[8.90.6] LibreELEC 9.0 Alpha for S905/S912 devices

  • Keyboard doesn't do anything in Kodi. Should I do something in settings to activate the keyboard?

    In case someone else has this problem, here is the solution: Some keyboards are being detected as joystick in linux.
    My keyboard A4Tech G800V is one of them.
    As GDPR-2 said (then removed?) in his post, I had to make a udev rule to prevent my keyboard being detected as a joystick.

    1. Downloaded 51-these-are-not-joysticks.rules file from GitHub - denilsonsa/udev-joystick-blacklist: Fix for keyboard/mouse/tablet being detected as joystick in Linux

    2. Copy to /etc/udev/rules.d/51-these-are-not-joysticks.rules

    3. Reboot

  • GDPR-2

    Just a friendly note, before you possibly burn out by answering nearly every question here three times and compiling and contributing etc. at the same time. The community here is really happy to have you + kszaq + afl1 here supporting this hardware (+everybody else I temporarily don't remember). I don't know maybe sometimes you feel obliged to answer everyone here, but you don't have to. If the need is big enough people will begin searching, if they don't they learn not using pre alpha software the hard way, that's it. Maybe you think about again about not locking this thread, leave it open for talk like now and create another just for collecting faq-like postings from advanced users. My english is not so good, this text is to be understood with high respect and is referring to this :)

  • Yes I also tested this new dev build from today on my play2 and after enabled crazycat drivers wifi does not work and dvb tuner. When I enable le default driver wifi is ok but no adapters in tvh webif settings

  • To find out what HDMI connected display - Gamma and bit depth capabilities are registered with LE for use:

    cat /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/dc_cap


    Forced RGB output is not needed unless you are getting Pink or Green screen on old Sony/Philips TV's.

    This command gives me all options available within the last build.

    S905 doesn't support 10 bit output. You can decode 10bit H.265 but they will be scaled to 8bit output.

    Thanks, so choosing 444,10bit will not change anything at all.

  • I wasn't sure if it would work that's why I removed my comment but I'm glad it did.

  • hi GDPR-2 i tested this


    wifi not work after rebout and wetekdvb not work after enable crazycat dvb


    see me rabort

    I didn't build this using my usual machine so that may have caused an issue, I will look into it more tonight.

  • Thank you for the le potato build - at least for Kodi it will be useful. ;)

    So far it seems stable to me. I just recognized that my 292e PCTV tripleStick is not recognized properly - it is not visible for TVheadend. In kszaq builds it was working so maybe some driver needs to be added?

  • Does the S912 still have issues with stuttering when subtitles are displayed and H/W decoding is enabled? S905X has the behaviour the first time a subtitle appears on the screen while watching a video, the subsequent subtitles do not cause it.

    The S905 also has this same issue. There is micro-stuttering when subtitles are displayed. I disable subtitles and it plays perfectly. It doesn't always stutter in the same spot when I replay a scene that initially had a stutter. Some scenes are more prone to stuttering than others.

    I noticed that too with my 905x, but not only the first Subtitle. It appeare randomly , ca. every 20th Sub, both types, SRT in MKV or SUP embedded in m2ts/Blu-ray Structur.
