Around a month ago it looks like we resolved the HDR flickering issue, but some banding was visible. We’ve been making some progress thanks to extensive testing, but this still required manual intervention to get this to work properly. This should now no longer be the case.
I’d appreciate it if you could test this and provide feedback before we potentially release this as an update to other users. To test this update:
- Login via the command line
- Edit the file
- Add the following line:
deb http://apt.osmc.tv stretch-devel main
- Run the following commands to update:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && reboot
- Your system should have have received the update.
Please see if the issue is resolved.
I also recommend you edit
/etc/apt/sources.list again and remove the line that you added after updating. This will return you to the normal update channel.
With any luck, HDR playback no longer exhibits flickering or banding. We need to make sure this doesn’t cause problems for situations where a user is not playing HDR content.
