Switch refresh rates was never a problem once we added that ability. It's switching to the proper refresh rate at is the issue. The fireOS thinks it is 23.97 but the kernel thinks it is something else.
But my TV showed 24Hz - does that mean it worked or are there playback issues because the kernel may think it's something else?
(not near the setup to try it again)
As I mentioned, it will switch to 24Hz but the kernel vsync timing is not correct.
Got it. I thought it would not even switch because of this. I will watch logcat and report back next time I feel like playing with it.

Hehe... I confirm the 24p bug is still there in FTV1.
Spent some hours trying to find out why vsync was crazy before assuming it was a FW issue ;)
logcat still shows the vsync timeout ?
Didn't saw that, but I wasn't looking for such an issue, so probably just didn't notice...

davilla did some investigation and he can confirm that at least the Fire TV 1st gen refuses to pass MULTI CH PCM (more than 2.0 channels that is) over HDMI to the AVR. The logs show that the audio sink gets set up for 6 channels for example but only 2 channels make it to the AVR, the rest are lost.

It's still not fixed, I can confirm logcat keeps spewing:

Code: Select all

I/Kernel  (  796): <3>[96471.967864] timeout for VSYNC ret=0
