The builds of 30.Pre.1047.gaea1635b95 for both el7 and F28 are installed
and working on FE/BE boxes, and
mythfrontend-20181124-arm-v30-Pre-983-gca71c59e61a is working well in
the firestick 4K with the F28 backend, using software decoding for both
SD and HD recordings from UK DVB-T/T2 and driving a 1920*1080 TV,
apparently at 1080p 60 Hz.
It would be interesting to know what causes the problem with hardware
decoding, and the reported loads on the 4 cpus are higher than I would
like, but what I have at present seems excellent. Thank you.
Perhaps I should add that it's not quite 'practically perfect', although
this particular defect is unrelated to the MythTV frontend.
I just watched an HD recording via uPnP and VLC-for-Android, and panning
shots were noticeably jerky, but not torn. This was on my daughter's
TV, on which that mode is at present the only one available, from a
twonky uPnP server in NAS. An smb option is visible too, but I'm
currently having difficulty getting VLC to accept that connection; it
works on my system.
Amazon Movies Prime and other mainstream sources are on offer and may
work better. I haven't seen much of them.
