Kodi 18.7 on Fire TV not playing SD TV Recordings correctly
#1
I had Kodi 18.6 install and it could render both HD and SD TV shows.
Now with Kodi 18.7 HD TV is running fine but SD TV is not fitting to the screen anymore.
The picture of SD TV is stretched vertically and is looking terrible.

I fiddled through all the video settings but could resolve the issue.
I really hate when an update breaks existing functionality.

Has anyone a tip?

Yes, fixed with this build?

First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

Hi fristsch,

I had the same problem running on a Fire TV - I can't speak for the OP but this new build seems to have fixed the problem for me!

Quick work Smile

Thank you so much. Will this build put into the official download mirrors any time soon?

Nope - as NDK is deadend for us at the moment, we are looking for the error to fix it, in the meantime 18.7 play store release is stopped, so only those that manually install it, are affected - with that we win time.

This has not much to do with NDK / JNI, it is the new SCALINGMETHOD introduced with this PR.
As stated in the docs: Pixel AR is not properly handled inside android, so we should check if we can avoid the scaling method if PAR != 1.

@Klayer pls. provide a debug log of the start of such TV show, thx!
