Quote:RPi2 Overclocked on Turbo settings
Not had a Pi before, but ordered a Pi 2. Is it fairly easy to overclock as you suggested? A guide somewhere? Thanks.

For the benefit of anyone else reading, Overclocking a RPi is a very easy procedure.
You either need to edit the config.txt file which is stored on one of the partitions on the SD card or use a built in Overclocking app like the excellent one in the new OSMC OS. There is also a Kodi add-on I believe available.

Config.txt file, example on standard Turbo settings:
(and for those being extreme cheapskates and thinking of trying my Licence codes on their RPi2. They actually wont work as they are tied to individual RPi's)

1. VidOn XBMC always can play Blu-ray iso/folder in full BD-J menu mode. Do you mean BD Player profile 2.0? Now we have already supported profile 5.0.
2. And VidOn Box do support external subtitles, so I think that shouldn't be "?".
Supported external subtitles, ass/ssa, srt, smi, idx+sub.
And the subtitles are displayed in 3D mode in the 3D blu-ray movies. Btw, what is full 3D?

3. $70 includes the first year's membership fee, and the $15 is not mandatory if you don't need HD audio and BD-J menu.
4. VidOn Box supports VC-1 playback, we support it from the VidOn XBMC (Frodo).
5. VidOn Box now can play 29.970 MPEG2 smoothly, this issue has been fixed on Jan 22, 2015.
6. VidOn Box now support 24/50/60 auto FPS switch, this problem has been fixed on Jan 16, 2015. We added the auto switch for all kinds of sources.

Please use the new version to do the test, you can get the latest v 1.0.0.0 on our forum.

very interesting.... A31s vs hi3798 with Image/Display Processing and video engine?

full 3D = MVC or 3D blu-ray movies(FULL HD 3D),so not mistake with SBS TAB

Hey, hdmkv
I see that you added some items.
BD/DVD folder playback, of course yes, we regard the folder as an .iso file, click and play, so that you don't need to enter the folder to find out the index.bdmv.
I'm not the tester, but I played the BD folder source for many times, it works very well.

I'll have mine this weekend to try, but from what I've read, it does proper 23.976 and reports on PQ are that it's excellent.

Oh, of course we support the full 3D, not the SBS or TAB.

Frankly, I joined some groups on QQ (a Chinese instant communication app), there are lots of Chinese Q5 users, they seems all have some complaint on the HiMedia Q5, I'm not here to attack others, but I said the truth.
When I told them that recently a lot of people on Kodi forum love the Q5 very much, and I even threw the post links to them, they just cannot understand why.
Very interesting...

Maybe the first release of VidOn's Helix, I'm not sure. I asked the question on the morning meeting and the developer told me this feature is ready.

Wolly, it appears what you released to Beta testers is VidOn Kodi (14) Alpha, not next Gotham build right? Are you abandoning Gotham & now going to Helix? If so, I'll wait to test until 3D is added.

Yes, according to the plan, the v1.0.0.0 is the last version of Gotham (maybe will release one more to fix some issues), next we are going to release the new version based on Helix.

easy ...money vs function
Himedia q5 in EU cost 140€
- FULL 3D with external subtitle( it's must because, HD audio usually is only in EN )
- HD audio passthrough
- nice quality and video engine
- nice player app


HTPC with same function FANLESS cost 450€ + windows + powerdvd(without external subtitle)

VidOn BOx in EU is very hard to find, in italy ( impossible without tax plus ) only store i have found cost 174€.
In EU ( more in italy ) VidOn BOx is unknown, there is not review or test.

i knowed SOC AllWinner don't have good support also only from last release lot of bug as closed.

Amlogic box have some trouble and not support full 3d and hd audio.

rockchip box have some trouble and not support full 3d and hd audio.

RealTek 1195 i don't too much money to try all box,and i know there is problem with 23.976.

PCH a-4x0 is great player but have nmj .... Mede8er X3D also is great player but don't have jukebox like kodi.

Why himedia q5 is not good choice ? HIsilicon hi 3798 has design for media box not for table or phone , all function write in datasheet are development in sw and work.

IMHO for italy(EU) user, happy to change my analysis if is wrong.
