Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Sorry to be "that guy", but is there a method to convert a DV .mp4 file to a DV .mkv file which plays on the shield 2019 hidden somewhere? Came across something interesting to try out :P On the first post of the Makemkv 1.5.3 thread Mike gives a ffmpeg command line to convert back to MKV then run i...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

That's anyone's guess. I've never been able to get the beta of plex on my SHIELD so I'm probably going to have to wait, as well. There's an apk in the link. I just got it from play store, and it works IF i set refresh rate manually to 23/24fps (LG E6). Dod you changed the refresh rate from plex set...

Haha. I love it. Totally get the response. I'll have to go fishing if no one wants to help haha. I don't torrent though.
Or you could read the thread. All the info you need is there. If that is too complicated, i suggest you wait until things are on a simple enough level.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

I'm tempted to order a Nvidia Shield which would arrive on Tuesday but I'm worried about the colour issue. I would only be ordering it for Dolby Vision films and if the colour issue isn't fixed, the device would be useless to me. Are there any other Dolby Vision devices on the horizon? Color issue ...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

If you mounted the drive on your shield in settings - storage, it should just show up as a drive in Kodi It does not. I can see all my shares in "TV file manager app", but not in kodi's file manager or in any combination of stuff in "add source" in the attachments. :/ *edit* Also, MrMC sees the mou...

Map the share on the Shield (not Kodi), or copy a file to the local storage to test it first.
May be a stupid question, but how do you make kodi find the share, once mapped by the shield? I've been trying to figure this out for ages, and finally gave up and just copied files to my usb hdd.

Shield owners might want to take a look at this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/fo ... ta-signup/

Not allowed to say what it contains though ;) :D 8)

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Yusecope has mentioned in the past that he thinks when the Shield decoder encounters an unsupported profile (7 in this case), it will look at the raw video stream and fallback to a similar supported profile for playback. From testing with TS files in the past, the same video stream when stored as e...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

1.15.2 is out :D But no mention of DV specifically. However this was not mentioned in .1 either... Fingers crossed "Muxer updated to the latest matroska specification" is the gold we've been waiting for :D Edit: Made a file and, as expected, no matter which player i used on my Shield it plays back i...
