[8.0.2e] LibreELEC 8.0 for S905/S905X

  • I'm sure that it was discussed somewhere but I did not find it. How to make bluetooth work for the k1 plus? Turning of the wifi from within kodi does not work.


  • just guessing: tool is invoked as

    Code
    $ROOT/tools/dtbTool/dtbTool -o arch/$TARGET_KERNEL_ARCH/boot/dtb.img -p scripts/dtc/arch/$TARGET_KERNEL_ARCH/boot/dts/amlogic/


    maybe some if the command line argument files is missing?

  • Hi, I have the exact same problem so +1 from me..

  • kszaq - I think there's an issue with LE releasing the USB ports (if that's possible).
    I have a USB keyboard that indicates it is searching for it's receiver as soon as LE is restarted (LED flashes) and pairs just after the boot screen.
    When I reboot to the internal Android installation, the search does not begin and, consequently, once Android boots the keyboard is not detected until I un/replug the USB receiver.
    If you need logs to look into this, please advise how I should obtain them for you.


    In the mean time, I will continue to 'rollback' the LE build in an attempt to discover when this issue first arose


    EDIT: This issue was only noticed after changing the TV attached to the box (X96 S905X 2/16GB) but, surely, that can't affect whether a USB device is detected?

  • Poida: During the reboot, the bootloader regains control of the box. I do not think there is anything that libreelec can do differently at this point. Have you tried what happens if you reboot from Android into Android (without libreelec sd card)?

  • Have you tried what happens if you reboot from Android into Android


    Detects the Keyboard, no problem.


    I'm looking for a startup script that I could run at Android boot to reinitialize the USB ports, I don't use Android much at all.
    It's just an irritation, since everything worked fine until I changed TV's (but that doesn't make sense)

  • I found a workaround for the crashing IPTV streams. My IPTV provider (Zattoo) provides streams with 50fps.


    Hardware acceleration is on.


    In the player settings I set:
    Adjust display refresh rate: Off
    Sync playback to display: On


    In System setting I set:
    Refresh rate: 60


    It appears that the additional transcoding from 50fps to 60fps is preventing the stream from freezing.

  • First thank you for this great release of Libreelec for the S905x.
    I have a M8S II with S905x.


    Unfortuately, I have two remaining issues with it:
    1) After reebok the picture is darker.
    Only after a video file was played it seems to be normal again. Can this be fixed?
    It is annoying to do that after every reboot.
    If this is a bug with the S905x then all should have this problem?


    2) Under Settings-->System-->Display I can't change the refresh rate.
    It is greyed out at 60 Hz. Therefore the refresh rate update doesn't work and 24p movies are still played at 60hz.
    Apparently one device in my HDMI chain "reports" it can only do 60Hz (It is a HDMI2AV Converter for Ambilight).
    So if I unplug that device and reboot everything is back to normal and dynamic refresh rate update works. Then I plug the HDMI2AV converter again and it still works with 24p. So it seems the device can handle 24, but just "reports" wrong to Kodi.
    So is it possible to disable the "refresh rate detection" of Kodi? All my devices can handle 24p but Kodi still thinks they cannot.


    Thanks for your help!

  • Hello,
    I have since yesterday the "Beelink M18 Adroid TV Box".
    Who can tell me what Devicetree would be the right one?


    There should not be any, I would be interested in how I do
    It can read from the stock firmware (or the M18)
    To give them kszaq to convert ....


    Thanks a lot ...
    Tommy

    Hi kostaman, I have the M18 and have been using gxbb_p200_2G_1Gbit.dtb. I haven't had any glaring issues, other than persistent sync issues with audio. Is there a reason why you have indicated the OTG port version?

    You need todo sudo apt-get install g++-multilib
    The same problem happend to me, they explain overhere - OPENELEC Minix X8/-H/ Plus | Page 52 | MINIX Forum - Official
    Now it builds just fine :)

    I have to say that with the OTG version here everything to my full satisfaction runs. So I can only say: Thanks @ kostaman!


  • 1) After reebok the picture is darker.

    Known limitation/bug, see first post. Can be worked around by configuring kodi to play a file on startup. Nobody really cares, because even the first video is played fine.

    Libreelec/Kodi does everything right. If it offers resolutions/refresh rates that your display cannot show, you might be left with a black screen and no way to go back!


    Workaround for your buggy hdmi device: The linux kernel reads the display information from hdmi and provides it to kodi through a sys node. You can replace this node with a file, as described here: thread-1564-post-23856.html


    Be advised that this should be done only if you understand basic command line use and have some idea about how linux works.

    Hello,
    How is this to happen if LE has no sudo and / or apt-get?
    Who tells me how I could still use this dtb tool?
    Because in principle, I'd like to use the ORIGINALE DTB, which was converted to LE ...


  • i also figured out that in libreelec 7.0.2.009 is faster in channel switching then in last jarvis libreelec version for like a second just for info... might help for krypton too

  • Hello. Thank you for your work kszaq !


    I am using 8.0.0g and when I try to open some videos I get:
    22:47:02.301 T:3565122464 ERROR: CAMLCodec::OpenAmlVideo - cannot open V4L amlvideo device /dev/video10: Device or resource busy


    This doesn't happen if I disable hardware acceleration but then all 1080p videos get unplayable.


    It seems it happens when the videos I am trying to open consist of TS fragments delivered by m3u8 playlist.


    Anyone else has this problem ?


    Edit: attached kodi.log from start to the point where kodi should start playing but instead it remains in the menu UI.
