[8.0.2e] LibreELEC 8.0 for S905/S905X


  • I'm using MAC and the downloaded file is:

  • Do you have the chroma upsampling issue with the build from Raybuntu (official LibreELEC?) on your Wetek Hub as well?



    Image from krypton kszaq or krypton raybuntu (beta3) looks the same to me.

    Wetek Hub: LibreElec 8.2.3.1 (Philips 42PFL8404)

    AKASO HM8 (S905X): CoreElec 9.0 dev build, Acer Revo 3610: Milhouse test

  • That is interesting.
    It makes me wonder why so few people are moaning about this...

    I get exactly the same video information from the video Hans uploaded: AVC [email protected]
    Youtube-dl must have downloaded another version of the video.


    Anyway, there is a little judder but it's not annoying, to my eyes at least. The VP9 video is smoother.
    Unfortunately, I don't have time now to test it with Jarvis.

  • Yes, installtointernal wipes internal partition with user data. Running it will create a clean install.


    Is it possible to backup the internal partition with userdata and restore it after "installtointernal" ?

    Thanks for trying :)


    edit: I just tried playing back the VP9 version and you're right about the S905 not being able to play that! Very slow and 100% CPU usage.

    To be honest, while I can see the difference clearly in the pattern video, I fail to notice it with my regular media.


    My eyes are not the best and my TV with which I can test is quite old, so this might contribute. My projector setup is still on Jarvis; I did not compare there.

  • I understand.
    With a bit more distance to a maybe smaller TV I can see how the issue might not be very obvious - especially if there is no direct comparison to Jarvis or another device.
    However watching SD or 720p content I can move far away from my 65" and still see the problem.


    At my regular 3m distance to the 65", it is unacceptable to me, no matter which resolution.
    But I am patient and Jarvis works perfectly, so I will just do whatever I can to help resolve the issue. :)

    Hardware decoding wise, there are the same but the "X" has [email protected]10bit and VP9.

    Yes, that was my first suspection... after changing settings, reboot, etc., I ended up making a HARD RESET and restored only ".kodi" directory..
    Please keep in mind I have not done the full backup procedure in SSH (a few pages back), only tried to restore the backup made by LibreELEC.


    That's strange, a VERY usefull feature like backup been broken in LibreELEC.
    Either way, I'm very satisfied with my 22 Euro T95X box and this LibreELEC - top notch!

  • I immediately noticed it, while watching Scarface. The intro has red on black titles, a perfect edge case for poor chroma scaling.
    But it's not nearly as noticeable during regular film frames.


    kszaq Am I right in assuming that the fractional framerate adjustment only works when using HW decoder?

  • HDMI-CEC isn't working with LE 7.0.3.012h / 7.95.beta6 (clean install, temp_sensor_disabled build). It worked flawlessly with earlier builds.

    I have no problem with HDMI-CEC with my Beelink M18 (using exactly the same build) and Toshiba TV though. Are you sure you turn on CEC on your TV as well?

  • Hi Guys,


    I have a chinese MXQ Pro 4k.
    On the SD card the LE is running without problems.
    I can't install to the nand flash


    What i have tried after that was to install "LibreELEC-S905.aarch64-7.0.2.006.zip" by using recovery boot.


    Now i am stuck, my device won't boot to LE 7.0.2, the last visible console message: can't acces tty; job control turned off.
    Booting to android recovery gives a lot of error's for al sorts of mount points
    I am still able to boot from SD and run LE from there.


    Can anyone help me to get LE running on the MXQ pro 4K? (S905)
    The CPU is a Amlogic S905 A53
    Thanks

    HDMI-CEC is working on android (M18 with Mbox name on the TV), but not with the latest LE builds. Can you send your LE settings for me?

  • Hello community


    Im running a nextbox A95X and have a video quality question.


    I have noticed a very slight quality drop on the same video when comparing playback between my laptop and media player(eliminating the file). The best way to explain the quality issue is a "masking" over semi static scenes. The effect looks like too much "photoshop smoothing" has been applied to peoples faces.


    Its very subtle so you dont see it all the time, however disabling hardware acceleration seems to improve it.


    Anyone with similar issues?
    Cheers
    Mark
