Hi, Sorry if covered elsewhere. I have 2 questions:
Which resolution is best for the Vero 4k settings - using a 50 inch Panasonic HDR tv? (EX750) - would it be 3840 or 4096?
Some of my 1080p and 4k files suffer from motions blur and pixelation - maybe this is called tearing? Not sure of the terminology but only happens 4 or 5 times per movie - normally when there is close up high speed motion. This happens when both 3840 and 4096 resolutions are selected. Is there any way I can stop this happenning, either on my tv or the Vero? I have all the motion controls turned off on the tv.
With adjust display refresh rate option set as described, when playing a movie the resolution will change up to 4k and to the correct refresh rate as well; when you stop the movie the resolution reverts back to 1080p.
Hi. I tried this last night but whenever auto adjust refresh rate is set to on, it results in a black screen drop out with audio only. No idea if this is a Vero issue, Kodi issue or tv issue, but it’s a new TV.
Testing showed me I was wrong and indeed the adjust refresh rate has to be set to something else than off to enable Kodi switching from FullHD output to UHD output. Sorry, my bad.
On a side note, I think it’s funny the TV’s upscaler does such an awesome job I couldn’t tell until now. If you own a LG TV, point at the screen’s upper left with the remote and click, it will display aspect ratio, resolution, HDR/SDR, sound format, and BT.2020.
I remember now. My problem is my AVR does not do 50/60Hz but the TV does. So vero will re-sample 4k/50Hz to 1080p/50Hz instead of 4k/25Hz. If I set the GUI to 4k/25 the video will play at that but I get micro-stutters on slow pans and moving objects. Like you, I can’t tell the difference between the resolutions!
@smallclone just press the i button on the Panny remote to see the resolution/refresh rate.
Are you able to set the GUI refresh rate to the same as the video? I assumed I was getting glitches because it was converting from 50Hz to 24Hz. My TV is an EX700 which should handle the same signals as yours.
-Outputting the Vero to 1080p with refresh rate set to start/stop does give the best performance results as the judder is less. Unless my eyes are deceiving me though the 1080p content isn’t getting as much upscale as when it’s set to 4k but I can live with that.
-However, the refresh rate auto change does sometimes result in a blackout on my screen - but I tried creating a debug log - but it doesn’t occur at set times. It seems a bit random. One thing I noticed is that the blackouts normally occur just after I have fast forwarded on the Vero. If I let the content play from start to finish it is normally fine. I will keep trying to create a debug log but it is difficult to reproduce the error.
-The “tearing” I mentioned seemed to be created by a setting on my panasonic tv called “intelligent frame creation”. When set to high it is masisvely smooth and I get the “soap opera effect” but also produced motion blur, so I guess it’s a judgement for me to make here.
One question I have is that there are two 1080p output settings - one with 60 fps and one with a lower one - so which do I choose?
