First off I just started using LibreELEC and absolutely love it. I'm using it to run my media center and it is simply phenomenal!
I have a 4K / UHD TV with HDMI 2.0(a). I'd like to run LibreELEC at 2160p / 60hz, which for that bandwidth I need full speed HDMI 2.0. I'm having problems finding a hardware solution that can help me do this.
So far I have tried:
1 - Skull Canyon NUC (appears Intel's drivers aren't fully supported in chipset yet in kernel?). Sort of works, but I cannot get audio pass through / bit stream over hdmi which is important to me. I can get 2160p / 60hz, but if I set audio to pass through LibreELEC crashes / blackscreens).
2- Gigabyte Brix unit similar to Skull Canyon NUC (same results).
3 - Sandy bridge based PC with NVIDIA 1050 for HDMI 2.0. Get cannot start xorg server error. Is this because the kernal is not yet supporting the new 1050?
Before I return the 1050 and try an older NVIDIA 2.0 card like a 900 series or 1060 (which I hope are supported because they've been around a while), I think I'm best asking. Is there any proven hardware solution out there where I can get the latest build of LibreELEC/Krypton running on HDMI 2.0 at full res with 60hz and able to bitstream audio over HDMI? I assume this can currently only be done on NVIDIA/AMD so far and am hoping there's a card that's fully supported. Any other solutions greatly appreciated if known.
I found out most of the above through trial and error and internet / forum searches. I'm not a smart software person so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
