Over the past few weeks there have been a few of you trying HDR and 10-bit content and reporting issues with colours or slight banding. Here are some experimental test builds that will hopefully improve this situation.
Please note that this is early days; and these builds are quite experimental. I would recommend that you take a backup before installing these builds.
In this build:
Colourspace should now be passed for content
Banding when playing with 8-bit output should now be fixed
AWESOME! This is working great for me. I can confirm that my receiver & TV are both receiving a 10bit signal from the Vero4k with no ill effects. I watched plenty of 10bit content and it looks considerably better now, and there isn’t any negative effect on 8bit content, although it does always seem to output a 10bit BT.2020 signal regardless of the bit-depth of the content (don’t see any problem here, just reporting everything I’ve noticed. It was always 8bit before regardless of whether it was 10bit content).
There may be breakage, but that goes with the territory. I’d like to focus on the video improvements for now in this thread, but if you send me a PM we can debug this further. The latest SoC changes may have an impact on IR support.
I didn’t really see any issues with HDR but decided to try this anyway and it messed something up.
I had a pretty fresh install and updated with this. Now on boot it won’t load the NFS shares setup in fstab (seems to try to mount them before wlan is finished), and OSMC crashes one time (Sad face but restarts again) and now when I try to watch one HDR10 clip that was previously okay it clips to black and resets the display a few times, and when there’s image there are red pixels scattered. Very strange.

I don’t remember it saying those “hmm” things the first time but perhaps something’s messed up then, and there doesn’t seem to be an attr that I can list
