I hear where you are coming from Feranti.
The good news is for my issue all I had to do was uninstall Pix.exe, reinstall Pix.exe… then reboot.
(note my screenshot got skewed a bit…that why it looks a little off :p)
Haha yeah, sweet that’s great to hear.
Let me know how your upgrade goes.
I haven’t played with the cool colors in the upgrade so I’m not sure… do you find that option useful? I was afraid it would make movies too hard in the eyes, but I guess for an hour or so the extra blue light should be fine.
I tried Kodi. I added my movies, tv shows and photos to the libraries from my NAS system as well as the HDHomerun Prime for live TV. All of them work. Everything works OK except the screen is squeezed and hard to see the corners. Maybe it just needs some tweaking. I also don’t like the skin and may experiment with others.
I had to use Extend mode. KODI was installed in English when I updated PiPlay. When I open KODI it automatically runs on the PIMAX as the extended display in Windows. The rest of what I did was with the standard KODI features. Check the KODI website for documentation.
Thanks. Just tried it. I think I’ll stick with the Steam Simple VR Video Player. Much more intuitive for me. Also, LiveViewRift wouldn’t play some of my 360 videos. My main interest in it is for viewing Live Streaming 360. Have you tried that by any chance?
oh, yeah I would like them to add a 360 mode. my favorite mode for regular videos is the curved screen, where it curves a bit in all directions. With LiveViewRift you should plug in an Xbox controller, makes things so simple.
I like the idea of the 360 videos…but do they have 3D 360, they could do that (unless they do). Thats why I more started just watching 1080p 3d movies. but 3D 360 would interest me a lot. I didnt know they had live streaming of 360 videos… do you just search google for that or is there a good spot?
I have been tempted to back this kick-starter campaign,
Sounds like something you might also be interested in.
Regarding simple vr,
I previously used SImple VR Player and other Steam apps… but until the Pimax Team makes pimax mode higher resolution I have been biased to extended mode. With 2560x1440, and a `1080p movie I really do feel you see a difference. 2k can do 1080p per eye… If think Pimax mode is only 1080p total resolution… although I guess if you are lucky enough to have direct mode maybe thats not the case.
