Use CoreELEC and Retro Emulation Kodi Addon.
I don't understand why does balbes150 delete comments, that indicate bugs (no deinterlacing, sluggish gui, incorrect 4K HDR playback, wrong aspect ratio, etc).
Latest nightlies should work better regarding that due to higher mali clock frequency.
I tried the latest nightly, but unforunately the GUI fluidity is far from the Amlogic S905X.
And I have an another question, the deinterlacing when will it be in testable state?
The Kodi user interface is not smooth on H6, similar to RK3328. Why?
I have an Amlogic S905X and S912 too and the UI is very smooth with CoreELEC on both devices.
New test image with working ethernet: libreelec-h6.arm-9.80-devel-20190711234608-e076031-tanix-tx6.img.gz
- ethernet doesn't work after soft reboot (works after power cycle)
- CEC works if you turn off and back on TV when box is connected
- eMMC doesn't work for some reason
- no wifi
- no IR (patches exist)
Thanks, I tried on my TX6 Mini and there are HDMI handshake problem with my Samsung T24D391 Monitor TV. See this video:[link]
Actually, I have just noticed the same darker picture. In my case, I also have an Amlogic S905X box, and video playback (using same TV brightness, colour, contrast settings and HDMI port etc) is darker with Tanix TX6 (this also uses H6 SoC).
It's most noticeable in dark scenes - the S905X retains the details but the Tanix TX6 does not. If needed, I can also capture images to show the differences.
Use limited output.
The mainline kernel is support for outputting correct MaxFALL/MaxCLL HDR metadata and HDR10+?
I have a Z28 RK3328 box with the latest nightly and I have an S912 box too with CoreELEC. I see, the SD upscaling is the same, bad quality on both. I have a RTD1295 box too (Zidoo X9S), and the SD upscaling quality is superior.
What about the RK3399? Same as the RK3328? I read, the RK3399 have a Bicubic polynomial interpolation with a four-tap horizontal kernel and a two-tap vertical kernel upscaling algorithm. Can LibreELEC use this feature?
Who can record the video work of the interface KODI (latest LE 9) on ROCK64 by video camera 60 frames per second?
I want to see how smooth the interface is compared to amlogic s905.
At Odroid C2, unfortunately, there is no smoothness. The only skin where there is smoothness is confluence.
I was surprised by the smoothness the interface kodi on RK3288 (Asus tinker board). You can see in video 1080p60 resolution:
I have both RK3328 and S905X. The S905X with CoreELEC is more smoother than the RK3328 with LibreELEC. Same Estuary skin.
Thanks for your test, I noticed all of the MBAFF interlaced videos are wrong (25i, 29.97i too).
I see the last nightly was 04.11.2018
But there were Kwiboo changes merged on 04.11.2018, so I'll try to make a new image tomorrow.
Those changes are already in the 29.10.2018 image, just the general LE changes from 3-10 Nov will then be new.
Can you make a new test image for Z28 too? Thanks!
When will available a new test version with the latest Kwiboo patches? The last nightly is 03.11.
What about the MBAFF deinterlacing?
Rockchip currently can output:
1. RGB Full Range (YUV video is clipped and scaled from 16-235 to 0-254). Set TV to Full Range - WtW & BtW clipped, Single video scaling.
2. YCbCr 4:2:2/4:4:4 Limited Range (RGB gui is scaled from 0-254 to 16-235). Set TV to Limited Range - WtW & BtB preserved*, Zero video scaling.
Recommended and default settings:
- Use limited colour range (16-235) should be set to False
- System -> HDMI Output Format should be set to RGB
- Player -> HDMI Output Format should be set to YCbCr
- TV should be set to Full Range when RGB is used and Limited Range when YCbCr is used
*In current build the Video Output Processor is configured to clip YUV WtW & BtW values before it is sent out over HDMI.
Thank you, I will try!
For interlaced videos:
I discovered, only MBAFF videos are wrong (59.94i and 50i too). I uploaded an 50i sample, the Amlogic plays at 50Hz with proper deinterlacing, the Rockchip plays at 25Hz without deinterlacing: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1s-9nsjh-ljrheb_xgh_l0ufhegyufxrr
