Q5 4K3D 23.976 test firmware.
« on: April 24, 2015, 07:09:02 AM »
As well as official firmware 1.0.8, which we will be posting this morning, we have a test firmware for Q5 that offers proper 23.976fps support.

If you don't understand what that means then this firmware is not for you! It's a deeply confusing 'bug' that exists in most video playback devices and nearly all Android boxes where video encoded at 23.976fps rather than 24fps (as some is) results in a single missed frame every 41 seconds. Most people never notice it.

HiMedia don't want us posting the 23.976 firmware publically, but if you're interested in testing it then reply and we'll send you a download link by email.

PLEASE DON'T SHARE THE FILE OR LINK. IF IT DOES GET LEAKED IT WILL MEAN THAT FUTURE TEST FIRMWARES WILL NOT BE MADE AVAILABLE.

That's 7 people in total. I'm going to allow 1 more and then that's enough for now.

We'll email you the link.

OK. All the above are in the test group.

We'll send emails (to forum email address) with a link to the test firmware before end today.

Can be enable debug log or debug info into himediaplayer? it's not easy to see drop frame/ skip frame or stutter.

No debug in this firmware, although I will mention it to HiMedia on Monday.

We have 8 people testing the firmware. Because the 23.976 problem is very difficult to spot the hope is that by having multiple testers who know what they're looking for we will get decent information.

Emails have just been sent to the tester group with the firmware link.

Thanks, got it. Just to be sure, we should install this via paperclip/restore/power method right? And, can we go from 1.0.7 directly to this, or should 1.0.8 be installed first?
