I do not quite understand why you are constantly installing the 16 Alpha releases - if you want a stable viewing experience. The 15 Isengard runs perfectly and had been also on your machine.
Yes you are interested in 3D ISO playback, but just wait till the release is ready.
For now just use 3D mvc mkv, which you already had converted and leave the PI2 alone - just enjoy watching movies.

Never change a running system! An Alpha is an Alpha and things tend to go wrong.

The problem is, if you write this, people will think -oh no, it does not work. But it does, the Pi2 running Isengard is very reliable, no issues here.

That would be too easy, LOL Big Grin. Besides, by hopefully doing all this testing, I'm helping devs as well as the community. Anyway, excited that I've figured out the issue after all this time... my Onkyo NR636. I'm going to play with a couple of HDMI EDID settings in my Pi's config.txt file, like forcing 'RGB limited' and seeing if my Onkyo likes it better. If not, planning to get do HDMI splitter/switcher set to send all my media player signals directly to my projector, and separately to my AVR for audio decoding only (no video passing).

Another user in the Pi forum section, whose suggestion helped pinpoint my issue, said his Anthem AVR caused him HDMI issues as well, so he relegated it to audio duties only as well.

Ok, I do understand that. Wink

BTW, I even have a DVDO Air wireless adapter sending the signal to my Epson projector (and the DVDO is a hdmi handshake nightmare) and even that works. Infact so much better than with the A-400 I used before, which drove me nuts. Angel

Yep, HDMI and handshaking can get messy... just tried via my old Pioneer VSX-822 and no problems. Can't believe the newer, pricier, supposedly better Onkyo TX-NR636 fares worse in this case.

Update on HiMedia H8 custom Kodi and GPL... they will share source code. Trying to put them in direct contact with a Kodi team member now.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - wrxtasy - 2015-10-19

Good news if HiMedia follow through with that.
It seems "Gentle Persuasion" with the threat of public shaming may have an affect !

When a companies bottom line is effected due to lost sales, managers tend to wake up to themselves.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-10-19

Don't know... e-mail from them sounded like this was new territory for them. I had simply e-mailed late last week asking, "are you aware you need to share source code per GPL rules?".

Getting a H8 review unit via one of their resellers, so wanted to make sure they're kosher before I put any effort in Smile.

How on earth did you convince them to get one


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-10-19

I review boxes for various manufacturers. Like wrxtasy reviewing WeTek Core here recently (and/or secondarily, sites like AVSForum, AVForums, Amazon, etc.), it gives them good publicity. Big caveat though... provided it's a good product and worth recommending Smile.

Re: GPL for H8's custom Kodi, I PM'd popcornmix (about 6 hours ago) about getting Kodi team directly connected with HiMedia. He may be out today, so if another Kodi member can or wants to pick this up, please PM me, I'll pass you the e-mail for my HiMedia contact (or vice versa).

Got PM from popcornmix (thanks); passing message to HiMedia.

The custom kodi for RK is ZIDOO and Rockchip Joint development.
In RK's SDK document,The official KODI project is:https://github.com/zidootech/zidoo-kodi-15.1/tree/zidoo-15.1
so,the H8's custom kodi is same of zidoo x6
We'll update the source code these day.support 3D MVC framepacking.
