RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - movie78 - 2016-01-11

New OpenELEC Krypton build #0110

Build Highlights:

Fix for MVC green screen

Tested a few files that i was having Green Microblocks issue and all seams to working without any issue,so far the Raspberry Pi2 is becoming my favorite 3D media player.

Notice a few bugs while i was testing...

1- All DTS HD MA movies plays fine without a issue.
2-TRUEHD 5.1/7.1 and ATMOS movies are having some playback difficulties,after 60 seconds or 2 minutes into the movie the sound will stop and then image will freeze play freeze play..

Has anyone done any picture quality comparisons between Mede8er, Popcorn Hour, R Pi and Q5?

Mostly subjective you know, but to me Q5 > Pi2 > M8R. Can say where PCH VTEN falls next week.

As I can see in the very first post, there are only two good media player choices. Confused
Raspberry doesn't fit for me because of no hd audio support (I'd like to have atmos pass through)
Himedia Q5 doesn't support CEC Confused

Is there any other good choice which plays everything Huh

Hard to say...

The ZiDoo is an OK device and it does passthrough ATMOS

If you don't need 3D then get the ChromeBox...

3D is nice to have but actually I prefer to watch movies in 2D, maybe because of my TV (Philips 58PFL9955H)
Maybe I should have a look at Zidoo, whats about the lip sync issue?
Or just make a compromise with resigning 3D and go for a ChromeBox.

As movie78 said, go Chromebox.

As hdmkv said, that repeated what movie78 said, go Chromebox Wink


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2016-01-12

LOL. But @Big.bud99, seriously, Zidoo X6 isn't worth the hassle... not even an 'ok' box IMHO; late alpha at best w/frustrations. A secondary consideration is nVidia Shield.

@hdmkv, did you already receive the tronsmart s95? Can you confirm 3d output is only half-resolution? What's your personal opinion about tronsmart s95 vega? I read at first post you bought it to test.

Thanks a lot.


RE: Media Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - wrxtasy - 2016-01-12

Seriously read the main section of the forums, rubbish from Tronsmart and VidOn should not have to infect more than one thread.

hdmkv should not have to continuously repeat himself when it is already reviewed, written and confirmed !

Well again, this thread isn't for people looking for a 2D only box.

HI, I have a H8, I did not test kodi on it loaded it up and updated kodi via google store, for some reason I cannot get sound when playing videos, I've tried resetting the box deleting kodi , reinstalling from the kodi site. tried changing every setting I can find in kodi with no luck am I missing something simple? the menu sounds work and local radio fine.
