Intel Gemini Lake

Is HDR now supported on an Intel Gemini Lake based mini pc, for example N4100 with Windows 10 Pro 64 (1809 newest drivers, especially for the built-in graphic 600)?

Thanks in advance,
Joe

Happy and healthy new year - all the best to you and yours.

AIUI HDR support is still reserved for Core i3 and higher CPUs. Intel haven't implemented it on CPUs lower than this (like Celeron/Pentiums)  It's a platform differentiating function.

Hi there,

i have a ASRock J5005-ITX Board here and am curious, if it is able to decode 3d-MVC.
The output for vainfo is following:

There is no entry for MVC, but for VAProfileH264MultiviewHigh and VAProfileH264StereoHigh.

Does somebody know, if this is a good or a bad sign? Huh

Not sure, if anybody is interested in this. Huh

I just did a test with 2 different 3d-movies, one MVC-mkv and one side-by-side-mkv. When starting both of them, in the 3d-menu i have the possibility to playback the movie hardware-based. When i then set the screen (in my case a video projector) to frame-sequential i get a picture which has a tiny similarity to a 3d-picture. But disturbed and headache-causing...

Does that mean, that the gemini-lake processor is basically able to hardware-decode MVC and the code is still premature.
Or is it just rubbish? Blush

Whit what kind of players did you try it? On Windows you also have: PowerDVD, Jriver and DSPlayer+MadVR as possibilities for 3D MVC.

No Windows, no PowerDVD etc. Wink

Lubuntu 18.10 + Kodi 18rc5. I'm interested in the hardware-decoding possibilities of the gemini-board.

To fully exploit the hardware capabilities of Intel GPUs you need decent drivers, and currently the Linux drivers are lagging behind the Windows drivers significantly in support for some aspects of hardware decode.

Whilst 10-bit and HDR support (on Core-i series) devices is likely to arrive in Linux (it's been there in Windows for quite a while) other support (like 3D MVC decode) is probably going to remain Windows-only?

Hi all
Can I ask for your opinions please . I’m looking to upgrade from my old dn2820 and chromebox.
Looking at the NUC7PJYH, would you recommend this ? Not after HDR at the moment as I will upgrade again when ready and stick this one in other room.just ability to play 4 k correctly and have no audio issues for passthrough to my receiver.
Ideally still able to use my current remote , Xbox one I think it is .
I tend to use libreelec rather than windows , but not for any reason other than my nuc is only for Kodi.
Thanks for any advice from a technophobe

I have this NUC+8Go of Ram + SSD and it works great with latest librelec release with Kodi 18.

I took this nuc for manyn reason:
1) Enough horsepower to manage emulators untill PSX: I tested and it works perfecty fine with Beetle PSX wich is a quite demanding emulator.
2) H.265 and VP9 perfectly decoded
3) Relativly cheap 

Everything works fine but...the only thing is...I have kind of a glitch with libreelec that appears on the interface. Randomly the first lines of the screen do weird color glitch. Did somebody experienced the same issue? Is there a fix?

It's not a deal breaker but it's a bit dispointing...

I suspect it's a driver issue with HD605. But I can't confirm it...and I don't know if somebody saw the issue and can work on a fix...

Do you mean the issue discussed here? No fix at the moment, as we don't know what is causing it.

Great thanks for the reply , much appreciated.

Can I ask did you update the bios on this to get ir to work ? I currently use a Xbox one remote on my old nuc .

I’ve got the new nuc ,just need to put together (which may take a while as I’m about as useful as a chocolate teapot when it comes to computers but give it a go ) .

The issue re the line on the screen , is that visable when watching movies from hdd/nas or just on the menus ?

Thanks

Jamie

Help please guys before I contact intel/scan

On booting the NUC7PJYH, I can access the bios. It appears none of the USB port are outputting any power .

The blue light on the fromt is flashing 3 times , which I believe is a memory issue but would that stop me getting into bios and usb power ?

The memory I have is Corsair vengeance 2x 4gb
Model no CMSX8GX4M2A2400C16

Can anyone offer any guidance or do you think the unit is defective?

Thanks

Sorry to ask more questions
I’ve just updated the bios on new NUC7PJYH.
I’ve now installed libreelec the newest version .
I’ve tried to use my remote after install , which is the black Xbox one remote I used for my old nuc with no luck .
Have I missed something ? Should I have installed something else or a setting in Kodi ?

Been scratching my head for a while tobtru figure it out with no luck .

Any guidance appreciated .

Thanks

smp1, I purchased an Asrock J5005-ITX (Gemini Lake) in November of 2018 and experienced no HDMI problems when connected to my LCD TV monitor, however, I did have memory compatibility problems with the board.  I first tried a Corsair 4gb X 2 dual channel set that did not work with the board.  With just a single memory stick installed, or with both memory sticks installed, the board appeared to be dead.  Not even beep codes were present unless I removed both memory sticks.

I did have success with a G.Skill 4gb X 2 dual channel set, with the bios detecting the memory as being dual channel.  Others had similar memory compatibility problems with the J5005-ITX which are documented on the Asrock forum, link provided below.

I also own an Asrock J4205-ITX (Apollo Lake) board that had an annoying HDMI port blank screen problem. That problem lasted for about a year or two, but was finally resolved by installing the latest bios update.

For what is worth, I ran the Realbench benchmark utility on both boards.  The J4205-ITX had a system score of 26,736 while the J4205-ITX had a system score of 13,540.

I didn't see a way to edit my post, but the Realbench results should have read...
