Nightly images for A64, H3, H5, H6 and R40 boards

  • Dear Jernej, many thanks for your kind and quick reply! I have just installed that add-on and now even pause/resume and rewind backward/forward functions work when watching archived programs through IPTV Simple client!!! I greatly appreciate your help!!!

  • MoToR  Timpanogos Slim  kursantkvi I finally manage to find H6 HDMI bug (actually two), which prevented proper working. Please test following H6 update: LibreELEC-H6.arm-9.80-devel-20210202235002-b20ba58.tar

    It's made from this branch: Commits · jernejsk/ · GitHub

    I'm not a good specialist... what should I do with this tar file?

    I took the image LibreELEC-H6.arm-9.80-nightly-20210207-91cf0cd-orangepi-lite2.img - now everything works!

    my TVs show a good picture.

    Thank you very much!!!

    Edited once, last by MoToR ().

  • Those fixes were just merged in LE master so they should be in today's nightly images. tar are just updates - you put them in /storage/.update and reboot. You can actually do same thing with .img.gz files...

    Now everything works!

    My TVs show a good picture.

    Thank you very much!!!

  • jernej I wrote today's image on a new SD (zeroed the first 10MB) and everything works perfectly, shutdown and restart by the original remote, sleep and wake up by the remote, both working as expected.

    Thank you very much for your development and your support, now it feels like a readymade bought STB.

    It's really cool!

  • Dear Jernej,

    I remember that once there was an options screen of HDMI CEC (like add-on configuring menu) but I can't find it in current nightly updates. Is it still present somewhere in the menus, or have this feature gone? Thanks!

  • Thanks Chewitt!

    Could you explain me please, should the TV turn on Orange Pi Plus 2E from sleep through HDMI CEC, or would this feature be ever possible in your future updates (if not)? Is the IR remote the only way for now?

  • Thanks Jernej!

    I have one more issue to report that is still present on my Orange Pi Plus 2E. I have wrote it some time ago, but it is still here and I don't know how to resolve it.

    The problem is that if I power on Orange Pi when my TV is already on and is set to any other input rather then Orange Pi I get no image when I switch to Pi input later on TV (even though I can control the Kodi with remote app as hear the UI sounds and I do a restart in such case). The only way to eliminate the issue is to set the Pi's TV input before powering up the board.

    I have switched off HDMI CEC on both TV and Kodi and that does nothing with the problem. I have also tried different HDMI cables. I have three other HDMI devices (Apple TV, SAT, Pioneer Blu-ray) connected to this TV and non of them reproduce this issue. Any ideas, how to resolve it? Any help is highly appreciated!

    Any ideas, how to resolve it?

    No. It would take some time to debug it, but as you noticed, it's not priority for me.

    After turning on the TV from stand-by mode HDMI-CEC does not work

    i am using orange pi pc (H3) and the latest build LibreELEC-H3.arm-9.80-nightly-20210207-91cf0cd-orangepi-pc.img.gz

    On old version that used LibreELEC-H3.arm-9.80-devel-20200426021229-38764c8-orangepi-pc.img everything was OK

    This is huge range, a lot changed in between. Can you narrow it down to specific PR with bisecting? It's annoying to build so many images but I don't know better way to pinpoint the reason.

  • No. Maybe. There is power button too.

    Concerning the CEC feature I want to report that my TV is able to turn off Kodi and Kodi is able to turn on and off the TV with current updates. I just don't know if this feature works with all other user's devices, or not. That's why I want to share it for your reference.

  • Hi, I am trying to install on emmc of my orange pi 3 H6

    2. Installation command was added - install2emmc - it creates clean installation on emmc from currently running image (no download is needed). If you want to transfer settings, backup and restore functionality must be used.

    But when I try to do it i got error.

    LibreELEC (community): nightly-20210212-bb390f9 (H6.arm)

    LibreELEC:/usr/bin # install2emmc

    U-Boot not found. Please update current installation with board specific update or image first.

    Please any help would be welcome.
