MECOOL Android TV Box KM6 Series w/ Amlogic S905X4 SoC
#96
""Thanks for the Reply, this sounds to me like those channels are US based, is that correct? As I am based in Europe, the channels here are encoded in 1080i h264 at 25fps. So therefore there is a test clip in the Kodi samples WIKI linked here (Sample 1080i h264 at 25fps Video) and if you could test that, it would be great. It should playback if everything works well at 50fps and there should be no interlacing lines. 

Another question. Is it possible for Kodi to switch resolution if you set the box to be at 50Hz as a standard. I am just not sure if the box needs to be set to automatic (which would probably result in a standard 60Hz frequency) and as most content here is 25fps, setting the box at 50fps would not lead to much frequency switching apart from watching a movie at 24fps.

Hope that's not too complicated phrased what I have written in the second part of this post. Tricky to phrase it if english is not you native language "

I ran that video clip using Kodi, with the "HDMI self-adaptation" turned "off" your file play without any dropped frames BUT LOTS of skipped frames.......  With the "HDMI self-adaptation" set to "total mode", the Mecool KM6 switched to 25fps as shown from my TV stats (see photo), and played perfectly.
