LibreELEC-S905.arm-9.0-nightly-20180607-36c2619 Display Resolution can´t be set to 1920x1080i (50/60 Hz)

  • KODI 18.0 Alpha2 Git:593949a

    In Settings-System-Display-Resolution 1920x1080i is listed.

    If I try to activate this resolution then nothing happens or wrong Resolution is taken!

    As a follow up no 1920x1080i options are listed in whitelist.

    Only way to get Display Resolution to 1920x1080i is manually editing the guisettings.xml:

    1. <setting id="videoscreen.resolution">21</setting>
    2. <setting id="videoscreen.screen" default="true">0</setting>
    3. <setting id="videoscreen.screenmode">00192001080050.00000istd</setting>

    I think it is not a kernel Problem :

    1. # cat /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/disp_cap
    2. 480p60hz
    3. 576p50hz
    4. 720p60hz
    5. 1080i60hz*
    6. 720p50hz
    7. 1080i50hz

    1080i is shown - but not selectable

    I have tested with CE 8.90.3, LE last nightly and 3 different Tvs (HDready/FullHD)

    This bug wasn´t there until whitelist feature was introduced

    Same behavior was reported from other users using generic builds. Kodi guys claimed this wouldn´t be a Kodi problem .. :thumbdown:

    I am not a developer, so I can not say who should fix this issue.

    don´t know if it is correct but did this, also : #17910 (Kodi 18.0Alpha2 Git:87ca87c GUI can´t be set to 1920x1080i (50/60 Hz)) – Kodi - TRAC

    please take a look at that issue

  • Same problem on the RK3328 Rockchip builds from Kwiboo.

    No 1080i or other interlaced resolution is available in the whitelist.

    I will post logs later but there are already a lot of logs there - feedback for test build LibreELEC-RK3328.arm-9.0-devel-box-trn9.img

    It is definitely a problem with the whitelist setting introduced in Kodi.

    I just hope someone from Kodi will be able to fix the problem since it seems to effect a lot of LibreELEC users, doesn't matter for which ARM device.

  • As I currently understand it (caution: I am not a developer) Kodi outputs progressive so the whitelist only shows progressive modes. If media uses an interlaced format Kodi shaders are used to deinterlace and render as progressive.
