Many thanks!

I have to say I use to get a lot of very slight stuttering with the DX11 version when I was browsing my library or moving the selector around the interface. Granted this was on W7. I just installed the latest version of DX11 builds and I am now on W10, man is Kodi buttery smooth now. I can actually live with the DX11 as a daily install. Great work devs!!!

FYI, the latest DX11 code makes the DSPlayer builds run perfectly now for my setup.

Hi,

Using the Oct 22 nightly, have noticed a very minor thing:

Going into guide or info when playing a video, the screen top slightly dims and the layover info is displayed as expected.
However, pressing "guide" or "info" again to remove the info results in the screen blacking out for half a second, as the overlay is removed from the video. The video continues to play without issue.


I'm posting here first, although this could also be due to the "screen saver dimming fix" that happened a bit ago.

I will create a ticket and add debug logs when the kids are asleep (and update this post with the number).


General info:
Oct 22 Nightly build
"Info" and "guide" triggered via JSON RPC
WIndows 10, 64 bit
Nvidia GT610 with latest drivers
PC Connected via HDMI to AV Receiver, which is connected via HDMI to TV.

Interesting work!

I stumbled upon this thread and got curious because using the DirectX 11 API opens up the capability to use high bit depths with the right hardware. And while a lot of software (in particular the various decoders and filters) support this all HTPC software currently converts this back down to 8 bits per pixel which has the potential to introduce color banding especially when color space and color range conversions are thrown into the mix as well by either the software, the display driver or the display device's internal processing.

I downloaded the latest Kodi source where your work has been merged in to and with some minor alterations in the use of the DXGI_FORMAT constants in RenderSystemDX and D3DResource I was able to make it use the 10-bit-per-pixel integer and 16-bit-per-pixel float formats without apparent issue due to all the preparation that you have already done.

Would you be interested in investigating this further with me?

I have access to hardware that should support it all to do some debugging on. Additionally I believe that the more recent consumer geforce drivers also show a drop-down that allows a selection of 8bpp or 12bpp when connected to a compatible TV through HDMI.
