I read in a news, that with Kodi19 and LE10 it will be possibel to get HDR....
its an difficult topic, L10/K19 supports HDR but just at some platforms
for Generic you need a "testbuild", this is still work in progress
- Kodi 19 (dcec5f4) + HDR patches from lrusak + AV1 VAAPI HW decoding for TGL/RKL
- Linux 5.14-rc2
- Mesa 21.2.0-rc2
- FFmpeg 4.4 (de1132a) + patches from xbmc/ffmpeg + AV1 fixes.
Test if it fixed crashes for you.
Does LE upscale the video stream to 4K ?
Kodi upscales to whatever resolution you setuped (you should not go over 1920x1080).
Then at a 4k TV the TV upscales your 1920x1080 to 4k.
If the upscale looks horrible have a play with the scaler settings at the playback menu. Usually it is not that bad.
Is it possible to get a Video Pass Through
