tried a couple of Linux distros on the NUC. I think overall Android is going to suit me best...just need to get past this one challenge.

In order to try to fix this problem we can try a BIOS update to the latest version 0061, using the F7 method:



Just to let you know, the drivers that we have available in our web site were created to work with Windows as operating system:



If the problem persists after trying the BIOS update, then the next thing to do will be to submit your inquiry on Android forums support:



Any further questions, please let me know.
