I sat down to watch my 4K rip of Dunkirk and noticed a lot of banding. So I looked online and found some advice in the following threads
I applied the following hotfix which seemed the simplest solution
Hooray the banding was gone, but boo I started getting audio drop outs and clicks all over the place.
I went off to ssh in from my Ubuntu box.
I may have originally been on a funny release as my sources.list still had stretch instead of jessie in the paths, but it was fully up to date before I applied the hotfix.
I’ve tried correctly the sources.list back to default
, updating and installing and still the hotfix issues persists.
After I applied the updates again the banding was back so I applied the banding fix detailed here
That fixed the banding but the audio was still dropping out.
I’ve restarted the film where the audio was definitely OK and it’s still clicking and I’ve tried a few other films that are also doing this now.
Hmm, I’m still getting odd pops and clicks, although not as bad as yesterday. I don’t think it’s the to as I find a it’s in a different place.
It was playing fine until it suddenly changed the resolution to 720p HDR which ended up in a black screen. I stopped the film and started it again and it started popping occasionally.

Well try restarting the Vero to see if it clears it.
Edit:still doing it after a reboot. Going to try playing the film via my PC instead
Edit2: the film played fine in Kodi on my PC, so I’m confident the rip is OK
