I had (and still have) a Pi3 with Libreelec and AeonNox (Silvio) on a FullHD SonyTV and hoped that with a Vero4k everything would be a bit faster and smoother.
I made all the settings on the Vero4k exactly as on the Pi3, but then the disappointment: on the Pi3, the horizontal scrolling through the main menu (Movies <-> Music <-> Settings, etc) is almost always smooth, with the Vero4k it stutters constantly. Only slightly, but everytime. That drives me crazy… When I watch a movie and fade in the information with the “i” button or with “OK”, there is always(!) a small stutter in the movie, this is not the case with the Pi3.
I tested AEON Nox: Silvio and AEON Nox, the same for both.
Display refresh rate is set to 60.00. Tried others but it didn’t helped.
What can I do? If it stays that way, I have to send the device back, stuttering menues would make me mad…
Would appreciate your help,
Thanks and sorry for bad english
Can you please upload some logs via My OSMC so we can see how the device is configured?
There are a number of users using the Aeon Nox skin on the Vero, so we should be able to solve the problem for you.
The menu of OSMC Skin is completly different, but yeah, it runs smooth. Switching back to Silvo or Aeon Nox 5: Redux and the menu is jerky. I made no changes to the menu, just installed OSMC and then the skin. Aeon Tajo seems to run fluid too (but has a different menu style), Aeon Madnox is jerky
It is not everywhere, it is especially if i navigate horizontal left and right between the main menu symbols (Movies<->Music<->System<->…) I have always a slight stuttering which i dont have on raspi3 or FireTV Stick.
Tried out different HDMI cabels, ports, menu frequencies, resolution and other settings over hours now, but nothing helped
I think the sluggishness comes from the audio delay in gui on the Vero 4k. I had that too until I changed one setting, I think „keeping audio device alive„ or something… after I changed that, audio in GUI was instant and everything felt snappy again.
You won‘t notice the difference on the videos he posted above if you don‘t watch it with sound, The impression that menus are stuttering and behave sluggish comes from the oh so slight audio delay. As mentioned, that is fixed by changing the setting above…
Its a visual stuttering, not sound. Changing the setting of “Keeping the audio device alive” to “on” didn’t help.
The stuttering is small but permanently. Also when watching a movie and press “i” on the remote there is a small stuttering in the movie before the information-menu comes. On Pi3 i have no stuttering here.
OK – final question. Can you reproduce this on a blank installation, ie without a video library? If so, then I can download the skin on to a system and see if I can reproduce the issue. It might be easier to set it in person.
Yes, the stuttering is with or without a video library. I only installed osmc, then immediately the skin. Please test also, if you have the stuttering while watching a movie and pressing “i” on the remote.
