I tested the 2016 Mi Box (Oreo) last week, so “S” will be the same. And it does 4K HDR YouTube when using the SmartYouTube App.

A premium Netflix subscription will also give you 4K HDR on some titles with Atmos audio. Smile

Wow that is certainly interesting.. and to think shield being the premium android tv box doesn’t have hdr youtube. Does this have something to do with the SoC mibox uses, @wrxtasy?

And apologies for taking this thread on a non Kodi tangent

Even the approx 3.5 years old AML HDR capable chipsets like the S905D, S905X(Mi Boxes) and S912 have ARM Mali GPU’s that supported HW decoding of Google’s royalty free VP9 Profile 2 codec.

That codec is used for encoding 4K HDR YouTube content.

The Maxwell GPU in ALL Shields is 2014 designed tech which obviously missed out in it’s engineering design timing schedule to include support for VP9 p2 HW decoding.

It is probably possible to have 5.1 audio from Netflix with any home theater:

Please, could any beta user test if it's possible to obtain Dolby Digital 5.1 audio through the optical toslink cable? Thanks!

I mean, not using KODI, just using Netflix or Prime Video official apps ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
