    Hello forum,

    compare to my first attempt, a newer build for Odroid C2 is now available: LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.arm-9.0.2.img.gz


    Which DVB-T2 sticks are supported with this build now? [I consider to buy a new one]

    Is it only the few mentioned in here for Kernel 3.14. or are there more?

    How can I find out, or does one of you know?


    The DVB stick mentioned here seems very attractive. Is there a way to make it work on Odroid for DVB-T2?


    Thanks again for your kind support

    Hello Iridium, thank you for your response:

    Please provide a full debug log.

    I restarted Libreelec and then I tried to install the Network-Tool addon.

    Find the full log here: http://sprunge.us/cdvblb


    Almost self explaining this line there:

    Code
    1. 20:30:47.851 T:4027573152 ERROR: CCurlFile::Open failed with code 404 for https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Raybuntu/rb-addons/master/addons/8.1/Odroid_C2/arm/virtual.network-tools/virtual.network-tools-8.1.100.zip

    And yes, there is no content anymore in

    Code
    1. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Raybuntu

    My version of Libreelec Addon is 9.0.0


    Doing some Internet research, I found a zip file here, which seems to match:

    virtual.network-tools


    Is it possible, to install this manually?

    Hello forum,


    I am running LibreELEC (wrxtasy-raybuntu-media_build) Version: 8.0 on my Odroid C2

    I need to install rsync to backup pictures from LibreElec to my backup server.


    I searched in addons for "rsync" and I found "Network Tools 8.1.100 from libreelec.tv".

    Unfortunately installation failed without further information.


    Any possibilities to install rsync?


    Thanks for your kind support

    Thanks for the hint, but unfortunately I have not enough resources (in time and knowledge) to understand the mentioned process which sounds fairly new to me :/.


    So I decided to jump back to my initial installation (which I fully backed up before I tried the upgrade).

    Now I am back to where I started and - at least - I can watch and record TV.


    One day I may give it another try ;)

    Thanks, the systems is booting again.


    I took me a while, as tune2fs was not available in the "debug shell" (busybox?). So I transferred the binary of tune2fs on a usb pendrive and executed it from there ;)


    Then I rebooted a few times and checked, that Addons for Tvheadend Server and Clients are updated.


    I finally logged into Tvheadend via LAN but still not DVB-stick is offered (only Fritzbox interfaces).


    Find my Kodi-logfile here: http://ix.io/1nkp

    Find my dmesg-log here: http://ix.io/1nr2

    Find the output of lsmod: http://ix.io/1nrv


    now, Tvheadend Server does not respond to client vial LAN, but ssh is still working.

    Kodi-log for this situation: http://ix.io/1nxh


    What to do next?

    Hello and thank you for your support,


    I have transferred LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.arm-8.90.006.img.gz to /storage/.update. I have also added .nocompat to the folder. The I rebooted and watched the attached screen (TV). Here is the output:


    Step 1: Upgrade looked ok:


    Step 2: Message after reboot: "Starting debugging shell [???] step. mount_storage... type exit to quit"

    System stopped here, so I typed "exit".


    Step 3: Debug message:
    "mounting /storage on /sysroot/storage failed: Invalid argument"
    "Failed to start machine-id"

    [...]


    System does not respond, except to reboot via Ctrl.-Alt.-Del.

    No ssh access, only local keyboard and TV-screen ...


    Thanks for helping me to understand this situation

    Hello forum,


    I haven an Odroid C2 and ~1 year ago I followed the instruction of Melibokus to set up a PVR for German DVB-T2. As recommended, I installed LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.arm-8.0.WRX-RB-Media_build.01.img.gz to get my DVB-T2 stick working (Geniatech T230C).

    It worked for 1 year.

    Recently I updated to LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.aarch64-8.2.5.img.gz. The system is booting and basically working, all addons are updated. But I still receive error messages when I activate TV: "No TV adapter available".


    When I check lsusb I receive:



    where Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0572:c689 Conexant Systems (Rockwell), Inc. seems to be the DVB-T2 stick.

    But when I check the kernel modules, I am not sure, if the relevant module has loaded:


    When I log into Tvheadend with my browser (http://libreelec:9981/) I can only see the integrated cable tuners(?) of my Fritzbox:



    (but as the cable provider has installed a hardware filter, that blocks all TV frequencies, I can not receive any signals via cable - only DVT-T2)


    My questions:

    1. Is there a kernel issue that prevents my DVB-T2 stick from working or is it something different?
    2. If it is a kernel (driver) issue, how could I solve it?
    3. Or should I go back to LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.arm-8.0.WRX-RB-Media_build.01.img.gz which contains the necessary support for my DVB-T2 stick already?

    Thanks for your help

    It's all about KEYDB.cfg .. find a newer one and things might work.

    Currently, the latest KEYDB.cfg (what I could find) is dated of 2017-03-19. The link mentioned in the header (aacs) is not maintained at the moment.


    So playback of Bluray and Linux (if it depends on a working KEYDB.cfg) is dead at the moment.

    I will watch this subject and I will get back, when there are any news...


    regards

    What I also found out recently:

    1. For bluray "No Turning Back" I could not find a key in KEYDB.cfg. This might be a reason for not playing this bluray
    2. When I tested bluray "The Book Thief" again a few days ago on my laptop (VLC) using the Odroid drive, I received messages like "Blu-ray error: AACS Host certificate revoked?"
      I wonder, if this is a correct message and if so, could this be caused by inserting "No Turning Back" bluray previously? (but both blurays are issued 2014)

    I am not able to prove my suspicion, but maybe one of you can compile this to a whole picture....

