Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

My understanding was that with the Pi 4, you should never see the thermometer icon because the Pi would actively manage the CPU frequency to keep the temperature out of the danger zone. If that's wrong, I suppose I wasn't seeing thermal throttling? That is wrong. No throttling will occur below 80'C...

Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

Some have mentioned that using a script to switch from an X server to a vterm before running Kodi makes it slow. However, I'm using this package on a minimal Raspbian installation with no GUI, and I'm still experiencing extreme slowness and laggy inputs in anything involving the Kodi GUI. Once a vi...

Re: Kodi 18.3 Leia for Raspberry Pi 4

Kodi use 30-50% idle for one CPU core on main window GUI. While playing video it is okay = no extra % on top of the normal video playback load. I tried with different skins and Estuary has little bit lower CPU ~30% with added <smartredraw>true< to advancedsettings.xml CPU lowers to 4-19% but this s...

Re: Raspberry Pi 4 Thread - general discussion

May I ask whether RPI supports things such as 10 bit video decoding, Dolby Vision and Atmos? Thx. HEVC hardware decode supports 4kp60, 10-bit. Audio output is pretty much unchanged, but the HDMI audio channels now support 8x192kHz bitrates. Thank you for confirming this! I agree with what someone e...
