Tough call,@Caramba69 how is the build quality of Asrock Beebox compare to Intel NUC?

To get a picture with hdmi 2.0 I have to clone the picture in the driver settings. 3D still doesn't play on hdmi 2.0, but 4k60 works.

@Caramba69 can you please a picture of your display settings?

I have to unplug the hdmi 2.0 connection, because after booting the box I get the same issues. As I don't watch a lot 4k60 material I leave the connection to the hdmi 1.4 port. At least 4k 10 bit plays well.

OK

A little different setup but with my GTX 1050 I am able to setup HDMI 2.0 to TV for video and displayport to AVR for audio. Kodi runs smooth with this setup even though the AVR resolution maxes out at 1080p vs 4k for my Samsung JS8500 TV. Kodi still runs in 4k even with the displayport connected to the AVR at 1080. I just use the blank display setting since I only use the AVR for audio.

I also noticed there is no way to disable video and only allow audio though HDMI/Displayport, otherwise you loss all connectivity.

And does 3D MVC work?

I'm happy with the quality of the box. If 3D MVC would work with Kodi over the hdmi 2.0 connection the beebox would be perfect! Perhaps it can be solved with the Kodi build?

I will test to connect the beebox at the same time with the hdmi 1.4 port and the display port with my AV receiver as this worked with my Nuc6i3. Adapter will arrive tomorrow.

Which adapter did you go with?

Is it aluminum chassis or plastic?

Aluminium black. I have the club 3D active adapter for display port to hdmi 2.0. But I'm waiting for the adapter from display port to mini Displayport as the club adapter has a mini Displayport.

Hello, I have read the whole thread but now I'm really confused.

As I wrote in other thread I only need to play:
- 4K video (togheter with "simple" 1080/720P videos)
- FULL 3D ISO + SBS 3D MKV

I had chosen the Brix GB-BKi7HA-7500 over the MSI Cubi 2 or Asrock Beebox-S Series. Only issue I seen on Gygabyte is that there's not CIR on board.
May I ask if:
1) Beebox is the only box with the CIR
2) Based on your experience, which is the best box to fit my needs?

Thank you very much
Lucas

I don't think you will find somebody who has experience with all the devices. Im happy with the beebox, but there is an issue with the hdmi 2.0 port. Please see my next post.

Well, I think my choose will go to beebox due to IR sensor (like my actual box: Asrock Vision 3D).
But is not clear for me if the beebox is able to play ISO 3D movies through KODI or through any external player (like TMT).

In regards to the Hdmi issue I have tried to use the display port and the hdmi 1.4 port at the same time. Unfortunately if you connect the display port to the hdmi 1.4 port the display port will be switched off.

But finally I did manage to solve the issue. When I connect the hdmi 2.0 and 1.4 ports to my receiver to different inputs I can switch in the display settings of the Intel driver to use "single display". I also can reboot now without loosing the settings. I don't know why the settings were left lost when I rebooted a couple of days before. I guess I need to test this a little bit more and confirm this later again.

So when I want to watch 4k with more than 30fps I switch the driver setting to use the hdmi 2.0 port/display and switch my receiver input to this port accordingly. Everything else works great with the HDMI 1.4 port.

So run 2 hdmi to receiver?

Since Kaby Lake natively doesn't support hdmi2.0, manufacturers place an extra chip in their devices that changes a DP-port into a hdmi2.0.
Hence the problems you all having? I don't know.

Can someone confirm me that the so called hdmi 2.0 port on the beebox support [email protected]/25/30fps with 4:4:4 Chroma Subsampling AND 10bit?
That means it is possible to display the hdr10 protocol as it should be.
Windows 10 Pro (64bit), Kodi v19.1 "Matrix"
Intel NUC8i3BEH (Samsung 970 Evo, G. Skill Ripjaws 8GB)

I'm not sure what chip newest beebox-s models use, but if it's MegaChips MCDP28x0 then you can read data brief at http://www.megachips.com/products/displayport/MCDP28x0.

Quote:The MCDP28x0 supports Ultra High-Definition video formats, resolutions as high as 4096 x [email protected] Hz with RGB/YCbCr video color formats and color depth up to 16 bpc within the DP1.2 and HDMI2.0 link bandwidth limits. In addition, this device supports HDR imaging and pixel encoding conversion from YCbCr444 to YCbCr420.

And...

Quote:Max video resolution and color depth
- 4Kp60HZ, RGB/YCbCr444, 8bpc
- 4Kp60HZ, YCbCr422, up to 12bpc
- 4Kp60HZ, YCbCr420, up to 16bpc
- 4Kp30HZ, RGB/YCbCr444, up to 16bpc

YCbCr420 support
- YCbCr444-to-420 conversion, up to 16pc
- YCbCr420 pass through, up to 16pc

Metadata handling
- HDMI TX DVI/HDMI mode setting (DPCD register)
- YCbCr444-to-420 conversion (DPCD register)
- IEC60958 BYTE3 channel status overwrite
- CEA861F INFOFRAME gerenartion
- CEA861-3 HDR and Mastering InfoFrame

Their datasheet document (newer than data brief) says
Quote:... has a DisplayPort 1.2a dual-mode receiver and HDMI 2.0a transmitter
