I’ve just switched as a long-time Libreelec user and now running 9.0.3 on Odroid C2. Seems to be working quite well but I occasionally I get a blank screen with audio when trying to play some content.
It seems to have been resolved at least partly by adding all of my TV’s supported resolutions into the whitelist. However I read this post last night so I removed them all again. Now 80% of my videos play fine but a few clips like this 4k trailer just show a black screen with audio only. As a side note, the TV does not also switch to 4k when playing that trailer and other 4k content instead showing it in 1080P. I tried connecting the C2 direct to the ARC input on the TV and again, TV only notifies 1080P on 4k playback.
Should we have whitelisted resolutions under 9.0.3? If not, is there another solution for blank screens on some content?
Odroid C2 is connected to a Sony STR-DN1060 amplifier (on the only HDCP 2.2 input) and then to a 2yr old Sony 4k TV on the ARC HDMI input. Adjust display refresh rate – on start/stop activated.
This is what is being reported to CE.
