[8.2.4.1] LibreELEC Kodi Krypton - S905 & S912 devices

  • @Rootz


    Yeah copy the .tar into the .update folder and restart your device.

    Or you can use a SFTP client, show hidden folders and do the same thing.

  • On the latest chroma test build it seems the subtitle fix is not included? I am installing my new mecool pro + today but i would swear there was a separate external subtitles fix build available for s905x?

    To answer my own question:

    LibreELEC-S905.arm-8.2.4.2-S905Test-1529136339.img.gz

    is working with external subtitles on s905x

  • If it is still 8bit output then there is a new 444,10bit update available that also has a default 1000/0.005nits MaxFALL/MaxCLL

    This will improve brightness of problematic mastered 4K HDR Bluray Rips:

    Can i do this by SSH command?

    I´m saying activate 1000/0.005nits MaxFALL/MaxCLL by command via SSH

    - LibreELEC 8.2 (Nougat Kernel) builds aimed at devices based on Amlogic S905/S905X SoC.

  • Why are you saying LE 8.2.5.1 is latest for S912? The OP only has LE 8.2.4.1 as is in title name.

  • Yes chrisssj2 and it works very well indeed apart from the two obscure problems I reported. Anyone have any answers BTW ??

    Bluetooth does work for keyboards but not audio in my box.

  • There is lots of ongoing testing in the AML Linux Kernel with Bit depth & Chroma output and that is exactly why that Kodi settings option is put in there to bypass such issues. I've only seen such Horizontal red video output on S905W boxes with interlaced TV.


    Not sure about 3D support, never use it personally and the only 3D .mkv file I last tested output 1080p. It's definitely not on the high priority list at the moment.

  • Hi wrxtasy


    I've tested all this commits made by graham8 and samnazarko in linux kernel for OSMC and I can say that are working. I've tested some HDR 10bits sample in a clean CoreELEC installation and autoswitch Color Depth and gamma is working like you autoswitch patch in last realease.

    Please can you add in your kernel branch and make new build? Thanks.

    Thanks for feedback wrxyasy. Yes indeed i have since discovered that somehow my Sytem display settings had changed to 1080i instead of 1080p. Changed that back to Progreessive mode and tI can now switch off the "Disable Deinterlaced Post Processing'' setting without any such tearing now. So seems it relates to interlaced mode wiht some media types.


    Out of interest I also get another weord problem with some UHD files (non 3D) when it is set to interlaced display mode, in that the bottom blank area of a letterbox media screen flashes different blank colours associated with the picture chroma content and when I press the Enter button on the remote I do not get the Play/ Pause, Stop and Subtitles, Settings etc options showing at the bottom. The timing and other usual info is still there at teh screen top however. Switch back to Progresive mode and the problem geos away but it is not with ALL UHD files ????


    Yep appreciate that 3D issues are low importance but just thought it was infor that needed conveying to you adn others here. 3D is important to many folk and would still be for me if they installed 3D facilites in new TVs today as I strongly believe they should. But it is still relevant as I cannot play in 2D my numerous good quality 3D movie files now with this 8.2.5.1 build. I know it worked fine with the old 8.2.3.1 build but have to confess not tested it with any of your recent 8.2.4 builds or even the recent 8.2.5 444 Chroma build.


    Anyway keep up the great work, very much appreicated.

    Cheers

  • Hi to all!


    First time here and also to the TV-Box world...

    Till now I was using my TV to play everything plus I was streaming my content through DLNA but I was not satisfied with the results.

    I decided and bought a MINIX U9-H device that came to me yesterday.


    What I did was to firstly let it auto update everything then I created a micro sd with the build from wrxtasy

    I installed the LibreELEC-S912.arm-8.2.5-Chroma.422.10bit.img.gz and then updated to LibreELEC-S912.arm-8.2.5.1-444-1000nits.tar


    I would like to ask some questions in order to make sure that everything is working as it should.


    1) How am I suppose to know if a 4k 10bit hdr movie is actually playing with 4:4:4 10bit ? ( my tv supports 10bit ( 8bit + FRC ) ) so I dont really know if I'm suppose to see 10bit somewhere in kodi.


    2) How am I suppose to know if auto switching is working?


    3) How can I do some editing to the autostart.sh ( I enabled the gpu to 792Hz and I read somewhere that I can disable the autoscale from autostart? should I really need to do that? ) and In general is there a terminal that you throw commands on it?


    4) Can I install any kodi build (theme) I like, like I would do with a normal kodi installation? will this overwrite any of wrxtasy settings?


    5) My setup goes as follows U9 > Denon AVR > TV now denon supports 4k upscaling and I believe it would be maybe better than my TV's, is there any way to let the upscale to be done from denon?


    Thank you in advanced and sorry for my noobish questions.

  • For anyone else with the Mecool M8S PRO L that wants to get your bluetooth remote working with these builds, I followed the guide here that wrxtasy provided for the Xiaomi Mi Box remote with success. I remapped the suggested buttons too which was a great help as I couldn't get the context menu to display since long press on "ok" doesn't register as a long press.

    So after a reboot into ATV and back into LE this no longer works. Tried to retrace my steps to get it working again but couldn't for the life of me work it out again and all I seemed to do was break my airmouse in the process. Think I'll leave bluetooth alone since there is clearly some compatibility issues.

  • 4.) You're welcome to install Skins, but if you install piracy "builds" you will receive no further support in this forum (read forum rules).

    Thanks for your answer, I was talking about themes (skins) cause I really do not like the default but I was afraid if the installation can brake any of the tweaks wrxtasy makes.

  • Do not worry, I switch all my boxs back to Confluence theme without problem.
