It fixes both the missing 44.1 kHz audio on some TV/AVR and the frame skips at 59.940 refresh. Original patch is not required so pipeline can stay at 12-bit like the stock 4.7 kernel. Dithering is disabled so I don't think it looks any different than 8-bit (at least on my TV). Extra bits are just padded. I only test on HDMI so your DisplayPort->HDMI setup might still have those two bugs I mentioned but should work as well as older OpenElec builds for you.

That 8-bit patch is still a good idea to keep in the long run since Kodi is unlikely to take advantage of 12-bit for a long time. Since I don't have access to any Intel DisplayPort hardware, you will need someone else to look at why it doesn't work for you. The DP code is very complicated to debug. Hopefully Intel can fix it.

But 10-bit is not that far fetched (already in play). So maybe get something in there that takes 10-bit in mind also.

I will try and see if the lpscon patch Milhouse put in there changed anything. Thanks for that btw Milhouse! Smile

EDIT: No change to the 8-bit patch issue for me with the lpscon patch there.

I can't speak to any newer generation Intel iGPU but Haswell and older don't support 10-bit HDMI at all. It's either 8-bit or 12-bit only. Any future 10-bit support in Kodi would need to use the 12-bit modes.

I uploaded my 12-bit color patches to the bug tracker. You guys can wait for Intel to decide what to do with them or try them yourself. They should be used instead of the 8-bit color patch. Don't mix them.
Ah. Ok Smile Then the patch makes something go wrong with signal sync when using LSPCON. And the LPSCON patch did nothing to help with that.

Not a big issue for me now. I just changed box to another NUC. But it could potentially be a bigger problem with next gen NUCs since Intel will use that same chip on all NUCs to get HDMI 2.0.
