[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.2 for S905/S905X

  • blakey

    Thanks for that understand where you are coming from now - just updated the box and it works perfectly.


    Thanks for the prompt and very helpful responses.:)

  • . The tuner worked only on 1 of the 2 ports - the left front one. And I then tried mounting a USB thumb drive into the left back port - without any success.


    Bottom line is that 1 of the 2 USB ports does not seem to function, not to mount a USB drive, nor as a port for USB TV tuner. When I insert a USB drive, the drive light flashes but the drive is not mounted


    I can not help you but have similar results on my Mecool M8S Pro Plus with stock Android 7.1.1 LibreElec was installed along with the files wrxtasy provided. I have no problems using the front USB port but get nothing using the rear usb port.

  • 8.1.9 uploaded and posted in OP. It's another small weekly release with, also including latest improvements from LibreELEC Team.


    The most significant change is a fix for S905D/S905X performance regression that made it slower by 20% (CPU going only up to 1.2GHz instead of 1.5GHz). S905 is not affected.


    I am more busy than usual with "real life" stuff so updates will slow down a bit.

  • kszaq, I wouldn't call a 20% speed gain 'small'. ;)


    Just out of curiosity, was there anything worthwhile in my debug logs regarding my startup issue?

    If it ain't broken: break it, fix it, repeat

  • Is there ever any benefit of flashing newer manufacturer supplied firmwares for TV boxes, then coming back to LE? Do they fix any issues that LE can't? I notice the KI Pro gets the occasional update supplied over @ Mecool KI PRO Hybrid Android TV Box with Amlogic S905D SoC, DVB-T2 & DVB-S2 Tuners Sells for $80. The most recent is date September 5th and I think my box came with one dated some time in Aprril or May.

    If you install libreelec to sd or usb, you can compare the two

    Samsung RU7400 Onkyo HTX22HDX Nvidia Shield HD Homerun Duo (Living Room)

    Samsung UE40ES5500 H96 Pro (Coreelec), Fire TV 4K Stick (Bedroom)

    Synology DS414 Plex Pass

    I was meaning more do the manufacturer updates fix anything in the partitions that the LE install doesn't touch, the under the hood type stuff. Like in the bootloader, etc.

  • Hi.

    Anybody know how to disable NTP for setting the time? A car killed our internet distribution point... 10 days no internet. And without internet, NTP don't work.. and without NTP the box starts at 0:00 and with wrong date.. no big problem you think? It is a Problem.. cause due to this wrong date/time, my epg from TVHeadend Plugin don't work..

    Thx guys..

    If you have a windows machine in your network, I think you can use it as a NTP server ;)

  • Good idea.. but where to change in gui?

    Edit:

    First install NTP service on windows machine

    You can set NTP server IP(windows machine) in network settings(Kodi)
