RE: 20150401 (1.0.23) - Open Hour Chameleon Android Firmware
I'm very disappointed that the HDMI purple/green flipping problems have still not been resolved. There was a perfectly workable solution in 1 0 11 and it would have been great if this option was still available to us who suffer from this issue. It would have been acceptable to make this a switchable option with the default being the current method of displaying (for those people that either don't have the issue or can't tolerate the darker color palette of the solution). That would have made the box usable for everyone while a real fix for the issue could have been found in the mean time.

As it is now the box is just gathering dust on my side table and my Boxee Box is still working decent enough for my current media playing needs.

Yes and even better where, if we had some kind of preferences like:
- default language
- subtitle language
- subtitel yes/no/forced
...and so on.

Hit the nail on the head with that one son!

We'll conclude that it works excellent but not for those with special needs. Big Grin

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

Have you done this?

If not do so as it was via this that firmware 1.0.11 resulted. One of the owners provided logs and it was fixed.

For those with green/purple problem please try this. We need to edit this file (/sys/class/display/display0.HDMI/color):

echo mode=value > /sys/class/display/display0.HDMI/color

value
0 - auto
1 - RGB[0-255]
2 - RGB[16-235]
3 - YCbCr444
4 - YCbCr422
5 - YCbCr420

** This method is only for testing, the value will set to default when the box reboot. If it is working, we will add in advance settings for user to set this.

Example command below, please change the IPAddress and mode value accordingly:

> adb connect 192.168.0.33
> adb remount
> adb shell "cat /sys/class/display/display0.HDMI/color"

Supported Color Mode: 30
Current Color Mode: 0
Supported Color Depth: 22
Current Color Mode: 0

> adb shell "echo mode=3 > /sys/class/display/display0.HDMI/color"
> adb shell "cat /sys/class/display/display0.HDMI/color"

Supported Color Mode: 30
Current Color Mode: 3
Supported Color Depth: 22
Current Color Mode: 0

[3D Bluray ISO support]
can you please like to tell how do you play 3d bd iso with audio? plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz guide in a simple way

- starting internal player
- select NFS
- wait for 100% search
- choose the right NAS
- choose the folder with the ISOs
- choose the 3D ISO
- player begins to play and if 3d, the TV switches to 3D and plays with sound

if you hear no sound maybe your TV or your AVR can't decode the audio format, that the ISO contains

f.e. some Samsung TV can decode DD5.1 but not DTS. If your files contain sound in DD, you will hear the sound, if your files contain DTS you will hear nothing.

hello everyone,

I had a green screen problem with my TV. With FW .11 this issues is fix. But with FW .13 is go back, so i stayed in .11.

I have not yet tested the .23 FW, I could not do it before two weeks. I will return in this forum to tell you if I still have the problem, and if so, if the mode change fix it.

bye

TV : Philips 42PFL8404H 1080p (build in 2009) --- HDMI Cable : OHC inbox ---- Connection : HTPC to TV directly -- Nas Synology by NFS -- OPENHOUR : FW 1.0.11

I'll have a look at these instructions and I'll try to make the changes you propose as a test. But it would have been easier to integrate this in the user interface for the 1_0_23 beta firmware (or the 1_0_25 beta firmware) as I'm sure that the less technically inclined people with this problem won't feel able to follow these instructions. Might have to wait for the weekend though before I can test this.

Internal player is capable to play 3d iso, brt still there are problem with reading 3d dinamic subtitles in the disk. It read it as 2D and that makes it imposible to watch it. I really wish that problem to be solved with next firms.

the patch that fixed your problem in that upgrade made a lot of problems for the majority of users.

Not his fault.
Wouldn t it be easier to make a Thread where we state what Bugs remain and what we know about them?(where all "this xy isn t working etc is placed.)
To say a Place for Openadmin and Kodi to have an overview and get all the Information they need. (Someone would have to edit the top posts and delete the posts that are not relevant anymore)
At the moment we have about 5 different Threads with different Issues. Sometimes linked sometimes not.
Just a Suggestion.

Updated my Firmware also, skipping got slower and slower, runs like at the begining again. (from .13 to .23)

You smile - and the world changes.

Yes, in my previous post:
"** This method is only for testing, the value will set to default when the box reboot. If it is working, we will add in advance settings for user to set this."

We are unable to reproduce this with all our TV in office so far, that's why we need someone to help us to at least know that this method is working or else what we added to the advanced settings will still be useless for the green/purple problem. Thanks.
