video can't play on living room tv but can on others

Unread postby odroid alc » Mon Aug 13, 2018 7:06 am

Hi

I have ubuntu-mate on odroid xu4. I use kodi.
I have a 1080p tv and some video's can't play on it.(scips frames, frezz's and digital scrambeling)
Every other monitor that works with odroid play's the video.

one of the videos is x264 mkv.

mkv files are a box of trick`s in retrospect...they can contain just about any format of file types.
do a web search "what can an mkv file contain" or file formats..etc..etc..

may well be that the resolution of the particular file ..inside the box is not supported by the particular screen ....

can you tell me make and model of the screen in question...????

EDIT your screen may only support 1080 i...it`s prolly trying to up-scale the image/file format to 1080 ...i`d say this is more to the point....

it supports 1080p according to specs, so that should be fine.
Are the other Monitors and ODROIDs using the same image or are they using a different image?
Probably different version such as one is using Ubuntu 16.04 the other 18.04.?

No. I used the same odroid and img to test and see.

Odd thaing is wen I tryed swoping out the sd cards. One being OMV and the other being ubuntu-mate. The omv wuld not boot on odroid(2) but the odroid I origenaly instaled on does.

I can try and see if vlc plays it and/or try diferant img's. I realy like the kodi with scraper's thow.

ok this may shed some light on things...i`ll tell you what manufactures did not want you to know about early model set`s..

they were sold as 1080p sets..this fact is sort of true in some respects..

but were in fact all up-scaling to 1080..even though all spec`s sheet`s claimed true 1080p..

a couple of things you can do to test this is knock your resolution back to 720p you`ll prolly find it will play ok..

how well adjust the boot file..or adjust your program settings..or if possible adjust the settings in yor t.v. set..

do a web search for a bios upgrade for the set ..this may help..??? dunno…
many issues here that it could be but it may be the odroid it`s self...dunno...
..................................................................................................................................................................................
this is stated about a 37 inch i cannot find a 39 deep specs as yet but it could be in here some where....


HDMI v1.3, ATSC/Clear QAM Tuner, Noise Redu


from what i am reading it seems your set is quite advanced features,,but yet lack`s hdmi complacency only 1.3



ok so your set is native 120 z this may be the reason.it may not be adjusting to it`s given input refresh rate. from the odroid..the set is quite old .i gather that for a set around the 2K era

if you have a c-2 it may pay to try it with that..
also it states hdmi type A..this may also be an issue...as it was the first ulta hd type input type..i`d say it`s 2.0..type or higher..i cannot find the type only hdmi-A...
if it is capable of ultra hd..
but nether-less..i`d say now if the speds are true it`s having refresh rates issues....
it may even be a fault int the processor board it`s self not auto adjusting to the supplied refresh rate ???
web search it for your self..if the specs you can understand them that is..

Hmm...interesting well when it comes to kodi i think you should ask the C-2 guys..i never ran kodi or any media program`s like those ..as for your screen how old is it..??? if

were only aloud too steam down here sucks as often video`s and tune`s stuff goes of line or get`s marked off.

ive run stuff like netflix and alike but on my p-c never got them to run on an odroid...
