Hdmkv. Have you checked zidoo x6 pro after they released new firmware?


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-11-02

Yes, will post in their closed beta forum in a bit, but basically as someone there posted, "1 step forward 2 steps backwards". I've started to test HiMedia H8 and finding similar issues with it as well. Maybe not surprising as same chip, and HiMedia is now leveraging Zidoo's Kodi source code. HiMedia's firmware is a step behind Zidoo's.

Ok. Thanks for info. What about wetek core? Did you tested this new model? I'm most interested how works 3d iso. I'm not so hd sound fanatic, most picture quality.

wetek core 4k NOT support Full 3D and not support HD audio.

Ok. Thanks. Nvidia Shield does it or not? If not then I think it will be a choice between himedia and zidoo.

Cob2, don't forget Raspberry Pi2, which is a solid choice as well, alongside HiMedia Q5.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - Cob2 - 2015-11-02

I'm thinking about it too. What would be your choice? Let's focus only at image quality, 3d iso support. What have better performance. Which supports kodi best? Sorry for so many questions but I would like make best choice.

If Bit-stream HD Audio is not important to you,the Raspberry Pi2 is the best option.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-11-02

There's no best, but here's what I'd consider between the two as far as PQ and 3D support...

RPi2
- Seamless playback of 3D via Kodi internal dvdplayer/videoplayer
- Excellent PQ, unmolested, output as is from videos
- Perfect framerates, especially the most important 23.976 (majority of movies & TV shows)
- 3D support for both ISO's and MVC MKV's
- Some artifacts exist (not all 3D ISO's): green pixellation and random stutters (latter seems like at points where bitrates peak in BD rips)
- The best support you could ask for

Update: The Pi2 green pixellation issue is being worked on.

HiMedia Q5
- Video playback (including 3D) via external player solution (not seamless w/Kodi, but not bad either)
- No wired SMB/NFS playback stutters
- Excellent PQ, leveraging Imprex Processing Engine (a Darbee Darblet-like video processor)
- 23.976 is only supported for 2D. 3D ISO's play at 24.000 (some microstutters are noticeable)
- Only 3D ISO's supported, not MVC MKV's
- Fairly good support (wish it was faster, with more frequent updates)

Hdmkv, has h8 same artefacts/pixellation?
Hows 3d iso mvc there?


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-11-02

Barely have had time to test, but right now H8 plays 3D ISO's in HSBS via Kodi. Seems firmware is a step or two behind Zidoo, but time will tell who will do a better job ahead.


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - Skank - 2015-11-03

Does it have artefacts also?


RE: Player Choices with Kodi + Full 3D + HD Audio - hdmkv - 2015-11-03

Holding off testing for a bit as HiMedia is working on finishing a private beta firmware by end of the week.
