H264 Hi10 isn't used for commercial content, and is only really used for re-encodes distributed (in some cases probably illegally in some territories) by fans, and isn't supported in consumer hardware as a result.

Ah oki thanks for the clarification, i noticed this mainly with anime.

Kodi would need to support it also I would imagine, so it will prob be a while.

HDR on Kodi works on Shield so once drivers and Linux get support Kodi should be not too hard to enable it.

Is it a matter of getting a workaround in Linux to have HD audio working with DP chip hdmi 2.0 versions? Is it something Intel needs to resolve? I'm interested only in Linux (Ubuntu or LE), Windows is not an option.

You can try a technical version of Kodi 17 made by Fritsch, this version does support 10 bit HEVC video.
I have used this version now for sometime with not any issues on my Intel NUC6CYH
Hopefully it will come soon in the Kodi Master.
You can find it here http://fritsch.fruehberger.net/openelec/

Thx for the link unfortunately those are linux only versions, which i cant use atm. Thats because shokoanime still has no linux/mono compatible server out yet (its WIP). I'm also confused if this solves my problem, since its h264/10bit that is not working in hardware, since as pointed out intel did not bother to implement this custom profile. So HEVC/10bit is also not working in Kodi 17 atm? This is a official profile and even on the box of the mainboard they advertise the hardware support of the platform for this profile.

To use hardware support for a format, the hardware needs to support it - in hardware AND the software needs to support playback using hardware support.
In the case of current mainline (as of this post) Kodi does not currently support playback of hevc using hardware decoding.

@ Fritsch I have been using your version of LE with HEVC 10 support and love it thank you very much. Will you be uploading an update to 8.0.1?
