CoreELEC 8.95.4.42


#21

With 8.95.4.42 i no longer have the option to set Kodi to 3840x2160@60Hz, i was using a recent nightly build (from Nov 5 i think) and didn’t have this problem. Anything special you need me to set so i can post logs?

EDIT: Just tested nightly_20181108 from @relkai and i can set 3840x2160@60Hz just fine


#22

The nightlies doesn’t include the auto switching patches from OSMC and are still using the old method.
The version of cdu13a is much more advanced regarding colorspace/bit rate/refresh rate/resolution switching, but heavily relies on correct EDID information provided by TVs/AVRs.

Therefore we know, this refresh rate is working fine in the nightlies, but e.g. doesn’t automatically switch to HDR like cdu13a’s version.


#23

Sorry, but I find this confusing. Which is the version of cdu13a?

IMHO the nightly version should be the bleeding edge version for you and users to test stuff. Nightly implies that breakage is to be expected and anyone testing it should be aware of that, as opposed to the release versions.

i don’t see the latest release versions as “screwups”, either. There are no grave coding errors as such, but they rather reveal that TV hardware is not as standardized as commonly thought. So release versions should be treated as permanent beta versions.

If anybody needs to have a wifey factor, i.e. total availabilty, you may need to be reminded that the underlying KODI itself of current versions is not a stable version. You should stick to tried and trusted KODI Krypton for AMLOGIC which works just fine.


#24

The version of cdu13a is the one from this thread (8.95.4.42).
It is behind the nightlies in other aspects, because it doesn’t include the newest commits.
Therefore the nightlies are still “bleeding edge” except for the auto switching patches.

Because cdu13a heavily develops the auto switching feature at the moment, it makes sense to have all tests being done against the same GitHub commit and only his newest changes added.
It is a different development branch to test just this one specific feature.
If it was included in the nightlies, there could have been different results because of other commits.

As soon as all bugs are sorted out, it will be merged to the stable/nightly builds, of course.


#25

I made a add-on this worked to back 4Kh50/60 8.95.4.2 / 8.95.4.3 / 8.95.4.4.


#26

@HeresJohnny The 8.95.4.42 release is a continuation of trying to fix a feature that never quite worked right in the 8.95.4.x releases.

The nightly builds as you say are bleeding edge, but they are the bleeding edge of what will be the next release. That auto switching feature has since been removed from the master branch of the CoreELEC code until it can be made to work better. Since it currently is not expected to be part of the next release, it no longer appears in the nightly builds.


#27

Black Screen is not fixed for me.
1080p is OK, 2180p not.

Use a H96pro+, Sony 65XF9500 and a Denon x1400.

Im a little bit confused. In a further Version i dont have the 30hz Problem in Kodi. Before 8.95.4 i have >4K60Hz in Kodi.
On TV and AVR i dont have change some Settings. So i think it is a Problem (?) with new Coreelec or Kodi >Feature.

Whats your Opinion?

Same issue here. My TV is 2017. Before 8.95.4 it worked fine. Problem sticking at 8.95.3 is that you cannot install some addons using the older version because of dependency issues.

https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/support/televisions-projectors-lcd-tvs-android-/kd-49xe8004/specifications

I just looking at the settings on my Denon AVR to see if there is anything i can change


#31

Hello,

i became a test version of coreelec. This Version works very fine.
The Version 9.95.5 will be stable within i hink.


#32

I have checked my Denon AVR X2300W and i believe any video conversion is off.


#33

I think you have to set “Video Mode” to “Bypass”!

#34

@cdu13a

Result! Issue resolved in CoreELEC-S905.arm-9.0-devel-1541942153.tar (funhouse).

Can confirm 2160p@60hz and no black screen issues running through Denon AVR

Nice work


#35

You need to set your AVR to “Bypass” as paul69 said, otherwise you may not get HDR and won’t get 10bit output.


#36

I tried on bypass and it made no difference to the 2160p@60hz, switched back to auto but will set it to bypass to make sure HDR works correctly.

That development release works on Auto for 2160p@60hz through my Denon AVR.

Thanks


#37

It would be interesting to know whether it’ll also switch into 10 bit mode correctly.
What you should see is a 10bit YUV422 signal when viewing 4K HDR/10 bit content.


#38

@TheCoolest

Its looking good so far. See https://discourse.coreelec.org/t/no-60hz-at-3840x2160p/2300


#42

Hi.

Works fine with mecool k1 pro -> Yamaha RX-A3070 -> LG65UH6159, HDMI pass through on Amp, Deep Colour checked on TV.

Problem with 2160p/50Hz solved, thanks.

When can we see support for CVBS in the new CE version?
