    There is interesting information about co-running the same image on two platforms simultaneously rk3399 and rk3328. This will further allow to have a shared image for rk3399 and rk3328 when upgrading via TAR. The details there is in this topic.

    It would be useful to test this option on different rk3399 and rk3328. By the way, the latest Libreelec and Armbian images use a common u-boot-2019.10, the difference is only in the configuration for the two platforms when building.

    Hi balbes150 ,


    I tested your two new images:


    1. LE Kernel 4 20191018


    Then the NanoPC-T4 will boot normally.


    boot -> ok

    WiFi -> ok

    WiredNet -> ok

    EMMC -> ok

    Bluetooth -> ok

    Video -> ok (max 1920x1024x60Hz)

    Sound (HDMI) -> ok

    Sound (USB) -> ok

    CEC -> N/A


    EMBY -> ok

    TVHeadend Client -> ok


    2. LE Kernel 5 20191019 with Boot from SD and LE on USB


    boot -> ok

    WiFi -> ok

    WiredNet -> ok

    EMMC -> ok

    Bluetooth -> ok

    Video -> ok (max 1920x1024x60Hz)

    Sound (HDMI) -> ok

    Sound (USB) -> ok

    CEC -> ok


    EMBY -> not tested

    TVHeadend Client -> not tested


    I can't test the dualboot option, I only have a NanoPC-T4 and no other RK device.

    Hi balbes150 ,


    I'll test your new images once next week.

    There I have vacation and time :-)

    JerryPenguin About the schedule question - It takes as long as it takes and you are requesting too much ;) (new Kernel and new Kodi).


    What WiFI module are you using (chipset) and does it work in other images with the 5.3 kernel, e.g. armbian? USB works correctly, but I think in the kernel config for LibreElec 5 / RK3399 some required modules are disabled. I can upload a working build with the "old" Kodi and the new kernel (I just applied the pull request 3560 to the mainline).

    Hi zeus24 ,


    I know that all too well and please don't take my question as impatience.


    Rather, I offer myself as a tester for the platform and may be able to contribute something.


    I myself am a sysadmin and Python/Skrip developer but not a kernel or LE developer.


    Therefore I am grateful to you and balbes150 that you also consider the not so common SOC NanoPC-T4.


    Many greetings

    The latest versions of Libreelec (and Armbian) added the to start the system from USB media. Can you test this new feature on your T4 ? Details can be found in this topic.

    Hallo balbes150 ,


    so, I tested your new image LibreELEC-RK3399.arm-9.80-devel-20191011084333-6e9040d-box.img.gz (Kernel 4.4) with the DTB for nanopc-t4 directly from the image.


    Step one:

    Burn image to SD

    Change DTP to your nanaopt-t4.dtb


    Step two:

    Burn image to USB

    Change DTP to your nanaopt-t4.dtb


    Step three:

    Insert the SD card into the NanoPC-T4 and connect the USB to a free USB3 port.


    Then the NanoPC-T4 will boot normally.



    boot -> ok

    WiFI -> ok

    WiredNet -> ok

    EMMC -> ok

    Bluetooth -> ok

    Video -> ok (max 1920x1024x60Hz)

    Sound (HDMI) -> ok

    Sound (USB) -> ok


    EMBY -> ok

    TVHeadend Client -> ok

    It looks to me like everything's going to be just fine.


    But I have one more question:


    Is there a schedule when I can test a LE image with kernel 5 that works without USB?


    Many greetings and a nice weekend

    Hi balbes150 ,


    at the moment I don't know how to start the NanoPC-T4 from USB, so I haven't tested it yet.


    I have tested your Image with Kernel Version 5: LibreELEC-RK3399.arm-9.80-devel-20191011115114-6e9040d-box.img.gz


    The image starts from SD, the partitions are extended and after the restart the boot process hangs on the SplashScreen of LE, in the upper left corner you can see your LE version.

    I can't find a LOG on the SD Card after that.


    zeus24 :

    Where did you find the LOG entry?



    Many greetings


    PS:

    I'm also testing the Armbian image.

    What is the difference between the images (desktop and normal) ?

    Can you test this test image with kernel 5 on T4 ? On EDGE at me KODI does not start, I am interested that will be on T4 with that DTB which is a part of an image.

    Hallo balbes150 ,


    so, I tested your new image 20190929 with Kernel 5 und the DTB for nanopc-t4 directly from the image.


    boot -> ok

    WiFi -> not ok :-( (no hardware is found and therefore no kernel module is loaded)

    WiredNet -> ok

    EMMC -> ok

    Bluetooth -> not ok :-( (no hardware is found and therefore no kernel module is loaded)

    Video -> ok (max 1920x1024x60Hz)

    Sound (HDMI) -> ok

    Sound (USB) -> not tested


    The first time that CEC works on my NanoPC-T4 and a connected TV (here Panasonic).

    That's great! :-) :thumbup:


    EMBY -> not tested

    TVHeadend Client -> not tested


    Many greetings


    Jerry

    New image 20190928 with support for new binary Addons for KODI-19.

    Hallo balbes150 ,


    so, I tested your new image 20190928 with the DTB for nanopc-t4 directly from the image.


    boot -> ok, not so fast as under Armbian

    WiFI -> ok

    WiredNet -> ok

    EMMC -> ok

    Bluetooth -> ok

    Video -> ok (max 1920x1024x60Hz)

    Sound (HDMI) -> ok

    Sound (USB) -> ok


    EMBY -> ok

    TVHeadend Client -> ok


    The image runs stable and the CPU load is very low.

    For me a successful image.

    I've been using it for 24h and just transferred it to my EMMC.


    Thank you very much for your wonderful work.


    Many greetings

    Hello, everybody,


    I use the latest LE image of balbes150 for my NanoPC-T4 (RK3399).

    This is a Kodi 19 Alpha Image!


    I now have everything (I need and can test) running except for the TVHeadend HTSP client, which wants to have a kodi.binary.global.gui in version 5.12.0 (Kodi 18) and from Kodi 19 I have a 5.14.0.


    So my question is, is there an (Alpha-) Repo for Kodi 19 with which I can test the TVH HTSP Client?


    Many greetings
