Download issues should be solved by now. If not, they should be soon.
Jernej, consider returning projects/Allwinner/devices/H6/patches/linux/14-eMMC-workaround.patch to master? This problem was solved only in this way. All this time i build LibreElec manually. Which is somewhat inconvenient.
Nope. It's extremely ugly thing, which halves transfer speed. It was introduced only because I didn't have understanding how to properly write eMMC DT node. Now eMMC works for me on Tanix TX6 box and OrangePi 3 with full speed without issues. If it doesn't work for you, then root cause must be found and fixed.
MusicPi You are on your own with most issues. I don't intend to invest much time in A20, since most peripherals are different than on H3 or newer which I know pretty well. Mostly I just collect interesting patches now and then.
Regarding AP6210, you just need to add proper txt config to brcmfmac_sdio-firmware package. Everything else should be already present.
Probably it needs box specific DT file and thus box specific image. You might still have luck with some other H3 image.
I haven't tried beelink x2 img , do you think it will work ?
Both are cheap TV boxes, so there is a chance.
May i also have a link with the latest beelink x2 image with the correct dtb file if you think its gonna work?
What is correct dtb? I don't have such box, so if Beelink X2 image will work, then great, otherwise bad luck...
Hi guys im new to this stuff, can someone make a port for mxq pro 4k 1g/8g with allwinner h3 , i have tried everything without success, thanks in advance
Did you try Beelink X2 image? Anyway, I don't see mxq pro support in kernel, so someone must write DT first if Beelink X2 image doesn't work for you.
I would like to try that.
Cool, just fyi, I can't support you with detailed help, I'll give you just some pointers.
So in theory I need to apply the patches from 'LibreELEC.tv/packages/multimedia/ffmpeg/patches' ?
The player i would like to use is indeed mpv. Do you know where i can find the patch ?
Would I also need patches from libreelec for the kernel ? It seems so because when looking at linux/patches/amlogic/ there is some patches linked to lima.
Should I also use the patches from projects/Allwinner/devices/A64/patches ?
For ffmpeg, you only need v4l2-request-api patches. For kernel, you need projects/Allwinner/patches/linux/, patches 1-5 in their name. Yes, patches from A64 subfolder are needed for HDMI audio. MPV probably only needs this patch: hwdec_drmprime_drm: add hwdec ctx · Kwiboo/[email protected] · GitHub
lima doesn't have to do anything with video decoding.
I'm new in this forum and I'm very happy there are still people keeping the A20 alive.
Today I compiled an image for my BananaPro successfully (LibreELEC (community): devel-20200512111359-cf26681 (A20.arm)).
Banana Pro is not supported, only BananaPi (non-pro). If you used that image then that's probably the reason why you're experience problems.
Since I want to use it für my music collection only, I'm interested in this features:
- SATA support for SSD (AHCI)
- touchscreen support (fex-files)
- IR-remote control support (sunxi-ir)
- on board WLAN support
I guess SATA and IR should work (never tested it). Wifi would probably work, if proper config file is added. Not sure what you mean with touchscreen. I enabled most drivers in kernel. So, if it is already supported in mainline kernel, then it works.
Is it possible to get this working on another distribution like debian or gentoo ?
Sure, "just" pick patches from LE build system. Note, Kodi on LE does HW video decoding with patched ffmpeg and proper use of it. This probably won't work with random video player. I think that mpv needs only one small patch but I didn't try it in a long time. There is also an effort to make proper VAAPI layer which would be useful for most players but it currently doesn't work with latest kernel and wouldn't work with HW decoding improvements from LE without modifications. That's because kernel API for this kind of VPU HW is not yet stable and changes from kernel to kernel.
Btw. whats the status with mali and deinterlacing on H3? Are both active now?
What do you mean by active? Mali is GPU and without it, you wouldn't see GUI, ever. But if you mean if mesa is used, yes it is. Binary driver was replaced few months back with mesa.
Regarding deinterlacing, no it's not in yet. It needs some more debugging.
Addons should be updated now.
Addons in repo must be updated. In the meantime, you can try to build addon by yourself.
Should there be a place for the final version of the last Kodi version (eg: version 18) for download?
There is no images with Kodi 18 for Allwinner that you can download from LE website. Maybe someone will provide them on forum as community images.
Please, is there a way to know that the PVTV IPTV Simple Client will work again without having to install a new build
You don't need to update image, you have to wait for addons update. They will probably be updated soon but I can't tell you when exactly.
That addon is not supported by Allwinner images because it would overwrite Cedrus improvements. You can only use DVB devices supported in mainline kernel. All DVB drivers should be enabled.
No, I don't have any A10 board. However, your statements are contradictory. Link name mentions broken H264 decode but you linked to error message which clearly come from GPU. GPU and VPU have nothing in common. Full HD screen only needs about 8 MiB of memory for GUI (used by GPU). Hard to say anything...
