Raspberry pi 4 - Wait for 4k HDR support or buy another board?

  • Hello I bought rpi4 at release date, but still don't have full 4k HDR support. I'm a little bit disappointed because after year rpi don't have these features.

    Sould I wait for support? Or will it be in a long time?


    If it takes a long time, I'd like to buy something else board. Do you have any sugesstions? I look for vero 4k+, but I don't know if there is any better board.

    I want to watchvideos 4k/HDR-10bit with size about 70GB

    thank you so much.

    Main problem is that basically nothing has proper HDR support yet (Vero, AML ... use vendor specific apis that are gone in K19) with an proper Kodi integration. Its getting there but not before Kodi19.

  • HDR in any Kodi version (LibreELEC, OSMC, Kodi, etc) is currently still a work-in-progress. And yes, it will take more time to get 'everything' working. Partly because we are dependent on what the RPi developers themselves are providing us. Stuff for the previous RPi devices wasn't ready in a year either, and those devices had simpler tasks to do.
