START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
(2018-01-05, 00:08)hdmkv Wrote: I've not gotten 3D ISO's or MVC MKV's to render in 3D mode (half-res or not) under Android OS in S9XX boxes. It works with VidOn (bad idea) or via native movie player, but not Kodi. Sam at OSMC is working on enabling MVC support w/Vero 4K, but not sure if/when we'll see this, and whether it'll be half or full-rez render.
Stretch will be released on Sunday (7th).
3D FP can be tested manually currently, but obviously not suitable for prime time. In short:

    Enable FP:
        echo 3dfp > /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/config
        echo 3doff > /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/config
    Enable FP support via decoder:
        echo 1 > /sys/module/amvideo/parameters/framepacking_support
    Put us in an FP mode for HDMITX
        echo FAKEVIC > /sys/class/display/mode # force reset
        echo 1080fp60hz > /sys/class/display/mode

The problem is this isn't going to work on a lot of devices. When AMLogic added checks for Dolby Vision, they disabled 3D signalling in hdmitx. DV and 3D use the same registers.

I was able to fix this with, but who knows if a lot of Android boxes will ever see an update with a fix from AML. This patch also fixes 3D autoswitching (and is why it hasn't been working properly for some time) for other files such as SBS files.
