v18 LibreELEC Testbuilds for x86_64 (Kodi 18.0)

Is it looking likely that we will be getting HDR for x86 libreelec? I just bought an apollo lake box for 4k HDR but didn't realise it's not really supported yet. If it's not likely to be supported in LE9 then I might just get a AMlogic S912 device or something.

The Linux kernel doesn't currently support HDR.

HDR support needs to be implemented at every step of the rendering chain - from Kodi to ffmpeg to mesa/graphics drivers and eventually the kernel etc. Once all of that is done it will be supported by LibreELEC and other Linux-based distributions.

Be careful with AMLogic as (at the time of writing) it doesn't actually support "true" HDR - AMLogic implements an 8bit-to-10bit conversion which is not HDR and in terms of visuals it doesn't compare to true HDR. Simply outputting everything at BT2020/4:4:4/10-bit (which is what AMLogic does) doesn't mean it is "true" HDR and indeed some receivers/displays object to being fed this type of fudged signal.
