    It used to be that you ssh in, then type installtointernal on some devices you have to do it twice.

  • Hello, I have mxq pro + with 2GB RAM and 16 GB Flash

    When I do installtointernal every time I have only MXQ PRO + start screen and that's all.

    Which dtb file should I use ? Proc name is s905x013 .Orginally there was Android 7.1


    LibreELEC:~ # installtointernal

    This script will erase BOOT, SYSTEM, DATA and DTB on your device

    and install LE that you booted from SD card/USB drive.


    It will create a backup of device tree and recovery partition on your boot media.


    The script does not have any safeguards!


    Type "yes" if you know what you are doing or anything else to exit: yes

    Backing up device tree...done.

    Backing up recovery partition...done.

    Regards,

  • Try the one which works with your SD card. It should be the same.

    What are the error messages with the script?

  • when sd card is inside it works , when I remove SD card it throw error about super-block etc..


    how can I use dtb.img to internal ?


    another problem is with remote . it does not work even I copy remote.conf to /storage/.config and restart .


    with SD card it does not see internal partition . Why ?

  • On some devices you have to run installtointernal twice.


    If it doesn't work, perhaps the nand is kaput.


    But then as you will have read, it is not recommended to install to internal.


    you might need to restore the original android to the nand

    install to internal twice in one start or install reboot and then install to internal again ?


    oh, and how to calibrate screen ? i tried in kodi settings but with no success ,

  • install reboot and then install to internal again


    then read the links regarding the remote (oops) wrong post


    search for the instructions regarding installing remote

  • Managed to install on my MXQ Pro 4K box to internal storage :) (happy!)...


    Just out of curiosity, since the remote turning on doesn't work, what do the people generally do for turning the boxes on/off? I can turn it off with the remote but not turn it on, then I have to take out the power cord and plu it back in which is a tad impractical....


    Thanx!

    Why turn it off?

  • Hello, I happily use Libreelec from some time, and now decided to buy another Amlogic tv box for my bedroom tv, an old Samsung Lcd 26''. I have a very little problem, but if I can solve it my installation would be perfect. When I turn on the tv box, the tv screen remains black and there's an error message: "Mode not supported" till it loads Kodi, then after it , it works perfectly. I don't see the X96 Mini splash screen and the Libreelec logo that load before Kodi. I checked on another newer tv and on that tv the boot is perfect, there are no errors. So maybe the problem is about the old tv resolution in boot sequence...


    I give some details:


    Tv Box X96 Mini 1 gb ram 8 gb

    Libreelec 8.2.3.1 S905

    Tv Samsung LCD model LE26R51B A

  • You can try to set HDMI mode via SSH

    Example

    fw_setenv hdmimode 1080p60hz

    If Your TV only support 720p try fw_setenv hdmimode 720p60hz

  • I mean set it to standby... why leave it running, it consumes power and probably components wear off...

    The power consumption is minimal for these low powered boxes. I do turn off my desktop computer when not in use, because it does draw a lot of power, but more importantly, all those fans running sucks all the dust into the computer.


    Years, ago, the theory was that powering off and on did more damage to electronics than leaving them powered on.
