Kodi with ATSC3.0 AC-4 Audio/HEVC Support

I've just completed a successful build of Kodi that supports ATSC3.0/HEVC/AC-4 audio. This is a 64-bit Windows build (Kodi 20 alpha from github) that has been tested on Windows 10 & 11 and with the latest version of NextPVR for the back-end. It works successfully with the ATSC3/HEVC/AC-4 broadca...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

The latest version of of NextPVR was quite simple to configure, just time consuming to do the channel scan and update the EPG. The trick is to use HDHR mode and not the ATSC mode since no scan is required and to have a Schedules Direct account for the EPG data, I'd suggest the trial to start. Once ...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

I ran Kodi for a while and it is great but it takes a lot more tinkering and computer knowledge to get running right with all of my drives that I just went with Plex. If you want a open source setup that can do or play anything if you want to go to the trouble of setting it up. If you want pretty s...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

I've downloaded and tested the Android NextPVR client APK provided by emveepee on a Beelink GT King Pro TV box and HEVC/AC-4 works perfectly. It also works perfectly on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S7+. Great work!

Re: AC-4 Audio?

For all interested, I tried the NextPVR client that emveepee has mentioned in this thread. The audio works perfectly. For review, using HDHR backend and android TV client, I get a DD 5.1 container with only L&R channel audio. With his app, I get DD+ 5.1 with all channels working. I would really...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

Ive read through this entire thread. But I don't see a current list of TVs, or devices (that can successfully decode ATSC 3.0 audio) that was suggested early on in the thread. Specifically I like to know about ipad, iphone, fire stick (eg firestick 4k), and Sony A80j 4k tv. The Sony A80J, and A90j,...

Re: AC-4 Audio?

For folks who want something a bit more light weight than QMPlay2, you can try this player. It's barebones and plays local files and URL streams (with HEVC/AC-4 audio support of course). This is another 64-bit Windows app and is based on the the player found here: https://github.com/yundiantech/Vide...

QMPLAY2 supports playback of local files as well as URL streams such as those from your HDHomeRun 4k tuners. It also has an equalizer, ...
