Xbox One.
« on: 24 November 2013, 05:48:43 PM »

Seems like there may be a bit of a problem when using the HDMI pass through feature on the Xbox One in the UK & Europe :

The Xbox 360 took almost a year to get 50Hz support. I would hope that they can be a little bit quicker this time around....

Out of interest, has anyone lag-tested the HDMI input on the XBOne yet? I know MS have said its very low, but I'd rather not take their word for it.

Wow, I thought it had 50 Hz right away.
They seem to constantly misunderstand the European video standards, which is odd.
Hadn't they thought it before releasing the console in Europe? Of course, any 50/60 Hz conversion or PiP would cause stutter or other artifacts.

There is some noticeable lag, but it isn't unplayable.

I've seen some notes on lag on Digital Foundry.

It took a year for them to add 50Hz mode on Xbox 360.
They still have plenty of time to fix 50Hz on Xbox Juan (sorry, this name is kinda stuck in my mind).

I've found a nice explanation of Deep Color on the example of Xbox One:
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/141-xbox-area/1501007-xbox-one-video-settings-bit-depth-3.html#post27024009

Guy quotes none other than Stacey Spears:
Quote
We might see some content delivered as 10-bit before the end of the year using HEVC.

On the Xbox One, 8-bit RGB is delivered to the HDMI transmitter. If you are outputting 36-bit, it is padded with zeros just before output. No actual processing is done at >8-bit. Xbox One's Blu-ray player is a matter of convenience only. A standalone Blu-ray player is better. I worked on the Xbox One, so I know the internals of the entire video pipeline.

Yet some people will claim they see a huge difference in 30/36-bit mode, like better gradation/smoother transitions...

I love it when this sort of thing comes to light. The emperor's new clothes!

This is probably my favorite example:
