    My 3B has no problem with anything I have asked of it. You might give it a try without. My Pi 1B could not display TV without the codec license. Maybe I just don't watch difficult to display shows 1080P works fine, I don't have a 3D TV or a 4K TV, I think I tried a HEVC file that worked


    I have been using incorrect terms. You need a license to enable HARDWARE decoding. Software decoding doesn't need it

    Trying to mount a nfs drive in LE 9.2 on the RPi4.


    Followed the tut how to mount network drive and I have been successful before on Ubuntu. The systemd file is in the /storage/.config/system.d directory as the tut says.


    Systemctl claims the systemd file does not exist. I tried the complete path.


    /etc/systemd/system doesn't exist where I would put it in Ubuntu.


    The format and syntax of the unit are not the problem, systemctl can't find it to process it.

    Here it is anyway

    storage-NFSshare.mount

    [Unit]

    Description=nfs mount script

    Requires=network-online.service

    After=network-online.service

    Before=kodi.service



    [Mount]

    What=192.168.1.207/tv3

    Where=/storage/NFSshare

    Options=remount rw /storage/NFSshare

    Type=nfs



    [Install]

    WantedBy=multi-user.target

    Why do you need licenses for pi3 pi4? Mine work fine without. Only needed in the Dark Ages of pi1b maybe pi2 (don't recall on pi2 didn't have one).

    Something wrong with hardware decoding?

    Update:


    I have been fiddling with my config.txt this is what is working nicely with my old (2006) Polaroid 42 inch. Then in Kodi adjust the screen calibration.

    gpu_mem=320

    force_turbo-0

    hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080

    # I have no idea what 0xa5000080 means

    disable_overscan=1

    framebuffer_width=1920

    framebuffer_height=1080

    hdmi_force_hotplug=1

    hdmi_group=1

    hdmi_mode=16

    hdmi_ignore_cec=1

    dtparam=audio=on

    dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d

    max_framebuffers=2

    I am getting close to the solution. I got Raspbian working with the vc4-fkms-v3d overlay. Waiting for Amazon to deliver new SD cards.


    Raspbian problem was my TV thinks it is a monitor. Changed it to

    hdmi_ignore_edid=0xa5000080

    hdmi_group=2

    hdmi_mode=2

    dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d

    max_framebuffers=2

    and appropriate overscan settings for my monitor.


    Stay tuned for LE results.

    Used Etcher to write rpi4 9.1.002 to SD card

    disconnected network

    did the kernel install screen

    reboot got to LibreELEC splash and froze.


    Used Etcher to write RPI2 9.2 to SD card

    Booted on RPi 3

    copied rp14 9.1.002 to the update folder

    rebooted pi3

    it choked and crashed at the flash screen


    put that card in the pi4

    went directly to black screen.


    The same SD card got Raspbian installed after I commented the vc4-fkms-v3d overlay out. I also does boot rpi 2 9.2 on the pi3.

    The red light stays on all the time


    I ran across this is it relevant?

    vc4-fkms-v3d (Pi4 Graphics) - Raspberry Pi Forums


    I just ran get-edid, apparently my TV is so old it does not have an EDID. Maybe the problem?

    It expands the file system a works a bit until it gets to the reboot stage. On reboot it finds the tar in the update folder and updates and crashes.


    I tried stopping the reboot and deleting the tar, but it found it somewhere and updated and crashed.


    I'm getting a supply of SD cards tomorrow. I will try updating on the 3B and moving it to the 4B.

    No peripherals attached.

    Is 9.1.002 supposed to update itself to 9.2.0? Even after I deleted the tar from .update.

    What is vc4-fkms-v3d supposed to do? GoOgle says it was deprecated some time ago. Sounds like it is a 4k driver. Why is forced in the config?


    NOT resolved. Done for the evening.

    As a stupid person trick I tried the sd card in the old pi3B, it stopped at the same place but quicker.


    9.1.002 crashed to black screen. then on reboot upgraded itself and stopped on the splash again.


    I will look at the config.txt

    I have tried installing LE 9.2.0 using NOOBS, LE usb-sd creator, etcher.

    I can't get it to boot past the LE splash.


    To get it to work at all I had to modify config.txt to ignore distroconfig.txt and add some hdmi parameters; that gets it to resize the FS (on the first start) and get to the LE splash then freezes the red light is on steady, the green light is erratic for a few seconds then flashes regulary eventually goes off.


    I had to do similar things to config.txt to get Raspbian to boot. Seems that dtoverlay vc4-fkms-v3d is part of the problem.


    My TV is a 2006 Polaroid flat screen HD 1080i/1080p


    Any ideas?
