  • I just bought a Nuc6cayh, 8GB of ram & an SSD.


    Installed LE 8.0 this afternoon, this evening wife and I have just finished watching a 1080p 60hz movie encoded in 10bit x265 with 5.1 surround sound.


    She has no idea that I've upgraded the media pc, everything worked flawlessly.

    I have NUC6CAYS; out of interest did you install LE on the SSD, a USB stick? Reason I ask is that could not get LE to finish bootup when installed to USB..

    I set the bios option to linux > Boot priority to usb first, ssd second > The installer was on a usb > The installation is on an SSD.

  • Just as an update, I finally updated my system to Fritsch's 8.0.0.0 Generic build with HEVC 10 bit support.


    My J3355B handles 10 bit HEVC flawlessly.


    I initially thought that it was stuttering on jellyfish-400-mbps-4k-uhd-hevc-10bit.mkv, but then i realised that the file was just buffering because it's a 1.4GB file that last a few seconds. So I paused for a second to let the cache fill up, let it play and it was flawless. CPU averaged about 20%.


    That's very impressive from a passively cooled $55 SoC that I threw into a ten year old desktop chassis & PSU with a seven year old laptops RAM.


  • Hi, That's great to hear; however my nuc6cays (J3455) seems to be running the same clip in software (indeed all four cores are maxed out, and stutters a great deal). Can confirm whether you are using the "standard" build or one of the nightlies/something someone else have compiled? I've also applied the latest firmwares using a windows image.


    Thanks in advance!

    I'm using the latest Fritsch Frueberger build.

    So this will provide 10 bit HEVC support through version 8.0.2?

  • yes i added needed changes/patches but official HEVC10 support will come at LE9 with kodi18
    Both my build from Index of / are with HEVC support and optimalized for intel and i will update from time to time.
