RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - movie78 - 2017-04-05

This whole Apollo Lake and Kaby Lake release have been a fiasco.

Very disappointing.

The nvidia shield gets to be more appealing everyday.

With the Shield not doing MVC 3d playback (ever from what I hear). The Shiled is the best solution for anyone without a 3d TV for everything else.

Personally I am going to stick with shield and build a 3d MVC KODI box just for 3d movies. Just need to decide on the best solution. Personally I think the Oppo 203 would be the best solution for MVC 3d playback of Networked Content, or wait for the Oppo 205.

Reality check...

Android full stop is not the best OS platform to use at all for seamless easy to use 1080p / 4K streaming due to no App Auto resolution switching on 99% of Android media players.

There are numerous reports of "Soft" picture output from Android boxes when you play 1080p video at a 4K resolution and let the media players upscale video to 4K. 4K TV's should be doing this quality upscaling from 720/1080p to produce a sharper picture output and only Auto switch to a 4K resolution for actual 4K video content.

The bigger the display, the easier this picture "Softness" is to spot.

Simply put you need Android App - Auto resolution switching - and the only Android device that does that is the Amazon FireTV2, or stick with Intel and LibreELEC - HDMI 2.0 platforms if you value quality picture output.

nope. oppo confirmed cinavia for all forms of playback except when fed decoded content over HDMi input


your best bet as i have done is just custom build. can go cheap or expensive.

Is that a direct connection to the TV or you going through your AVR?


RE: Intel Kaby Lake Hardware - movie78 - 2017-04-07

Through an AVR

Connect to HDMI 2.0
Change the resolution to 3840X2160 then HDCP will PASS

I don't have PDVD 17 to test HDR on the AsRock Beebox so i am not sure if HDR is working and it doesn't work in Kodi.

Well I do have PDVD 17 and HDR playback is not working. With Intel HDMI 1.66 firmware I get the HDR pop-up on my television, but the screen remains black. With Asrock's latest HDMI 1.61 firmware it remains black and no HDR pop-up at all.

I hope that Asrock will fix this issue.
