Intel NUC, kodi on 4K is limited to 30FPS

  • Hey, I am running LibreELEC on a intel nuc that is capable of outputing 4K at 60FPS with a TV that is capable of showing 4K 60FPS. both units have hdmi 2 or 2.1 ports. On 4K I cant get higher FPS than 30. is there a limit on the linux drivers or in kodi? Thanks

  • Wait... Intel made more than one NUC ?!?

    Providing a kodi.log file would make things much easier. :)

    Not a debug log.

  • I am having the same issue on a new Vizio M65-E0 tv. I am curious, what tv are you using. I see Sony in the log but not the model number.

  • Your log is reporting [email protected] as the maximum:

    1. INFO: ID:0x48 Name:1920x1080 Refresh:60.000000 Width:1920 Height:1080

    For a recent NUC I would recommend a community build with the latest and greatest kernel / display driver stack. Try mine or Milhouse's.

  • they both have a hdmi 2.0 port. even tho one of the sites stated only 1.4 for my TV but it seems that a firmware upgrade enables 2.0 on older models. I do have a updated system. but will keep looking for bugs if I find something wrong with the setup. TV and the NUC only have hdmi. no display port :/

  • Try adding the modeline manually via xrandr.. it wouldn't be the first time the Intel driver had a bug!

  • I have been looking around for good instructions on using xrandr but do not find anything that explains it good enough for me to really give it a try. Do you have any example by any chance.

  • Thank you very much for your help. Used the code but with DP1 instead of HDMI1, no errors but did not give me the 60hz refresh rate. I do have the same nuc as BoKKER. I also installed windows today to make sure I was not crazy and to make sure bios and firmware were up to date and was able to get 3840X2160 @60. I included a pic below.

    I have also attached a link to my log. NSZY

    Also here is the xrandr command I tried

    LibreELECnuc:~ # xrandr --output DP1 --mode 3840x2160 --rate 60.00

    LibreELECnuc:~ # xrandr

    Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 3840 x 2160, maximum 32767 x 32767

    DP1 connected primary 3840x2160+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 1430mm x 800mm

  • I did install windows today too to check that there it works. too bad I did not see your post. It would have saved me a few hours. I added 60 fps 4K with xrandr but I always end up with the

    xrandr: configure crtc 0 failed

    error. I tried to tweak it but I did not manage to get it work.

  • I did not get any errors when I ran the xrandr command from above, but no changes either. Did you change HDMI1 to DP1 from the example above from Chewitt?
