HDR - Will it ever be supported?

  • I am fully aware that we are currently limited in the HDR content we can view, with only a few demos being available.


    However, I am wondering if HDR would be possible with LibreElec for the s905x at some point in the future, or is this something that simply won't happen for the device.

  • From what I have understood from the reports of other people, playback of hevc main10 hdr content works with libreelec on S905X. It is not supported, as the main developer has no way to test hdr playback. So if it stops working in the future due to some kernel or kodi change, he has no way to test fixes.

    Wetek Hub: LibreElec 8.2.3.1 (Philips 42PFL8404)
    MK808B+: LibreElec 7.0.2.7 (Samsung UE55H6270)
    OTT MXQ Pro 4k (S905): LibreElec 7.0.3.12k (Denon X1200W, 7.1, LG PF1500G)
    AKASO HM8 (S905X): CoreElec 9.0 dev build, Acer Revo 3610: Milhouse test

  • Thanks guys, you have just given me a massive headache in terms of what device to use as my media center ;)


    Might be time to retire my Shield.