    Thanks for your attention to my issue. I did some further investigation (got a second Bluray disk) and collected a comprehensive log file from /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi.log (find attached)


    What I did:

    1. rebooted the system
    2. inserted Bluray disk I and try to playback via Disk menu (-> failed)
    3. inserted Bluray disk II and try to playback via Disk menu (-> failed)
    4. inserted DVD and try to playback via Disk menu (-> ok)
    5. inserted Bluray disk I and try to playback via Video menu (-> failed)
    6. inserted Bluray disk II and try to playback via Video menu (-> failed)

    I have marked these events in the logfile (partly stripped) with ==== Notes ====

    I also attached the full output of dmesg, maybe this contains some hints...


    I hope this helps to find out, what is wrong or missing on my system


    Still very thankful for your great support

      (123.85 kB, downloaded 425 times, last: )

    Thanks 2re for your support. I did some further investigations. These are the results:


    1. Playback of Blu-ray disk on my laptop:

    - drive connected via USB split cable into two ports of laptop

    - same disk

    - same .cfg file

    - playback via VLC

    result:

    - playback works - although it takes ~15 seconds to start


    2. Playback of DVD on Kodi

    - drive connected via USB split cable into two ports of Odroid C2

    - setting of forced region code of DVD player: off

    - insert DVD and close tray

    result:

    - drive spins up

    - Kodi main menu shows "Disc"

    - Kodi shows popup message in upper right corner like "removeable media mounted" [in German] and title of DVD

    - in main window of "Disc" it shows - DVD - [next line:] - playback Disc - open/close

    - I can click playback and it starts


    3. Playback of Blu-ray on Kodi

    - drive connected via USB split cable into two ports of Odroid C2

    - same .cfg file as on laptop

    - region code of Blu-ray set to: B [Europe/Germany] - other regions setting tested as well

    - Insert Blu-ray and close tray

    result:

    - drive spins up

    - Kodi main menu shows "Disk"

    - Kodi does not show pop-up message in upper right corner

    - in main window of "Disc" it shows - open - [next line:] - playback Disc - open/close

    - If I click playback nothing happens

    - after ~15 seconds disk stops spinning


    Summery (my thoughts):


    What seems to be working:

    - Blu-ray

    - Blu-ray drive

    - .cfg file


    What is suspicious:

    - no pop-up message after closing drive with Blu-ray

    - massage in "Disc" window are different: "open" [Blu-ray inserted] vs. "DVD" [DVD inserted]


    Does this help to trace the issue?


    Thanks again for your help

    the source of the "official" keydb is down for some reason

    so all links are down too :/

    Yes, I see.

    Maybe someone can compare, if vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/files provides the same KEYDB,cfg file as "the official server"? At least at the headline of my KEYDB,cfg it says


    "server: aacs"


    Additionally, I may investigate this issue further on my system.

    • Is there a way to receive any debug messages or log files?
    • Or can I execute the Blu Ray player via ssh command-line, so it returns some status information when it starts (and fails)?

    mkdir -p /storage/.config/aacs && curl KEYDB.cfg -o /storage/.config/aacs/KEYDB.cfg

    This did not work for me. The KEYDB.cfg file does not contain any keys, instead it shows an error message of a not resolved URL:

    HTML
    1. <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
    2. <html><head>
    3. <title>404 Not Found</title>
    4. </head><body>
    5. <h1>Not Found</h1>
    6. <p>The requested URL /aacs/KEYDB.cfg was not found on this server.</p>
    7. <hr>
    8. <address>Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at www.labdv.com Port 80</address>
    9. </body></html>


    So instead I executed

    Code
    1. mkdir -p /storage/.config/aacs && curl http://vlc-bluray.whoknowsmy.name/files/KEYDB.cfg -o /storage/.config/aacs/KEYDB.cfg

    This gave me a file with reasonable size and the KEYDB.cfg apparently contains key information:

    What I wonder:


    1. is my KEYDB.cfg the correct file? If not, where can I receive the correct one?

    2. If this is the correct KEYDB.cfg, what am I missing/doing wrong?


    Thanks for your kind help

    Hello Forum,


    My system:

    Odrodid C2 with with LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.arm-8.0.WRX-RB-Media_build.01

    Attached devices via USB: 1 HDD, 1 DVD/Blu Ray player, DVB-T2-stick


    As I would like to playback Blu Rays, I followed the instruction here blu-ray [LibreELEC], which says that I only have to install KEYDB.cfg. As the mentioned link does not work, I got KEYDB.cfg from here: KEYDB.cfg.


    When I insert a Blu Ray, the drive spins up and the Kodi menu shows "Disk". When I click "playback disk", the drive spins up again, but the movie does not start. Nothing changes at the screen (TV via HDMI), no error messages.


    Playback of DVDs works without problems.


    What can I do, to trace the reason for this result?

    Where can I see logs/error messages?

    Any ideas?


    Thanks for any help and regards

    Hello forum,


    I am using LibreELEC-Odroid_C2.arm-8.0.WRX-RB-Media_build.01 on an Ordroid C2. To record TV broadcasts I connected an USB-HD-drive (Intenso Memory Station 1 TB). The HDD is preformated with ntfs.


    Is this file system ok for files > 20 GB or should I re-format it to a Linux specific file system?


    Thanks for your hints
