Thanks for the replys. And yes I think I will be getting an Egreat. I just got the TV so I'm going to do a bit more research as I may want the new A11. I'm hoping for some confirmation on the Dolby Vision as well. Dave

Poster wall

Hi Olivierqc,

Thanks for your video. I hope you can walk us thru how to set the Movie wall function properly, as I only get 1/3 of the titles done from my HDD. Also, how to delete the wrong posters.

Appreciate your help in advance.

P.S. I did read it elsewhere that the latest firmware is very buggy n even the dealer here told us not to update it yet n that's why I am still on '1.2.0.2' version. Any comment ????????

I turn off the imprex processing engine V2



and i choose Display mode : Sport



the picture with Egreat Tv and Vidon xbmc is free of video noise it allows me to increase the sharpness contrary to Zidoo which has a lot of video noise after making a comparative.

I used the following TV Sony settings :

Nettete: 60/ Reality Creation: 35

I also change the contrast and color on my TV.

The settings fit with my tastes.

And regarding the image quality, how does the HiSilicon Hi3798C V200 compares with the Sigma SMP8758 ?

Hello ac388,

yes me too, since 2 days it no longer finds posters,
I asked the team egreat and i hope to get an answer

with the V1.2.1.5 beta firmware and the post 2.0, we can delete the wrong posters one by one, but I've never done, I will look tonight.

the new stable firmware will be available tomorrow.

see you

Hello all,


I have never had dune or Popcorn, but i made a comparison with my zidoo x9s, which has excellent reviews.

And after some adjustments with the parameters of my tv (sharpness and reality creation) the egreat has a PQ comparable to the zidoo.

see you

Hello All,

I made a comparison between versions 1080p and 2160p.

We see immediately the difference on my TV 65", sharpness, contrast, colors, everything is better with the UHD HDR.

The HDR makes a nice difference (my tv is not a real HDR like the new HDR TV), but we see the difference with and without the HDR, i blinked several times during the movie.

When we return to the 1080p, there is something missing and we want to return to the uhd version

This is only my impressions with my equipment.

iso 1080p


iso 2160p/hdr

Hello All,

Sorry for my english

A small update of my review that begins to be old, and it will be useful for future buyers,

Each user uses the box in a different way, and depending on your use of box and bugs still unresolved, you will be satisfied or not with the egreat A5/10.

--------------------------

For my part it meets my expectations, but....

- I do not use games or apk with the Egreat.

- I do not use subtitles.

- I only use artwork downloader with Vidon and the skin aeon nox available in kodi.

- 99% of my collection is in 1080p

---------------------------

I like their POSTER V2.0 but there are bugs that do not allow me to properly use it (Library path disappears for example), it is a shame.

---------------------------

Currently :

I use Vidon, and with my parameters (1080p60 / YcBcR 4.4.4 / 10Bit / HDR auto), I have no problem with the playback of my movies, no crash. no freeze, no stuttering...with my 1080p movies.


I have 4 UHD BD rips and i use the player Egreat (with the following parameters 2160p30 / YcBcR 4.4.4 / 10Bit / HDR auto, Vidon is not compatible with the uhd rips Menu) to enjoy the blu-ray menu.

----------------------------

I start the A10 on Vidon and I use it to see my movies, nothing else.
The egreat has a long list of bugs, but with my use of the device i have the chance to enjoy it without having problems.

----------------------------

see you

Sony XBR65x930c, Onkyo tx-nr656, Focal Dome 7.1, Apple TV 4K, zidoo X20PRO.

I'm running a Synology Server and when tested against my Himedia Q10 and Shield, which neither one can play true sound via Kodi, it plays flawlessly. There's no way anyone can be disappointed. It would be interesting if you provided some details to your reasoning and what box you feel is better and why

I got an A5 and have been spending some time with it. I can't give it a good review until quite a few issues are fixed. Overall I like the feel of the unit, the build quality seems to be very high quality and the clock on the front is a very nice touch.

