Dropped frames

#1

I have started noticing dropped frames when I watch a movie with my Vero4k+. It only happens like once or twice during a movie and it only drops like one frame, so I might miss it some times when there are static scenes. If I rewind the movie and watch the same part again, there is no dropped frame. Anyone experienced this?

#2

could this be the same issue? Dropped frames caused by subtitle rendering

#3

Hard to speculate without more details such as a log

#4

There was no subtitles on the movie I watched yesterday so it isn’t related to subtitles.

How do I enable silent logging? I don’t want to watch a whole movie with statistic data in the left upper corner

Yes I have this issue, and have had it for ages with both Vero and Vero 4K+. Most people don’t notice it. I do, unfortunately.

#7

There was a render bug which causes two frames to be out of order once every so often. This was quietly fixed in May. Sure you’ve seen it since then?

#8

Definitely. Saw it last week when watching a movie. It’s so infrequent I expect 99% of people not to notice. It was easier when dropped frames were shown correctly in the debug screen.

#9

Any movie? I’ve got a script that tails dmesg to warn when this happens; so I can check this again pretty quickly

Yeah Aladdin Blu-ray (not UHD) I think was the last one that did it.

Cool, will check it.
