I'm running the PPA version from post#1 (Xubuntu with Openbox session on N3150). All looks fine and the image quality is remarkably good!Cool

But i'm having an issue with changing refresh rates. Adjust display refresh rate is set to "On start/stop". Sometimes kodi won't change the refresh rate, but stay in default mode (60Hz).
Currently I can reproduce it, by just booting into kodi, selecting any movie and playing it. After starting several other movies or by entering settings menu, sometimes the correct refresh rate will be used. But up to now, I could'n find any condition/action, which would activate the refresh rate again. To me it looks more of being random.

Logs are:
dpkg -l |grep mesa >
cat ~/.kodi/temp/kodi.log >
dmesg >

(booting in kodi and opening "How_To_Train_Your_Dragon_2_t04.mkv", which is in 24p and sometimes also played in 24p)
See the kernel discussion. Install a 4.3-rc4 or the kernel 4.2 I provided.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
