Hello,

I use CCWGT with a Beamer ( BenQ Th585 ) and  Logitech z906 5.1 system.

I cannot get 5.1 however I try.  I was reading some articles and some say forcing passthrough via Kodi helps.

Is there any suggestions ?

Use a HDMI switch with audio extractor, digital optical and digital coaxial outputs built-in.

This will help you with Dolby Digital and DTS soundtracks.

However you will not be able to enjoy surround sound encoded in Dolby Digital Plus, used by Netflix and other streaming services, because your Logitech sound system can decode only Dolby Digital and DTS.
