I'm using libreelec 8.2.5 using this image on a mecool ki pro. The idea was to replace an old and bulky vdr box.
Tvheadend works but
- it has problem tuning to some muxes (femon reports a stable lock)
- I prefer vdr because of a specific plugin I'm going to need.
I thought that maybe the problem was because of the old vdr version, so I managed to build vdr-2.4.0 (taking the recipes from libreelec master), but it still doesn't work .
Now, according to the bug report I mentioned before, this is a problem with vdr, but the funny thing is that on the pc, with the same vdr version (2.4.0) and the dvbapi plugin (same git checkout) everything works fine .
Another fun fact; the dvbapi plugin on x86 dynamically links to libdvbcsa, on aarch64 it doesn't (same Makefile ), though it doesn't complain about any missing symbol at startup, so I suppose it links libdvbcsa statically?
