The latest 8.90.4 build is running great on my X96 Mini (S905W). I used the specific S905W DTB: gxl_p281_1g.dtb.
Only weird thing with these S905W boxes is still the deinterlacing. Some 1080i material via an TvHeadend server is showing weird artifacts (green/pinks lines) after a few seconds. For example look at this topic: X96 mini - green/pink lanes on picture
When setting this via SSH it is fixed 'echo 1 > /sys/module/di/parameters/bypass_all'
But if I understand correctly the Amlogic deinterlacing is turned off completely with this command? So it only is an workaround?
I don't really see any difference when watching interlaced material, maybe my TV is deinterlacing when bypass_all = 1? (on 1080p output?)
I can provide examples of problematic 1080i files, if someone wants to look into this problem?
This command will be executed automatically on future releases when using p281 dtb projects/Amlogic: disable deinterlacing on S905W · LibreELEC-AML/[email protected] · GitHub it has been noted that deinterlacing is an issue on S905W for some months now, this may have been fixed with the newer nougat kernel but we are still using the older one for now because it works the best.
Thanks Adam for your usual helpful response. Yes I fully understand and of course as always support and respect your good work here.
I was just making a point here as these days there seems so may so called updates in so many walks of life that I find end up being downgrades and was worried this might end up the same way. Sure I fully understand these are early test releases only and you are right to comply with the new default system for remote mapping. I will try to adapt my really nice Beelink MXIII II remote.conf file I use in LE8 to this new mapping system when I get my head around it. The key allocations I currently have mapped and use with LE8 I find very user friendly with all keys on the Beelink remote being mapped for useful purposes. If I succeed when and if I get time to try, I will indeed post it wherever is appropriate here for the LE9 remote mapping files. I will also do the same for my TX7 box too. Just finding the time as retirement can be so busy hmm
It's really not a hard thing to do if you follow the instructions to the letter, it is very easy, even easier than making a config the old way. You view it as a downgrade because what you are used to no longer works but this is not the case, you can now use ANY remote and any config you create can be used on any device be it an amlogic box or a rockchip based box or even an x86 box. Your TX7 remote should work out of the box because I already added the config for this remote into the build.
Like it or lump it but this is what official LE9 releases will be using so you will have to get used to it whether you like it or not if you want to use the latest versions of LE, sorry to be blunt.
