My Odroid N2+ and CE 19.4 will not pass HDR10+, only HDR10. For verification purposes, I have the N2+ connected directly to the display (Samsung Q70T). I also have a Zidoo ZX9 and it properly passes HDR10+ when connected using the same HDMI cable, same ports on the TV, and playing the same files.
I have both HDR > SDR and SDR > HDR turned off in Kodi.
Any ideas on what could be the cause?
HDR10+ works correctly on CE since… A long time. 19.4 is not the most recent stable version of CE. 19.5_rc2 is. Just fyi, display info on CE19/20 4.9 kernel shows HDR10+ as HDR10 even though it’s passing HDR10+ to the tv (confirmed on the tv).
Thanks for confirming it should be working. I’m using the TV also to validate HDR10+ (it shows an indicator). I’ve updated to 19.5rc2 and even tried the nightlies with no difference. Would there be any value in doing a complete wipe of the boot drive and reinstalling CE?
I have the box connected directly to the TV’s HDMI port. I swapped with a cable going to a different HDMI port, and still no HDR10.
I tested the same video using Kodi running on an Nvidia Shield, and my TV shows HDR10.
What else can I be missing?
Check the HDR to SDR settings and other stuff in video. Try to return to default. You can also try a fresh image in a uSD just to see if it’s some setting that is wrong. I have multiple devices and no problem getting HDR.
I tested my Beelink GTmini2 (Amlogic S905X3), running CE Nexus from microSD card. Box connected directly to HDMI input #4, still no HDR display on my TV.
I switched to Android running on same device. Playing the same video using Kodi, I get HDR10 displayed on my TV.
Edit: I switched back to CoreELEC and bingo, CE is now showing HDR10. I do have buffering on some of my high bitrate videos, can that be the cause of not using the HDR setting??
My media is stored on external hard drives connected to a mini PC. All of my devices are connected via Cat 6 ethernet cables.
