Latest July firmware patch Stability testing (MAJOR UPDATE) 1080p tests added !

 

 

Right I think that stability has not improved one iota, though gratefully and admittedly there have been a host of other fixes,

 

Anyway dont let me influence you, i have undertaken some tests for you to judge yourselves.

 

NORMAL APP 4K NO HDR BUT H265 Stability ON

(STABILITY LOOKS BETTER)  you decide though.

 

CINEMA PRO HDR ON H.265 Stability ON 4K NO LUT and 24 FPS

CINEMA PRO HDR ON H.265 Stability ON 4K NO LUT and 30 FPS

(still being processed by youtube, so waiting for video quality to improve)

 

What do you all think, you decide?

OK. I have found out the stability issues affect even 1080p, but only when HDR is on!

 

WHen HDR is off, all is OK.

Now judging by my tests we have a new spanner in the works. 

Not only do we have a problem with stability in 4k but there is an issue in 1080p.also.

 

If I enable HDR in 1080p then the video is LESS stable than 1080p with HDR OFF. 

 

So to sum up work needs to be undertaken on 1080p HDR stabilisation. 

 

All is fine on regular 1080p
