 Video Output Scaling

Hi,

I noticed, that the Resolution is always scaled to a resolution of 1280x720.
It doesn't matter which resolution you configured in the settings.

The problem with this scaling is that 1080p-playback makes no sense if it will be scaled down to 720p.
You can check that if you read the framebuffer-settings with this command(via ADB):
Code:
fbset -fb /dev/graphics/fb2

Or just take a Screenshot.

I hope this will be fixed because it's a no go.

Hi M1cha,

first of all thanks for ongoing interest in our product. To your question:
the fbset output will always give you 720p regardless what video resolution you choose. Since the OSD- and Video-Layer are separated the OSD Layer is fixed to 1280x720 whereas the video Layer will adapt to the current video output. The Hardware scales the OSD Layer to the current video output and merges the two layers together.
Hope this explains why fbset shows you 720p at all times.

thanks & best regards,

Ok thanks.
But is there a reason why the OSD-Layer(which is used by Android) is scaled to that resolution?
I don't think you will see much difference but everything you see(except Videos) are rendered in a smaller native resolution(for example Pictures).

If i am correct this is the max. that this android version can handle and therefore also scales always to 720 in the menus.

cheers,
