Is there combing? Especially when doing horizontal panning?

Use your eyes is probably your best bet.

Question, how do I know if the hardware deinterlacing is working as intended on a clip? The software options are greyed out for obvious reasons I assume and it says off on deinterlace.

Watch a native interlaced source with motion and see if it is deinterlaced or not. Anything native interlaced (i.e. not shot 24/25p) shouldn't have combing on horizontal motion (i.e. you shouldn't see thin lines)

News channel tickers on 480i, 576i or 1080i sources are usually a good test - if they comb on horizontal motion, then they aren't being deinterlaced correctly, if they are smooth with no combing, then they probably are.

Using your eyes, as nickr says, is the best way to check. It's very clear, very quickly... Some platforms - like the AMLogic SoCs - have hardware deinterlacing that isn't controlled directly by Kodi - so the deinterlace option is greyed out (as deinterlacing takes place automatically when an interlaced source is played back in a codec that is hardware accelerated I believe?)

That's correct.

Content will be deinterlaced (progressive sources bypass DI).
DI is quite configurable, but not via Kodi. There are a number of module params that can be adjusted but we don't recommend doing this.

Yes the AMLogic family of SoC's has long been known for high quality Advanced Motion Adaptive hardware deinterlacing at budget prices. With the S905's I cannot tell the difference between deinterlacing quality on those and my 2 year old 4K TV.

Such deinterlacing quality was one of the primary reasons I bought a ODROID C1 - AML S805 a couple of years ago now for fast action Football viewing - which is the ultimate stress test. Smile

The ultimate stress test are these test patterns: HD 1080i Test Patterns Test the patterns & let me know how the Amlogic SoCs fare Wink

Also try this clip from FPD Benchmark Disc: Rotating Globe

Haven't seen this mentioned, so, there is an excellent review for the Vero 4K here - https://www.avforums.com/review/osmc-vero-4k-media-streamer-review.13857 Oh,and I should have mentioned its a very good review, 9/10 !!

Apologies if its posted elsewhere and I missed it!

Review here as well:

https://www.htpcbeginner.com/osmc-vero-4k-review/

"... the Vero 4K also makes a wonderful Kodi box for first-time users. Because there’s no difficult set up involved and it’s ready to use out of the box, the Vero 4K is arguably the best Kodi box on the market... Overall, I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the OSMC Vero 4K. It’s the best device I’ve tried which comes with Kodi pre-installed, and delivers maximum performance. It provides desktop-caliber power in a small form factor."

10% off everything currently over at the OSMC store so finally decided to order one. Looking forward to it Smile

3d mvc is being worked on? Cool, might get one too then
I wonder how far they are in progress with it?


RE: OSMC announced new Vero4k, opinions? - rchads89 - 2017-09-25

How are you all getting on with this box its reviews are fantastic, not only 5 year support of updates.


RE: OSMC announced new Vero4k, opinions? - Kapsville - 2017-09-25

Hey, whats the difference between the Xiaomi 4k and the Vero4k? Thx in advance


RE: OSMC announced new Vero4k, opinions? - Skank - 2017-09-25

I read that vero 4k has no power on/off switch.
Sad
bah
Why on earth bring a device with no powerswitch
although they say it doesnt consume much

still it should have an on/off button


RE: OSMC announced new Vero4k, opinions? - Skank - 2017-09-25

OSMC does it uses kodi's internal player or external player?
What about it when 3d mvc support comes out, will it be internal (like afedchin did for nuc's) or external?

The Vero 4K is an always-on device. If you need a power switch perhaps there may be power adapters with a build-in on/off switch that are compatible? I've seen them for the RPi2/3.

Me too, but if it's going to be a half-rez solution as we've had w/AmLogic chips to date, will pass.
