  • Fixed: missing display refresh rate info on Debug Info OSD video (Alt+O). 
  • Improved: swapchain performance using DXGI_SWAP_EFFECT_FLIP_DISCARD.
  • Improved: 10-bit swapchain surfaces used if is detected HDR capable TV (even for SDR videos).
  • Fixed: not working SSL internet connectivity due not usable path to build-in CA certs bundle.

It has been a long road plenty of difficulties to get everything to work well. HDR passthrough will be attempted later...

NOTE: addons included in the installer are not up to date so is normal the version check error at fist run until addons are auto-updated.

For maximum quality is recommended white list only 3840x2160 video modes and in Settings / Player enable "Switch display refresh rate at Start/Stop".
And form contextual video menu (video settings) while playing HDR video set Tone Mapping method to "Hable" and make sure scaling and deinterlacing methods are set both to DXVA. Then hit button "Set as default for all media".

Been testing for a few hours and everything looks good.

Thanks for the hard work.

Xbox Media Center (oups, Kodi) soon up-to-date for all Smile
Nice job! Great fixes!

Currently updating my Xbox with the latest nightly build too.


RE: Kodi Matrix UWP Xbox v19.1 Preview - SSBVegeta - 2021-07-09

So do the latest updates mean Kodi on the Xbox is just as good as it is on the nVidia Shield TV?

I'm thinking of replacing my 2015 Shield TV with a Xbox Series S.

We don't have HDR payback working yet if that's important to you.

Is the menu interface / UI smooth without any lag?

Long time lurker, first time poster here. Thanks team for the hard work. I can not wait to try.

I hope in near future with the HDR and audio passthrough support Xbox will become one of the best devices to use Kodi.

Do you have to pay for a developer account?

Yes, but it's only about £14 ($19).
