I mostly use Vero to play original bluray m2ts files. I just played, or tried to play, Depeche Mode Tour of the Universe which is AVC encoded and plays at 29.970 fps. At the beginning it plays alright but after a while audio gets out of sync with video. The info text shows that a lot of frames are skipped and dropped constantly. After a while playback of audio and video stutters incredibly.
Last night I watched a movie (AVC encoded, 24 fps) and that one went alright.
All content is on hard drives directly connected to Vero USB.
If you have any text screens up, such as the information screen, it will most likely have problems trying to deinterlace a 1080i signal and display the overlay. But 1080i at ~30fps may be approaching the limit of what the vero hardware can deinterlace regardless.
There was another performance thread on the board (which I can’t find) where the performance of deinterlacing was discussed along with some of the theoretical limits of the hardware.
The “Vero performance” thread is gone and I think we’re out of luck. The Vero’s hardware isn’t up to the task from what I’ve gleaned from the data sheets and posts.
I have many H.264 1080P home movies and regardless of the source the Vero can not handle the video which lags the audio more the longer the clip is.
I have a PI-B and a PI-2 both of which work fine with with this higher resolution content.
Hi glens5, I had a PI-B but somehow it crashed for some reason and I can’t use it anymore. That’s why I was relieved for the Vero to come. I wasn’t pleased that after I preordered, PI-B2 came out. But I had faith that the Vero would be alround fully functional and very performing. I have the Vero now for quite a while and I can only conclude that it performs worse than the old PI-B!!
Again, mr. Nazarko, please tell me the Vero will be meeting my expectations soon after any of the nearest updates.
The Vero does work well for most content and is much more stable and capable than the PI-B but not for the aforementioned high definition.
I am convinced the problem is hardware related in the GPU and if a software fix was possible we’d have seen it by now.
