I am currently experimenting with the old dirty region (DR) settings and the new smart redraw (SR) option in advanced settings because I can‘t solve the subtitle issues (some frame drops) a 100%. Well I can actually with DR = 0 but idle temps skyrocket from 61 degrees to 78 degrees because the Vero 4k continues rendering in idle if I disable DR with the 0 setting.
Now I can‘t find any clarification what disabling DR means for the SR option, which is meant as a successor to DR. If I disable DR in advanced settings, it seems that SR then also does not work because of mentioned high idle temps.
The question is, what is active if I have nothing at all in the advanced settings, Idle temps then drop to a respectable 61 degrees. Is that the result of the old default of DR = 3 or is SR active by default with nothing in advanced settings? Or is it a combination of both?
If I add smart redraw = true in advanced settings (without adding any DR setting), I get comparably low idle temp. But it really is not clear to me this then mean regarding dirtyregions.
Puttings both, DR = 0 and SR = true in advanced settings results in high idle temps. In other words, SR has no effect… which is kinda odd because DR=0 should disable DR and make room for SR. It is like the second line regarding SR doesn‘t even get recognized.
So long story short, what are the default settings in osmc especially for the Vero 4k when there is nothing in advanced settings? What is enabled/disabled regarding DR and SR?
The reason behind all this is not only idle temps but subtitle rendering. Only with DR = 0 it is flawless without frame drops… but I can‘t get the idle temps down again, no matter what I add or not add regarding Smart Redraw when DR = 0 is active. SR = true seems to be a bit better than nothing at all in advanced settings but it is definately not perfect with subs.
Any clarification on what is enabled by default (e.g. empty advanced settings) would at least help to narrow down the issue.
What I need is getting rid of dirty regions completely (just go to hell, lol) but have smart redraw active in idle. I don‘t mind the Vero 4k hitting higher temps when watching a video because I never do that for more than 2 hours straight… but having idle temps just barely below usuage temps is not acceptable for me.
Thanks in advance for an help or info
