Problem with movies - G-Sync Monitor vs 23,976 fps
#1
Hi,

first of all sorry for my English

I have an Asus PG348Q Monitor with G-Sync and I also have a GTX 1080 TI.

Both, the monitor and 1080 TI work ok with G-Sync while gaming, however, I can not make it work while watching movies at 23,976 fps

I just only have make it work in the past in Kodi v16.1 (never with newer versions) but a few time later it stops working.

I have been searching an it seems not easy, but If it worked for a time it must be done, isn't it?

Hope someone can help me. Thanks!

EDIT:

I am still making some test, and do not ask me why, but now, kodi, with UHD MKVs activates perfectly g-sync and it put the screen to 24 frames per second, however, it fails with 1080p MKVs.

Here is a photo with one UHD mkv:

At least now I know that I am not crazy, that yes, I had seen it before.

EDIT-2:

Here is the log:   https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/fGtmH5MD5N/

G-Sync in kodi works ok with the file "Tomb Raider (2018) [UHDRemux 2160p HEVC Dual AC3 5.1 TrueHD Atmos 7.1 Subs][GrupoHDS].mkv" but not ok with the file "Ready Player One (2018) [BDRip 1080p x264 Dual AC3 5.1 Subs][GrupoHDS].mkv"

A bunch of new hardware and then use more than 2 year old software?

Hi,

I know, but as I've told in my first post, I have not been able to make work g-sync at all (in any condition or case) with any version older than v16.1

That is the only reason while I am using this older version. This older version works OK with g-sync sometimes (not always unfortunately) but fails in gpu-acceleration with the new HEVC codec.

About the log, anything why g-sync and 23,976 fps works ok in the UHD mkv and not ok in the 1080p mkv?

Greetings

today I have done more testing, I have updated with a clean installation of kody kodi-17.6-Krypton-x86 and Nvidia 417.01-desktop-win10-64bit-international-whql (latest drivers at this day). I have forced while gaming wither 3 and NVIDIA DSR so much graphic load in order to achieve 24 fps in the game, and yes, the monitor, with g-sync gets a 24 Hz refresh, here is a photo of this:

What it is clear, that g-sync Nvidia Cards and monitor are able to work/refresh at 24 fps/Hz

So, ¿why kodi can not put the g-sync monitor to work/switch to 24 fps/Hz?

Here some logs of the failed attempts to achieve kodi to put the monitor at 24 fps/Hz:

It is a pity to have such great monitor and not to be able to see in films at 24 fps/Hz

Thanks

I have not been able to make work g-sync at all

This has come up before, the solution was turn off g-sync  and try turning on vsync with "Adjust display refresh rate"
