No worries, have a look when you get a chance.
It still not good right now. After watching some stuff it seems the TV won’t accept the signal at random (420,10bit @ 4k60hz), and running hdr material can just end up in garbled lines all over the screen. I don’t know what the problem is at this point tbh. The TV won’t accept 4:4:4 unless in PC mode (which limits all movie options) and it won’t accept 4:4:4 in HDR at all. This seems to be a known issue and affects all LG (oled?) tvs. If I force 4:2:0 it kinda works, but HDR is still hit/miss and sometimes it just cuts to black. This also forces me to run Kodi at 4k60 and can’t enable “adjust refresh rate”.
I’m gonna try reinstall the regular build and see how well that one works. What are the main differences with this experimental build?
Would be nice to have someone else with a LG tv confirm if possible
Edit: I just now realized that the TV can actually play most files from the NAS via DLNA, and I can successfully play all these HDR10 4k files without issues. I also noticed that DTS-MA 7.1 now gets correctly passed through (as DTS) (via kodi it would show as 5.1 but not DTS). With the freshly installed OSMC all files worked normally, but it’s 8bit I believe (there’s flickering/banding in skies like that video I uploaded) but there’s no crashing/losing signal at least.
Perhaps I’ll use the Vero as a 1080p/4k (non-hdr) player and use the TV for HDR content. This will also let me use DTS-HD (my amp supports it but it’s only hdmi 2.0 so can’t send 10bit/hdr to the TV).
Are there any more options for the amhdmitx device that I can fiddle with? With the current release I tried forcing RBG but that didn’t make anything better.
Edit2: Running the experimental build via my amp (Yamaha RX-V475) I can now play 10bit HDR content! I have to keep the attr as 444,8bit though, since my amp doesn’t do 10bit/hdr. With the regular june version all hdr content would just get gray/washed up, but now they play like normal movies. So I guess for now the Vero will do all my 1080p/4k and the built in TV player will play 4k HDR material.
Tested the fix today, too… I had issues playing Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk in the 2160p60 HDR version. I couldn’t find a 1080p60 version in SDR (I only own a 1080p TV), so I had to stick to this one.
The dithering (false coloring) is gone now!
But I noticed that VQ is constantly running low to 0% about once every minute resulting in massive skips. But this isn’t a dithering/HDR issue, I guess. @sam_nazarko, how and where should this be adressed? Is this issue already known to you?
Could be similar to some buffering issues @f0o is also experiencing with high bitrate content. It’s being looked in to, but likely won’t be related to the changes made available in this thread. I’m glad that colours look better now.
I’m pretty new to the Vero 4k, but I have tried one 10bit 4k movie which is looking much better with this build. Can’t really say anything about the banding issue. I do however experience occasional blackouts. Full debug log here: https://paste.osmc.tv/qapopigapi
