[8.90.1] CoreELEC for S905/S912 devices

  • Tried this latest edition on NEO U9-H. Unfortunately it is unusable. With subtitles on , the video stutters and unwatchable.

    To report a bug or an issue with this build, please submit a ticket here

    Need a little hack in advancedsettings.xml "<algorithmdirtyregions>0</algorithmdirtyregions>", no stutters.

  • sudo dd if=/dev/mmcblk0 of=~/yourimagename.img


    this will create an image on your home directory called yourimagename.img using cmd from your sd card (mmcblk0)


    sudo dd if=~/yourimagename.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=16M


    this will burn your image back to SD card. Of course change directories to reflect your system.


    I only use 4gb sd cards and it normally takes about 5 min to create image and around 10 to burn on sd


    In this way I also have a good back up in case something goes wrong

  • I prefer the CE/LE built-in (if only because it doesn't require any other addons). The choice is yours, both of them just copy /storage/.kodi and some other key folders :)

    Robweber's addon doesn't copy the whole .kodi folder. The built-in LE backup will restore on another card to give an identical (functionally) setup. Unless things have changed recently the backup addon will leave 3rd party addons disabled (on krypton and later).

    I knew there was a reason to prefer the built-in, it's been a long while since I used the addon, thanks @trogggy :thumbup:

  • isnt there a switch in the gui now to set hdmi black levels?

    i tried every option in "system/coreelec/colour space" but black level selector on my samsung tv stays greyed out.


    the only way to get it working is via the "echo 1 > /sys/class/amhdmitx/amhdmitx0/output_rgb" trick.

  • For the sake of curiosity: did anyone try the new libretro integration in Leia to add some retrogaming capabilities to our cheap boxes?
    I tried with Raybuntu's builds long time ago but without effective success, wonder if in latest builds some progresses have been made.
    (sorry for the OT, in case we could start a new thread maybe with an howto to setup a fully working retrogaming platform in Leia).

    CE/LE built-in all the way... definitely!

  • Could anyone advise which tvheadend version and which drivers work correctly with Wetek Play 2 DVB-S2 version?

  • f..k, my SD card is 16GB. This is likely to take a long time =O

    Sequencial reading (that occurs in this type of backup) is way faster than random readings.

    My 4Gb SD takes about 1-2 minutes to backup. For a complete peace of mind, that's more than acceptable.


    The "worst" part is keeping a 16Gb file even if you are only using 1Gb...

    (I have a 4Tb drive full of "material" :cool: and my CE/LE backup has only about 500Mb - I'm backing up ~3.5Gb of zeros :cry:)


    Edit: try MiniPartion Tool (free) - I guess you can backup only the relevant part (I have it, but didn't bother to use for this purpose)

    That'd be the biggest part. Better off just doing a backup and restore of kodi :cool:

  • Too many bugs. It is an unusable relase

    Thank you for your most valuable contribution.
