Experiences Odroid XU4 with DVB-T2?

Post by marco.hahn » Tue Sep 26, 2017 6:39 pm

I am considering an Odroid XU4 with Ubuntu for a MythTV DVB-T2 (HEVC, 1080p, in Germany) TV system. I need to connect a TechnoTrend TVStick CT2-4400, which requires kernel 3.16 or newer (thus the Ubuntu image with a 4.x kernel).

However, https://wiki.odroid.com/odroid-xu4/os_i ... 9/20170824 lists "Kodi and Gsteamer playback is sluggish when we play 1080p video clips. Slow GLsink rendering seems to be a root cause even MFC HW decoder works fine." as an open issue.

Has anyone experience with XU4 and Ubuntu and watching German DVB-T2? When will the above-mentioned issue be addressed?

I found out that my mobile phone surprisingly has the same Exynos chip and fails to decode DVB-T2 signals properly. Case closed.
