OffLoad could you try installing raspbian on an sdcard, and use the display configuration tool to switch to 4kp30.
Does that have the same problem? If so can you also try with hdmi connected to other hdmi port
(this doesn't work with kodi, but should with raspbian).
Does 4kp24 work?
I'm suspecting that the cable is borderline (I know it has worked on another device, but it could be just on the edge of being usable at 4kp30).
But to begin with see if we can rule out a kodi/LE issue.
The fix was done long ago, but is stuck in a PR and hasn't made it into an official build:
That sounds like 1366x768 doesn't work on raspbian (the scrambled display should be showing a dialog saying "do you want to keep this resolution" which is timing out and putting you back to the old resolution)
Can you confirm that it still fails with latest firmware (using rpi-update on raspbian).
Assuming it does then this is a firmware issue rather than a kodi issue and reporting it here would be best:
Can you choose 1366x768 from raspbian? Does it work?
state 0xa [HDMI CEA (16) RGB lim 16:9], 1920x1080 @ 60Hz, progressive
Okay so that is using a more standard resolution so not surprising that worked.
Was that the default resolution when you booted raspbian or did you change it yourself?
I've poked the hdmi experts for advice. Can you report output of "tvservice -s" when using raspbian (and display is working)?
I wonder how the Pi 4 will behave with enclosures such as these that are basically one large heat sink for all chips.Would make it easy to carry around also. I refuse to rely on active cooling. A Pi has to be completely silent to begin with, and I travel quite a lot so the less parts and wires that can break the better.
I'd expect that to work well assuming it is a large piece of aluminium with good thermal connection to SoC.
Flirc cases have historically worked very well using the same principles.
I'm also expecting the new Pi4 version of Flirc case to work well when I get to try one.
Looks like we are sending the same signal in the working and non working case.
You can make absolutely sure of this by booting directly connected to TV (which works),
and then uplugging hdmi cable to go through amp (while kodi is running). Do you get a display?
Connect back to TV to confirm signal is still being sent).
If you see picture on TV before and after and no picture when using amp, I'd say you have some faulty
hardware outside of Pi. Check all cables. Try different cables. Try different sockets on amp and TV.
Try a different amp if available to try to narrow it down.
Can you ssh into the pi when display is working (direct connection to TV) and when not working (going through amp)
and report output of "tvservice -s"
I wonder if the amp is advertising support for 4kp30 which the TV can't handle.
Yes Pi3 builds support 3D
If you provide a link to the problematic file I can take a look.
3D is not supported yet on the Pi4.
It will come but it's not the highest priority.
Hi I didn't enabled this option in config.txt and I was able to play 4k HEVC movie anyway. Is that possible? Now i tried enable this option and only difference is, that I can put Kodi interface to 4k 60fps mode, previously I could use just 4k 30fps.
enable_4k=1 adds support for 4kp60 HDMI output (which requires higher clocks and voltage). 4kp30 (and lower) doesn't require this setting.
You can play 4k HEVC videos with or without this option (most video content is 4kp24).
Quick one, when on the menus moving about, there seems to be alot of screen tearing, is this just down to it being early days? Im displaying on a Samsung NU7020 at 3840 x 2160 and just wondered what it was.
Yes tearing is a known issue. It is significantly reduced with the testing firmware (that fixes the stutter with some video files).
It's a software issue - it will be fixed in a later update.
I had the same issue. For me it helps to use the other HDMI port. I do not know if its a hardware or software related problem.
Yes - use HDMI0 - it is more capable (larger fifos means it can be run with lower clocks).
HDMI1 is largely untested with kodi.
Issues: I can select resolutions of 4096x2160p @ 30, 29.97, 25, 23.98 and 3840x2160p @ 30, 29.97, 25, 23.98 --- but not at 60fps
Also the same content that used to be 4K HDR under the Rock64 build won't activate HDR on the RPI4.
Add hdmi_enable_4k=1 to config.txt and you should see the 4kp60 modes.
(4kp60 requires higher clock frequencies and scrambling so isn't enabled by default).
HDR isn't currently supported but should come soon.
The Kodi Plex Add-On have a setting to allow HEVC, and hardware acceleration of it works in Kodi on my Windows laptop, so I wonder if the RPi4 will be able to do that as well?
Does anyone of you who owns an RPi4 and use the 9.2 Alpha also use Plex
I don't use Plex, but HEVC decode should be fine on a Pi4.
