Whitelist on 4k TV

  • Hi there,


    on my fullHD i add following resolutions to my whitelist:


    1920x1080p - 23,98 Hz

    1920x1080p - 50,00 Hz

    1920x1080p - 60,00 Hz


    Libreelec/Home Menu is 1920x1080p with 50 Hz.


    All works fine.


    Which resolutions should i add to whitelist with a 4k tv? Same like 1080p?


    3840x2160p - 23,98 Hz ?

    3840x2160p - 50,00 Hz ?

    3840x2160p - 60,00 Hz ?


    And is it worth to set the home menu to a 4k resolution?

    i remeber that chewitt give a recommandation but i dont find the thead.


    Thanks ins advance!

  • The reason for skipping 1080 @ 25/29.97/30 is interlaced content which needs the "double" refresh rates to render (Kodi always outputs progressive) but there is no interlaced broadcast 4K media so you don't need to do the same thing. So whitelist whatver 4K modes are visible.

    Hi,


    so that means i add all available modes for 3840x2160p in my whitelist?


    Is it worth to set Kodi menu to 3840x2160p with 60Hz ?

  • I wouldn't bother with 4K desktop. Kodi skins are 720p or 1080p so they will be upscaled and the TV normally does a better job of scaling to the native 4K panel resolution than Kodi does, and running at 4K forces everything to work harder. If you like your GUI looking worse and running slower .. feel free to run at 4K.