The interface is very quick and easy, I like how you go into the Videos, set up your folders, and then off it goes scanning and pulling in the posters. Pulling in the posters went really quick, and I was very impressed with it. It would be nice for some mediainfo to be displayed when you go into the video, like video resolution, video codec, and primary audio codec, but it was still a nice display of information. In the Videos section it would also be nice to be able to browse instead of type in the full NFS/SMB folder. I have some long paths, and it was a lot of clicking with the remote. Also, on the initial display of the folders that you've added, it would be nice if you could add a label (like 4K or 3D) instead of it displaying the full path. Again, my paths are really long, so there's a lot of screen real estate that's lost.

As for playing the files, I had a lot of issues, and here they are:

HDR works and my display switched to HDR mode

Have to set YCbCr420 10Bit every time you want to play something with HDR because it reverts to RGB 8bit (it should read from the file what output to set the video to (i.e. 4K 24Hz BT.2020 YCbCr 420 10bit should play at that output even if the GUI is set to 1080p 60Hz YCbCr 444 8bit; then when it’s done playing revert back to what the user has the GUI set to)

Even with YCbCr420 10Bit set when you play a video it’s RGB and not YCbCr420. This was verified from the information my receiver was receiving

4K HDR Encode with passthrough audio (anything with 3850x1600) plays with a double black border on top

Preferred subtitle setting needs a ‘Forced only’ setting

3D works and my display switched to 3D mode but plays as RGB and not YCbCr420

3D subtitles are not in 3D

Audio goes out of sync a lot if Adjust Display is set to on, and there’s a lot of times where the audio completely goes out and then comes back. You can see this happen on the receiver where it goes from displaying the lossless track to nothing, then it goes back to displaying the lossless track. If you turn off Adjust Display, the audio stays in sync but instead it's the video that has issues where it will slow down then play normally for a little while then do it again

Not sure if the Adjust Display is true 23.976 but instead 24Hz which is causing this issue.

The VidOn XBMC player violates the GPL and I tried to remove it from my box but it always told me that 'Uninstall unsuccessful.' This needs to be removed from all the boxes that are being sold.

You are joking right? I can't speak for the Himedia, but the Shield does do HD audio via Kodi/SPMC.

Hello All,

- I continue to make an update of my old review on the A10.

- I am not an audio-visual expert and I write what I see on the screen

- I will re-check if the A10 / A5 always meets the specifications of HDMI 2.0.

- I will do new tests tonight



I will do tests with the following parameters :

YcBcR / RGB 4.4.4 / 10Bit / HDR AUTO / with UHD Demo/ UHD movies (BDMV) having a frequency below 30HZ

YcBcR 4.2.0 / 10Bit / HDR AUTO / with UHD Demo having a frequency above 30HZ

------------------------

All my videos are on my NAS

------------------------

Note:

My receiver Onkyo 656 takes a few seconds to switch to the right frequency, It's almost instantaneous when I plug the Egreat directly to my Sony TV.

------------------------

When they announced that UHD movies would be in 4.2.0 10Bit, many people were disappointed to see that they had chosen the lowest compression quality, many people would hope to have ycbcr 4.4.4 10Bit with the new UHD movies specs,

The reason must be the gain in storage space

The 2160p60 YcBcR 4.2.0 10Bit is only available above 30Hz.

Do not forget either you have to manually change the parameters if it is a 1080p or a 2160p, this is due to a limitation of android OS 5.1 if I remember correctly, you can
correct me in case of error on my part

------------------------

to be continued....

Sony XBR65x930c, Onkyo tx-nr656, Focal Dome 7.1, Apple TV 4K, zidoo X20PRO.

In conclusion :

with the parameters that I give above, everything works properly

I also tried the RGB 4.4.4 10Bit instead of the YcBcR 4.4.4 10Bit and everything works properly.

If you respect the standard HDMI 2.0, there is no problem.

But if you use the wrong settings there is a return in 8Bit, I did it voluntarily.
for example if you use the following parameters : UHD60 / YcBcR 4.2.0 / 10Bit / with a video below 30HZ.

-----------------------

UHD movies (BDMV)


UHD Demo below 30HZ


UHD Demo above 30Hz


------------------------

The only thing annoying me is my receiver that is slow to switch to the right frequency,

As I said above, when the Egreat is connected directly to the tv, it is almost instantaneous.

------------------------

For my part, point 23 of the list of bugs (forum Egreat) is not necessary.

