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

  • Hi,

    I'm close to pulling the trigger on a j4105 board and have been checking on this thread periodically.

    Anyone know if there have been any updates to HDR in Linux and Kodi? Looks like kernel 5.3 has been released so it might already be useable?

    Also, reading through this thread, it seems that the j4105 will be supported in regards to HDR? It has a UHD Graphics 600 (Gen 9.5 LP GT1 up to 700MHz) GPU.


  • I live in the belief that at least UHD 620 is required for HDR 10.

  • and the j5005 ? No hdr is hdr support yes/or no

  • I am also desperately interested in HDR support. Just out of interest: what is missing currently? Is it Intel driver? Kernel adaptions? Kodi adaptions?

  • I saw a post (can’t find it now) saying Matrix will be released without HDR support. HDR will be added not too far after that apparently. Reason was to get Matrix out earlier, so add-on developers need support Python 3 earlier.

  • Correct. Kodi v19 release has been reshaped into an interim release to force/kick-start the Python3 transition and bigger-ticket items like HDR and GBM/V4L2 support will shift to Kodi v20 .. hopefully on something close to the original v19 schedule (not that Kodi ever does formal scheduling).
