    HEVC does not play on RetroELEC-RPi4.arm-9.2-devel-20200430025740.


    Full logs attached.

    Boots to Kodi but does not accept any input from my flirc (should be recognized as a usb hid) or from yatse (android remote app for kodi). Though, using yatse, I was able to get videos to play. When a video is playing, there is no sound.


    Logs attached.


    I tried the new RPi2 version but I have the same issue. I see the RetroELEC logo which freezes after 4/5 minutes. When I use the arrow buttons I can see a command line which sais "Starting debugging shell for boot step: mount_storage... type exit to quit"

    There seem to be some existing issues with RPi2.


    escalade, any chance you still have RetroELEC-RPi2.arm-9.2-devel-20200208153230-28eddc2.img available? If not, would you mind if I posted it for Bub4 to test out? Since that one seemed to work for me when I tested it previously.

    Hi,


    Thank you very much for your hard work!! I need a little help to begin. I have a RPi 3b+. So which version should I use? RPi2 or RPi4? I tried both, and both hang during booting at the RertoELEC logo. So I guess there is no working image with RPi3b+...?


    Thanks!

    RPi2 is for RPi2/3/3+ as they are more or less built on the same architecture.


    I had an earlier version working properly with my RPi2 (specifically RetroELEC-RPi2.arm-9.2-devel-20200208153230-28eddc2.img). I likely have some time today to test out the latest version that escalade has posted.

    RPi2 seems to be mostly working fine. I noticed one error about sdio on the terminal/console display when I would switch between Kodi and ES.

    Browser initially crashed but then worked the second time. Its god awfully slow on Pi2 (as I would expect).

    ES works correctly.

    Retroarch good. Though I only tested one NES rom for now.

    I tried playing a 1080p video that wasn't running at full speed. I thought the Pi2 handled h264 decode in hardware but maybe I'm remembering incorrectly.


    Logs attached.

    I can't see any issue actually, looks like RetroArch exits cleanly after starting. I have uploaded a build that I think will fix it :)

    Wifi appears to be working.

    glcore appears to be working.

    Retroarch exits to kodi as expected.


    I tested out a variety of shaders. Many work at full speed. Some make games unplayable dropping as low as 15-20 FPS on SNES games. crt-frutbunn runs about 58 fps in SMW and Yoshi's Island. Playable but very slightly degraded from 60fps.


    This is the image that I am going to keep until you have new improvements. :-) Prior to this I was still using a 1/26 build.


    I'll probably take a look at RPi2/3/3+ soon.

    Ok, I’ve reverted the kernel to 5.4 branch same as LE master, perhaps the 5.5 branch isn’t quite ready yet. Just uploaded, let me know how it goes.

    Kodi boots again.

    Wifi appears to be corrected.

    When quitting retroarch, it still closes and then restarts without going to Kodi.


    What I think is the relevant log snippet from "journalctl --no-pager -b -0" below, full log attached.

    I synced up the brcmfmac_sdio-firmware-rpi from master and updated to the recently updated 5.5.0 kernel, could someone test the latest RPi4?

    Kodi goes into a crash loop. The screen goes from "waiting on Network to come online ..." to a blank screen, and then continuously repeats.


    Logs attached.

    When I review the video settings in retroarch, glcore is selected. If I change to a different driver (e.g. gl) in the UI then I cannot select glcore again.


    As far as I know, glcore is the current driver. Is this something that can be confirmed via the log files?


    I found this in the attached logs (this is from retroarch):

    So that explains not finding the slang shaders. I suspect that not finding glcore also means degraded performance.



    Bard I'll check if wifi is working on my Pi4 when I get back home. I've been using ethernet so I never reviewed wifi before.

    I have no options in RetroELEC settings for Wifi. So it would seem that in RPi4.arm-devel-20200126145032-28eddc2, the RPi4 wifi is not recognized.


    Exiting Retroarch results in Retroarch closing and then immediately reopening in both RetroELEC-RPi4.arm-9.2-devel-20200128073910-28eddc2.img and RetroELEC-RPi4.arm-9.2-devel-20200130140619-28eddc2.img.

    The slang shaders requires either the glcore or vulkan driver. Check that you are using glcore, which should be selected automatically by the retroarch.sh script. With the gl driver only glsl shaders would be visible.

    When I review the video settings in retroarch, glcore is selected. If I change to a different driver (e.g. gl) in the UI then I cannot select glcore again.
