Unfortunately the Reframes on that video is too high (it says 8 in your mediainfo dump) at 1920x1040 the max reframes is 5


With firmware after 1.01.01 the specs should be
x-1920 Y-800-832@8rf ; 848-928@7rf ; 944-1024@6rf ; 1040-1080@5rf
x-1440 Y-800-832@11rf 848-896@10rf ; 912-960@9rf ; 976-1056@8rf ; 1072-1080@7rf
x-1280 : all 720p labeled videos are fully compatible

FINALLY found the answer! Thank you!

I searched for video choppy, video errors, video stutter, 1080p, etc etc and finally found this thread with a search for "video blocky".

Whats the easiest way (if there is one) to change the Reframes? I'm assuming reencoding would be necessary, but I have no experience with this. Is there a software that can accomplish this easily?
