Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Yeah, if I could go back in time I would tell myself to stop the quest for Dolby Vision greatness and do something else instead. It has been expensive, time-consuming, and ultimately pretty damn frustrating. I enjoy all the nice and like-minded people around here, but I should have just been content...

This Ugoos thing was too good to be true.
Haha! I still have my Oppo 203 and its NAS capabilities to fall back on. These are obviously first world problems. I'm just so tired of keeping separate processes and libraries. I want the whole gang under one roof!

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I'm definitely on the fence about returning mine at this point as I'm not really confident in any improvements. I got my AM6+ through a marketplace seller on Walmart.com. The return policy was standard for a large company, but I was mistaken in thinking it was shipped from the U.S. I learned in the...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Do cheap boxes with this SoC even exist or is this a direct incrimination of the developments with the Minix?

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Watched a new 1917 mkv in its entirety with Kodi - no fast forwarding or pausing. The Ugoos glitched a couple times at like the 35m mark and then around 80m. It was similar to what it does at the start and eventually fixes itself. Not sure how to convey issues like these to Ugoos support. We are us...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Is it worth moving the Ugoos/Minix player discussion to another forum? Not sure if people are aggrieved about it or not....

Anyways, I forgot I had a wireless G20 remote lying around. Big improvement over the IR remote that came with the AM6+. Power button just had to be remapped to sleep.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Back at the Ugoos grind instead of working on a Friday lol. I seem to have figured out the issue with transcoding DTS, so that's good news for me at least. I made an 1.16.3 MKV of Power Rangers a bit ago and have been playing around with it in the latest Plex Beta and Fandango's Kodi. I can definite...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

This Ugoos, man :cry: You can add DTS transcoding to the list of things it cannot do properly. Wish I could just do full passthrough, but I have the Sonos Arc 5.1 set and need transcoding capabilities as it can't receive DTS. It works great on the Shield for the most part (Kodi and Plex). When testi...

Yeah, it's not exactly a friendly plug & play device. Since yesterday I still haven't figured out how to exactly set up NFS client in Android to work. Highly irritating. Please let me know if you succeed :lol: The "Remote Control Buttons" app is worthless, leaving the remote itself re...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

JFC rebooting several times did nothing, but of course physically unplugging the power and plugging it back in made the ethernet work. This device is going to be a rollercoast ride isn't it? :lol: EDIT: LMAO that also fixed my issue with the OTA firmware not working. I ran it again with no changes a...
