Higher h265 bit depth support?

#1

The bit depth limit of 8 is very limiting, I'm finding I'm having to convert all of my videos.

Any update when PMS is going to support bit depth of 10 or even 12?


#2

The Shield support 10bits h. 265 direct play. With firmware 5.2 and PMS 1.7.4, also support 10 bits transcoding. I don't think the hardware supports 12 bits though.


#3

I have 5.2 firmware and PMS 1.7.4, but still being encoded.

I have attached an XML file of media info.

I think your issue is the same as discussed here:
