I've not tried it but I believe you can just drop the appropriate .dtb file in the Update folder as well as the LE .tar update then reboot.
that’s worked for me.
I tried that, nothing happened, and the file is still in the update folder. Tar file worked fine. With the dtb file nothing happens.
Yes it is pretty snappy now !
Bed time here.
Github tidy up tomorrow, then publish changes.
And I will then start a new thread for my optimised LE 8.2.4.x Kodi Krypton releases and play around with S905/S905X Krypton too - to finish up.
PS. Even 1080p 11Mbps 10bit H264 aka Hi10P Anime seems to be ffmpeg software decoding and playing back properly now after LE refresh switches. This might be a good sign for 1080p H264 Netflix with Leia on S912's and others. More testing needs to be done.
I haven't been around that long, still pretty unfamiliar with the update process of Libreelec. The subtitles patch i just dropped in the update folder, but how do I update the device tree?
In the following folder you should find a S912 Subtitles-ff.tar update that should fixup the Subtitles and GUI tearing when using slide animations as well (its uploading now):
The Kodi GUI should be smoother now and will still retain it's new found snappiness.
I've been testing with the Aeon-Nox Silvio Skin.
Remember to go into Kodi Settings > System > Display > Community Extras > Set GPU clock to 792MHz
A reminder there are also new S912 device trees needed for GPU Overclocking - found in the above linked folder.
That's amazing! And so fast, thank you! So if I have the GPU overcloc options in my GUI I don't need to update the device tree?
I'm also using Aeon Nox and the horizontal menu, and I can see tearing when sliding between the items, but it's no biggie, other than that everything is working great. Would I like to see it fixed? Sure! But I'm really grateful for all the work you guys put in and even if it never gets fixed, I'm fine with that! Cheers!
Can I use this patch om the 18.104.22.168 build, or do I need to update to 8.2.4?
Edit: updated to 8.2.4, and then applied the fix, seems to work! Maybe I misinterpreted what you said about VSYNC wrxtasy , but VSYNC doesn't seem to be enabled in the interface and not when a video is playing?
Woot! Gotta try this, I'm on 22.214.171.124, how do I apply this patch?
Yes because they have Gigabit ethernet which works well for high bitrate 4K HDR REMUX's with HD audio.
If you want quality buy the MINIX U9, see post #1 for the reasoning.
Basically it's superior hardware, especially it's thermal cooling and Wireless remote that has no issues switching the Box OFF / ON.
U9 is a snappy setup once you copy LE's data partition to faster internal eMMC storage.
Be aware you may encounter slight 4K HDR flickering with the current S912 LE 8.2.x from kszaq
The same as Vero 4K LG OLED users saw it this thread:
I know what the dithering fix is for it is, because it's in the newer AMLogic Linux Kernel.
Hey wrxtasy ! Any recent guide to move LE's data partition to internal eMMC storage? I'm running everything from SDCARD right now, but I'd love for my U9 to be even snappier.
Would I have to reinstall anything?
Edit: Would this guide still apply?
Just installed this on a Minix U9, everything's working except audio passthrough.
Since my receiver don't support HDR I have to connect the Minix directly to my TV, and then I'm using an optical cable to my receiver.
And the sound is working in Kodis GUI. I have three audio devices to choose from in "Audio output device" See below.
But down in passthrough, the audio device is greyed out, and I can't choose, HDMI is pre-chosen and I get no sound at all.
Just for the hell of it, I booted the Minix into Android and launched Kodi from there, and the only audio track available was "android audiotrack" on both regular audio device and passthrough device, and from there 5.1 passthrough is working!
I've also made sure not to enable Sync to display, since I know that disables the passthrough.
How can I get 5.1 passthrough working in Libreelec using an optical cable, since it working in Android on the same hardware it should work in Libreelec as well? Any ideas?
No difference between U9-H (official name) and U9.
People just are tired of writing the extra „-H“.
4K & HDR are really really good on the U9 with Libreelec Build modified by wrxtasy.
Alright, thanks! Is there any guide available how to choose the right image, and do people dual boot with android or delete Android altogether?
Ok, so I've been reading up which box to buy, but I'm a little bit confused.
So here's what I want the box to support.
* Libraelec support (obviously :D)
* HDR ( I have a Sony XE 9005)
* Auto resfresh rate switching
* Smooth interface in Kodi
* Fast Wifi
From what I've gathered the Minix U9 is shaping up to be a great contender. It seems to have all of the above?
Can anyone tell me the difference between the U9 och U9H?