------------------------

See You

ok just an update; dunno if it was said or not here:

situation has changed at Egreat: PRIORITY is update to ANDROID 7 ! BETA is soon and stable should come out in septembre/octobre 2017.....so the box will only get better, right @ltworf13

Good news as many fixes could only be done on Egreat. Happy to see more owners here. Yes i agree with some here that say support is great. Sure now dev. is SLOW, but major updates are coming...and finally that dreaded HDR ratio BUG has been FIXED !

@@timstephens24 most bugs you say...were known and have been confirmed to be fixed...on the new OS however;

On a side note, i finally managed to get my scrapper 100% WORKING with my anime !!! so happy....

1- i just put them in a different directory
2- discovered the adoon "animeDB (MOD)" - works much better than the normal "aniDB"
3- used filebot on pc on some rare episodes not found by scrapper...

As many are wondering....let me tell people that:

we can stream flawlessly via WIFI 1080p mkv with 7.1 HD audio with no stutter/bugs ! of course bitrate should not be huge otherwise it will buffer, but in my case no problem at all !

As far as i am concerned the only thing now that the crucial fixes are on the way is a new VIDON version for next year...as many skins, iptv addons no longer work with old Kodi Code....come on Egreat please

Good Morning,

I continue to make an update of my old review on the A10.

There was a problem with the 3D subtitle in the latest update.

This has been corrected, 3D subtitles work properly now.

Hello,

You have just received your (Great) Egreat and did not know which settings to choose...do not worry.



We are there to help you

--------------------

Note:
The settings are valid only with the Egreat player ( i did not try with vidon )

--------------------

1st choice

You have a mix of 1080p and UHD movies in your videos collection and do not want to change the settings every 5 minutes of your UHD HDR TV.

On the advice of Arch30n ( on the forum homecinema.fr page 32), here are the parameters :

2160p30 / YCbCr 444 / 10Bit / HDR auto

With these parameters you will be able to see your films 1080p and UHD / UHD HDR without problems.

If you have videos with a frequency above 50Hz, you will need to change the settings ( 2160p60 / YcBcR 4.2.0 / 10Bit, but except for some UHD demos this should not be the case if I do not make mistake )

--------------------

2nd choice

You do not have yet UHD movies, only 1080p movies, here are the parameters (it's your TV that will do the upscaling 4K) :

1080p60 / YCbCr 444 10 bits / HDR auto

These are my settings because my Sony TV has an excellent upscaling 4K and I do not watch UHD movies.

If you want to see demo UHD / UHD HDR occasionally, you will need to change the settings:

YcBcR or RGB 4.4.4 / 10Bit / HDR AUTO / with UHD Demo/ UHD movies (BDMV) having a frequency below 30HZ

YcBcR 4.2.0 / 10Bit / HDR AUTO / with UHD Demo having a frequency above 50HZ


--------------------

3rd choice

The quality of the upscaling is different according to the brands of TV, so you can try both choice and see what settings you prefer.


According to your choice it is your egreat or your TV that will make the upscaling

--------------------

Have nice week end

Hello,

I have a himedia Q10 pro and I installed the Beta FW 2.04 android 7 with the new SDK of Hisilicone

It includes a fix for the ratio problem with UHD HDR movie and now everything works correctly.

Egreat will also pass on android 7 in the next few weeks and take advantage of the new SDK that contains the fix.

it is a good news

Hello friend,thanks a lot for your hard work,right i still Considering the idea of which media player buy,i see you make a blu ray 3d review,thats a very important feature to me because almost all my movie collection is in blu ray and blu ray 3d iso's,so i need to ask you,if the blu ray 3d menu works fine??,subtitles in 3d movies now works fine??,i looking for a player can play full blu ray menu in both 2d and 3d iso or folders,i have a dune hd max,is like 8 years old and i must to say still works like a charm,the only bad thing is not 3d :-(
thats why i looking for a new player,i still Considering the Dune HD Duo 4K( is too expensive) or the Dune HD Solo 4K,but i keep reading all the post about this A10 and i found the unit now play UHD 4K BLU RAY ISO MENUS!!,can you confirm this??,thanks a lot!!,i really apreciate any recommendation
