[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.2 for S905/S905X


  • What's the status with the extra icons (play, ethernet, wifi, etc)? Have you made them work yet? Do I need to install a service?

    In version 8.90.3 I have installed the service addon whick enable extra icons

    Dont´t know whats about version 8.2.3.1

  • Just installed 8.2.3.1 on my Tanix TX3 Mini, inkl. the DTB that makes the Display working.

    Now i only have on problem. It is possible to boot the Box via the power button on the remote but in Kodi the remote is not working.

    Have i missed a step?

  • Works ok, thanks!

    Doesn"t work a TX3 Mini so far. Tried 8.90.3 and 8.2.3.1, no luck, only the clock is visible (on 8.90.3 is something strange with installed icons) but Multi CH PCM with that dtb is sizzling under original sound, with normal dtb from S905X no issue with sound but display shows "boot".

    Solved it. I had to get a suitable remote.conf from a thread here in the forum. Put it into /storage/.config now the remote works.

    You need to install fd628 service via add-ons for extra icons, it's only available in 8.90 builds


    Sounds like your box is too hot if it is sizzling

    Not too hot, 53°C and everything is fine except LPCM with that TX3Mini dtb is wrong, with dtb for S905X is good, no sizzling.

    Doesn"t work for me extra icons on TX3 Mini with 8.90 builds. I posted my first impression with that on related topic.

  • updated 64bit image with some addons built from kszaq 8.2.3.1 git tag to LE – Google Drive

    Hello everybody,


    Can someone tell me what is better to use?

    I am now running LE 8.2.3.1 from KSZAQ with no problems

    The version for the 905 or the aarch64 for my system?

    My system is A Coolwell V5 with an S905X processor and 1gb of RAM

    And if I use the 64 bit image how do I install the addons?

    Greetings Herman

    I was being sarcastic in reference to your box sizzling.


    Your 100% doing something wrong then I own the TX3 Mini myself and I know for certain it works and multiple other people have confirmed it works also.

    Okay, explain me, why is good LPCM 7.1 output with the dtb for S905X and wrong with dtb for TX3 Mini? Which dtb is good for TX3 mini? I have 4 Amlogic boxes, setup is the same, everything is same only what I change for optimal use is the device tree. My opinion is something wrong with that dtb from your releases page for TX3 mini.

  • This simply means that I will no longer work on these builds. I might release an update to 8.2.3 but without any additional Amlogic-specific updates or improvements.


    I am currently working on improving Amlogic support in LibreELEC and Kodi master.

    mmm...sounds not good for us.

    What do you mean for "improving Amlogic support in LibreELEC"?

    Thanks

  • Before you ask you should read back a little...

    I can not reproduce your issue, I tried this morning and again just now, I think your problem is PEBKAC and I don't think you understand what a device tree is for... the difference is a few lines of code which define which GPIO pins the display is wired into and nothing more than that, if you heard hissing or sizzling on all audio outputs then I would agree with you that something may be wrong but this appears not to be the case from what you are describing.


    There is many users who are using this and you are the only one that it is creating issues for.


    Post your exact steps of exactly what you are doing and upload a short sample of the video in question.

  • Hello,


    I have problem on X96 box (s905x). Libreelec 8.2.2.3.

    After starts Kodi 17.6, the wired connection is on status READY.

    Online video can´t be stream.

    When I manualy click to wired connection and do disconnect and then connect - all is ok and video stream can be playable.
