    Hi thank you for your reply.

    I already have MariDB installed on my current NAS to synchronise my metadata and watched status across my numerous Kodi install.

    The plan for the RPi-4B was to boot from the microsd card I have coreELEC installed on (SanDisk Extreme Pro 128GB microSDXC Memory Card + SD Adapter with A2 App Performance + Rescue Pro Deluxe 170MB/s Class 10, UHS-I, U3, V30) with write speed of 90mb/s. The SSD now are fairly cheap any way so I could always upgrade moving forward if the need is there.

    The only benefit I see with Plex is that I can install Plex app directly onto the TV (no need to buy further hardware) or onto the computer.

    With my Wetek Hub no longer supported moving forward, I have either the choice to keep Kodi 18 across as I have that shared database. Or I have to purchase a new box for the living room to replace my Wetek Hub and another one for the bedroom. And that leave me with my old current NAS that isn't powerful enough to run Owncloud.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I am indeed looking at purchasing a RPi4 - however, I have two fairly recent smart tv and I am questioning the need to have an additional box to run Kodi to play a video when the tv's are capable of playing it themselves.

    The point of Kodi for me is to keep track of watch status from my library. I am looking at buying a RPi4 to upgrade my NAS (an old Seagate GoFlex running Archlinux) and install Plex Media Server. I then just have to install the plex app on both TV and that will achieve my requirement of keeping track of my watch status and will only require one purchase.

    That should also be able to run Owncloud (or similar) that I wanted to do since Google Photo have limited the storage space available.

    The statement makes it very clear (or so I thought) that there will be no LE10 release for Amlogic devices. Nightlies exist but mainline kernel support for Amlogic chips is not where it needs to be; there are challenges with hardware coding. I've been poking mainline u-boot support for the older WeTek devices and now have Play2 working well (within the caveats on hardware decoding) but I've been unable to get the Hub to boot so haven't done any work on it in some time - I need to dig up the vendor files and test the hardware with those again. If the status of decoding improves we can release something in the future. S912 is easier since it has more CPU grunt and you can disable problem hardware decoderss and use software decding on 1080p content (forget 4K). Same for newer chipsets with have even more CPU power. There is currently nobody working on the hardware decoding as I don't write code and nobody is funding commercial development. So not likely to see progress anytime soon, but we'll get there at some point. The images in my team share Index of /testing/ are a little more usable then current nightlies due to experimental ffmpeg work. Note - the "box" image is the one to use with any device that uses vendor U-boat

    thank you for your reply, your announcement was giving me hope that my box wouldn't be redundant. Although I can carry on using Kodi 18 for a while I will have to have a look for an alternative.

    Thank you

    Hello there,

    Thank you for the information and the hard work provided by the libreELEC team!

    May I just confirmed that my understanding of the announcement is correct, LE v10 which will run Kodi 19 - Matrix will be available for Wetek Hub (Soc S905-H revision C) done the line?

    Also, following the announcement from coreELEC to stop supporting amlogic S905 & S912 due to their kernel not being maintained by amlogic any longer. Is there plan to stop supporting those SOC in the near future?

    I have been using my Wetek Hub with a MySQL database and Kodi for couple of years now and I am very happy with it.

    However, I wanted to be able to used it an another TV and since I do not want to buy another box I am trying Plex that is easily install on smart tv.

    Anyway, I install plex-media-server using Docker - so far all is working fine out of the box, managed to add both Movie and TV Show folders (files are located on a NAS - mounted using systemd to /storage) Did not have to change anything to have access to the plex webpage as mentioned in other topic.

    I added the correct file locations using the configure option from Kodi addon menu. However, there is no option to add the Music library location.

    Searching the great web, it seems I need to used docker create\ to change any options. Is that right? And if so, is there a way to extract the current docker container options ?

    Thank you for your time,

    Hello all,

    I am about to buy a new tv for the bedroom, and looking at options to run Kodi on it as well. The two options I am thinking of at the moment are:

    1) Amazon Firestick 4K - however, I am not sure that relying on wifi to read the files stored on the NAS will be the best option.

    2) Raspberry Pi 4b - would be ideal from what I read on the Kodi forum and will be connected through Gigabit, however, with LibreELEC installed would I be able to control the Pi with the tv remote? (I currently can with LibreELEC installed on a Wetek Hub). And the most important for me, would I be able to start the Pi from the TV remote?


    New user on a wetek hub and loving it - much faster, thank you for the hard work!

    I had an issue with the previous version due to Kodi being set originally as 4k display, the screen was black and had to lower the resolution down to 1080p. Is it resolve with this update?


    Sorted! After a bit of digging around the web, it's an issue with video resolution. I have a 4K TV and I had to change the resolution on the 8.2.5 to 1290p then upgrade to version 9.0.1.

    Now it works like a charm and I can watch my 4K show on my NAS without buffering or shuttering!

    Hello there,

    Installed LibreElec on a mscard - booted the Wetek Hub and got connected through SSH. Realised I didn't installed the latest version, so wget the latest 9.0.1 and rebooted as per wiki.

    Rebooted fine, copied my advancedsettings.xml passwords.xml sources.xml mediasources.xml from my archlinux computer as I am sharing a msql database, make sure the file permission were matched to what it was before.

    Now the hub boot up, but the screen remain black, see kodi log below. Seems there are errors connecting to the NAS (where the files and the mysql database is located)

    Kodi.log attached


    Any help would be appreciated
