RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - movie78 - 2015-12-03

Tronsmart Vega S95$99

Support DTS-HD, Dolby True HD, 7.1 Passthrough via HDMI
Support 3D MKV,3D BDMV and 3D ISO Playback, can play 3D Blueray folders directly, also support BD-J Menu Navigation via Vidon XBMC

MINIX NEO U1$129

7.1 and 5.1 surround sound pass through over HDMI
DD+/DTS (pass-through)
Dolby TrueHD (pass-through)


Its look the Tronsmart Vega S95 is better option


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-12-03

I'm tempted to buy the Tronsmart S95 from GeekBuying to try out, the middle-priced 'Meta' version w/2GB RAM. With their $10 coupon, should be $70. On the other hand, expecting a Venz V8 sample within next 2 weeks, so may wait.


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - movie78 - 2015-12-03

I am thinking about buying Tronsmart Vega S95, but i getting a little disappointed with ViDon update release.


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-12-03

Oh right, forgot it's VidOn they're relying on to offer 3D; never mind, will pass.


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - movie78 - 2015-12-03

Yes!

Both the Tronsmart Vega S95 and MINIX NEO U1 hardware will rely on VidOn for 3D MVC and DTS HD MA /TRUEHD support.


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-12-03

Where are you seeing Minix U1 using VidOn? Thanks.


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - wrxtasy - 2015-12-03

Smart move, you would likely cop all sorts off flak from concerned Kodi devs, members and moderators if anything further from VidOn was put on the front page of a sticky Kodi thread further promoting the tarnished company.


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-12-03

No, won't buy anything VidOn, or even if I did, I wouldn't post about it. Anyway, Kodi foundation was supposed to discuss VidOn issue with Minix, especially as Minix is a sponsor. VidOn advertises "VidOn XBMC" support & "partnership" with AMLogic & Minix here.

VidOn has a Kodi 14 version out and claim to be working on a 15 version. Love how Wolly writes in that thread:
Quote:VidOn XBMC has its own player-core and has no relationship with any of the official Kodi releases.
They seem to think their XBMC is theirs, so take a GPL version, customize it, and call it your own. Hmm, what if we'd all done that with our research papers in college?!


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - movie78 - 2015-12-04

Is VidOn Kodi going to become the default kodi for these manufacturers?

I thought it was getting quiet on the zidoo x6 forum now we know why


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-12-04

Most of these Chinese manufacturers jump on the next big things... chip, additional cores, Android 5, faster wi-fi, whatever, so their attention to critical issues in previous boxes (that are still relatively new) is divided, and it's like they're starting from scratch with regards to decent Kodi support, HD audio, 3D, proper framerates, etc.

Not completely,still a few bugs.

It looks like all these manufactures are jumping on the Amlogic S905

Not quite from scratch when it comes to the AMLogic Linux Kernel as the S905 shares a lot of commonality with the previous generation of S8XX SoC's

Its all very well all these AMLogic box manufacturers quoting fancy Tech specs when really all they are doing in pumping out common Hardware, from a common AMLogic / Android SDK (even the launcher is the same), in slightly different external cases. Profit on these cheap devices will be very thin, which makes this little snippet of info that I read lately (if it is to be believed) interesting:
Quote: I’ve received some recent price info for AMLogic processors (in quantities):
Amlogic S805 – $3
Amlogic S905 – $4.5
Amlogic S812 – $9
Amlogic S812(-H) with DTS and Dolby licenses – $12
The S905 with the correct licences would be around the $10 mark I would think. I suspect a lot of S9XX box manufacturers are not even going to bother paying any extra over the base price. None of S9XX sellers seem to want to go the extra mile and provide Widevine Level 1 support either for 1080p DRM streaming Android Apps.
