I do not agreed with rating of the VidOn box compare to Ras Pi 2...if this rating only base 3D and HD Audio performance.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-03-23

You think RPi2 should be lower right? Reason I have it higher is RPi2 does perfect 23.976 and MVC 3D. Granted, no ISO yet, but it's being worked on by devs. It also does HD audio for TrueHD, just decoded as 8-channel PCM. It only can't do DTS-MA. With VidOn, PQ isn't as good as Pi's, it isn't as snappy, and there are HDMI handshaking bugs. That last bit may have been resolved by the latest updates (I haven't gotten a chance to test yet).

Been out of the loop for awhile - does this mean the Pi2 can play 3d MVC MKV's ?


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - nickr - 2015-03-23

Yes, in a MKV container. Not (yet) in an ISO.

Nice - have been looking for something to play these for awhile now.

Is this while running Openelec ?

And is this only on the Pi 2 ?


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - nickr - 2015-03-23

Yes, there is a thread here for Milhouse's Isengard (ie unreleased version 15) test builds. You need one of those.

Start with this post:

And read onwards. (Also read the warnings in post 1 of that thread)


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-03-24

Hey there nickr, as this applies to Kodi and triggering full 3D playback in general, is there something in settings that has to be enabled, and do files have to be named as directed here (found via Google search)? ISO I think doesn't need special naming, but trying to find proper way to name frame-packed MVC MKV, SBS and T/B movies.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - nickr - 2015-03-24

Include 3D.SBS in the file name. Counter-intuitive but it works.

And @dchabby, works on pi1 too. But why would you buy one now?

We now have a DTS-HD solution for Pi:

Wow. So the pi2 is just missing better 1080i de interlacing for LiveTV and Netflix.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - nickr - 2015-03-24

popcornmix your development speed makes my head spin.

excellent.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + 3D ISO + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-03-24

Amazing! Great work! Must make up some excuse from work tomorrow to test MVC MKV and HD audio decoding Wink.

Updated post #1 again. RPi2 now deserves an overall grade 'A'. Unless, a chorus of users disagree?

1080i de-interlace, yes. Netflix, how, via OpenELEC? Dunno.

Can you take over Chromebox and do some magic with it?

The guys working on Chromebox doesn't care about 3DBlush

That doesn't even make sense. What do you mean?
