Suggested Player for Kodi & CV

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

i'm running Cinemavision on a Cheap player from China (Mecool M8s Pro+). The Kodi app crashes often

during playing a CinemaVision Intro.

 

Do you think it depend on the Mecool player? would you sugest an other player e.g. Nvidia shield?

 

Many thanks

 I tried a lot of other options and in my setup they all seemed to have issues in some area.  The shield has been rock solid for me since the day I installed it.   I highly recommend it.

I don't have a Shield but a quick online search indicates that it should.  Which Shield are you using and what is the firmware revision?

Yes, the Shield TV does support Atmos. You have to enable Passthrough/Bitstreaming on it as well as in Kodi.

On the Sield TV, it is Settings > Display & Sound > Advanced > Fixed Volume

Hi together

 

Many thanks. I’m not able to set up the Shield TV to playing Atmos. Neither with Kodi either with Plex.

With a cheap media player from China Atmos was running.

 

In Kodi I have put the settings in «HDMI Passtrough». In the Shield TV I don’t have any possibility to

set «HDMI Passtrough» or «Bitstreaming”. I tried to set "Settings > Display & Sound > Advanced > Fixed Volume"

but it doesn't help. With "fixed Volume" or without the AVR is allways displaying "Dolby True HD" insteas of "Atmos".

 

I also tried to set up the Shield in the "factory Setting" and different HDMI cable.

 

I’ have the Shield 2017 with newest update 6.3

Hmmm, ok. My Yamaha receiver just says TrueHD/Atmos, but in the infromation screen, it lights up the channels being sent and it lights up the height channels in addition to all the normal surround channels when it is Atmos.

Hi

Many thanks, it was a mistake. I had the wrong Speaker Setup. I also changed my AVR and I had the wrong Speaker Setup. Now its showing Atmos

on the Display.
