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 https://paste.osmc.tv/raw/elevutajev, 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. 

Is this still a valid method to test frame packing 3D output on the Vero 4K?
