Hyperion addon does not work with inputstream.adaptive (Netflix etc.) with Pi4

  • thnx but that means all the 4k content on kodi will be 1080?

    And hyperion works with this method?

    If we cannot watch 4k then why we should upgrade?

    A quick test showed that 4kp24 content (tested with Interstellar-divx-hevc-uhd-51ch-4K.mkv) played fine with hyperion active (both at 4k and HD output at 24Hz), but 4kp60 seems to be too much (both at HD and 4k output). So, sorry, reducing the output resolution doesn't seem to help.

    If you want something that plays all 4k content with hyperion active then ATM the RPi4 is not the right choice for you. It probably will get fixed at some point but as posted numerous times there's no ETA for the fix.

    so long,


  • many thanks buddy. I will use then the 3b.

    When it is fixed in the future then I could upgrade to 4.

    Good luck everyone

  • HiassofT any clue about subtitles issue I commented before?

    If I can help with any kind of test please let me know.

    Sorry, no idea ATM.

    I tried to reproduce it yesterday but wasn't really successful.

    With hdmi_enable_4kp60=1 in config.txt I got working output both with subtitles on and off (played Disenchantment S02E01, screen running at 1080p24) and without hdmi_enable_4kp60=1 in config.txt I got occasional black screens, no matter if I enabled subtitles or not (same episode, same resolution/refreshrate).

    so long,


  • OK, it is weird, maybe is is some setting I have related with UI, onscreen display or similar, anyways but will wait for a future update and in the meanwhile I am using external grabber, and since I limited inputstream using a bandwith max value everything everything plays smoothly.

  • Yesterday I switched to my original hyperion config file (default internal grabber) to watch a movie from my HDD (it is more stable and colours are more accurate), everything OK. After that I tried a movie from HBO addon (using inputstream.adaptive also) and hyperio worked like a charm, just like watching a movie from my HDD. Then I tried a Netflix movie, crossed my fingers... but no luck... black screen, flashes... Then I switched back to my other config file, the one using external USB grabber and it worked again...

    So, this means it is not a inputstream.adaptive related issue but related with Netflix addon itself, right?

  • Might not be useful at all but maybe deactivating vp9-profiles in netflix helps. Much better performance. I also limitted the Inputstream to 3000000 (stock clocks / 5000000 with OC). Seems to be the limit for my RPI4 within netflix and widevine stuff running in the background. Might give enough performance overhead for hyperion.

  • In which folder must the dely.conf?

    I dont have .config/system.d/service.hyperion.service.d/

    Maybe that?


  • The delay.conf file needs to go into.config/system.d/service.hyperion.service.d/ - you have to create this directory before.

    so long,
