Kodi 18.0 Update for Slice.

  • Hi,

    I've just used the standard built in update process to update to Kodi 18.0-BETA1 (8.90.004) on my Slice.

    Everything that I use seems to be working great, it's even got the latest HEVC updates, so is playing HEVC very well.

    Thanks to everyone involved and Chewitt for compiling it up for our box.

    Regards,

    Kevin.

  • Hi, it would be nice if someone could confirm that the images (they are the release images) for Slice/3 are working.

    libreelec-slice.arm-8.90.005.img.gz

    Was running 8.2.5 ; I downloaded and saved the ...slice.arm...img.gz file (CM1) into .update folder; rebooted; found update and installed OK; reboot..... now I can only get

    Error in mount_flash: mount_common Could not mount  /dev/mmcblk0p5

    Have been searching and trying various things, but no luck.


    I still have the slice noobs, so should I Flash LibreELEC to internal eMMC storage?


    EDIT: I finally pieced together various howto sources and was able to reflash eMMC with the 8.90.005. Seems to work. But I have other set-up and problems to work through getting back to the previous state of functionality.


    Cheers

  • Thanks, that's good to know. I'm not due much credit though .. it's all working nicely due it being an RPi in disguise.


    CvH if you need a tester for the 005 alpha while I'm on vacation! ;)

    You had to include the extra bits for our LED's and the analogue audio chip (which works, I've tried it through my HiFi). :-)

  • Hi,

    I have found a problem. If I play a reasonably heavily compressed HEVC file, which is dark, I'm getting green and purple blocks, almost exclusively on the right hand side of the screen, mainly down the edge, but up to a quarter of the way across the screen, playing the same file using Milhouses RPi2 test build 20180730 #0730, it's playing fine on my test Pi3. I've updated to Milhouse build 20180918 #0918 and I now get the coloured blocks on Milhouses build, so I'll report it in the test build thread.

    Photos of the problem here. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/nht0h53eqdsz8...8Uwba?dl=0
