UG802 video Picture quality

Postby totolegrand » Wed Oct 17, 2012 4:30 pm

Does any one else has compared video quality with other devices, as internal Samsung TV streamer or XStreamerPro?
I did and as far as I can see, UG802 video quality is inferior to those other devices.
the picture is too dark and contrasted. the video is choppy and doesn't play smoothly.
I bought this device as a upgraded replacement to my Xtreamer and my Samsung Smart tv cause I wanted more control.
BTW, I played the file locally from the UG802 SD card but from the network with the 2 others.
I will try to post few images later.

i have exactly the same issue. it is not as clear as it appears on my samsung tv directly or even MK808 (whose resolution problem we know that is fixed to 720p). I hope another firmware upgrade can sort this out. May be they need to update the gpu driver or other video related drivers. But as far as the UI is concerned, it is pretty sharp as compared to MK808

I noticed this since 1st time I connected it to a display.

First of all it was to a DVI computer monitor. Then a FullHD 37'' TV set. It certainly hasn't a 1:1 'max' (pixel-to-pixel) FullHD output resolution. For instance, draw a single black pixel, save it as image, then open it in the browser. It should correspond to one screen pixel, but it doesn't. It's surrounded by other greyish pixels, making it appear as blurred. You can adjust HDMI output mode in the settings sections, also change the scaling method to tune it a bit, but to this moment I haven't been able to get a 1:1 pixel correspondence, which makes me doubt it it is really FullHD capable.

To be more precise, it's 1280x6XX, no matter if I set it to 720 or to 1080p. I'm not in front of the UG802, so I don't remember the exact XX values. But that's what some of those web pages that tell you the resolution of your screen. I already noticed it because I was visiting a wide site, made for 1920x1080, that looks screwed up when viewed in the UG802, with left and right columns mounted one on the other.

Also that same resolution is what XBMC says on its info page.

So this gadget displaying FullHD is simply a lie. Who knows if it is ever capable of outputting 1920x1080.

here is the apk

I uploaded to my dropbox.

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/39462568/UG_fixer.apk

and the google translate of it;
1. switch permits 1360h768

2. swap SDcard and External_SD (external system sees as an internal card and puts the program there) has the problem with some programs

3. reconnect the system permissions.

4. corrects build.prop:
4.1 Changes the TCP buffers to speed WIFI and USB Ethernet
4.2 Changes the density of points in the image 160dpi/120dpi (all will become smaller or larger)
4.3, the set of tweaks.
4.4 Program GOOGLE switch to tablet mode
4.5 prohibits programs rotate screen.
4.6 allows sleep (then add a few keys that will turn off / put to sleep the beast)

Requires ROOT

Thanks, I think that 2dark4u is preparing a custom rom (with 1080 support ?) . Maybe, he is active on this site on another name.

Flashed the JB preview and netflix looks like crap, but it did on all the roms. Did the wifi mod and have full bars, speedtest puts me at 7.5mbits down 1.2mbits up, so its not a network issue, and non of the hd or amazon netflix apks work. Bah bought this for netflix and it can't even do that properly....very discouraged

Sounds like the issue is with netflix, haven't tried it myself but in all the videos I've seen of various devices playing netflix the video quality looks well crappy.
