Does dolby vision playback for movies work with Libre Elec on the Minix u9-h?

  • At the moment, the only DV-compatible TVs (DV by HDMI or USB) are mainly oled TVs from LG and Lowe.

    Minix U9-H LibreElec 8.2 - Yamaha RX-V681 - LG 55C7V

  • Only Sony had DV issues over HDMI and they're largely fixed. Every other DV TV works fine over HDMI (LG, Vizio, TCL). Regardless it's not really relevant to this discussion, since we're only concerned with TVs that do support DV over HDMI.


    Unfortunately, looks like the new version of PowerDVD won't support Dolby Vision. Without a working software implementation, I feel like this is going to be really difficult.

    High end LG LCDs support DV as well.

    Vizio TVs too.

    I don't think my LG is a high end tv but it supports DV.

    RPI3 1GB, MINI MX-G 2GB, Mini M8S II 2GB (7.0-devel-20170430185848-r23797-g7772046), H96 Pro 3GB (8.2), H/K AVR 161S, LG 60SJ810V 4k HDR tv

  • If anyone is able to get a copy of this software, it could be the holy grail you're searching for. It can mux dual layer dv profiles into a single layer and vice versa, or basically anything dv related you wish. I'm sure it's even how LG made their test file :cool:

    That software seems amazing!! Is anyone able to get it? coudlnt find anything on it int he web...

  • Just wanted to say thanks all for your research. I was testing video files on my S912 device and noticed HDR played fine but HLG and DV did not and this thread cleared things up for me. A shame since the HW supports them. Does anyone know if HLG or DV is supported in Android on S912 devices?

  • Android N+ supports single track Dolby Vision, we know this because some phone hardware supports Netflix DV playback and it's likely Google's new Chromecast/Android TV Stick coming out at I/O next week will replace the Chromecast Ultra (and therefore also have DV support). The problem is of course that non-streaming DV content (UHD Blu-ray disc backups) is dual-track and there are no public software implementations of the dual-track decoder. If there is exists a studio tool that can losslessly convert between dual- and single- track (I don't know if that package linked by Grencola is legit or not), it's likely that we could get DV playback working on the new Android TV stick. But that wouldn't be LibreELEC.
