[NOT FIXED] FireTV jerky stuttering 24p playback on new Fire OS

Post by DMC_12 » 18 Apr 2017, 21:22

Update: Problem still persists. It just tricks CodecInfo. I dont know...
tested with this:https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwxFVk ... d2VEk/view
gets choppy after a while

Hey guys,

I hope this will be completely fixed in the new MrMC version. But until then you might want this workaround.
(This was very frustrating for me, davilla knows. And I am happy as shit , while typing this right now)

1.Go to Homescreen of your FireTV.
2.On the new FireOS hold the Rewind Button (◄◄) and Up Button (on the circle) on your remote. Keep them pressed until the screen goes black. You can now release the buttons.
What you see now is the hidden Resolution Cycle Menu of the FireTV.
3.Wait until it shows 1080p 24hz.
4.Then click ok. Your sceen is now at 1080p 24hz.

Now launch up MrMC and play a movie. I have no more dropped frames according to CodecInput Diagnosis And my eyes can confirm it too :)

Note: Your FireTV UI will act slow, since you are on 24hz. You can change back to 60hz in the official Settings Menu, after you are finished watching your movie. However to get the hidden 24hz option you have to do the button combination again.

also thx to aftvnews.com http://www.aftvnews.com/fire-os-5-adds- ... -fire-tv/ You can see pictures there

5.2.4.1 update for FireTV1. 24Hz display is messed up, both for Apps that can switch and via the hidden FireOS setting.

When switched, logcat is spewed with

I/Kernel ( 781): <3>[ 1852.437866] timeout for VSYNC ret=0

Someone forgot to let the kernel know the new refresh rate.

Can anybody answer this please?

Is 24p fixed in new FW? Im thinking about buying FTV Stick2(and MrMC) and 24p is a must for me.

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi,

I think this was fixed quite some time ago with a new build of 5.2.4.1 (573210720). See below article , comments section mentions it briefly. I don't own any of the fire tv sticks but I no longer see the issue on the fire tv 2 boxes.
