RE: 20160121 (1.0.40) - Beta Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
Hello Willem55,

I have check and rechecked my Kodi settings and can't figure out any wrong setting.

What is really strange, is that even for movies with multiple audio streams (not channels), Kodi shows that there is only 1 Stream and downmixes it to stereo.

I am not sure if I remember correctly, but I think that prior to the update, Kodi would recognise my Denon AVR as an "Audio output device"... now it only shows "android, audiotrack" in the "Audio output" pane of the "System - Settings" page.

Could that be the issue?

Start a thread with asking help for Kodi audio settings.

Some focus on problems and faults others on solutions and success... no question who is the happy one.

can't quite understand what you mean, but I just played a 3D MKV file (Imax Space Station) in side by side and with DTS-HDMA and it played ok through KODI. no subtitles though.

I hadn't done the right settings. It's working just fine now.

The playback of this version is working

Finally

After almost 1 year I can use the device for something

On Android advanced audio settings I defined the output on spdif

In kodi the setting that enables hardware ac3 and DTS. That's all.

Now after 2 weeks of testing, I had several files where the sound and/or picture was stuttering that are all perfectly playing.

Thanks

If you are talking about in Kodi then yes I tried but could not get it to work with NPVR. All the channels came up but when you went to play it just came up with a black screen.
It use to work in the older versions but picture quality was bad
Hope you have better luck.

Could this Beta the end of OHC ?

I have identified the following issues, that I was hoping Open Hour team would be working with Rockchip to address:

- Native Player is downscaling certain 4K files (mostly 50 and 60fps) to 1080p (while Kodi plays them fine).
- Kodi plays back audio out of synch on certain 4K files (I found this to be also happening more with 50 and 60fps files)
- External subtitles (i.e. SRT) still not working on native player.
- HEVC 10bit files are playing as 8bit on HDMI interface (this one seems to be a hardware limitation)

I would be so happy with those issues addressed, not even bothering about Lolipop or Kodi 16.

It would be good if this beta ended.

How can you play 4K/50 or 60 fps files over the HDMI1.4 of the Chameleon? These files are out of the specs of the Chameleon and need HDMI 2.0 hardware.

The HDMI interface on OHC is actually v 2.0, it just does not have HDCP 2.2 support.

Where did you see this info? Where is the 4K/60 fps setting in the setup?

The setting will appear only if your TV has this capability - see this video:

Thanks, I never tested connected directly to my 4K TV, because I had the info that it is 1.4. And my AVR has 1.4 input only, so I have never seen the 50/60 Hz options. But as I know, only 4K/30 fps playback is guaranteed, not 60 fps.
