Xiaomi 4K HDR 'Mi Box' (Android TV set-top box)
Hi, I have a Xiaomi Mi box S that I was using with my old 1080p. I bought an LG OLED tv yesterday, and I was trying to fix the res auto-switch. I read in the first post that unfortunately it does not work. What do you suggest? Leaving it at 4k2k24hz? And changing it back to 60hz when I want to watch something on Youtube?

To bad WebOS does not have Kodi and SmartYoutube Sad

LG OLED you don't need auto-switch, 120hz panel can payback fps 23,972 without judder(23,972*5 = 119,86 hz). Install plex/emby on webos (they use system player ) are better than lot of external player. You can playback also mp4 dolby vision dual track dual layer from BD uhd.

Hey, thanks. I read your post and was testing plex and emby this last couple of days but I still miss Kodi. Plex blinds you with the subtitles when you have HDR on, and emby puts a massive black box backgroud on the subs.

What do you mean by system player? Maybe I'm doing something wrong with Plex/emby.

Not sure I get your answer?

Resolution auto-switch is to allow your TV to upscale rather than Kodi (so 720p and 1080p stuff is upscaled by the TV's superior upscaling, rather than Kodi upscaling everything to 2160p using less-well implemented upscaling)

Frame rate auto-switch is needed if you watch 25/50Hz content as well as 23.976/24, 29.97 and 59.94, as the TV should switch between 100 and 120/119.86Hz panel refresh.  (Ideally you'd also output 23.976 and 24Hz at 23.976 and 24Hz natively too to avoid relying on 3:2 pulldown detection and removal in the TV, and to avoid 1000/1001 micro-stutters if you play 24.000Hz content - such as a number of European Blu-ray releases, which otherwise will be output at 59.94Hz with stutters?)

ONLY Pansasinc OLED TV have Frame rate auto-switch with internal apps, can be checked with android app.  

It's simple LG OLED can playback any content without  judder, limitation are only HD audio and usb 3.0/gbps adapater fot UHD content.

Is there anybody from Kodi team who could explain why Dolby True HD passthrough is working with latest Kodi 18 version but not with Kodi 19 (according to the fact that we are still having Android 8.0 on our MiBox) ?
Is it due to a bug ? The new way sound is handled by Kodi 19 ?
Will it be addressed in a futur update of Kodi 19 ?
Thanks for your answer.

Come on guys, I’m sure a dev guy could quickly answer this question.
I understand when you say that it’s not a bug in Kodi in case of Oreo 8.1 or Pie, because it’s clearly Xiaomi that is responsible for removing the capability in the firmware.
But in case of Oreo 8.0, I won’t admit without any explanation that it’s not a bug, because last Kodi 18 version works flawlessly.

I've opened a ticket here: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/issues/19607
They seem to have an explanation...

Hey all. I just installed the new Mi Box 3 update. I have a question regarding the HDR to SDR function. I have set it both to "Auto" as well as "On" and it doesn't seem to be working in Kodi. I am using the default video player and still when I try to watch an HDR video file, the colours are all washed out. Important to note that my TV does not support HDR (hence why I need the HDR to SDR function). It is a Vizio M65-C1. It is a 4K TV but does not do HDR at all.

Second question I have is whether it is possible to install MrMC as a player that I can watch my video files with by default? I have heard it is more optimized for low power devices such as the Mi Box 3. I have looked at the external players wiki page but am finding it a bit difficult to understand in the context of Android TV.

Thanks for the help all!
