  • can nobody tell me how to get pvr.dvbviewer running?

    Two options:

    1. You can repeat this questions so much times untils some one tells You how to run it

    2. You can use a stable LE version and install addon from the repo

  • and ???

    which is stable?

    no stable exist!


    this version is the first candidate which can be called as stable. :P

    but without dvbviewer not usable for me.

  • l8 stable ... maybe, but its pvr.dvbviewer is not stable.

    i switch on german "deluxe music sd" and then i just scroll through the channels in mini epg ... freeze, crash, reboot.

  • @balbes:

    any changelog for your updates or not noticeable and just master ones?

  • wedok Kodi bumped the addon api recently but we (me) didn't build/push updated 3.14 kernel addons to the repo since then so whats in the repo is probably not compatible. I'll update them in the next couple of days when I have time.

  • Updated image 20180511 (in catalog 20180511_1).


    The main change in the composition of the image added a data_to_emmc_uEnv.ini. Which allows the use of LE in the mode with the placement of the system on external media, and the data in the eMMC. Details of how this works can be found in this thread.


    [HOWTO] Boot from SD card, use internal memory for data


    Please note that to use the system in EMMC mode, you only need to rename the script on the media (SD card or USB flash drive) from


    data_to_emmc_uEnv.ini


    to


    uEnv.ini


    You do not need to perform other steps. Not in itself a eMMC not need to change.



    Please note, uEnv.ini is a plain text file that contains the variables to run the kernel. You can easily add or remove variables. For example, you can add a variable with its MAC address mac=you_Mac_address

    Changed the title of the thread from “Test LibreELEC images with KODI-18 for S9xxx.” to “Test LibreELEC images with KODI-18 for S9xxx”.
  • Downloaded the S912 build for my U9. Playback seems fine but I have found I am not getting any sound output for AAC-LC (LATM) encoded video. AC3 files work fine but I just get silence on those AAC tracks. I could play other AAC files fine, just those originating from DVB recordings.

    Played these in a windows nightly from yesterday and they play so it seems to be isolated to my device/build. Anyone else seeing this?

  • I'm struggling getting the Netflix Add-On working on my Minix UH-9 with CoreELEC. Is it worth trying to update with LibreELEC-S905.arm-18.0_20180522.tar?
