Thanks fritsch! Do you expect the fritschfiretv fixes to make it to v19?


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - b4cksl4sh - 2020-03-03

I wanted to move from my Raspberry Pi 3 to the Fire TV Stick 4K today but audio is totally out of sync when watching German TVB-T2 (x265) streams from my Tvheadend server through Kodi. Works perfectly fine on the Raspberry though. Streamed movies from my NAS looked fine so far but I only checked them briefly. Tvheadend server is running on my NAS (OMV).

The FTV Stick is connected directly to my Samsung TV. Are there any special settings that I need to consider?

Everything is already in, besides the RAW vs. IEC selection possibility. Still stuck on review.

Hi Fritsch. Do you mean that the audio mapping for the channels is now correct? That means the rear channels work correctly when on 7.1pcm audio?

Also, I'm using the UGREEN gigabit adapter with an otg cable. Is it true that the Firestick 4k is still limited to 100mbps even in this case?


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - cconstantin1979 - 2020-03-04

Hint: for better audio quality (especially if you connect the Fire TV stick to an AVR) do not set Volume Leveler to ON on Fire TV settings (it ruins the bass and higher frequencies, not just the volume is reduced).

No. It's wrong in firetv firmware. I hardcore workaround this in the fritschfiretv builds, but this switches backs and rears for everyone else, therefore no material for real kodi.

Ahh OK I understand. Is there any way I will be able to obtain those builds?

Would you be able to help me regarding the network speed query?


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - mamachan - 2020-03-05

Is possible to get Dolby Atmos audio from:

- Netflix App?
- Prime Video?
- Disney+ App?

Thanks

I have a couple problems using the 18.5 Android build, but I'm not sure if they're Kodi issues or hardware setup issues or add-on issues.

First is that cinemascope ratio trailers played with Cinemavision add-on are stretched vertically to fill the screen. These are typically something like 1920 x 816 resolution.

Log shows stuff like this when these trailers are played and stretched: 

2020-03-06 18:44:54.192 T:5772  NOTICE: Whitelist search for: width: 1920, height: 816, fps: 23.976, 3D: false
2020-03-06 18:44:54.195 T:5772  NOTICE: Display resolution ADJUST : 1920x1080 @ 59.939999 - Full Screen (16) (weight: -0.000)

What is odd is that actual full movies in my collection with these same resolutions play back at the correct aspect ratio (though the comparable lines to the above are identical) -- it's only trailers played through Cinemavision that are messed up.

Whitelist may also be part of my other issue: I have frame matching enabled on Fire Tv, and in Kodi, but everything plays back at 60fps instead of 24fps. The Fire Tv is plugged into a Denon 4520 receiver. My Rpi3 plugged into the same receiver plays the same files back at the correct 24fps. In the Fire Tv Kodi's settings, the only available option in the whitelist is 1080p  59.9hz. Fire TV settings are auto resolution and frame matching on.


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - fritsch - 2020-03-07

Don't cut logfiles. No one can help you.

On my FireTV 4k with a Denon X1300W I can switch to 24p nicely.

Thank you. Will the 64 bit version work for Firestick 4k?

Could someone shed light on whether I can get higher than 100mbps using the UGREEN USB 3.0 adapter with an OTG cable?


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - lcapriotti - 2020-03-07

I am experiencing long freezes of Kodi 18.6 official when stopping playback, 18.5 was flawless.
Does this build address/fix that (assuming it's a know issue)?


RE: 2018 - Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K - fritsch - 2020-03-07

Yes. There was a race when stopping  video. How long is the freeze for you? And please post a Debug Log.
