I use a Popcorn Hour V-Ten to play media but am mindful that new tech means I’ll have to update my equipment in a while and I’ve been trying out media players to try and find a brand to upgrade to when it become necessary as Popcorns are no longer manufactured. Mostly I’m trying to find one that has a good U.I I can bear (most don’t).
And it appears nearly everything new is going to be some kind of Android/Linux based, likely Kodi, player (which I don’t like for a variety of reasons).
I got a Vero delivered today and have been testing it - and it looks a recognizable though modified Kodi on
Android Linux based device with one notable feature I’d like to report - which is why I named this topic after my TV (65 inch OLED) - the Vero does something no other player I’ve tested does; it manages to tell my TV if the source it’s playing is HDR so that the TV automatically switches to HDR10 mode - the message doesn’t seem to get through from any other player.
Which is excellent (because it takes a tonne of button presses to turn HDR on and off otherwise - a real pain).
