X2000 has MStar chip, and X1000 has Telechips. Latter is only dual core. Meh and meh. Just get a HiMedia Q5 4K; it's a winner. Or, wait for ISO support on RPi2 and get that. Chance of getting 3D on nVidia Shield I think is very slim. HD audio and MPEG2/VC-1 H/W we'll probably get, but 3D, nah, wouldn't expect it.

M3 is as good too. . If you dont need it for gaming

Gaming on ARM is not very important to me,because i have the XBOX One ...


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - Skank - 2015-06-03

Then get the m3 instead of q5 Wink

Amlogic also began to support 23.976 in the recently released SDK, but still has some little issues when pass HD audio.

True support or like "Sync Playback to display" with resampled Audio. Android o Linux?

I've been testing this AMlogic 23.976fps(24p) SDK with a S805 running Kodi Isegard on Ubuntu, both with H264 and H265 clips and movies and results are very encouraging.
Avatar is a good movie to test the H264 24p sync out with, and 30 minutes of video resulted in not a single frame drop if my GUI refresh rate in Kodi was set to 24Hz. H265 clips results - a very minor frame drop that is not at all frequent. But to be fair this is a very new and immature codec, it could also be the encoding settings used.

Not sure if its true 24p support or not, as I'm still testing.

It is true 23.976 support (actually, 23.975). It may not get any better than this on Android due to Java layers (that is what I was told).

if i am not wrong it's the only android box support 23,976.

and.... the graet missing is Openelec , there is not official support for OC1 yet.

Looun, you get that results with himedia wrapper ? With Kodi I think that on Q5 4K3D we dont have auto frame rate and I dont know if we can output at 23,976 or 24 hz ?

no, we can't. Himedia q5must be playback with himediavideoplayer, if you want playback with dvdplayer buy other box or HTPC.

Where do you see 23.976? Your Epson projector is only showing 23.97 that doesn't mean that it is 23.976. I do not have the himedia Q5 so, I cannot tell you what its actual output is. The refresh rate numbers that I provide are from Quantum Data 780 or Lumagen Radiance processor. Amlogic S8xx has had 23.976(5) support for almost a year now. They got the AV sync and AVR compatibility problems sorted out only a few months ago.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - Wolly - 2015-06-05

Currently, Amlogic has some problem on the compatibility between 23.976 and HD audio Passthrough. You can only choose one, 23.976 or HD audio passthrough.
This is a complicated problem that can't be solved with software. When they released their 64-bit chipset, this will be solved.

There is a economic solution for test HDMI Hz out? maybe adb comand or tool?

bad news.... Sad


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-06-05

It seems the only promising solution, other than HiMedia Q5/Q10/M3, for Kodi + 3D ISO + HD audio + proper 23.976 is Raspberry Pi 2 when ISO support is added. Granted no Dolby Atmos nor DTS:X. All the others I have in the chart in post #1 have critical items missing or functional issues.

And, not to turn this into a HiMedia thread, but they have a H7 III just out in China that also looks promising. looun alerted us about it a while back. H7 III has Rockchip vs. HiSilicon, Android 5.1, and HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP 2.2). I'm not seeing mention of 3D, HD audio, etc. specifically, but I wouldn't think HiMedia will exclude what has made their boxes appealing to date...
