    I removed prefill patch.

  • This fix is not included in 8.0.1e, please look at git tag. It's the only thing you need for correct fractional frame rates, other changes in devel build are audio-related things that I'm testing.

  • Hi afl1: i cant see any WiFi networks with your latest build. is it me or anyone else facing the same issue ?

    i tried kszaq"s latest build also. same result. what am i doing wrong ? only wired connection is working... any clue for my problem ?

  • Hi,
    I am trying to compile from source :


    1. I got the source using :
    git clone -b 8.0.1b GitHub - afl1/LibreELEC.tv: 'Just enough OS' for Kodi (btw, is that the right branch to get ?)


    2. I build (on Ubuntu 16.04 64 bits) :
    PROJECT=S905 ARCH=arm make image


    I get the following error in package "media_build"

    It seems that patches from "media_build" cant' be applied.
    Even if I remove that specific patch, I get the same error with next patch file.


    Thanks

  • Hi,


    Can we control the blue LED from K II Pro ?
    It's a little bit too bright for my eyes :D


    Some "echo 0 > /sys/.. or /dev/" ?


    Thank you!

    My builds are following kszaq's versions. Only difference is support for internal dvb driver. WiFi issue was introduced by kszaq and he have to fix it. For now you can use previous versions.

    Media_build has non standard build procedure. There is some kind of caching causing issue to apply patches.
    Try to manually clean media_build:
    PROJECT=S905 ARCH=arm scripts/clean media_build
    and then:
    PROJECT=S905 ARCH=arm make image

  • Hi, my blue LED doesn't work - after 4 months continously work :) red is ok but blue isnt :)
    KI :)

  • Hi guys,


    is there still a general problem with suspend mode or is it just my device (KII pro) ?
    When I change to suspend mode the device turns off, the red LED shines and after I start it again the LED turns blue but there is no signal and no reaction any more. This would be a nice feature for planned records. Actually the box runs day and night but this can't be the regular way of use.



  • I already tried that. I even cleaned everything and did a fresh git clone. I have the same problem with branch 7.95.beta6 :(


    Looking at the error, there is something strange :


    APPLY PATCH (project) /home/nabil/LIBREELEC/AFL/8.0.1b/LibreELEC.tv/projects/S905/patches/media_build/media_build-fix.patch

    File to patch:


    The path in the patch file shouldn't be /media_build/v4l/compat.h. It should be /v4l/compat.h.


    So I solved it by manually editing these 2 patch files :


    projects/S905/patches/media_build/media_build-fix.patch
    projects/S905/patches/media_build/media_build-frame_vector_workaround.patch

    The issue is in resume addons, e.g. tvheadend and oscam. I tried to fix it via suspend/resume script, but with intermittent success. I recommend don't power-off box, only stop playing channel. In inactivity box goes after a while to power saving mode with low power consumption.

    Sorry, I forgot update them.

  • Hi,


    My K II Pro is freezing nearly every time I use it.
    This is the screen when the box kills itself, and as you can see on the MUTE symbol from my TV,
    there is a really annoying crackling sound, when this screen shows.



    There is no SSH access possible, when the box does this.
    So no log :-(


    I've installed the newest build to NAND/eMMC, but used the dtb from "For KII Pro replace device tree blob (dtb.img) with KII_Pro.zip", because there was no hint which dtb to use with 8.0.1e for KII Pro?
    Should I update the DTB somehow?!

  • Hi,


    In all my tests I always installed LibreELEC by creating an Amlogic update package :
    PROJECT=S905 ARCH=arm make amlpkg


    It gives me a xxx-update.zip file
    Here is how I install it :
    - I put this zip file on a SD card
    - I boot the box to recovery (toothpick method)
    - I get this screen (see attachment)
    - I then go to "Update from EXT" and I select the zip file from the SD card


    It works but I see that this procedure is not documented in thread-5556.html


    So I tried the suggested way, but I can't get a working bootable SD card. Here is what I did :


    1. I build everything by using PROJECT=S905 ARCH=arm make image
    2. I found a xxx.img.gz in the target folder
    3. I launch Rufus on a PC and select this xxx.img.gz
    4. I put the SD card in my K1 Plus (I am using VideoStrong K1 Plus)
    5. I use the toothpick method


    It doesn't work, I can't boot on the SD card. I see the boot logo and then it enters the recovery menu (same as picture in attachment). I tried that hundred times, no matter what I do, it always enters the recovery menu with the toothpick method and never boots from my SD card :(


    In thread-5556.html , there is a paragraph mentioning that I should put a dtb.img at the root of the SD card :

    Quote


    Download a device tree as instructed above and rename it to dtb.img. Copy the renamed file to main folder of SD card/USB drive - replace the one that's already there


    Is this still true for AFL1 builds ? Can I take them from Index of /s905/device_trees/ ?



    Thanks
