RE: 20151023 (1.0.33) - Beta Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
My impression... everything works better now Smile, except:


1. There are audio dropouts with Dolby Atmos soundtracks (problem already noted).
2. I can't get 3D .ISO files to show in 3D.
3. No bitstream support for PCM 5.1 soundtracks - all are converted to simple stereo.
4. Kodi app response is choppy even when there are no background processes working - this does not affect movie playback.
5. I can't get screen auto resolution to change to 23976Hz, despite following the setup instructions.

Yes, I thought I did. But when I reviewed my Kodi setting (especially in Video Playback), I had not set to the sync refresh rate in playback. When I did this my display now synced to 24HZ - thanks for your help.

TrueHD and DTS HD audio bitstream works on Kodi now, but still doesn't work on native player.

it's normal, this custom kodi uses the new rockchip driver when the native player doesn't. why would you bother with the native player ?

RE: 20151023 (1.0.33) - Beta Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
here is a funny thing!!!!
TrueHD and DTS HD audio bitstream works on Kodi great if u disable the 2 rockchip accelerators.
as long as u don't mess with DTS or AC3, TrueHD and DTS HD audio works fine on Kodi.
no audio loss or 23976 stuttering or lipsync problem.
if u play DTS or AC3 all system gets crazy and the problems begin. if u reboot Chameleon
and open kodi again TrueHD and DTS HD audio works again.
weird right?

TrueHD and DTS-HD in the native player worked and works fine, no problem here.

Yesterday I watched a 23,976 movie with DTS. I had sometimes the effect that sound was not in sync with the picture (is it what you mean with "lipsync problem" ?).

When I say sometimes it means 4-5 times during a few seconds on ~90minutes. It means it was overall watchable.

The file was 8Gb.

Other than that, where are you downloading true hd and dts hd movies from ? usually the best I can get is dts and ac3...I mean you really need to dig to find something else...

...not unless you rip your own blu-rays losslessly to MKV files using programs like MakeMKV or DVDFab9Big Grin .

I have the same issue with the audio dropping out several times during a movie and have to stop and restart.

The native player is the only player to output UHD(4K), that's why! Other players like KODI or VLC all max out at full-HD.
