Once you initiate a 4K content your TV resolution changes to 3820X2160p
The weird thing is that despite the resolution is set to 1920x1080p, my TV reports it's running 3840x2160. However when playing 4K content the TV switches to the correct resolution.

Can you check your Kodi System Info to see what the resolution is set to?

1920x1080p @30hz

Can the new Gigabyte Brix with Kaby Lake support playback of H.265 ?


RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - 753951 - 2016-12-03

Yes. That's built in into GPU that's part of Kaby Lake generation of CPU's.

Regarding 10-bit and HDR, is it decoding only or output to a HDR TV ?


RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - baba420 - 2016-12-03

I hope Kodi / VLC support HDR playback in the near future. Really weird from Asrock to advertise that the Beebox-S is capable of HDR playback but doesn't give the software to play it.

I hate when companies make false advertisement on their product, I have been trying to contact their tech support for clarification on HDR support on the Beebox Kaby Lake but nothing yet


RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - wesk05 - 2016-12-04

I don't see any false advertisement here. Kodi and other video players need to enable HDR support. It has to do with the way HDR is implemented in Windows. Android certainly has the advantage here in implementation. Before nVIDIA enabled HDR on the Shield, not a single person (outside nVIDIA) knew what it would take to enable HDR in Kodi. It so happened that HDR was built into MediCodec Surface.

Shadow Warrior 2 game has HDR support in Windows and you should be able to enable HDR output within the game on these boxes (at least it works with nVIDIA GTX 1060 that I have).

It's up to Kodi devs now, and based on what @fritsch has said, it won't be anytime soon.


RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - nsnhd - 2016-12-04

Yes, you have to use something else but not Kodi. But I think 10-bit HDR output is hardware/firmware specific, right ? Simply, can your box output 10-bit HDR or not ?

Why is it at kodi devs? Kodi is opensource. Kodi was developed by their users! I also was a user before I started to hack on kodi. We are no company, but a group of volunteers. We would highly, highly appreciate it if someone with the hardware (TV, devices and so on) would step up and implement the missing bits for our DXVA rendering chain. How about that?


RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - hdmkv - 2016-12-04

If any had any programming/coding skills whatsoever... then maybe Smile.

Most of us here are just big Kodi enthusiast and don't have any coding skills(speaking for my self) that why we are seeking the help from kodi Dev to implementation HDR Smile

Can't you use madVR + DSPlayer integration into Kodi? iirc madVR supports HDR.


RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - User 331822 - 2016-12-05

2 steps away from ordering a Beebox-S 7100...

ony thing on my mind...
How about watching live tv with a box, which has only USB 3.0 ports...
Found a lot of German Forums, in which USB 3.0 with a DVB-Tuner was a huge Problem.

Someone using a Box with only 3.0 ports an can confirm that its working flawlessly with a USB TV-Stick?

Its the only thing keepin me away from buying this barebone.

Best regards an thanks in Advance.

I have been thinking about it, just trying to find a good tutorial on YouTube on how to configure it.
