    I also have an Onkyo TX-NR626 connected to an Tanix TX6 with Allwinner H6. For me it works out of the box:

    I use the VP9 test image and playing movies, music and Youtube all works well. But I remember that I once had problems with Onkyo and HDMI and resolved it with a new HDMI cable.

    Thank you. Changing the HDMI cable: same as before. But I have a Q6+ TV-Box. Built the latest custom image and... it works! So I build more images with following results:

    R40 (BananaPi): no sound

    H3 (Libretech ALL-H3): no sound

    H5 (Libretech ALL-H5): no sound and no picture (Reminder: Only over Onkyo Receiver)´

    H6 (OrangePi 3): working, even passthrough working.

    This leaves me puzzled. Maybe only *.dtb issue? Next step maybe trying Armbian...

    With newly flashed SD-card sound works fine on TV. Connected to my AV-Receiver (Onkyo TX-NR626) after booting: On surface there is a click every now and then, but HDMI and sound indicators flashing (handshake problem?). Playing video no sound at all. This affects all Allwinner chips, H3, H5, H6 and R40. I tried several options (Sound always on, fixed samplerate to 44.1 kHz...) but no change at all.

    Kodi log (ALSA):

    CAESinkALSA::Initialize - Opened device "hdmi:CARD=allwinnerhdmi,DEV=0,AES0=0x04,AES1=0x82,AES2=0x00,AES3=0x00"

    CAESinkALSA::InitializeHW - Unable to open the required number of channels

    CAESinkALSA::InitializeHW - Your hardware does not support AE_FMT_FLOAT, trying other formats

    CAESinkALSA::InitializeHW - Using data format AE_FMT_S24NE4

    (the same with other devices)

    Any suggestions?

    I tried to run the system on rk3399-roc-pc, but it stopped when it reached "Starting kernel ...".

    I also had troubles getting this to work. My working SD: LibreELEC from 20210429. Also I burned a brand new SD-Card. In extlinux.conf replace rk3399-roc-pc with rk3399-roc-pc-mezzanine (if under windows you musn't use standard editor, please use notepad++ or something equivalent). I hope it will work for you...

    Did a little bit of testing over Easter. As far as I can tell, the Linux part is working, but on the dtb side there seems to be some patching to do. My testings (Images from yesterday):

    ROC-RK3399-PC: Booting. Libreelec Logo, Resizing ok. Reboot: Libreelec Logo...and nothing. (See attached File)

    NanoPC-T4: everything's fine

    Nanopi-M4V2: Bootloop, as I had in 9.2 until rk3399-nanopi-m4v2 was available.

    Khadas Edge-V: Booting and starting. Ethernet took long to configure and leads to adress => no ethernet. Wifi fine.

    RockPro64: After removing emmc everything's fine.

    Rockpi 4: Everything's fine.

    Try the latest version image 20191008. Preferably with UART output.

    Since you have this board, could you verify #5 as well? If you have a Netflix account you can also test (and most likely get the same results) with the Netflix Add-On. Thanks!

    Since I don't have a Netflix account i tried it with Amazon prime. I can confirm that Kodi crashes. Kodi Crash Log is available, but maybe you will find this useful (from Kodi.old.log):

    The new version of the LE images 20190820.


    just wanted to test new Image on nanopi-k2. As for older Images (since June) Nanopi won't boot. Unfortunately my Computer crashed, so I am not able to do an update from May Image (not longer on my Computer or yandex). Is it possible to upload an May Image (before 16.05) on yandex, so that I can make further Tests with update Images? Thanks for your kindness.

    Can you show UART log ?

    I temporarily stopped building aarch64. What exact version of the image was used ?

    I did a git pull today on your amlogic-master branch. Compiling (ARCH=arm) leads to the same result as above.

    Hello Balbes150,

    For Nanopi-K2 Building u-boot.bin (U-Boot? fip?) seems to be broken. LibreELEC does not boot from a freshly burned sd-card (Monitoring U-Boot via minicom: U-Boot bin loaded and halt)., but update from a working Card (from 26.05) will boot (branch amlogic-master).

    Now the bad News (build aarch64 amlogic-master):

    - TV (pvr.vdr.vnsi from branch amlogic master): leads to reboot (w/o HW-accerleration: playing with stutters)

    - Video Playback: leads to reboot (w/o HW-accerleration: ok)

    - Music Playback via UPNP: ok

    - installing addon (weather yahoo): ok

    All in all LibreELEC "feels" slower, maybe depending on LAN?

    Hi Balbes150,

    did a quick check for Nanopi-K2:

    booting: ok

    config: ok

    Ethernet: ok; no WiFi (no driver, I assume)

    edit advancedsetting.xml + Passwords.xml; reboot : ok, everything noticed.

    installed pvr.vnsiserver: test HD: ok; SD ok (after setting aspect ratio to 16:9 manually)

    Video H264 1980x1080p: ok

    Video H264 720x576i self-encoded ok, downloaded: for a few seconds picture and sound are far too quick (picture quicker than sound). This leads to Audio/Video async. Another test with h/w acceleration disabled: sound ok, no picture, just plain white screen.

    Video at all times: skipping for- / backwards leads mostly into crash (Kodi.log.old: ERROR: Got MSGQ_ABORT or MSGO_IS_ERROR return true).

    That's for now. If you need futher information, let me know.
