WeTek Play2 - 4K PVR - HD Audio - Dual Boot - Specs & Reviews

In the past the -H designator on AMLogic SoC's stood for HEVC I believe.

It seems now that the S9xx series is released this -H now stands for Dolby and DTS licenced SoC's, which cost more as AMLogic pay for the licences themselves and pass that cost on to the Dolby/DTS approved hardware sellers.

All S905 hardware currently on the market uses the AML S905 Revision B SoC. This is the one that displays 10-bit 4K HEVC picture issues with various 4K Dolby HEVC and Astra 4K 10-bit Sat. video test clips. Picture issues confirmed now by Noggin, Wesk05, WeTek and myself (on two S905 developer boards), Ned probably as well.

What does this mean for the end user of these Rev. B S905 SoC's. Probably not much at this present point in time if you are not playing certain 10-bit 4K HEVC content, which is actually very thin on the ground at the moment. It may be an issue sometime in the future if and when 10-bit 4K HEVC content becomes widely available.

If you were selling a 10-bit 4K DVB Tuner, media player like the WeTek Play2 series then it would be a big deal. Hence the wait for the fixed S905 Rev. C SoC from AMLogic.

I'm not that familiar with Microsoft Playready licences, it seems a bunch of DRM Video on Demand services use it as seen here:
