Intel true 10bits/HEVC/HDR support... ?

  • Yes.

    Not an issue for me though. The panel is 8-bit with FRC. I will probably get a better result with RGB 8-bit + GPU dithering than with 4:2:0 12-bit.

    If your panel is 120Hz won't feeding your TV 10bit or more and letting FRC do the work be a better job (as the FRC can work at 120fps and thus can dither between the two 60Hz frames, or 5 x 24Hz frames - whereas with a GPU you'll be displaying the same dither twice at 60fps or 5 times at 24fps? )


    I thought the whole point of HDR 24p working pretty well with 8bit+FRC was because you got a lot of frames to do the FRC dithering on for every source frame? If you dither in the GPU then you don't get the same effect ?

  • noggin How's the Herobox working out for you with HDR content?


    The price has just dropped to £152 on Amazon and I'm tempted to try one out.

  • I know still are some incompatibility example with Samsung HDR TV, which is actually issue of intel driver/

    I had a chance to test my Gemini Lake box with different Samsung HDR TVs.

    - UE40NU7100 (2018 model) - no signal when "HDMI UHD color" enabled

    - UE43RU7090 (2019 model) - no issues

    - UE43TU8000 (2020 model) - no issues

    I haven't been using it much for LibreElec recently. I've currently repurposed it as a DVB-T2 archive box (it permanently records the UK PSB3 Freeview HD Mux - recording BBC One HD, BBC Two HD, ITV HD, C4 HD and C5 HD from a DVB-T2 USB tuner - giving me instant access to the last approx 14 days of broadcast TV from the UK's main channels)
