I have my Tronsmart Ara X5 connected directly to my old Olevia 1080P TV, and it plays everything flawlessly with direct play.  It is an Intel  Cherry Trail Z8300, running the current Windows 10 with the April 2018 update.  Live TV, 720p, 1080i and 480p all Direct Play with NO dropped frames.  Even my BlueRay rips, with different video codecs, including VC-1, play perfectly.  Of course, the Cherry Trail, does NOT support HD audio.

 

BUTT, when I take this box to my main entertainment system, everything turns to crap.  The video, plays in slow motion and skips 9 out of 10 frames.  I have tried all settings that are available, but not luck.  I connect this box to my 4K Denon AVR, and that connects to my Samsung 4k TV.

 

This tells me that the box is capable of playing all the codecs that I feed it, so why does it go to crap by connecting a 4k system, I can't understand it.

Will a log help??  I connected my Ara X5 directly to my Samsung 4k TV and it is horrible, lots and lots of dropped frames.  Connected  to a 1080p TV and it plays perfectly.

 

I even changed the settings under Windows to 1080p but still did not help.....  I am baffled 

 

Do you think creating an MPV log help in this sitation???

 

thanks.

You've got the refresh rate set differently in each of those. Set your refresh rate to 60Hz for both TVs, in your GPU settings. And I recommend 60Hz, not 59Hz.

I don't understand?  Are you referring to the Fps on each video???

In one of those, you're watching Live TV. And your TV/GPU is set to 59.94Hz

In the other, your tv is set to 29.97Hz. I'm willing to bet that movie is 23.97Hz.

Click on Advanced Display Settings, and look at the refresh rate. That should be at 60Hz
