Enhancements & Bug Fixes:

  • Preliminary support for WiDi Gen4 low latency mode. A new option should appear in the WiDi application for prioritizing speed over quality. The “AVSYNC” uboot variable also has new functionality, though it is still currently set to “1”. Change appropriately if you would like to change the default behavior.
    NOTE-1: AVSYNC automatically changes from 1 to 2 when entering “low delay” mode in WiDi, and similarly from 2 to 1 when exiting “low delay” mode.
    NOTE-2: Audio is currently not working in low delay mode.
    • AVSYNC = 0: Disabled.
    • AVSYNC = 1: Video FW uses Audio PTS for AV sync operation
    • AVSYNC = 2: Video FW uses STC, System Clock, (ignore audio and decode as fast as possible) for AV sync operation.
    • AVSYNC = 3: Combined mode. AVSYNC = 1 for DECODER_LATENCY > 75, AVSYNC = 2 in the rest of cases.
  • Nexus4 Android 4.2.2 compatibility issue – Fixed a rare connection issue related to RTSP.
  • Improved low power usage for EU region, by suspending to DDR. DC power usage was measured at 290mW. With a 70% efficient A/C adapter it should be around 440mW.
  • Fixed incorrect setting of decoder latency which was causing video to be early by a couple frames (A/V Sync issue).

Known Issues:

  • Audio does not work with WiDi 4.x Low Delay mode.
  • Samsung S3 occasionally does not connect. We are working with QCA on the issue. It appears to be a WiFi driver/firmware bug.
  • Nexus4 streaming issues:
    • Phone stops sending data abruptly while streaming high definition video. Air sniffer captures show phone stops sending video packets and goes back to scanning. As result dongle waits for at least 10 seconds for the phone to respond and goes back to ready screen if the phone does not respond.
  • Samsung Galaxy S3 4.1.1 phone bugs:
    • Connection will fail if this is done: Start Allshare cast app on phone. Lock the screen and let the phone be idle for 10 minutes. Unlock the screen. Remedy: Toggle WiFi switch on phone settings.
    • Connection halts after playing a video from Video Player application.
  • Sony Experia Tsubasa (version 7.0.A.3.185) the mirrored video does not show up until there is activity on the handset screen. Fixed in 9.0.D.1.126.
  • [Intel] Win8 WiDi application hangs sometimes on reconnection, requiring a laptop re-boot.
