I’ve always been able to play 4K movies/shows and now suddenly it doesn’t work. When I try to play something 4K I get no video and the audio is very intermittent/glitchy.
I can play 1080p content or less it seems (I didn’t do extensive testing but I watched a couple of things). I think HDR was working too (I have Arcane in 1080p with HDR and that was working). I don’t know if it’s something with the resolution specifically.
I didn’t change anything in Kodi or any hardware/connections on the Vero. I did change some picture setting on my TV (Sony X90J) but I wouldn’t know what the setting were before to switch them back exactly. They weren’t factory defaults though I did try using a Standard picture setting (reset to factory defaults) but that didn’t help.
Now I did update to the October version (was on the March one before) to see if it would help but it didn’t.
This likely doesn’t mean anything but I was able to get it working for about 15 seconds once by immediately hitting OK on the remote twice (like how you normally pause playback) after selecting the file. I guess I managed to pause it the instant it loaded. While paused, the video suddenly appeared and when I unpaused it ran for about 15 seconds before the problem kicked in again. But every other time the remote didn’t do anything and I have to shut off the TV to get back to the file system within Kodi.
I did get a log of me trying to play Avengers Endgame and then having to shut down the TV (not sure how that affects Kodi/the log):
I found another topic talking about Overscan and I tried playing with the X90J’s settings (Full Pixel was the mode to use I believe it was called) but it didn’t help. I tried rebooting, shutting down, unplugging the power entirely to the Vero and all peripherals. I have a powered USB hub and two powered HDDs connected to it with my content. But like I said this isn’t a new setup, it was working fine before.
So I’m stuck now, I’ve been able to fix other problems I’ve had but this one I can’t figure out unfortunately.
