OK, in combination with SPMC 1.3.4
- DTS and DD5.1 seems to work
- SPMC switches the Chameleon to 720p
- every movie works with 720p/60, on other Kodi on the same OS f.e. the movie works fine native with 1080p/24
- UHD content was also scaled down to 720p
- refresh rate switching doesn't work

Please fix that!

Internal Player
- seems to play 3D
- doesn't play sound

SPMC plays at 1080p for me upon installing just the SPMC update. Havent tried the firmware yet so if it does cause problems its not SPMC for me it's the firmware/SPMC.

OHC > HDMI > TV (Panasonic 42G20)
Downmix stereo using standard Kodi(MC) 15.2 no hware/acc OK
Downmix stereo 1.0.40/RK Kodi(RKlib) 15.2 infrequent audio gaps hware/acc OK

No DTS downmix available for inbuilt eMC player

Gecko> HDMI > TV (Panasonic 42G20)
Downmix stereo using Gecko Kodi 15.0 OK
Downmix using inbuilt MediaCentre OK

Its also with the 13.4 Beta. The 13.3 from SPMC plays fine and scales to 1080p if requested

resolution in android is set to auto, 1080p or do you get a 4K choice?

OK, we are getting there, DD & DTS 5.1 is working fine. Auto screen resolution is selecting 720P, when set to 1080P I still get 720P, Stuttering is gone, will have to watch a full movie to determine if the video freezing is also fixed, if that is the case then I am happy and can wait for the other fixes to come along. The white noise on HDMI Passthrough is now gone in SPMC. I will report back on freezing tonight.

*EDIT* Well, I watched 2 movies, onw MKV and one MP4, and had not one freeze the entire 4 hours, I am so glad this is fixed!

My Results so far:
- SMB Stuttering is gone
- German keyboard layout in File Explorer is fixed
- HDMI-Bitstream Audio is working with SPMC 1.3.4
- Had to deactivate the downmix Audio for some Movies due to freaky sound artefacts

Thank you

I've downloaded the update twice and cannot get the box to update. Any setting that would prevent it from starting?

Edit: Never mind, I wasn't waiting long enough.....

OK, if i set Chameleon to 1080p/60 it plays movies with 1080p/24, but UHD content also scaled down to 1080p. If i set to 2160p/60 all content is scaled down to 720p
