With the latest update we enable “Adjust Refresh Rate” to ensure that always the best Video quality is displayed. This requires Resolution/Refreshrate to be adjusted when a Video starts having a different Resolution/Refresh Rate from the GUI settings.
You should not have a need for calibration
It seems you have a issue with Overscan. Ensure that you did not have any calibration configuration in Kodi/OSMC and use one of the following methods depending on the TV Brand you use.
Samsung TV - go to Menu / Picture / Picture Options / Size / Screen Fit (instead of 16:9).
LG TV - go to Settings / Picture / Aspect Ratio / Just Scan (instead of 16:9)
Sony TV - hit Home button, go to Settings / Screen / Display Area / Full Pixel
Sharp TV - hit View Mode button, select “Dot by Dot” or “Full screen”
Sharp Aquos - go to Menu / System Options / View Option / View Mode / Dot by Dot
Panasonic TV - go to Menu / Picture / Screen Settings / 16:9 Overscan / Off`
The only thing that changed is that Settings - Player - Video - Adjust Refresh Rate was set to On Start/Stop which ensures best picture quality by your TV switching Resolution/Refresh Rate aligned to the video source.
Monitor Mode seems to be limited to PC resolutions which might not be best for your movies. So you might want to adjust that.
The Monitor mode in the Philips TV, is not necessarily just for PCs, it is actually also meant to “view the video source as is”, that is without any modification. The video source in this case is the Vero 4k+.
Like SanPe, i also don’t have any issue with the OSMC skin, meaning i can switch back to the Monitor mode while no video is being played. When a video is being played, it takes about 1-2 seconds longer than usual before the video starts playing. I believe the so-called caliberation(not sure if that’s the right name for it) actually happens within that 1-2 seconds. While the video is playing, it is now no more possible to choose the Monitor mode because it is greyed out, which was never the case.
In short, since the new update, the Monitor mode on the TV can not be selected while playing a video on the Vero. This only happens while a video file is being played
I’m sorry, deleting the guisettings.xml file caused me to switch back to the default OSMC skin. It seemed to me that the calibration problem was not present on that skin, whereas it was on Estuary.
In fact, the Estuary skin has elements very close to the edge of the screen, which is not the case with OSMC. So the problem is still there - although less annoying - with the OSMC skin.
But I just found an option that seems to go in your direction. Indeed, I modified the setting of the Zoom of the interface to -4%. There is no more problem whatever the skin, whatever the video played. Indeed, despite the change of resolution, with this setting of the zoom, the interface remains calibrated.
