[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.2 for S905/S905X

  • Can anyone point me in the direction of querying via SSH (Libreelec) so I can find out exactly what this card is in order to find a driver for it?

    You can check what chip you have by running

    Code
    Code:
    udevadm info /sys/bus/sdio/devices/sdio*


    To get a list of Android kernel modules:

    Code
    Code:
    mkdir -p /tmp/system
    mount /dev/system /tmp/system
    find /tmp/system -name *.ko
  • The only device udevadm returns is a AP5255 wireless chip. 3 separate devices, same id.


    Going through the sys folder the network card is in the /sys/bus/mdio_bus/devices folder. It's stmmac-0:08. Phy_id = 0x01814400. Dmesg says

    [ [email protected]] eth0: PHY ID 01814400 at 8 IRQ 41 (stmmac-0:08) active.


    Android recognises the device the same way.

  • 100Mbps is not enough for reliable streaming of "4K movies/series".

    100Mbps is more than enough for streaming 4k (Netflix maxes out at 15Mbps for 4k tv/movies) it will struggle with some 4k bluray rips

  • Its certainly enough to stream remuxes of every movie released on UHD bluray so far. There will obviously come a point when that isn't so, but 100mbit is fine ATM.

    No, it isn't. You can't watch a UHD BD folder structure with 100mbit.

    No, it was tested and reported in this forum - 100MBit is not enough(most cases)

  • No, it was tested and reported in this forum - 100MBit is not enough(most cases)

    I've tested it myself, with Goodfellas - the largest movie I've remuxed (75mbit video, 5mbit audio) and advancedsettings.xml cache <memorysize> set to 1405000000 (same as I set on all my 2gb ram devices), via a NFS mounted share on a MiniM8SII 100mbit NIC box and watched the entire movie without problems.


    Mediainfo of that file attached:


    100mbit is fine, for now. I expect that to change in the coming years, but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.

  • Try John Wick Chapter 2. It's ~95 Mbps.

    I made a crosscheck.

    S905X box using internal 100MBit and external USB Gb

    NFS share OS mount.


    Results:

    100Mbit - stuttering

    1Gb - smooth


    Conclusion:

    My S905X box has a bad internal ethernet interface :/

    My external USB 1Gb adapter is working well

  • her


    It hits 90Mbps at places, and didn't play that smooth for me, also from an NFS share.

    I guess you could mitigate the issue somewhat by creating a large buffer, but it doesn't always help, at least in my personal experience.


    My conclusion is identical to Tim's. My S905X box also has a USB 1Gbit Ethernet.
